Washed ashore on a heavily foliated island, Popeye, Olive and Wimpy (in his cartoon debut) make themselves at home in a hastily assembled log cabin. While Popeye is out duck hunting, the cabin is besieged by a tribe of hostile Indians. It looks like curtains for Olive and Wimpy until Popeye pulls out the spinach and decimates the howling savages. The official official entry in Fleischer's "Popeye the Sailor" series, I Yam What I Yam is capped by an outrageously "non-P.C." closing gag involving no less than Mahatma Gandhi. Incidental music includes "I'm Against It", written for the 1932 Marx Bros. comedy Horse Feathers by Bert Kalmar and Harry Ruby.
