Show history

After the success of the original Popeye theatrical shorts produced from 1933 to 1957, King Features commissioned a new series of cartoons for television syndication starring Popeye, Olive Oyl and Bluto (renamed "Brutus" for this series). Though the series was produced using the limited animation technique (whose production values contrasted sharply to their Popeye theatrical counterparts), the series was a huge ratings success.

Popeye the Sailor aired in syndication in the US well into the 1990s. The episodes featured many characters from the original Thimble Theatre comic strip not seen in the theatrical series, including the Sea Hag, Toar, Rough House and King Blozo. Notably, Popeye the Sailor marked the final time Mae Questel would voice Olive Oyl.
