Just before heading off to sea, Popeye leaves Olive with a talking parrot that he hopes will remind her of him while he's away. The saucy parrot quickly makes himself at home with a jaunty rendition of the sea chanty "Shiver Me Timbers", and also captivates Olive by reciting love poems written by Popeye himself. Jealous of the parrot, Bluto tries to murder the bird, who escapes to the roof of Olive's house. The rest of the cartoon consists of Popeye trying to rescue the bird, Bluto performing various acts of mayhem, and Olive repeatedly fainting dead away. And, oh yes: Despite his panic, the parrot finds time to "broadcast" the climactic fistfight.
