POPEYE T Shirts
The History of Popeye
Popeye the Sailor is known for his squinty eye, unique way of speaking, disproportionately muscular forearms with two anchor tattoos, and an ever-present corncob pipe. He battles his arch enemy Bluto on land and sea for the affections of the skinny but alluring Olive Oyl. Popeye made his debut as a minor character in the comic strip Thimble Theatre in 1929 and soon became the star of the strip which was eventually renamed Popeye. The first animated series starring Popeye was launched in 1933. Over the decades this beloved character has been featured in cartoons, comic books, radio programs, video games, and a 1980 feature film starring Robin Williams. Popeye declares in his autobiographical theme song: “I’m strong to the finish ‘cause I eats me spinach, I'm Popeye the sailor-man!"
Like the one-eyed nautical brawler himself, our Popeye T Shirts are strong to the finish and a perfect fit for men, women, and children!
