to:

* In one Sunday strip, Wimpy crashes Popeye and Olive's picnic. Neither one is thrilled, but go along with it because they both realize he won't leave them alone. Popeye starts whispering sweet nothings to Olive, causing Wimpy to get jealous that he don't have someone like that. He then proceeds to start showering Olive with compliments of his own. Being better at words than Popeye, Olive is eating it up. Popeye tries to warn her that he doesn't really mean any of it, but she shushes him, allowing for Wimpy to continue. But then, Wimpy gets distracted when a cow walks up, and proceeds to focus his attention on it. Popeye and Olive then proceed to head home without a single word, but Olive is visibly seething. When they get home, Popeye can't hold it in any longer and starts laughing. Olive hits him over the head with a vase.

** When the lights come on, Popeye is now in a net made from the ropes Pappy had be wrapped in! "Ooh! I hates bein' your son!"

* "Goodnight, Pappy... I sez 'Goodnight, Pappy!" (click!)



to:

* The RunningGag in ''Fowl Play'' of Olive fainting in a very melodramatic fashion, with Popeye catching her at the very last second, even while in the middle of fighting Bluto.
** From the same cartoon, Bluto getting repeatedly punched against a wall by Popeye, while his outline remains in place.

Added DiffLines:

** Earlier, he gets in step right behind a Goon who is oblivious to his presence:
--> '''Popeye''': Don't look now, young fella, but I think you're bein' followed.


-->'''Popeye:''' Once upon a time, there was a big red hooding ride who sat on a muffin and said, "Oh Grandma, what big feet you have." So he chopped off his head with a giant beanstalk and they live happy ever after. Come on you gotta go to bed now

* One [[BlackComedy very infamous]] Sunday comic has Wimpy inheriting a cow from his deceased cousin. He keeps pestering Popeye, who's working at Roughhouse for the day, trying to trade in the cow for a few hamburgers. Popeye, however gets increasingly annoyed with him and tells him no. Wimpy finally relents and asks if he can borrow a few kitchen utensils and a stale loaf of bread, which Popeye allows. Popeye later feels guilty for getting short with Wimpy and decides to invite him back for a hamburger on the house, but when he finds him, he had lopped off the head and limbs of the cow he inherited, grounded up the rest, and the [[BalloonBelly now bloated]] Wimpy was grilling his own burgers!

* The Oyls are excited to learn that Swee'Pea knows which "horses" will win the races, as they need the money they can win by betting on them, but Popeye is disgusted by their willingness to exploit the baby, calling the money "Ill-gotten gains." Olive corrects him with, "It's good-gotten gains!"

* WesternAnimation/PopeyeTheSailor has a ton of hilarious moments in every cartoon, but the best is in "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CWQu2K_kTpA Taxi Turvy]]," where Bluto breaks the status quo by stealing Popeye's spinach just before he can use it... and is immediately hit by a train.
