Popeye


Subdeacon Joe

Recommended Posts

My Mom told me that when I was an infant she could put me in a baby seat and turn on Popeye, I guess it was played every day at a certain time back in the early 60’s, and I would sit for an hour quietly watching Popeye while she got things done around the house. 
 

She claimed that Popeye was the reason I lived spinach and other vegetables. :lol:

Me dear Pappy said Popeye is why he favored spinach.

I hated the stuff.

Wasn't until I was a man grown that I discovered spinach isn't grown in cans.

Love raw spinach!

I was a BIG five-year-old Engineer Bill fan!

 

As I recall, from time to time there would be a Superman cartoon; sometimes, he would have a quick shot of Superman himself (a real person) standing behind a screen, where he'd change back into Clark Kent.  That fella happened to be our next-door neighbor*.  Between that and my Uncle Joe driving the ice cream truck life was good.  ^_^

 

We lived in La Puente.  I do believe that town has changed substantially since 1956.  :huh:

I don't know why, but every time I hear the name Popeye...I think of this from when I was a kid (with the theme music)...

 

He's Popeye the sailor man

Lives in a garbage can

He eats all the worms 

And spits out the germs

He's Popeye the sailor man!!!!
