Frustrated over a lack of customers, sinister hypnotist I. Stare decides to pick a name from the phone book and put that person under a hypnotic spell. Turns out that the name he chooses is Olive Oyl, who immediately upon answering the phone goes into a trance and begins walking helplessly toward Stare's office. While Popeye frantically pursues the mesmerizing Olive all over town, the poor girl unknowingly walks to the top of several skyscrapers, and ultimately to the skeleton of a building under construction. In a last ditch rescue effort, Popeye downs his spinach--and turns into Superman! This cartoon brilliantly manages to invoke memories of the 1934 classic A Dream Walking without repeating any of the key gags from the earlier effort.
