** "I'm Mean", of course, about how Bluto is so tough, [[BeyondTheImpossible he even fought himself in a dream and was choked to death, then somehow managed to break the hold afterward]].

The plot is an origin story of sorts -- Popeye arrives in the town of Sweetwater searching for his [[LongLostRelative long-lost pappy]] (Ray Walston) and winds up not only caught in a LoveTriangle with Olive Oyl ([[FaerieTaleTheatre Shelley Duvall]]) and Bluto (Paul L. Smith), but also becoming an adoptive father to an abandoned baby he names Swee'Pea...

Smith, a RealLife BadassIsraeli.[[note]]He grew up in Florida but went to Israel to fight as a volunteer in the Six-Day War, then settled there permanently after he retired from acting[[/note]]

* ReCut: In the North American cut, Swee'Pea says "Popeye" before it cuts to Popeye singing "Swee'Pea's Lullaby". In the European cut, Swee'Pea's "Popeye" is moved to the IrisOut after the song.

* AdultFear: One minute, Popeye and his adopted kid are being congratulated by the entire town for getting rid of the hated tax collector. And suddenly, he realizes that somewhere in the crowd, ''Swee'Pea has disappeared''.

** IDoNotLikeGreenEggsAndHam: Until the last scene, anyway. Seems he never really gave it a chance. This is not as farfetched as it sounds: When the character first debuted, ''way'' [[LongRunner back in 1929]] in ''Thimble Theater'', he found out about spinach the same way.



* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: The "house of ill re-pukes" that Wimpy takes Swee'pea to in order to bet on horses is not only a place of gambling but clearly also a brothel. It's never directly ''stated'', but the following dialogue as Popeye and the Oyls enter the place make very little room for doubt:

* RedEyesTakeWarning: When Bluto sees Olive with Popeye ''and'' the newly found Swee'Pea when she arrives late for their engagement party, he gets the wrong idea and his eyes glow red with anger, complete with a POV shot. See below.

* TheStrategist: Amazingly enough, ''Bluto'' comes across this way for the first half of the movie. He keeps Popeye under scrutiny, from afar. He seems to be sizing him up before actually confronting him.
** Of course he takes a much more hands-on approach after he sees [[ItsPersonal his fiancee with Popeye, holding a baby]].
