An all-star Hollywood testimonial is held on the occasion of Popeye's 20th year in motion pictures. As such esteemed guests as Jimmy Durante, Bing Crosby and Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis look on, master of ceremonies Bob Hope (sporting a curious Southern accent) introduces "the man who's been on a spinach diet for 20 years." Rather than make a speech, guest of honor Popeye offers to entertain the crowds with highlights from his past cartoons--and at this point, Popeye's 20th Anniversary morphs into a "cheater", cutting budgetary corners by featuring lengthy excerpts from Tops in the Big Top (1945) and Rodeo Romeo (1946).
