Jimmy Donnelly was a child actor who played the role of Matey the Newsboy on Popeye's radio show.


  • Matey (also known as "Sonny") was a non-Segar character who filled in as a substitute for Swee'Pea.
  • Wheatena put so much money into the broadcast rights paid to KFS and into leasing national airtime thru the NBC-WEAF Network that their remaining budget did not afford them enough money to contract Jack Mercer or Mae Questel (who had voiced Swee'Pea in the cartoons).
