Life becomes so harried after Ensign Pulver's prank, he and the Captain are swept off deck during a storm, ending up on a tropical island, a group of ship wrecked nurses, dancing natives, and one very big case of appendicitis.
Opening credits: This story takes place in the waning days of World War II aboard a navy cargo ship operating in the back areas of the Pacific.
What the hell is happening?
Doc: Metamorphosis! Vegetables are turning into men!
During Captain Morton's appendix operation he sings The Joy Boy's radio theme song in his drunken stupor. The Joy Boy's show didn't premiere until 1955, more than 10 years after the movies time setting.
