* MegatonPunch: Usually how he ends his spinach-boosted beatdown combos. Maybe the [[VideoGame/{{F-Zero}} Falcon]] [[MemeticMutation PAWNCH]] from VideoGame/SuperSmashBros was based on this ultimate finisher?

* ZanyScheme: Before Popeye was introduced, the strip mostly revolved around Castor's get rich quick schemes. In fact, Popeye was introduced because Castor needed a sailor to sail a ship out to a casino.

Originally a minor character in ''[[http://home.earthlink.net/~thimbletheatre/ Thimble Theater,]]'' a newspaper comic strip drawn by Elzie Segar for Creator/KingFeaturesSyndicate, Popeye the Sailor [[BreakoutCharacter quickly took over the series]], edging out [[TheSlacker Ham Gravy]] as the principal suitor of Olive Oyl. He made his animation debut in a 1933 BettyBoop short produced by Creator/FleischerStudios, and continued appearing in cartoons throughout the 1940s and 1950s, when Creator/FamousStudios produced the series, and even continued on into several made-for-tv cartoons. Despite his sailor moniker, Popeye [[ThePiratesWhoDontDoAnything rarely ventured out to sea]], instead spending his days romancing Olive Oyl and competed with Bluto for her affections.

* 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 to prevent Olive from being run over by a train.

** One episode ("Popeye's High School Daze") seems to find a way around this: Popeye uses his twister punch on a motorcycle-riding Bluto (who's barreling at high speed toward Popeye). A [[BigBallOfViolence fight cloud]] breaks out just as we see the punch connect; when the cloud clears, Bluto's sobbing like a little kid, as his motorcycle's been reduced to a tricycle.

* SpecialEffectFailure: In the recoloured version of ''Popeye In Goonland'', the scene with the [[BreakingTheFourthWall film break]] completely removes all but the film being repaired, creating an image that looks like the film is magically knitting together. Unfortunately, the original black-and-white version has been lost.
