"Jeopardy Sheriff" is a 1960 episode of Popeye the Sailor.


Poopdeck Pappy is entertaining Swee'Pea with tales about when he was the most fearless Western sheriff of them all. Popeye chides his father for telling whoppers to a baby, and Poopdeck says he will prove that what he says is true. The old sailor gets into a series of scrapes from which Popeye repeatedly rescues him, until one time when Popeye is overcome. Poopedeck goes after some bank robbers, and after eating a can of his son's spinach, he manages to come to the latter's rescue and capture the gang. Back home, Poopdeck is telling stories to Swee'Pea again, and Popeye is also an avid listener.
