This set finishes out Popeye's second decade of screen stardom with cartoons originally released to movie theaters in 1948 and 1949.

Popeye also has his fists full with a pair of pet dogs, irritating houseflies and a quartet of spinach-hating, sound-alike nephews. He ultimately meets his match when Olive decides to throw her hat in the ring and makes a run for U.S.
