Aunty Bellum
Popeye and Olive go to see about Olive's inheritance from her Auntie Bellum who passed away in the bayou. Of course, Bluto tries to beat them to the treasure. Bluto discuses himself to trick Olive and Popeye so he could get to the treasure first.

They get to her aunt's house in the South, where they are met by her butler Ashtray. Finally, they go to the graveyard, where they run into Maria Claire, Priestess of the Sleep God, and her zombies. She then turns Bluto into a zombie, and Popeye has to resort to the old spinach can to defeat her and her zombies. In the end, she turns out to be the Sea Hag.


  • One of the disguises that Bluto uses in this episode is an impersonation of Clark Gable's role of Rhett Butler from Gone with the Wind.
