- One of the first animated cartoon cross-overs.
- Popeye debuted in a Betty Boop cartoon, but the cartoon focuses on Popeye, Olive and Bluto.
- The Betty Boop Doll (1930s) and Bimbo plush dolls appear as prizes on the ball-toss scene.
- Cartoon Network had to remove a scene where Olive, Bluto and Popeye play ball-toss, the reason for this removal was because the target was an African-American stereotype, but the scene has been restored in newer DVD releases.
- The cartoon references "Popeye's movie contract" with the Fleischers in a newspaper.
- Betty Boop is depicted as a Samoan, performing her Hula routine for the second time since Betty Boop's Bamboo Isle.
- Olive Oyl does not appear to mind Betty dancing suggestively beside Popeye.
- Olive's voice features a strong Brooklyn accent as provided by Bonnie Poe, this was to differentiate the character from Betty Boop, as Poe supplied the voice for both characters. Later in the Popeye series, Mae Questel created a new voice for Olive based on actress Zasu Pitts' voice and mannerisms, also using Pitts' signature catchprase, which was "Oh, Dear!".
- Bonnie Poe performs the second verse of the opening song as Betty, followed by William Pennell.
