There have been a number of Popeye comic books, from Dell, King Comics, Gold Key Comics, Charlton Comics and others. For other meanings, see Popeye (disambiguation). Popeye or Popeye the Sailor is a comic book series based upon Popeye and the rest of the Thimble Theatre. This format continued in the early issues of the Four Color comic book series by Dell Publishing before evolving into new stories and art by Bud.
Popeye issue 1. Cover art by Bud Sagendorf. At first simply titled Popeye , the publication mostly dealt with self-contained tales unlike the original, serialized comic strip , usually featuring a longer lead story starring Popeye and a few shorter backups headlined by either Popeye or other characters. Sagendorf even introduced new backup series such as Axle and Cam or Sherm! Short text stories would also be included, as well as the later Popeye's Physical Fitness Program , with the format changing through the years.
The comic eventually lengthened its title to Popeye the Sailor with issue 66 in , as Gold Key Comics took the title over from Dell Publishing. Sagendorf eventually retired from the series, leaving his duties to other artists, such as George Wildman. The show lasted for one season. Popeye as he appeared in Drawn Together In , Lions Gate Entertainment produced a computer-animated television special, Popeye's Voyage: The Quest for Pappy , which was made to coincide with the 75th anniversary of Popeye.
Billy West performed the voice of Popeye, describing the production as "the hardest job I ever did, ever" and the voice of Popeye as "like a buzzsaw on your throat".
Popeye has made brief parody appearances in modern animated productions, including: A typical Popeye style rescue was spoofed in The Simpsons episode " Jaws Wired Shut ".
In The Critic , Jay Sherman's father Franklin flashes back to saving his wife, Popeye-style, but with alcohol instead of spinach. Popeye appeared in the South Park " Imaginationland " three-parter as one of the members of the Council of Nine.
Popeye's appearance in one scene evoked that of the character Karl in the movie Sling Blade , as Popeye sharpened a blade, much as Karl sharpened a lawnmower blade near the end of Sling Blade. Playground song parodies of the theme have become part of children's street culture around the world,   usually interpolating " frying pan " or " garbage can " into the lyrics as Popeye's dwelling place   and ascribing to the character various unsavory actions or habits     that transform the character into an "Anti-Popeye", and changing his exemplary spinach-based diet into an inedible morass of worms , onions , flies , tortillas and snot.
This program was broadcast Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday nights at pm. September 10, through March 28, on the NBC Red Network 87 episodes , initially sponsored by Wheatena , a whole-wheat breakfast cereal , which would routinely replace the spinach references.
Music was provided by Victor Irwin's Cartoonland Band. Once again, reference to spinach was conspicuously absent.
Of the three series, only 20 of the episodes are known to be preserved. Wimpy J. Wellington Wimpy, if you want to be formal about it. And although everyone calls him Wimpy, he's anything but when it comes to mooching especially from his best friend, Popeye.
He's lazy, cowardly and selfish. In fact he's almost everything Popeye isn't. His catch phrase, "I'll gladly pay you Tuesday for a hamburger today," has made him one of the many popular supporting characters to come out of this strip. Olive Oyl Perhaps the comics' most famous love affair.
Popeye has proven his devotion to his lanky love - ever the damsel in distress - by battling the fiercest foes for more than seven decades!
But somehow it never seems to be enough. Now that's dedication!
Although Olive is equally smitten with her heroic sailor, she's still easily impressed by anyone who has more "edumacation and ettiket" than Popeye. Olive is the only remaining original "Thimble Theatre" character. Swee'Pea After being left on Popeye's doorstep, Swee'Pea went on to become the sailor's "adoptid infink.
But what else would you expect from a kid who's being raised by Popeye? He can talk and fight, but strangely enough, he can't walk yet. He began his career when he created a comic strip for his high school newspaper. After a brief stint in the military, Eisman worked as ghost artist for the popular Kerry Drake comic strip. He soon turned his pen to the comic-book industry, drawing for various publishers of such titles as Nancy, The Munsters, Tom and Jerry and Little Lulu.
Eisman's career as a cartoonist took off in , when he started to draw Little Iodine. He really brought the adventures of the bratty, pony-tailed Iodine to life. He left that strip in to chronicle the adventures of those two more-famous brats, The Katzenjammer Kids, the world's oldest continuing comic strip.
