Attending a football game with Popeye, Olive becomes enamored of brawny team captain Bluto--so much so that she hops on the field and begins leading a cheer, spelling out Bluto's name with her scrawny body. Disgusted by this spectacle, Popeye joins the opposing team and squares off against Bluto on the gridiron. For a while, it looks like the one-eyed sailor is outclassed by his rival, but a quick jolt of spinach evens the playing field: indeed, Popeye literally morphs into a "one-man team." Complementing the action is the cartoon's popular title song, originally written in 1933 by Al Sherman, Buddy Fields and Al Lewis. You Gotta Be a Football Hero marks the last "appearance" of the redoubtable William Costello (aka "Red Pepper Sam") as the voice of Popeye.
