Cartoon Summary:

Magoo is on a vacation aboard a luxury liner. He goes out on deck and in the swimming pool (which Magoo believes to be the ocean) he sees... a floating mine! He has got to warn the captain, so he trudges up the ladder to the diving board and reads the non-existent sign, "Turn left to captain's cabin." "Good!", says Magoo. He trudges out onto the diving board and lands into the swimming pool.

"Help! Help!" cries a distraught Magoo. "Man overboard! Throw out the lifelines!" Of course, Magoo is simply splashing around in the swimming pool.

Later, a hungry Magoo is brought a sandwich by an attendant. Magoo, thinking he is delierious, says, "Go away, go away club sandwich." and proceeds to start eating his shoes and shoe laces: "Filet of soul!" says a clever Magoo.

After landing on a tropical island (the immense chest of a floating vacationer) he believes the vacationer is drowning and he tries to save the man. Magoo is confounded and realizes, "The only way to save a drowning man is to render him unconscious" so he proceeds to beat the poor man with his cane.

The captain finally "rescues" them and tries to explain to Magoo what is actually going on. Magoo, thinking the captain is actually a simple steward, thanks him and goes to look for the captain by climbing the ladder (the captain exclaims "Ferme le boat" as Magoo reads: "'Turn left to captain's cabin.' Good!"
