!!The comics
* After 70 years of being a father figure, Popeye officially adopted Swee'pea in a Sunday strip from November 21, 2004 in celebration of National Adoption Month. This was also marked by a special event held in New York City.
* In the Plunder Island story arc, Popeye is fighting Alice the Goon when a little goon runs up and shouts "[[MonsterIsAMommy Mama!]]" Popeye is blown away to learn that Alice has a kid. He immediately stops the fight and promises to free Alice from the Sea Witch, so the two can go back to their home.

!![[{{Film/Popeye}} The movie]]
* Early in the film we see Popeye keeps a picture frame with the words '''Me Poppa''' in place of a picture. The CMOH comes later when we see Pappy has an identical picture frame with the words '''Me Son'''.
* Pick a Popeye/Swee'pea moment. ''Any'' Popeye/Swee'pea moment.
* During the Sail With Me/Stay With Me song, Olive and Popeye sing about the futures they hope Swee'pea will have. There's a part where Olive is singing about how Popeye might be the guy she's been dreaming of, and that she hopes that he'll settle down with her.
** There's also "He Needs Me", where Olive sings about how Popeye is the first person who's ever needed her.
