* SeasonalRot: By the mid-1940s, the FamousStudios Popeye shorts became increasingly formulaic and stale, and the timing and animation took a hit in quality. By the 50's, the series went through such a clear budget crunch that they were forced to make an excessive amount of clip show episodes or remakes of older shorts. Roughly 17% of all Popeye theatrical cartoons from both Fleischer and Famous Studios were either remakes, semi-remakes or clip shows, that's roughly 38 cartoons in all! However roughly only 3% (4 total) of the Fleischer cartoons qualify, whereas a whopping 28% (roughly 34) qualify for Famous Studios.

* CriticalResearchFailure: Many critics at the time lambasted this movie for being too ''cartoonish''. FacePalm.

* MemeticBadass: Popeye, of course! There's [[http://knowyourmeme.com/photos/878825 an image making the rounds on the Internet]] that describes many of the amazing feats of strength ''and'' intellect Popeye has achieved during his heyday, and several of them ''rival'' the feats of Greek Gods and even [[VideoGame/AsurasWrath Asura]]. Some of the listed feats include:

Added DiffLines:

* {{Narm}}: The live action segments in the 1935 short "The Adventures of Popeye", where a little boy wearing what looks like a blouse is picked on by a bully who calls him a "sissy', are unintentionally hilarious enough to make up for the fact that it's a ClipShow episode. Particularly hilarious is the badly-dubbed voice of the child bully, who sounds more like an adult. It becomes obvious that the Fleischers were much better at directing animation than live action.

** There's also "Popeye meets William Tell", which for [[SomethingCompletelyDifferent no discernable reason]] decides to throw our hero into [[TheMiddleAges medieval europe]] and have him encounter William Tell. And it only gets stranger from there.

** [[https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=2BrPTQ4IZIg "I'm Popeye the sailor man! *TOOT!*.]] Nearly a century young, it remains to be one of the most iconic songs ever composed. Everybody on earth, and we do mean everybody (that includes you), at least knows the first verse of the song.

* GrowingTheBeard: The theatrical cartoon series got off to a strong start, but the series really crystallized when Jack Mercer took over the role of Popeye from "King of the Mardi Gras" and onward.

* TheScrappy: Popeye's four nephews, who are generally considered to be annoying and shrill, and don't have any real personality going for them other than being Popeye's bratty wards. Fortunately, their appearances are mostly exclusive to the Famous shorts (and still rather sporadic in that case) and a handful of the later Fleischer Popeyes.

* UglyCute: Popeye in the later cartoons. His earthy appearance and personality never changed too drastically, but he became much more round looking and genial as time went on.

* ValuesDissonance: Granted, Poopdeck Pappy's [[HeManWomanHater grouchy misogynism towards Olive Oyl]] in the original Segar comics was never portrayed in a positive light, but this aspect of his personality would never fly in a contemporary comic.

** The above-mentioned "You're A Sap, Mr. Jap". "Jap" itself is a horrible ethnic slur. Of course, ALL [[WartimeCartoon Wartime Cartoons]] back then had the Japanese portrayed that way.

* UncannyValley: Needless to say, Popeye's [[WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy tumor arms]] do '''''not''''' transition well into live action.
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: Sony Films had plans for a 2016 animated reboot to the [[AndTheFandomRejoiced joy of many fans]] but was ultimately cancelled in favor The Emoji Movie for unknown reasons.
