Popeye and Brutus compete for customers- and for Olive Oyl's affections. Popeye opens a car wash. Brutus has a car wash across the street. When Olive brings a long convertible to Popeye to be washed, Brutus mixes the controls, and Olive's car comes out shrunken to midget size. Olive is burned up, and Brutus takes her across the street to his beautiful "Brutus Beauty Bath." Olive swoons over Brutus, and he chases her. Popeye comes to the rescue and gets the worst of it. Then he eats spinach. Popeye knocks Brutus' car wash apart, and it settles back to Brutus' junkyard. Brutus lands in front of Popeye's Car Wash in the form of a statue spraying water from his mouth and ears. Popeye and Olive hop in the car and drive into his car wash singing. Wimpy makes a humorous guest appearance.
