TV Shows - Popeye

Famous Paramount continued producing the Popeye series until 1957, with Spooky Swabs being the last of the 125 Famous shorts in the series. Paramount then sold the Popeye film catalog to Associated Artists Productions (a.a.p.), which was bought out by United Artists in 1958 and later merged with Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, which was itself purchased by Turner Entertainment in 1986. Turner sold off the production end of MGM/UA in 1988, but retained the film catalog, giving it the rights to the theatrical Popeye library.

1 I was a HUGE Popeye fan as a kid. Although i did think if i ate all my spinach i'd get "big and strong" as Popeye. Lol. I ate them to get muscles. One good thing came of that though i still love spinach and it is good for you so hey. -- Submitted By: (Icemouth) on December 2, 2012, 8:50 am - (2 votes) - Login to Vote

3 Never boned, however I do agree that the '60s cartoons (which I love) should have kept the Bluto name. -- Submitted By: (TheTruth) on March 12, 2012, 2:40 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
4 I'm OK with spinach. It tastes acceptable. At least it's not disgusting like lima beans. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on April 28, 2011, 9:43 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
5 The thing is, I actually like spinach. Popeye did clear me of all delusions that just eating spinach or any vegetable alone would make me twice as big and it would be all muscle. That's what steroids and HGH are for. -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on April 26, 2011, 5:36 pm - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
6 That's ironic that the chicken restaurant which is named after him or the has the same name as him who's eat nothing but spinach. -- Submitted By: (SSM) on April 26, 2011, 3:05 pm - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
7 When I was little, seeing Popeye get big muscles after eating spinach made me want to eat spinach. However, when I saw no big muscles on myself, I went, "Forget spinach!" -- Submitted By: (Robert) on April 26, 2011, 10:40 am - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
8 The spinach thing was based on junk science of the time that has since been disproven. http://www.mentalfloss.com/blogs/archives/45246 -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on April 23, 2011, 8:51 pm - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
9 I call shenanigans. Eating spinach does *not* instantly make your forearm muscles bulge out and give you the power to beat up guys twice your size. Who do I call to sue for false advertising? LOL -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on April 23, 2011, 7:26 pm - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
10 That's a show I never liked. There was a very old version of it with bad plots, uninteresting characters and awful animation. Then I remember one with his son or nephew, with sailing and all, and that was so fogettable that I can't even remember what was the plot. Then he had three small clones living in the city and holy moley, that one crushed any interest I might had to see a Popeye cartoon. -- Submitted By: (Saunich) on April 21, 2011, 11:17 pm - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
11 When Popeye switched shirts. Popeye with the black shirt was a bad ass sailor who continuously kicked Bluto's butt for Olive Oil. Popeye with the white shirt was a watered down family-friendly version who was too happy and not edgy enough. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on January 6, 2011, 3:24 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
12 Friedrich, As best I can make out, there was some confusion as to whether the newer producers of the cartoon series owned the original character of Bluto outright so they made a more obese rendition and called him Brutus for a time but they're supposed to be the same character. Now, why they'd think they owned Popeye, Olive, Swea' pea and the Sea Hag but NOT Bluto makes me wonder if what kind of spinach they may have been smoking!

13 Yeah, what was up with the name change for Bluto/Brutus. My little brother resolved the problem in his own mind by simply referring to him as "Bruto." -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on January 4, 2011, 2:50 pm - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
14 When Popeye was apparently living in a 2 bedroom ranch in the 'burbs, it was time to hang it up -- Submitted By: (BrewMaster) on July 14, 2009, 8:42 pm - (3 votes) - Login to Vote
