"Abject Flying Object" is an episode from The All-New Popeye Hour's "The Adventures of Popeye" in association with King Features Syndicate. It originally aired on January 7, 1980 and was directed by Ray Patterson, Carl Urbano, Oscar Dufau and George Gordon. Popeye was voiced by Jack Mercer, Olive Oyl was voiced by Marilyn Schreffler and Bluto was voiced by Allan Melvin.



Olive is frightened by a UFO as she is watering her flowers. Popeye proves it is safe by making friends with the Spaceman. As they make the space traveler feel welcome in Olive's home, Bluto shows up.

Bluto tries to catch the alien so he can get rich showing him to the world on TV. Bluto manages to suck the extraterrestrial into a vacuum cleaner. Before Popeye can eat his spinach to intervene, Bluto sucks up the vegetable too.

This idea actually backfires on Bluto because the alien eats the spinach instead. It turns out the little ET gets super strength from spinach just like Popeye.
