PlotA young, attractive female client walks into the shack of Popeye & Olive Treasure Seekers Service Ltd. Popeye looks out his window and sees Bluto spying on him so he closes the shade. He looks around for the room for bugs and does not find any. He misses one bug wearing a trenchcoat and holding a microphone.
The woman wants Popeye to find the valuable Casablanca Falcon. Bluto hears everything until his bug is distracted by a pretty lady fly. Once the woman leaves Popeye's office, a man arrives at the shack of Bluto's Treasure Trove. He wants to hire him to find the same Falcon.
Popeye and Olive go to the train station to board the Orient Express. Bluto also boards in disguised as a business man named Sydney Whitestreet. There he is able to spy on Popeye as he finds his first clue leading to Nick's All-American Cafe in Casablanca.
At the cafe, Popeye finds his second clue: a key ring with four keys. Each key is marked with one letter (C-E-G-C). Bluto steals the keys and starts using them on all the doors in the building. Olive realizes that the letters must refer to the keys on the piano. When she plays the notes, it opens a secret door on the floor. Bluto accidentaly falls on the piano and hits the same four keys.
In the caves below, they find men in robes worshipping the small Casablanca Falcon statue. The men capture them all and throw them in a pit. As the walls close in on them, Popeye eats his spinach. Popeye digs out of the trap, captures the men and recovers the Falcon.
