Plot

The Crunch For Lunch Bunch-02
Cavewoman Olive has her own stone age diner. Cavemen Popeye and Bluto offer to go hunting for something to eat for Olive. Neither one of them have any luck bagging any of the big game dinosaurs.

Because they are taking such a long time, Olive decides to go hunting herself. She gets into trouble and a dinosaur chases her up a tree. Bluto and Popeye rush to her rescue. Popeye tries to draw the dinosaur away from Olive and Bluto tries to lasso it. They both fail so the dinosaur traps them with its tail.

Popeye then breaks a branch for the dinosaur to fetch. It gets the dinosaur to go away, but the tree falls across a canyon. Olive is soon left to hang from a ledge. Popeye blows up a giant flower like a balloon to save her but Bluto pops it.

Next, Bluto grabs a giant leaf to parachute down to her but it rips in half. As he is falling down, he grabs Olive and she falls too. Bluto lands on Popeye and Olive lands in a pterodactyl nest.

Popeye tries to climb up to the nest but he falls. Luckily he lands in a patch of spinach. When he eats it, he flies up and saves her.
