Added DiffLines:

* SplitHair: Played straight and inverted in a short where Popeye and Bluto were competing store salesmen. Bluto shows that his knives are quality with this trope, then Popeye shows how crappy they are by having the hair ''split the knife.''

* ConfrontingYourImposter: The premise of "Hello, How Am I?". Popeye goes over to Olive's house for a hamburger dinner, only to seemingly meet ''another'' Popeye on his way to do the same exact thing. The viewers are quickly aware that the fake Popeye is actually, no, not Bluto, but ''Wimpy'' [[labelnote:Wait, what?!]] Wimpy had overheard Olive stating that she was making hamburgers and decided to get in on it himself by impersonating the sailor, making this short one of the very few featuring Wimpy in an antagonistic role [[/labelnote]] but Popeye is not, leading to him getting very confused until he decides he's had enough and teaches Wimpy a lesson. (Making this short one of the few (if not the only) times where Wimpy was on the receiving end of one of Popeye's beat-downs.)

* TheKiddieRide: One with Popeye on a boat by Jolly Roger. The notorious thing about the design is that the coin slot is on Popeye's crotch.

* DeadpanSnarker: In the 1930s shorts, this was Popeye to a tee. It mostly came about due to his voice actor having to ad-lib many quips ''after'' the animation was done.

Added DiffLines:

* GreekChorus: Mercer's ad libs sometimes had Popeye LeaningOnTheFourthWall about the entire cartoon.

* UrExample: Franchise/{{Superman}} may have been the TropeCodifier for Superheroes, but Popeye the Sailor's got some astonishing heroics under his own belt.

* Wotta Nitemare: This short is a nightmarish throwback to the early days of FleischerStudios, especially odd considering that they were pushing to imitate Disney during this time period.

Added DiffLines:

* GettingTheBabyToSleep: One cartoon had Popeye and Bluto trying to get a crying Swee'pea to laugh. Naturally, it leads to an EscalatingWar, and Popeye reaches for his spinach... only he opens a can of onions instead, causing him and Bluto to cry. Swee'pea sees them crying and laughs.

* Popeye the Sailor: Billed as a BettyBoop cartoon, but is really a PoorlyDisguisedPilot for the Popeye cartoons. Betty herself recieves barely a minute of screentime, with almost all of her animation recycled from "Betty Boop's Bamboo Isle". The series formula is established right out of the starting gate with this cartoon, with Bluto kidnapping Olive and Popeye having to chase him down and beat him into submission before Olive gets run over by a train.
