In this early-1930s precursor to the cult TV series Lost, Popeye and Olive Oyl find themselves shipwrecked on a jungle island. Before long, the two castaways being are threatened by all manner of marauding wildlife, including a cocoanut-drinking gorilla (who uses Olive's head for a "can opener"), an elephant with a VERY long memory, a tobacco-hating boa constrictor, an arrogant lion ("I'm KING!"), and even a moose. But Popeye makes mincement (and fur coats) of them all in an uproariously sadistic slapstick finale. "Wild Elephinks" was later excerpted in the 1935 "cheater" Adventures of Popeye.
