Olive Oyl notices some crows nonchalantly feasting in her garden. She yells at Popeye to do something about it. Strangely, though, every time Popeye tries to a new ploy to get rid of the crows, Olive derisively laughs at the same guy she ordered to help her out.
The birds aren't much to, er, crow about either, coming off as second cousins of either their kin in Walt Disney's Dumbo (released, ironically, one month after this cartoon) or Heckle & Jeckle. The cartoon is saved by some better-than-average gags, particularly a finale where Popeye satisfyingly turns the tables on Olive's maliciousness.
