The Story of Popeye

Popeye the Sailor Man has been a favorite cartoon character for generations.

Popeye the Sailor Man cartoonFor over 75 years, generations have viewed the comedic actions of a unique figure in film history, Popeye the Sailor man.

Popeye is the spinach-eating cartoon swab created for the "Thimble Theatre" comic strip on January 17, 1929 by E.C. Segar.

Popeye cartoons include his favorite pals such as Olive Oyl (sometimes spelt as Olive Oil), Brutus (Bluto), Swea' Pea (also spelled as Sweat Pea) and other comic characters. Read more about the 85th anniversary of Popeye the Sailor Man.

"Betty Boop" was also born from that era and Max Fleischer who was a great fan of "Thimble Theatre," plucked Popeye, Olive Oyl and Bluto from the funny papers putting each into one animated film.

On July 14th, 1933, the comic strip trio appeared in one of the Betty Boop entries titled, "Popeye the Sailor." Popeye passed the test and his own series began three months later.

Popeye has appeared in comic books, television cartoons, arcade and video games, hundreds of advertisements and peripheral products, and including a 1980 live-action film directed by Robert Altman starring comedian Robin Williams as Popeye. Read more about the story of Popeye.

Some people might spell Popeye the Sailorman as Popeye the Sailerman, Salor, Salour by mistake or Pop Eye. Popeye cartoons include his favorite pals such as Olive Oyl (sometimes spelt as Olive Oil), Brutus (Bluto), Swea' Pea (also spelled as Sweat Pea) and other comic characters.

Remembering Popeye’s Bumblebee

On January 17, 2014 Popeye the Sailor turned 85 years old.  The sailor man with a passion for spinach and Olive Oyl made his debut in the Thimble Theatre comic strip created by E.C. Segar. For decades Segar’s work, including his successors Bud Sagendorf and Bobby London, have been reprinted for new generations to discover.  Although reprinted in comic book format during the 1940’s and 1950’s the work of one Popeye’s greatest cartoonists has been slighted: Bela “Bill” Zaboly.
