-Popeye the Sailor is an American animated series of comedic, theatrical cartoon shorts started in 1933 by Max and Dave Fleischer’s Fleischer Studios and based on the comic strip character created by E.C. Segar.

-The shorts tend to revolve around a villain, usually Bluto, making a move on Popeye’s “sweetie,” Olive Oyl. Popeye defeats his foe with his signature move of eating spinach to gain superhuman strength.

-In addition to becoming iconic within mainstream public consciousness, the majority of 231 Popeye short subjects are highly acclaimed by animation historians and fans.
