The Infinite Grace Of Olive Oyl!

Olive--Ms. Oyl if you're nasty--looks awkward and clumsy. But that's deceiving, as she can turn the most disastrous fall into a ballet of infinite grace and beauty.

Case in point:

Popeye is sailing to Africa to recruit animals for a zoo. (Really). Meanwhile, a rival evil zookeeper (really, I am NOT making this up) has a couple of his goombas infiltrate Popeye's ship as crew, so they can thwart the mission.

But how?

Hmmm...let's see how well this works...

You happened, you gorgeous thing--YOU happened!!

From Popeye #16 (1951), as reprinted in Classic Popeye #16 (2013)
