Popeye is sightseeing down the streets of New York City with Olive and Swee'Pea in his stroller. Olive wants to go shopping and, while Popeye is helping her in the dressing room, Swee'Pea wanders out of the store with a dog. Popeye does not want Olive to know he lost Swee'Pea so he leaves dummies in the store as he goes to find him.

Popeye ends up chasing Swee'Pea through the busy subway, on top of The World Trade Center, on helicopters, on boats and on the Statue of Liberty. Popeye finally resorts to eating his spinach to catch him. He manages to get back to the dress shop as Olive is finishing her shopping spree.
