Hardtack, the nephew of Brutus, is a character that first appeared in the 86th issue of the Popeye comic book (in 1967). A mischievous and unruly child, he is meant to oppose Popeye's adopted son Swee'Pea and is likewise depicted as a gowned infant. Hardtack would go on to make further appearances during the same year, but he has not been used in newer comics.

Being Brutus' nephew, he is most likely related to Bluto and Burlo, and could possibly be the child of one of them.

Hardtack was created by Bud Sagendorf.
