Popeye prepares to take a nap on a hammock outside his house, but his bulldog's barking disturbs his sleep. He bottles the dog's noise up, but music from a nearby radio store keeps him from falling asleep. In a bit repeated from Sock-a-Bye, Baby, he punches the singer through radio waves. Yet other sounds like a baby's crying and a woodpecker's knocking force him to go inside to take his nap. There, a group of flies bother him until he uses a fan to send them out the window, but a particularly devilish fly remains. It shouts in his ear and teases him until it is caught in Popeye's pipe and thrown to the kitchen - where landing in a spinach can allows it to get as strong as a flyweight champ. It punches Popeye's nose then avoids his fly swatter and hits him with it. It then kicks him into a wall socket, turns his own insecticide against him and even lifts the piano up to be dropped upon the sailor. As Popeye's head protrudes from the wreckage, the fly paints a target on his face and fires a mop at him. Popeye then arms himself with a blunderbuss and shoots away at the bug. Now that the house is full of holes, the fly is able to invite its companions to a dance party on Popeye's head that drives him crazy.
