* "What- No Spinach?" is one for Wimpy, as it's one of the very few times he resembles his comic-counterpart. A waiter at Bluto's Restaurant, Wimpy is unable to mooch meals while under Bluto's watchful eyes. When Popeye comes in for a meal, Wimpy secretly applies some Red Pepper Sauce to create a FireBreathingDinner, causing Popeye to try to walk out. Seeing a customer leave without paying prompts Bluto to shake the sailor down for the bill, starting a fight. The ensuing brawl allows Wimpy to get to Bluto's food safe unhindered, and he leaves the remains of the diner with a BalloonBelly, wreathed in edibles, and munching on the burger Bluto confiscated from him earlier.

** In that same short, the thieves try to feed Popeye to a shark, but Popeye takes it out with two hits that seals its mouth closed with its own fangs. What really puts this above his usual badassery is that HE HADN'T EATEN HIS SPINACH YET!

** After taking down the 40 thieves, Hassan charges at him with a spear. Popeye knocks the thieving bastard into a huge trunk which locks him inside. Then, Popeye forces Hassan and his men to drag their ill-gotten riches back to civilization by foot, where Popeye and friends are met with a cheering crowd of the thieves victims.
--> '''Popeye''': I may be a shorty, but I licked the 40, I'm Popeye the Sailor Man! *toot toot!*


Added DiffLines:

*** Popeye's fight with Sinbad, even before the spinach, like when he hides in a tree and gives Sinbad one hell of a black eye. Of course, eventually he's outmatched and forced to break out the spinach, at which point Sinbad gets a feel of what it's like getting knocked around by a superior foe.
*** Popeye unknowingly interrupting Sinbad's VillainSong at the start.
--> '''Sinbad''': ''Who's the most remarkable, extraordinary sailor-''
--> '''Popeye''': *offscreen* '''I'm Popeye The Sailor Man!''
--> '''Sinbad/Random Dragon''': O_O

* In the pilot short, Popeye halts an oncoming train by ''punching it''. It's a moment so iconic that the film series would go on to repeatedly homage it - shot for shot - again and again in later shorts.

* Popeye shoving the much-hated tax collector into the ocean is both this and a CrowningMomentOfFunny. The ''entire town'' comes out to cheer Popeye on for doing it!

* During the Rough House Brawl, Mort throws a punch at Popeye. Popeye catches it in flight, and then proceeds to beat the man's face with ''his own knuckles''. Holy crap.

* In one sunday, Roughhouse comes up with a great way to get rid of Wimpy, he ties a basket to a dog, puts a hamburger in the basket, and sends the dog running out of town, with Wimpy in hot pursuit. Just as Roughhouse is gloating at his clever, Wimpy walks in, basket under his arm, and eating the hamburger with his free hand. "Gentlemen, I am loathe to exercise, but when there is a hamburger at stake, I am strong of heart and fleet of foot!"
