On this occasion, Olive Oyl is the leader of a pacifist movement, singing the praises of "Brotherly Love" to a huge stadium crowd and a vast radio audience. Inspired, Popeye vows to spread Olive's goodwill message throughout the world by performing a variety of good deeds, enjoying considerable success until he finds himself in the middle of a violent street brawl between the Gas House Boys and the Boiler Makers Social Club. Ultimately, Popeye realizes that "Brotherly Love" can be just as easily doled out with his fists as with his heart. Written by Bob Rothberg and Sammy Timberg, this cartoon's jaunty title song quickly became a standard in the "Popeye the Sailor" series.
