** Watsonian interpretation: AllGirlsWantBadBoys, or she does it to [[SecretTestOfCharacter test Popeye's devotion to her]]. The actual reason is that, like how Miyamoto said to compare Mario to Popeye, the Popeye crew is like a theatre troupe; they play their roles within different, [[NegativeContinuity unconnected]] stories, so one day Popeye and Bluto are next door neighbors, the next they are rival pirate captains. They all perform for us to love them.

* Also, why the hell can't Bluto just go buy his own can of spinach?

** Bluto is seen to despise spinach, so much so that he won't even eat it if it means beating Popeye. He may even consider eating it to even the odds the same as admitting defeat.

* Also, why the hell can't Bluto just go buy his own can of spinach? Seriously, does Popeye have a part-time job farming spinach or something?

* Many times Bluto kidnap, assault, and possibly try to rape Olive, and Popeye always arrive to save the day. Why does she become interested in Bluto in later episodes?

* Why does Bluto keep on fighting Popeye? Shouldn't he have gotten the memo the third or so time he popped a can of spinach?

** The opponent would just get stronger, and sort of negate the point of Popeye eating the spinach. Popeye's fed Bluto spinach during the occasional EnemyMine episode and it worked the same for him.

Added DiffLines:

** The shorts, like most other theatrical cartoons, have no real canon and just have a set cast of characters that can be used to fill different roles, which is why Olive Oyle is so inconsistent in her attraction to Popeye and/or Bluto, similar to Minnie in the old Mickie Mouse shorts. Canonically speaking, she has no attraction to Bluto, seeing him as a JerkAss bully (which he is), and loves Popeye due to his bravery and devotion.

*** Pretty much. Popeye usually doesn't need the Spinach, he is superhumanly strong as he is.
