** The Genndy Tartakovsky animation test for the upcoming cgi movie has gotten positive reception from fans, but Popeye not having his pipe and tattoos has really caused a stir among fans.
** ''The All New Popeye Hour'' is perhaps the most hated adaption of the whole series, due to heavy {{Bowdlerization}} (see the main page for details), making Olive into a [[TheDitz complete ditz]] and lacking the wit of the classic theatrical shorts.
* CrazyAwesome: Popeye given the sheer level of insanity some of his feats.

* FunnyAneurysmMoment: In one cartoon Bluto, in a rare moment of [[GenreSavvy genre savvy-ness]], destroys the world's spinach supply with an powerful herbicide made from DDT. What it's called in the cartoon, Drop Dead Twice, proved to be appropriate name for the real DDT, at least with regards to birds.

* FamilyUnfriendlyAesop: In an early Segar Sunday strip, Popeye delivers a NoHoldsBarredBeatdown to a nasty hot dog vendor [[KickTheDog who refused to give a dirt poor kid a hot dog on credit]] ([[BullyingADragon and insulted Popeye to his face]]), [[KickTheSonOfABitch tears down his shack in seconds]], and [[PetTheDog gives the kid a bunch of free hotdogs.]] The lesson? It's okay to ruin a guy's business and steal from him because he was being a jerk.
-->'''Popeye:''' "Can't ya give the boy a sandrich on credick! He's hungry on account of his dad bein' outta work."
-->'''Vendor:''' "[[ShutUpKirk I will not!]] This is no charity institution. [[GetOut Now beat it]], ya funny lookin gink, before I push your face."
-->'''Popeye:''' [[ITakeOffenseToThatLastOne "You can't insulk me!]] [[TalkToTheFist I'll take ya apart and yer shack too!"]] (slugs vendor and effortlessly demolishes the shack with his bare hands in seconds, leaving the vendor [=KOed=] under its wreckage.)
-->'''Popeye''': "I feels exter happy now on account of I done a good deed." (Popeye watches kid walk off with free hotdogs)

** To give an idea of just how helter skelter the Al Brodax cartoons are, here's a rundown; the Paramount episodes are considered decent (considering they were done by the same staff who animated the Popeye cartoons for decades) despite the shoestring budgets, but the Jack Kinney episodes (such as the aforementioned "Popeye and the Giant") tend to be considered the absolute worst of the series. The Larry Harmon episodes are so cheap that they often have almost ''no'' animation at all. The two episodes with Ozzie Evans animating are considered the sloppiest--In one or another of the Popeyes he animated, you saw "speed lines" on stationary characters, scenes reversed left-to-right to change the direction, but forgetting it also reversed the lettering on the background, and Brutus's voice coming out of Popeye's mouth and vice versa! The Gene Deitch episodes are all over the place--for example, in "Sea No Evil", there's a blooper where Popeye is swimming to make a boat go faster, and the background isn't even moving!

* 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.

* BreakoutVillain: Bluto was a minor oneshot villain in the original Segar comics, but the Fleischer cartoons turned him into the series leading antagonist, and made him as iconic as Popeye and Olive Oyl.

** 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.
