Sailor. Tough-Guy. Hero. Legend.

Classic Popeye

That's Popeye. An underdog with bulging forearms, a mean uppercut and a love of canned spinach. Unassuming, unsophisticated and undeterred by a challenge, from the minute he walked into the comic strip, THIMBLE THEATER, and muttered his famous “’Ja think I’m a cowboy?” line, Popeye the Sailor Man captured the hearts of millions of fans around the globe. As the star of his own comics strips and animated series on the big screen and small, Popeye became quickly ingrained in American culture, and today remains one of the most recognizable pop-culture icons in the world.

Supporting Cast

Olive Oyl

Olive Oyl first stole Popeye's heart when she mistakenly kissed him on the cheek, igniting Popeye's heart and initiating their long, tumultuous love affair. Olive is unfailingly self-confident, clever, romantic, passionate and determined. Her personality is full of unapologetic quirks and complementary contradictions which make her equally relatable and charming.


Popeye's adoptive nephew who always finds himself tagging along in the family's funny, mischievous adventures. He can be a handful, but Popeye and Olive love him all the same.


Bluto "The Terrible" - lower than bilge scum, meaner than the devil and strong as an ox. He's known as the only man living who might lick Popeye...but hasn't succeeded yet. He's a big, mean fighting machine, Popeye's frenemie who is always stirring up trouble and trying to steal Popeye's girl.


Well-known throughout Sweethaven as a man highly motivated by food (especially hamburgers), Wimpy is also recognized for regularly mooching and having a deceptively high level of intelligence. He will do whatever it takes to get a free hamburger or meal, even making a promise to pay you back when it's unlikely that he will keep his word.


Popeye's imaginary pet from the 5th dimension. He has special abilities to disappear and reappear, and is highly intelligent and loved by Popeye and Olive.

Popeye's healthy and active lifestyle gives him the confidence to rise to any occasion. And, as the embodiment of strength and fitness, he inspires us all to work hard, be persistent, and stay strong to the finish…with the help of a hefty amount of spinach.
