* {{Leitmotif}}: Whenever Popeye grabs his spinach can, a fanfare version of "I'm Popeye the Sailor Man" is heard. Usually, the fights are accompanied by patriotic music, usually either "Stars and Stripes Forever", "Yankee Doodle", or "O Columbia the Gem of the Ocean".

*** Don't forget, "I want you to come up to the house for a duck dinner. You bring the ducks." This is made fun of by Popeye in the Plunder Island storyline in the comics when Wimpy tries to cut Popeye's head off (long story) and complains when he ducks. Popeye replies, "Yeah, I'll furnish the ducks".

Added DiffLines:

* TheDayTheMusicLied: In "Cookin' with Gags", after getting fed up with Bluto's pranks, Popeye takes out his can of spinach and starts squeezing it to the usual ThemeMusicPowerUp... which shifts into a {{sting}} when it turns out to be variant of a snake nut can.

* You're a Sap, Mr. Jap: The first of the Creator/FamousStudios Popeye cartoons. It has gained notoriety for its racist stereotyping of japanese soldiers. Given the state of war that existed between the United States and Japan (and by extension the Axis Powers) at the time, [[WartimeCartoon cartoons]] such as these would be common for the next three years.

He starred in an impressive 232 [[note]] Discounting all the remake and clip show shorts, the number is "merely" 200[[/note]] theatrical cartoons during UsefulNotes/TheGoldenAgeOfAnimation, lasting from [[LongRunner 1933 to 1957]], his most noteworthy short being the first of the three two-reeler, 20 minute long, full-color Technicolor specials: specifically, "WesternAnimation/PopeyeTheSailorMeetsSindbadTheSailor". This iconic short, being a precursor even to Creator/{{Disney}}'s ''[[Disney/SnowWhiteAndTheSevenDwarfs Snow White]]'', was extremely popular and was even billed along with the feature of the theater, above the main feature of the theater that played it, or ''even billed as the main feature of the theater itself.'' While it failed to win an [[UsefulNotes/AcademyAward Oscar]] (losing to the now obscure Creator/WaltDisney SillySymphonies short "The Country Cousin"), it is still considered to this day to be one of The50GreatestCartoons ever made, influencing even filmmakers like Creator/RayHarryhausen, especially on his film ''Film/The7thVoyageOfSinbad''.
