Popeye: an illustrated cultural history
E. C. Segar's gruff but lovable sailor man first tooted his pipe to the public on January 7, 1929, on the comics page of the New York Journal, as Segar's Thimble Theatre strip. Over the decades to come, Popeye was to appear in the longest running cartoon series in film history, and on radio, television and stage - and even in a live-action feature film.
This comprehensive and illustrated history is a thoroughly updated and revised edition of the highly acclaimed 1994 work. The different directions each studio took with the animated series and films are examined, as are the changing character designs of the Popeye family. Popeye's appearances in other media - comics, books, radio, and a stage play - are thoroughly covered, as are Robert Altman's 1980 live-action film and Popeye memorabilia.
