The secret island is located by the adventure characters, and a reactivated volcano is discovered to be underneath it. Meanwhile, the comic characters are trying to get the Professor to laugh by going through comedy routines. The comics are finally set free after the Professor learns to laugh when he sees his own reflection in a mirror. All the characters board the Professor's submarine to escape the island, but it becomes lodged between two boulders. Popeye saves the day by eating his spinach and freeing the submarine just before the volcano erupts.
The final scene has all of the characters lunching on the White House lawn. As they await the President they learn that he will be with them as soon as he's through laughing at the comics' section of the newspaper.
