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 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''.

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 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 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.

* AnAesop: The Aesop of the theatrical short "Be Kind To Animals" is...well, ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin. This lesson is repeated in the later short "Bulldozing The Bull".

* EyeScream: The comics explain this is what happened to Popeye's right eye. He allowed himself to get beat up over a matter he felt accountable for, and lost his right eye in the process. This may have transitioned into the Fleischer cartoons, but was eventually abandoned by the FamousStudios shorts.

* EyeScream: The comics explain this is what happened to Popeye's right eye. He allowed himself to get beat up over a matter he felt accountable for, and lost his right eye in the process. However, in some cartoons, it shows his left eye being the one closed. This may have transitioned into the Fleischer cartoons, but was eventually abandoned by the FamousStudios shorts.

Added DiffLines:

** 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.

Added DiffLines:

* 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.
