Popeye the Sailor Man-one of the eight wonders of the [[NewspaperComic Newspaper Comics]] and WesternAnimation world, and one of the most popular cartoon stars of TheGoldenAgeOfAnimation. Initially appearing as a oneshot character in the middle of an arc Thimble Theater, the comic E.C. Segar was making at the time, was going through, Popeye quickly gained the status of EnsembleDarkhorse among the comics readers, and stayed in the comic long after his debut adventure was over, until he finally overtook the whole comic, with it being renamed Popeye and tossing out Ham Gravy as the main character and Olive Oyl's original love interest.

Part of what made Popeye such an instant hit with audiences was that, despite his odd appearance and gruff conduct, he was one of the few moral forces in the world of Thimble Theatre -- Popeye also got along great with children, even going as far as to tearing apart a guys hot dog vendor once ''just because he wouldn't [[DisproportionateRetribution give a broke kid a hot dog on credit]]'' ([[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking that]], [[BullyingADragon and insulting Popeye to his face]]). In other words, he was a very likable, sympathetic character despite having none of the obvious qualities of one at first sight. He was the original AntiHero. He is also a very noble (but ignorant) being and is very loyal to his girl Olive Oyl and will give anyone the benefit of the doubt, even his rival Bluto. Speaking of original, Popeye was the original superhero-over a decade before {{Superman}} graced the comic pages, Popeye was blessed with inhuman strength and astounding durability and endurance, taking at least 15 bullets in his first adventure before finally being brought down.
