This cartoon confirms what we've suspected all along: Deep down inside, those eternal antagonists Popeye and Bluto are actually bosom buddies who happen to enjoy beating each other's brains out. Indeed, when "Doctor" Bluto embarks upon an expedition to Darkest Africa, Popeye nearly dies of loneliness. And upon learning that Bluto has disappeared in the jungle, Popeye risks life and limb to rescue his "friendly enemy." The background music includes the lilting "Strange Enchantment", written by Frederick Hollander and Frank Loesser for the 1939 Jack Benny vehicle Man About Town.
