Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Decked out in full "Sherlock Holmes" regalia, Private Eye Popeye literally traces a mysterious phone call to the magnificent home of wealthy Olive Oyl. The lady of the house hires Popeye to guard her precious emerald (which turns the whole room green whenever its case is opened) with his life. Unfortunately, the emerald is almost immediately stolen by Olive's treacherous butler, who leads Popeye on a round-the-world chase. Though the butler has a head start, he is unable to shake the ubiquitous Popeye, who, evidently emulating Tex Avery's "Droopy", pops up in various guises wherever the villain goes.
