Popeye 1st Episode

Being a son of a handy man, so his early worked was helping his father by house painting and paper hanging. With his musical skills, he provided musical accompaniment to films and vaudeville acts in the local theater. At the age of 18 he decided to become a cartoonist.

Managing editor William Curley thought Segar could succeed in New York, so he sent him to King Features Syndicate, where Segar worked for many years. He began by drawing Thimble Theatre for the New York Journal. The strip made its debut on December 19, 1919, featuring the characters Olive Oyl, Castor Oyl and Horace Hamgravy, whose name was quickly shortened in the strip to simply "Ham Gravy". They were the strip's leads for about a decade. In January 1929, when Castor Oyl needed a mariner to navigate his ship to Dice Island, Castor picked up an old salt down by the docks named Popeye. Popeye's first words in the strip, when asked if he was a sailor, were: " 'Ja think I'm a cowboy?". The Popeye character stole the show and became the permanent featured character. Some of the other notable characters Segar created include J. Wellington Wimpy and Eugene the Jeep. source wikipedia

Popeye was one of my favorite cartoons characters during my chidhood days. I miss his toot-toot sound, trembling muscles as he ate a can of spinach. Though he is never as famous as those early 90's. The moral value of this cartoon shows...

Favorite ko yan panoorin noong bata pa ako, ng nagkaanak na ako, I still enjoy watching Popeye with my kids.

Salamat sa creator nya. :)

George- masarap talagang balikan ang mga childhood cartoon heroes natin. kaya nakakaaliw din silang panoorin minsan.

Misalyn- kids also needs parental guidance even sa cartoons. sometimes akala nila ay ok lang ang pumkpok ng hammer or magpasabog ng bomb, just like in cartoons showed. It s good you stay with them sometimes sa panonood.
