Popeye the Sailor Meets Sindbad the Sailor

The Spinach Roadster is Popeye's 40th theatrical cartoon, released on October 30, 1936, from Fleischer Studios.


Popeye comes to pick up Olive in his old jalopy, and she agrees to go out with him even after seeing Bluto's brand new car. The latter's attempts to sabotage the couple's ride fail until he causes the sailor's vehicle to lose fuel then "helps" to "fix" it. After Bluto steals Olive away, Popeye eats his spinach and repairs his own car, turning it into a spinach-powered vehicle. He takes care of Bluto in a high-speed chase, and also saves Olive, who has gotten herself into the out-of-control spinach roadster.
