Popeye

Kidsfreesouls ‘Most Favorite’ Popeye the Sailor Man, captured the hearts of millions of fans around the world. Introduced as a minor walk-on character, Popeye quickly became the star of THIMBLE THEATER. 
Popeye is what he is — a good-guy underdog with bulging forearms, a mean uppercut and a penchant for canned spinach. The only thing he loves more than spinach and the sea is his flighty, flirty girlfriend, Olive Oyl. 

 

Popeye

Popeye made his first public appearance on Jan. 17, 1929, in Elzie Segar’s then nine-year-old comic strip, THIMBLE THEATRE, which originally revolved around Olive Oyl’s family. Popeye made the jump to the silver screen in a 1933 in a Betty Boop cartoon entitled POPEYE THE SAILOR from the Fleischer Studios.
I YAM WHAT I YAM was the first cartoon in the series of POPEYE cartoons produced by the Fleischer Studios between 1933 and 1942.

In 1937, spinach capital Crystal City, Texas, erected a statue to honor E.C. Segar and Popeye for their positive influence on America’s eating habits, making Popeye the first cartoon character ever immortalized in public sculpture.
Popeye has been a comic-book hero since the early 1930s, both in America and around the globe.

Oh I’m Popeye the Sailor Man
I’m Popeye the Sailor Man
I’m strong to the finich

He’s strong to the finich
‘Cuz he eats his spinich

I’m one tough gazookas
That hates all palookas
That ain’t on the up and square
I biffs ’em and buffs ’em
And always out-roughs ’em
And none of ’em gets nowheres.

So keep good behavior
That’s your one lifesaver
With Popeye the Sailor Man

He’s strong to the finich
‘Cuz he eats his spinich
He’s Popeye the Sailor Man

[backup singers]
Popeye…Popeye…Popeye!
Popeye the Sailor Man!
