Popeye, Olive Oyl, and Wimpy land in America thanks to her rowing. Popeye quickly turns some trees into a log cabin. He hunts for ducks and encounters some pesky Indians while another band of natives surround his two friends in the cabin.
Popeye begins his movie career by singing his theme song, demonstrating his strength at a carnival, dancing the hula with Betty Boop, pummeling Bluto, eating his spinach and saving Olive Oyl from certain doom on the railroad tracks.
Popeye and Olive Oyl go to the rodeo where Bluto performs and impresses Olive. Popeye outdoes him with some fancy riding and steer wrestling. Meanwhile, Bluto makes off with Olive, so Popeye eats his spinach to save her and to stop a bull.
Popeye pushes a baby pram down city sidewalks and lots of noise keeps the kid awake and crying. In typically brutal manner, Popeye deals with the noise makers including a busking Harpo Marx, music school, construction site, and car horns.
Popeye skates over to Olive's house to give her a Christmas present: ice skates of her own. While he's teaching her, Bluto skates up and gets fresh; of course, Popeye fights him. When she ... See full summary »
Popeye, Olive (rowing), and Wimpy (eating) arrive in America by rowboat. Popeye builds a log cabin (by punching some trees) and sets off to gather some ducks. He fights a few indians along the way, but they pose no real threat. But meanwhile, back at the cabin, the indians have been sneaking up and have Olive and Wimpy under siege. Wimpy soon runs away, and runs into Popeye and the ducks he has collected, while Olive has been single-handedly fighting off an endless stream of indians. Popeye eats his spinach and makes short work of the remainder of the tribe, turning the leader into 'Mahatma Gandhi'.Written by

Second film in the series has Popeye, Olive Oyl and Wimpy landing on an island when they're attacked by Indians. There are several funny moments here including a great scene where Popeye goes duck hunting and the Indian coins is another great gag. The spoof of Ghandi also works quite nicely in this politically incorrect short.

**** (out of 4)
Popeye travels to Mexico to see Olive Oyl who's working in a Mexican bar when Bluto shows up to start trouble. Once again we get some great humor with a lot of in coming in the politically incorrect form. The scene where a Mexican bandit shoots Popeye in the head only to have to bullet fly back and hit him is great as is the scene where Popeye and Bluto have a shooting contest.
