In these cartoons, Popeye and Olive travel back to prehistoric times, ancient Greece and the Sherwood Forest. They visit Plymouth Rock and the Old West, then battle assorted baddies in the Egyptian desert, the freezing Arctic and the Ozarks. Of course, Bluto is back as Popeye's number-one nemesis, tackling the sailor man as a rival lumberjack, a fanatic flying ace, and a lecherous vaudeville hypnotist. But thats not all. Popeye also has his fists full with a pair of pet dogs, irritating houseflies, and a quartet of spinach-hating, sound-alike nephews. He ultimately meets his match when Olive decides to throw her hat in the ring and makes a run for U.S. president!

The series focuses on the personal stories of the fascinating characters who created and shaped the genre - from the Carter Family, Jimmie Rodgers, Bill Monroe and Bob Wills, to Hank Williams, Patsy Cline, Johnny Cash, Merle Haggard, Loretta Lynn, Charley Pride, Willie Nelson, Dolly Parton, Emmylou Harris, Garth Brooks and many more - as well as the times and places in which they lived.
