Olive writes a letter to Popeye: she's through with sailors; it's cowboys for her. Popeye immediately sails off to the West, where he finds, who else, Bluto as the head of the ranch where Olive is enthralled. Bluto gives Popeye a wild horse to ride, and, after a few humiliating defeats, Popeye conquers it (and wins back Olive's heart). Bluto punches Popeye out, and into the clutches of what can best be described as a rattlesnake constrictor. Bluto then starts menacing Olive, so Popeye eats his spinach, saves her, and defeats Bluto and his gang.Written by

This is a very good Popeye cartoon, filled with excellent jokes, good sight gags and funny dialog start-to-finish. There is a lot to enjoy in only six minutes here.
It starts off with another "Dear John" letter from Olive Oyl. How many times does poor Popeye have to endure this sort of thing from the most fickle woman in film history? Now, Olive has decided that the Old West is a lot more exciting than the sea, so she has dumped Popeye again and gone out to live on a ranch. Her note reads: "Dear Popeye, I'm way out west, where men are men! Sailors are all right, but cowboys....Yippee! Signed, Olive Oyl. P.S. Goodbye. P.S.S. Forever.
Ever-faithful Popeye jumps in his boat and goes after her. We see a very humorous map showing Popeye's route....a route one could only take in a cartoon! Once he arrives at the ranch, which looks like it is somewhere near Montana, Popeye gets an early look on his competition. Of course, it's Bluto whom Olive calls "Fatty" in this cartoon but uses it as a term of endearment.
In a nutshell, Bluto gives Popeye a bucking bronco to tame, knowing the horse will pulverize him (which it does) but you know who is going to prevail in the end......and get his fickle girl back.
I especially enjoyed Popeye's mumblings, such as "This must be the place because I don't see anything other place.." Later, Bluto calls him Tenderfoot and Popeye responds, "My feet aren't tender; I always walk this way!" The ending song, sung by Olive, states, "I don't want a cowboy; I'll take you and how, boy. My Popeye the sailor man!" (toot toot).
The things poor Popeye does to gain Olive's affection!
