Did you know that there exists a very special history between Popeye and PEZ candy? PEZ began making dispensers in the 1940s, and they were originally very plain and intended for adults who were trying to quit smoking.
Throughout the 1950s, PEZ introduced a number of more playful designs intended for children. In 1958, PEZ introduced the very first PEZ dispenser featuring a popular licensed character. If you guessed it was Popeye, you would be correct!
We were blown away by the enthusiastic response from fans on Facebook when Popeye channeled Dos Equis’ “Most Interesting Man in the World” in his own parody of the super popular internet meme.
Would you like to see Popeye do more fun takes on your favorite Internet memes, like Popeye imitating the Futurama meme or Olive Oyl as the Overly Attached Girlfriend?
Here is a funny cartoon from cartoonist Dan Piraro, creator of the hilarious comic panel Bizarro, as he imagines what my first date with Olive Oyl might have been like.
