Popeye's unconventional torpedo-loading technique get him a mild punishment: he's ordered to stand at attention. Just then, the enemy attacks. He remains at attention, even as a bomb throws him to the top of the mast, where his commander finally notices and orders him to get the planes. Popeye fires on them, but this only draws return fire. He eats his spinach, then turns into a plane himself and attacks.Written by

This WWII era short has Popeye getting screamed at by his senior officer and he is forced to stay in attention. Just as this happens some planes start attacking his ship and it's battle time.
FLEETS OF STREN'TH isn't nearly one of the better Popeye shorts but there's enough action to make it worth sitting through. Obviously the ship comes under attack and before you know it Popeye is pretty much battling everyone on his own. The highlight of the film is when Popeye pretty much becomes a plane and flies into the sky to take on the enemies. As you'd expect, the animation throughout is top-notch and there are some funny moments sprinkled throughout the short.
