Popeye is taking Olive on a boat ride when she spots a pirate ship. They are soon captured, and Popeye has to rescue Olive from the (initially charming) pirate captain. He tries tricks, like dressing in drag, but until the spinach, no luck. Fortunately, a passing swordfish reading a Popeye comic book recognizes him and feeds him the spinach on the comic cover.

Did You Know?
When this short aired on television, the sequence where Popeye removes the disguise was cut presumably due to topless nudity (the chest was designed feminine inside the dress Popeye was wearing as he strips to his underwear). It is unclear if the cut scene still exist, as all television prints have the scene missing. See more
