Popeye the Sailor

Show Summary

Popeye started out as a character in E.C. Segar's comic strip "Thimble Theatre" in 1929. He first appeared in the strip, which starred Castor Oyl as the main character, in 1929 and quickly became a fan favorite. In due time he had taken over the strip. The sailor made his first theatrical appearance on July 14, 1933 in the Fleischer Betty Boop cartoon "Popeye the Sailor." Following that, Max and Dave Fleischer made him the star of his own cartoon. The Fleischers produced the Popeye cartoon between 1933 and 1942. (Represented here as "Season One") In 1942 Popeye passed into the hands of Famous / Paramount studios, and they turned out Popeye cartoons until 1957. (Represented here as "Season Two") The Fleischer and Famous / Paramount Popeye films are still seen as the true classic Popeye cartoons, despite the many incarnations the sailor has enjoyed over the decades. These films represent a great chunk of American cartoon history.

  • STUPID SPINACH!!!

    7.5
    This show isn't really funny , just entertaining. Here's a quick summary of the show - a sailor named Popeye gets his energy from spinach (stupid) to beat up his enemy Bluto who tries to take his ugly, long legged girlfriend Olive Oil. I think the Popeye spinach thing was a scam to get kids to eat their spinach(it worked on my grandpa!) He would rather eat an apple than apple pie! Well, since this review has to be 100 words long I'm just going to say random short words. I, is, what, a, weird al, gone, a, next, sheep!moreless
  • One of my favorite cartoons growing up!

    9.5
    Was watching this from Youtube as this was one of my favorite cartoons growing up. As I really think that I loved this as you never outgrow cartoons like these. They don't make them like they used to anymore. Popeye is the spinach-eating sailor and his friends like Olive Oil and Swea Pea. And enemies like Bluto/Brutus and the Sea Hag. As his adventures were funny. Love it when he was with Swea Pea as Swea Pea was so adorable. They are all my favorites and that again, wished that they can make cartoons like they used to. Sadly they don't.moreless
  • One of the best cartoons,..EVER!

    Popeye is the best cartoon in the world. The humor was so orginial and it's unique action back then. Today show creators are to sissy to let cartoons brawl once in a while. A cartoon that was the master of shows and even is famous today. This show is enjoyed by children and parents everywhere.
  • I love this show it is very funny classic I don't know where to watch this show but watch it you will die laughing.

    9.9
    This show is about a sailor named "Popeye" and his trusty girlfriend named "Olive oil" olive for short and Popeye's enemy "Bluto". This is a very great show to bad it is not airing anymore . The funny part is that bluto keeps attacking Popeye and olive is their to cheer Popeye on.
