Fleet Week New York is the City’s time-honored celebration of the sea services. After a one-year absence, Fleet Week has returned to New York. From now through May 27, nearly 1,500 service members from the U.S. Navy, Marines and Coast Guard will arrive in New York City and participate in ship tours, parades and aerial demonstrations.
Popeye would like to salute the organizers and service members who are participating in this year’s Fleet Week New York celebration!
Popeye loses the little hair that he has on his head in honor of Bald Cartoons, a global awareness project that aims to spread the message that a child with cancer deserves to be seen just like any other child.
Cartoon characters recognized around the world, including Popeye and Olive Oyl, have joined forces to empower children with cancer and show that bald is beautiful.

It’s National Spinach Day in the U.S., but this leafy green vegetable is enjoyed around the world 365 days a year, with practically every international cuisine including it in their recipe repertoire.
Spinach is loaded with good-for-you nutrients like potassium, iron, folate and vitamins A and K. It even provides vitamin E, calcium and zinc. When combined with high vitamin C foods, like tomatoes or lemon juice, spinach provides a powerful infusion of iron too.
It’s no wonder why spinach is Popeye’s favorite go-to, pick-me-up vegetable for energy!
