In this remake of the 1934 "Popeye" cartoon We Aim to Please, Popeye and Bluto are rival restaurant owners who open their diners across the street from each other. When potential customer Wimpy ambles into view, the two hash-slingers fall over one another trying to grab the hamburger-munching moocher's business. Wimpy manages to cadge two free meals by assuring Popeye and Bluto that he will gladly pay them Tuesday, but eventually the "friendly" rivalry degenerates into a full-scale fracas. As the two diner owners throw various foodstuffs and condiments at each other, Wimpy calmly settles down to literally pluck yet another free dinner out of thin air.
