Popeye wants to celebrate the Fourth of July in a "safe and sane" manner, but his two nephews would rather set off their arsenal of very dangerous fireworks. Despite Popeye's efforts to keep the explosives out of reach, the boys manage to ignite the fuse of a huge skyrocket--and nearly get themselves blown to smithereens in the process. Winston Sharples' musical score for Patriotic Popeye later popped up in dozens of the made-for-TV "Popeye" cartoons of the early 1960s.
