Elmo Popeye

Elmo as Popeye.

Popeye is a comic strip and cartoon character, a salty sailor known for his abnormally large arms, prodigious strength, and inexplicable adoration of the skinny, often shrewish Olive Oyl. Created by Elzie Segar, Popeye debuted in Segar's strip Thimble Theater as a supporting character in 1929, but soon took over the strip.

In 1932, Popeye made the transition to animation in a long-running series of Paramount cartoons, initially produced by Max Fleischer, which introduced spinach as the source of the sailor's strength and emphasized the romantic rivalry between the sailor and the burly bearded Bluto. Popeye went on to star on radio, in Robert Altman's 1980 film, and in several TV series and specials.

References

  • Appearing in a video interview for the British magazine OK!, Pepe is asked what one of his favorite franchises is: "Popeye. We love Popeye. Is that a franchise?"

Muppet Mentions

  • Though the Popeye dailies have been in reruns for years, the strip still features new Sundays, drawn by Hy Eisman. One strip referenced a classic Ernie and Bert skit, with Wimpy and Popeye.
