"Golden-Type Fleece" is a 1960 episode of Popeye the Sailor.


Popeye tells Swee'Pea the story of Jason and the Golden Fleece. In this version, Popeye plays Jason, Wimpy is the King, the Sea Hag plays the Queen, and Brutus plays Jupiter, Neptune and the Centaur. After the King sends Popeye to retrieve the Golden Fleece, the sailor's singing annoys Zeus and Neptune, but he escapes their thunderous attacks. He also escapes the Goon-like mermaids and the Sea Hag. He lands on the Hag's island, follows a sign that says, "Golden Fleece This Way," and ends up in a sideshow tent containing golden fleas. He fights the Brutus Centaur, wins, and then it is back to the present. In a surprise ending, Popeye feels itchy, and then finds a golden flea which grins at him.
