I’m Popeye the Sailor Man,
I’m Popeye the Sailor Man,
I’m strong to the finish
Cause I eats me spinach.
I’m Popeye the Sailor Man.

This song is still known in 2013, by a young, technologically advanced generation. The Popeye the Sailor character, has been a part of our media cultural for over 80 years. His spinach obsession,which gave him supernatural strength, his laughter, and his adventures with Olive Oyl, Sweet Pea, hamburger hungry J. Wellington “Whimpy", Bluto/Brutus, and other characters, are forever in our memories and heart.

Popeye was originally created by E.C. Segar and was introduced to the world in 1929. In the 1930's the Popeye character was a popular comic strip and remains in some national newspapers today. In 1935 the moniker, Popeye the Sailor was heard on the radio and ran until 1938. In the 1950's, Paramount Picture Studios made Popeye, an animated TV cartoon hero. These short films were so popular with children, adults and the spinach industry, that a membership club was established and a Saturday movie matinee was held in theaters.
