Rival cabdrivers Popeye and Bluto carry on a lively "taxi war" in the middle of downtown, with Bluto playing unfair by literally stealing Popeye' customers. Finally, Popeye manages to persuade Olive Oyl to choose his cab over Bluto's, whereupon another battle royale ensues. Kidnapping Olive and snatching Popeye's ubiquitous spinach can ("You ain't eatin' no spinach in THIS picture!), Bluto drives directly into the path of a speeding train--and now the "fun" REALLY begins. This cartoon offers one of the earliest examples of Popeye's enthusiastic "scat" singing.
