Popeye and Bluto are running for president; it's election day, the vote is tied, and Olive is the only remaining voter. But she won't vote until her chores are done, so Popeye and Bluto compete to cut her wood, plow her fields, and store her hay. And then it's just an old-fashioned fight.

In "Popeye Meets Sindbad (Bluto)," Popeye's perennial enemy almost outshines him. Bluto is in rare form, his rich, bass voice rendering with gusto a catchy tune. He is also charismatic as a comic relief. This cartoon gem, one of Popeye's best, comes in vibrant colors thanks to having been digitally revamped.
Popeye walks around while singing his theme song and punches various things, followed by a sing-along.
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.

Olive Oyl's screenplay for an Aladdin movie comes to life and Popeye battles for control of a genie, in the last of the three Popeye color specials
Popeye and Olive are at the premiere of Popeye's new movie. He gets a little too wrapped up in the movie, interacting with it at various points, and even handing the screen version of himself a can of spinach. The movie itself is the story of Aladdin, minus the songs and about half the footage of the short it's cut from.
The first Olympics, starring Hercules (looking, but not quite sounding, like a really pumped-up Bluto), who challenges anyone to do the same feats as him. Popeye takes that challenge, of course. First, they battle animals, with Bluto pulling the skins off two wild elephants and Popeye turning three lions into a nesting set. The discus throw doesn't go well, with Herc's disc swooping Popeye into Herc's hand. The javelin is even worse for Popeye, with Herc throwing him all the way to the moon. This gives him a chance to go after Olive in typical Bluto fashion; her cries of help reach Popeye, who prays to the Greek goddess Spinachia, who delivers a can of spinach to him.

Popeye's been feeding a turkey in his backyard; it's Thanksgiving day, and his (3) nephews are all set to turn the turkey into the main course. But Popeye can't bring himself to do the deed, so he tells them a story about the time he was a pilgrim and a turkey saved his life. Popeye is hunting the turkey, which keeps outsmarting him; he finally corners the bird, which gives him a sob story about being too scrawny to eat. Popeye gives him some spinach, but before the bird can eat it, Popeye is captured by Indians. They tie him to a stake. The turkey, watching, remembers the spinach, which turns the turkey into an eagle. He swoops down, carries off the first batch of Indians and throws them into a mountain; he turns another batch into a totem pole. Popeye finishes his story and sees the boys missing; dinner time! They prepare to serve the turkey his big plate of spinach.
Popeye is hosting three of his western-obsessed nephews on his ranch. To get them to eat their spinach, he tells about how he arrived at the ranch and was humiliated by foreman Bluto until, of course, he ate his spinach.
Two of Popeye's nephews get caught playing with fireworks on the Fourth of July. Popeye takes them away, and they spend the rest of the picture trying to get them back (mostly by getting Popeye away from them).
Popeye donates blood, then dashes off to a boxing match with Bluto. He loses. Olive, who heard this on the radio, rejects him as no longer strong enough for her, and is preparing to join the army (where Bluto apparently is). Popeye stops her at the door, and insists on showing her sequences from two earlier two-reelers to prove his strength, but she's unimpressed. Fortunately, this was all a dream; he awakens in the blood bank, and dashes over to see Olive, who reaffirms her love.

Capt. Jim's Popeye Club was a local Pittsburgh children's television series during the 1970s, which showed Popeye the Sailor Man cartoons. Captain Jim was played by Jim Martin, who is now a puppeteer for Sesame Street. The series was described as a "classic" in 2005, by Bob Karlovits of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. Captain Jim was played by Ted Eckman, not Jim Martin. Jim Martin played the role of Bimbo the Clown, on the Captain Jim Show. Ted took the name Jim because the station preferred not to change the show's name, since the original Captain's name was Jim. Ted Eckman was playing the role of MAJOR TED at WKBN in Youngstown Ohio when he was asked to come to Pittsburgh to take over Captain Jim's Popeye Club. Captain Jim was originally played by Jim Saunders who was later replaced by Ted Eckman, who used the name "Jim" instead of "Ted" was because another person was using the "Captain Ted" name. The "Captain Jim" show is further asserted to have been broadcast from 1959 to about 1965 in an after-school time slot with Popeye cartoons, with this version of the show running for an hour. This broadcast ran on WIIC-TV, now WPXI.
