** Even within the comic itself, Popeye looked very different in his first appearance. His body was more realistically proportioned, his forearms were not as prominent, his chin was smaller, and his nose was bigger. He arguably looked even uglier than he eventually became.

* MayTheFarceBeWithYou: One episode of the Creator/HannaBarbera series, [[Film/CloseEncountersOfTheThirdKind "Close Encounters of the Third Spinach"]], is a typical Star Wars parody. It featured Olive as Princess Olive-Pit, Poopdeck Pappy as Alta-Poppa and Bluto as Darth Bluto. Popeye not only rescues the Princess but discovers his long lost Pappy.

* HoistByHisOwnPetard: In "How Green Is My Spinach", after realizing he's in a cartoon and demonstrating some GenreSavvy in destroying the worlds Spinach crops in order to rid himself of Popeye once and for all, Bluto is done in when he forgets that there is NoFourthWall, and an ''audience member'' tosses Popeye a can of Spinach.



* NearVillainVictory: Bluto almost successfully marries Olive Oyl in "Nearlyweds" after humiliating Popeye. But once Bluto and Olive meet the Justice of the Peace, he makes Bluto promise to do a ludicrous amount of housework and deeds for Olive as part of their marriage. Bluto immediately gets cold feet and bails on the marriage on the spot, with Olive in chase. Of course, the Justice of the Peace turns out to be Popeye in disguise.

** In "How Green Is My Spinach" Bluto has successfully destroyed the worlds spinach supply and finally has Popeye cornered with nothing to stop him. If it weren't for the [[NoFourthWall lack of a fourth wall]], he would've succeeded in ridding himself of Popeye for good.

[[Film/{{Popeye}} The Movie]], released in 1980 and starring a young Creator/RobinWilliams in one of his first film roles, is a CultClassic. Sony Pictures made a deal to develop an AllCGICartoon ''Popeye'' feature film, originally to be directed by animation legend Creator/GenndyTartakovsky. But in March of 2015, Genndy left the project, leaving the film's fate unknown (be it put in DevelopmentHell or be given to a different director from Sony to finish it). [[http://clxcool.tumblr.com/post/130378268397/reblog-if-you-want-genndy-tartakovsky-back-on However, you can reblog this post if you want Genndy Tartakovsky's vision of Popeye to happen.]]

* SlidingScaleOfAdaptationModification: The Fleischer cartoons are a Type 3 (PragmaticAdaptation); the characters personalities are kept intact from the comics, but none of the story material from Segar's newspaper comics was used, as many of them were story arcs that ran for months at a time, and it would have been unfeasable to properly adapt them into the theatrical cartoon format of the time period. The Famous Studios cartoons vary between a Type 2 (Recognizable Adaptation) and Type 1 (InNameOnly).

* OutdatedOutfit: Popeye gets a pass when wearing his Navy whites (which haven't changed much in decades) but usually he's wearing a much more dated nautical outfit that was old-fashioned even in the 1930's.

* AdultFear: "Lost and Foundry" had Swee'Pea wandering off into a dangerous factory. Although [[spoiler: he ends up having to rescue Popeye and Olive Oyl instead of the other way around.]]

** "Never Sock A Baby" touches upon the fear of your kids hating you if you punish them too harshly, when Popeye gives Swee' Pea a spanking for some naughty thing the little guy did off-screen, followed by Popeye fantasizing about a heartbroken Swee' Pea running away from home. During this DreamSequence, Swee' Pea nearly falls off a collapsing rope bridge into an enormous canyon and eventually goes over an InevitableWaterfall along with Popeye.

* LethalChef: Popeye's Granny, introduced during Sagendorf's run of the comic strip, is a horrible cook. Her biscuits have been used to pave driveways, and she's somehow managed to [[EpicFail burn water.]] Popeye, Poopdeck Pappy and Swee'pea ended up allowing her to cook only one meal a year, during which time, they'll sneak off to Roughhouse for a hamburger.
