"Popeye the Sailor is a fictional muscular American cartoon character"

There's allegedly a daily Popeye cartoon on Comics Kingdom drawn by the creator of terrible webcomic Something Positive, but it's paywalled.

Remember when they did the British remake and called it Purple Aki?

at my school he had no Calor Gas, so his heating and cooking were supplied in an uncommon rectal/donkey based system, from what I remember

Last I heard he'd opened a chain of chicken shops in America.

Popeyes is a takeaway in Sheffield city centre. A regular just before going home from the pub haunt of mine in my late teens and 20s. Merdocs' burgers were better though.

They're papal nephews. (See also: Donald Duck.)

'His' son is probably Bluto's.

In our primary school of the early '90s, Popeye "likes to go swimmin' to kiss all the wimmin'."

More amazingly than kids making stuff up in a playground proto-rap battle, is how there was a Popeye song in an actual poetry anthology in our school library. Usborn's My Very First Poetry Book, I think. It went:

I'm Popeye the Sailor Man,
I live in a garbage can
I eat all the lizards and spit out their gizzards,
I'm Popeye the Sailor Man. (*toot-toot!*)

I might have added my own (*toot-toot!*) there.

It's obviously not as good as the rude ones from the playground but it's weird to think that this was IN PRINT. Reputable, approved, actual print.

If memory serves, the 'poem' was accompanied by a fairly monstrous unlicensed picture of Popeye himself with the lizards and the garbage can and everything. It wasn't quite the stuff of Tijuana Bibles but it was... a bit odd. Someone get googling/scanning plz.

At my school, he was an eskimo for some reason and was living in a ball of snow (not an igloo, just a big ball of snow) and had also taken to sticking his penis out of his trousers whenever it was chilly (not to see if it was chilly, just whenever it was cold enough to expose himself, the sick bastard).

What about that burger-eating cunt? What was his name, The Gimp or something.



edit: it was Wimpy, like the restaurant. Is that where they got their name?

edit 2: Yes. I suppose I could just look these things up instead of wasting computer ink.

So there's Wimpy the restaurant, Popeyes the restaurant, Olive Garden, any restaurants named after Bluto?

Russell Hunter played a snivelling grass called Popeye in The Sweeney episode "I Want The Man". Roy Kinnear was also in it. You can't say fairer than that.

I used to think Bluto was called 'Pluto' for many years.
I'm sure I wasn't the only one.
As you can imagine, I was quite confused to learn he had been reclassified as a dwarf planet.

Alternative sources had Bluto down as “Brutus”.

As a long-serving sailor he’ll have been involved in more than his fair share of “golden rivet” initiation pranks against new recruits. “Go on, son. Stick your head out the porthole and see if you can find it.” Disgusting.

Not to mention sleeping with his granny and tickling her fanny.

That's the version I knew, except in ours he lived in an "old tin can" not a caravan. and instead of tickled it was "twiddled".

You too?
Yes, it was changed to Brutus for a short while in the 1960s due to a copyright mix-up, then changed back again.
It really was a very eventful decade.

Popeye was shit. In the days of three TV channels it was in the "I'll watch it if there's nothing else on" bracket along with Blue Peter and Mark Curry's Mullet Mayhem Marauders.

In real life, Popeye would be a roidal simpleton with spinach between his teeth, breath like a bus driver's ballbag and an overall smell of fox piss and child sperm, and Olive Oyl made Shelley Duvall look like Chuck Norris
