Popeye was voiced by Jack Mercer, Swee'Pea was voiced by Marilyn Schreffler and Bluto was voiced by Allan Melvin.



Popeye and Swee'Pea are out to have some wintertime fun. Popeye takes Swee'Pea on his sled to the frozen lake to teach him how to skate. But when Bluto sees them, he decides to have a little fun of his own.

Bluto naturally believes he is a better skater than Popeye and should be the one to teach Swee'Pea how to skate. Bluto does everything to sabotage Popeye like burying him in snow and tricking him into falling through the ice.

When Bluto's schemes puts Swee'Pea in danger, however, Popeye resorts to his spinach.
