When Olive declares that she's just "crazy" about a man in uniform, Popeye and Bluto rush to the nearest Army recruiting center. This being several years before World War 2, the scowling recruting sergeant announces that he has room for only one new soldier. Dutifully, both Popeye and Bluto pull out their respective scrapbooks and show off their qualifications via "living snapshots" from their past movie appearances. "I'm in the Army Now" is the second of Popeye's "cheaters", utilizing stock footage from earlier cartoons as a cost-cutting strategy: in this case, we are treated to highlights from 1933's Blow Me Down, 1934's Shoein' Hosses, and two 1935 entries, Choose Yer 'Weppins' and King of the Mardi Gras.
