Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Stranded on a raft in the middle of the ocean, Popey and Olive spot a derelict sailing ship, the "Sea Witch". Climbing aboard, Popeye assures Olive that he plans to steer the vessel back to civilization--which does not rest well with the cockney-accented ghosts who have called the Sea Witch home since the 17th century. Though Popeye doesn't believe in ghosts, he is forced to change his mind in a hurry, especially when Olive is imperiled by the restless spirits' zany antics. A loose remake of 1934's Shiver Me Timbers, Spooky Swabs was the last "Popeye" cartoon to be released theatrically.
