The music editors were Hoyt Curtin and Paul DeKorte. Popeye was voiced by Jack Mercer, while Olive and Swee'Pea were voiced by Marilyn Schreffler.



Olive has a leak in her kitchen faucet, so she naturally calls Popeye the plumber and his assistant Swee'Pea to come and fix it. Popeye tries to fix the leak, but Swee'Pea keeps turning the water meter on and off to compound the situation.

Before he can fix the faucet, Popeye makes a complete shambles out of Olive's house. Even with the help of his trusty spinach, he manages to flood her whole house. When the pipes finally explode, it sends her house flying in the air on a giant water spout.
