From comic strip hero to motion picture star, here is the history of Popeye, one of the best-loved cartoon characters. Animated series and films are examined, noting the different directions each studio took and the changing character designs of the Popeye family. Popeye in other media--comics, books, radio, and even a stage play--is thoroughly covered, as are Robert Altman's 1980 live-action film, and Popeye memorabilia.
