POPEYE THE SAILORMAN has his "75 th" birthday ! the new york museum of television and radio has mounted a special exhibit to honour the hero of many childhoods. i don't know how many popeye stories i had to read to ehbeth in her mis-spent youth. looking back, it sure was a great deal of fun to follow him through the years. i should check and see if there are any popeye comics hidden in the rec room. >>> HERE COMES POPEYE !

There is a life-size statue of Popeye in Crystal City, TX, because that small city calls itself the world spinach capital.

I watched enough Popeye cartoons to last a lifetime. Smile I always thought that Olive Oil needed the spinach more than PopeyeÂ…she was quite the anorexic.

My misspent youth included many hours watching Popeye cartoons, always hosted by some actor playing a cop or mailman. My favorite was Ray Heatherton, the Merry Mailman and father of starlet Joey Heatherton...

Anyhow, Wimpy was my favorite character. He seemed so sophisticated amid all the mayhem.

Popeye first appeared in a comic strip called Thimble Theater. It didn't take long for him to become the star.
Originally, Wimpy was a complex guy instead of the dope scheming to get evermore hamburgers.

i thought the best part of Popeye was how much he loved. He loved his Pappy, he loved Sweetpea, he adored Olive Oyl. He only fought when provoked and he fought inspite of incredible odds. (the ROC!)

dat zit.

In Washington DC Popeye cartoons were hosted by "Captain Tugg".

Here's a child's recollection:

"The 2nd visit was on the Wisconsin Avenue location on the Capn Tugg Show. I recall being hugely disappointed that none of it was real and how small it all was! LOL Fantail the parrot (when not in use) hung upside-down to the right of the Channel Queen's wheel; (out of camera range, of course).

It was also a disappointment that Lee Reynolds (Captain Tugg) had a fake beard and a putty nose - AND - during the cartoons, he'd run-up some stairs to the control room & we all saw him sneaking a puff on a cigarette!! : ( "

I watched a ton of these cartoons...anybody know what a.a.p. stood for in the beginning?

I'm thinking more along the lines of Associated Artists and Producers...but could be wrong. They weren't a famous cartoon studio.
