Spinach Packin' Popeye is Popeye's 127th cartoon, produced by Famous Studios and released on July 21, 1944.


After donating some blood, Popeye is told to rest, however, he has a boxing match against Bluto the Bruiser and has no intentions to rest. Listening to the fight on the radio, Olive is shocked to hear Popeye has lost. When he comes to see her soon afterwards, she calls him a weakling and says their relationship is over, expressing her interest in the supposedly-stronger Bluto. Popeye shows her his picture album to elicit a flashback of when he fought the mighty Sindbad (in Popeye the Sailor Meets Sindbad the Sailor) and his Rokh bird, then reminds her of his defeat of Ali Baba's forty thieves (as seen in Popeye the Sailor Meets Ali Baba's Forty Thieves). Olive still wants to leave him, but then it is all revealed to be a nightmare Popeye has while resting after giving blood. He reunites with Olive, who is happy to agree he is the strongest as he lifts up her house.


After the flashback sequence from Popeye the Sailor Meets Ali Baba's Forty Thieves, Olive appears to be floating above the floor. She is lowered as the camera pans down while Popeye walks down the wall, this was due to her production cel not being positioned properly.
