Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Ambling past a municipal swimming pool, Popeye and Bluto are both so entranced by "bathing beauty" Olive Oyl that they immediately apply for the job of lifeguard. After declaring their intentions in song, the two applicants are given a tryout by towel boy Wimpy. Though Popeye proves to be an expert swimmer and diver, Bluto manages to sabotage his efforts to land the job--at least until spinach enters the scene. I Wanna Be a Lifeguard was later excerpted in the 1940 "cheater" Doing Impossikible Stunts.
