Pre-Hysterical Man is Popeye's 154th theatrical cartoon, produced by Famous Studios and released on March 26, 1948.


Popeye and Olive are atop the highest peak in Yellowstone Park; Olive falls off into a deep hole, where a Bluto-like caveman and a dinosaur are still living. Olive almost ends up eaten by the dinosaur, but the caveman (longing for a woman) saves her. Olive falls for him, but Popeye, noticing his girlfriend's absence, comes down and saves her from the caveman. They fight it out; the caveman stuffs the sailor into a not-quite-empty spinach can and feeds him to the dinosaur, but, of course, Popeye breaks out and wins the day.
