This is a story from Popeye, the original series published by Dell in 1948. The series was later renamed to Popeye the Sailor as it continued with other publishers. It has also been reprinted in other comic books by other publishers since then.
As Swee'Pea is walking to Olive's house, he encounters all kinds of dangers like falling safes, gorillas and even hypnotists. Professor H. J. Doze asks Swee'Pea in to help his class with their assignment. All three students give Swee'Pea an action and a command word. Before they can finish, however, Swee'Pea leaves.
Every time someone says a command word, Swee'Pea goes into a hypnotic trance. Swee'Pea leads Popeye and Wimpy all over town before they find the Professor to snap him out of it.
