Plot

Spinach Fever-02
Popeye takes Olive out for a night on the town to a discotheque called The Slipped Disco. Wimpy is the smooth talking, silver-tonged disk jockey and Bluto is Mr. Disco. Popeye and Olive start off with some classic disco dances then they really start cutting it up on the dance floor.

When Bluto comes strutting on the floor, Olive gets weak in the knees for his fancy moves. Bluto picks Olive to dance with him, which gets Popeye a little hot under the collar with jealousy. They go back and forth cutting in on each other to put the moves on Olive. Before long, Olive has enough of Bluto's dancing but he will not let her go so she calls for Popeye to come to her rescue. With the help of his spinach, he puts Bluto in his place and shows Olive some steps of his own. His fancy footwork makes a big hit on the floor and Wimpy announces them the winners of the disco dance contest.
