  • On June 22, 2017 why did you removed an image of POG caps from the Pipeye, Peepeye, Poopeye and Pupeye aricle?

  • Dear admin and Sailorpedia, thank you for this great site full of resources on our beloved character.

    My name is Samer, I have a piece of old Popeye cartoon that I have been looking for with no luck, and starting to think I am going crazy or just imagining things, and would appreciate your help. 

    The story is simply about Popeye in a "Jason and the argonauts" setting, you know, the golden fleece story. I know what youre thinking, its not that episode that can easily be found online. Its more like a longer full episode, a film of some sort, and I remember the animation being really smooth and seemed modern to me at the time (early 90s). I remember for instance Popeye battling the famous skeleton army at the outset of the film (i think it was the beginning). Suffice it to say, Iam not 100% on anything that I am writing here except the skeletons part, (I think :) Can you please helpo me in identifing this? am I mixing things up? thank you in advance.

      There are 61 clips in this Popeye and Son collection. You may find the one you are looking for.

  • He portrayed Jerry Lewis in Popeye's 20th Anniversary, he was the Martians in Popeye's the Ace of Space, He was Ali and the Third Thief in Popeye makes a Movie. And that is about it, he probably did more roles but they are not listed. I got most of the information on him from the book Obituaries in the Performing Arts, 2006: Film, Television, Radio, Theatre By Harris M. Lentz III and his actual obituary.

    • Oh, thanks for the heads up, but I am very happy with the current layout and like the way it is. I also made a special animated background to go with the color concept and it took ages to make each and every graphic, so I do not want anything changed. Btw, I really like the new color concept on this Wikia.

    • Yeah, I saw the new background, very nice! Don't worry, if I do any experiments they'll be temporary, I can assure you.

  • I love spinach! Not because it would make me stronger but because it's delicious. Spinach salad, spinach pie, spinach soup... A spinach turnover is one of the most delicious things you could ever eat! Yeah!

  • Read this on BCDB and thought of our 'debates' (posted by Shadejford June 22, 2003):

    This is a clever entry in the series, but I have a love/hate feeling towards it. Some Popeye fans have wondered if the Famous Studios folks were on Bluto's side. I think they showed it in this cartoon. It shows that Popeye is totally helpless in handling Bluto without his spinach. That's why I've always felt that the Famous Studios Popeye is not the same Popeye that appears in E.C. Segar's Thimble Theatre, let alone in the Fleischer films. Segar and Fleischer, to my knowledge, never depicted Popeye in such a helpless fashion. They didn't depict Popeye as being so heavily dependent on his spinach. Popeye comes on top in this cartoon, but I couldn't help wondering if this film wasn't a manifestation of the Famous directors' inner contempt for the character. This cartoon is almost a self-parody of the whole Famous Studios Popeye. I think it also shows that the Famous directors didn't really understand Popeye.

    • Well, the person writing that seems to feel like myself about it (as a Popeye fan) . About that cartoon - maybe the formula had grown so stale even the Famous people were trying a little self-parody or a bit of a different spin.

  • Why does this place feel like a "Praise Bluto/Bluto Fetish Collection" Wiki rather than a Popeye wiki? Aside from the odd pictures here and there and the many irrelevant articles that should just be links to Wikipedia rather than articles (such as the tanktop article), a good portion of material seems to be dedicated to glorifying Bluton while posting images solely of Popeye getting beaten up. Even the entire Speedbagging article is pretty much just a collection of Popeye getting beaten up with no equally balanced amount of all characters who have speedbagged.

    • That's Ctlftr who likes it that way. He's very passionate about that sort of thing and, while actually I fought him in the past, now I think it's more constructive to just let him make the articles pertinent to his fandom as he's been creating them in a more reasonable way. (I'd agree that it's a bit too much tho)

  • Hello, 186 contributor.
    I've noticed that you've removed the deletion tag from that page. I put it on there because of reasons stated in the comments section. I believe that if the page is to be restored, it 1) needs to be moved to a more fitting title and 2) needs information. I would add more information, but again, read the comments section.

    • Hello. I made that article (based on one I found on another wiki) as something of a "failsafe" mostly for technical reasons: there isn't really an active admin here, and there's no way for other users to delete vandalism-oriented pages/files; at least the articles of such nature can be redirected to that place.

    • Never had that happen on any wiki before so I found it odd. Thanks for the clarification.

  • Hi 186 contributor,

    I saw your comment on the Western Publishing page but I don't understand.

    • I'm talking about the individual issue articles, which you name "Shame on You" and "Sea Stories" instead of "Popeye #1" and "Popeye the Sailor #66" (or whatever form works). And yes, that can indeed lead to such an assumption if one does not read everything.

    • Well this debate has now been rendered a Moot point any way. My idea of using titles will not work. I'm now developing an infobox to use instead.

  • Hi 186 contributor,

    I want your opinion for something I've been working on. I'm only 45% done with the All-New Popeye Hour series but I started doing research on my next project. Since you first created the page for the comic books I wanted your input on my idea to expand it.

    I want to add the other books and comics that were done before, during and after the classic issues you added. So far I have found 40 other publishers to add to your 5 publishers and 150 issues to add to your 171 issues.

    I would also like to reformat your page with a table to include titles and publication dates. And I would like to further expand your skeleton index for each issue into a page of its own with a full index, publication details, story summaries, issue credits, list of characters, images and whatever else I can find when I finish my research.

    So far I have enough information to fully index all of the original issues, all the cover images, several story images for the first 44 issues (obtained from the new reprints) and information to create summaries for them.

    I also have the dates and publication details of my new ones, information to fully index half, 95% of the cover images and information to create some of the summaries.

    What do you think? I can provide more detailed information in example pages if you want.

    • If you want to tackle it, why not? Scoobypedia indexes all comics, for example - and you might want to check there for a format example. I confess I'd find that to be a mammoth undertaking (Although my favorite Popeye is Sagendorf's, I've only collected a small portion of that long series). If you do, always expect me to chime in and do my tweaks!

      BTW: Don't forget to officially start the adoption process at the Community Central...

    • Hi 186 contributor,

      Yes it is a big project, 320 issues. But the All-New Popeye Hour is big too, 276 shorts. But both projects can be done and I think I can do it.

      Thanks for suggesting the Scooby wiki as a format example. It was one of the sites that put the idea in my head to begin with. I plan to combine the Scoobypedia format and the Grand Comics Database format if I can architect it properly.

      And thanks for the adoption reminder. It has not yet been a week since I posted the blog. Plus I have not had any comment from your friend Ctlftr. I know he has been active because I've been following the disagreement the two of you are having over Beach Peach. The conflicts you both have may cause me to not adopt the site. I'm still thinking it over.

    • Maybe that's why a Wiki needs a moderator, don't you think?

    • You're absolutely correct. That's why it's so hard for me to make my decision.
