  • Summary: Popeye originally started as a 1929 comic strip character in E.C. Segar's "Thimble Theatre." Soon he appeared as an animated character on screen in 1933 and has ever since starred in hundreds of animated cartoons as well as a live-action movie.

Soon he appeared as an animated character on screen in 1933 and has ever since starred in hundreds of animated cartoons as well as a live-action movie. In the 1970s, Hanna-Barbera brought Popeye and friends to the Saturday morning realm with better animation than the 1960s Popeye cartoons for TV. When the show became the "Popeye and Olive Show" in 1980, such segments included a spoof on the film "Private Benjamin" with Olive Oyl in the role of Goldie Hawn. "Private Olive" also featured the ghastly creature named Alice the Goon from the comics as well as Eugene the magical Jeep from Darkest Africa. At the end of each cartoon there was a segment featuring Popeye and his nephews. This had Popeye teaching them a lesson. For example, Popeye was smoking his pipe, so the kids asked about it and he explained that he doesn't actually SMOKE it, and that it was his TOOTING pipe. There was no violence on the show, which paralleled later scenes in the Segar comic.The middle feature of the 1978-81 series was Dinky Dog, the misadventures of a humongous sheepdog and his mistresses, Monica and Sandy.
