George Dubya Geezil
George W. Geezil, also known as simply Geezil, is a character created by E. C. Segar for his comic strip Thimble Theatre (later renamed after Popeye).


Geezil made his first appearance in the strips in 1932, as an unnamed patron in Rough House's cafe. He reappeared in 1933 as a cobbler and regular customer of Rough House who held a dislike for J. Wellington Wimpy, although until his fifth appearance, he went unnamed.

Over time, he was named Mr. Geezer, Mr. Geezle, George G. Geezil and eventually George W. Geezil by 1935, in his 33rd appearance.

Other Appearances

Geezil has had a few minor roles in Popeye cartoons, including: A Clean Shaven Man (1936), Olive's Boithday Presink (1941) and the Popeye the Sailor episode Wimpy the Moocher (1960).

In the 1980 Popeye film, Geezil was a greengrocer who was constantly arguing with Wimpy, but the two maintained a shaky friendship. Geezil was played by Richard Libertini.
