Fellow sailors Popeye and Bluto vow to never again lose their heads over a woman. As you might guess, this vow lasts only slightly longer than the opening credits.
Olive Oyl boards the ship and requests a chaperone, and boy, does she gets shown the ship. This very predictable template for future Popeye-and-Bluto-battle-for-Olive's-hand cartoons is redeemed solely by the flexibility of Olive Oyl, both in personality (she's very agreeable to both men for a change) and animation (never has Olive's rubbery, Stretch Armstrong bendability been more amply demonstrated).
