This cartoon is a takeoff of the 1950s television personality "The Continental" (yes, the same guy who has been so often spoofed by Christopher Walken on Saturday Night Live). Much to Popeye's disgust, Olive is so enchanted by the French-accented TV star "The International" that she even wears a dressing gown while watching his show. Hoping to take advantage of Olive's moonstruck behavior, Bluto shows up at her doorstep, disguised as "The International"--right down to the phony Gallic dialect. Olive is completely hoodwinked, but Popeye isn't so easily taken in, and chaos (in the form of a sword duel) ensues. Heard throughout the cartoon is the popular ballad "Cocktails for Two."
