Gingerly plowing a course through several high snowdrifts, Popeye arrives at the home of Olive Oyl, where he presents her with a "Christman presink"--a pair of ice skates. As the soundtrack delivers a lilting arrangement of "The Skater's Waltz", the couple takes to the ice, only to have their fun spoiled by the arrival of Bluto (we know he's a bad guy because he's using a huge whip on a miniature sled dog). The ensuing battle between Popeye and Bluto winds up on the ice floes in a surging stream, as helpless Olive nearly tumbles over a high waterfall. A literally star-studded closing gag caps this early entry in Fleischer's "Popeye the Sailor" series.
