Tear Jerker: Popeye

The cartoons

  • Never Sock A Baby
  • Popeye's "Dear John" Letter from I Never Changes My Altitude.
  • Olive listening over the radio as Popeye gets the tar knocked out of him in Let's You And Him Fight.
  • A small one but Olive thinking Popeye's been torn apart by the giant bird (either that, or fried by the lava from the volcano) in Popeye the Sailor Meets Sindbad the Sailor, all the while Bluto / Sindbad laughs at the whole.
    Olive: POPEYE! OH, POPEYE, MY POPEYE! COME BACK TO ME!!' (cries, until Popeye comes back with the bird cooked like a chicken / turkey)''note 

The movie

  • "Swee'Pea's Lullaby".
    • And before that, his lamenting about taking Swee'Pea away from Olive Oyl.
  • Pappy flat-out refusing to acknowledge Popeye as his son (at first) is rather sad, especially since Popeye himself is so joyous to find his father.
