Popeye goes to visit Olive Oyl and, while she answers the door, Swee'Pea crawls out. Popeye volunteers to take him out. At the zoo, the baby escapes from his carriage and enters the elephant's cage, then the crocodile's and finally the hippopotamus's. While he is unharmed by the animals, Popeye, following him, is beaten and bitten by them until he gets out his spinach can, defeating the hippopotamus and getting a leopard-riding Swee'Pea back home. Swee'Pea is then scared by Popeye's toy monkey and begins to cry, prompting Olive to hit the sailor with a broom.
Baby Wants SpinachEdit
Baby Wants Spinach is a color remake of 1936's Little Swee'Pea, released by Famous Studios in 1950 as the 174th Popeye cartoon.
Popeye is bringing flowers and candy to Olive Oyl, but she takes the chance to go shopping and leave him to watch over Swee'Pea. The baby follows his stray ball out into the street, but is saved from an incoming trolley by Popeye. A fall from a bridge is also averted, followed by the baby wandering into the zoo in pursuit of his ball. Popeye stops Swee'Pea from being crushed by an elephant, then saves him from a lion's hungry maw. The ball rolls into the alligator pit and the sailor again has to make a dangerous rescue. Finally, Popeye takes out his spinach when facing a gorilla, but the ape causes it to spill out - into Swee'Pea's mouth. The empowered baby is now able to save his protector. When Olive later arrives home, the injured Popeye points her to Swee'Pea and the various new "pets" he has brought from the zoo.
