  • Hello 186. Sorry for the lack of activity since july. Lets just say that things have been pretty hectic in my home country as of late. But order seems to be returning so I'll try and be more active and finish up the Plunder Island page as well as the other Thimble Theatre tales, however things are still quite hectic here so one can't be certain. Crime is a bit on the rise, as well as power failures.

  • Hi Joe,

    I noticed on the article for ("Ahoy, Swee'Pea, the postman jus' brang ya a package") you added a link to Aunt Jones. I thought this was strange because there is no article for Aunt Jones (or any other Jones besides Davey Jones). But it does bring up a subject I've been wanting to discus with you. I want to create an article for The Joneses. I think it's hysterical that everyone is named Jones.

    I want to create a single article to display some of The Joneses. I think characters like Aunt Jones could be linked to this article instead of a separate article for each Jones. Since this page can get very long I would to design it to use the <tabview> [similar to the <tabber> I used in Popeye Classics (comic book) article]. I hate web pages that scroll on forever.

    What do you think? I would like to know what you had in mind when you added this link.

    • Hi Chuck. Aunt Jones is a Sims/Zaboly character, "Ahoy..." is from the late 1940s, I'm not sure, but she's likely to have appeared by then. I know Sagendorf didn't follow S/Z version, but this may be an exception. Or a coincidence, really, but the possibility is big enough to link to her. I sadly haven't had the chance to make her article yet but I want to since she's a noteworthy enough character

      Aunt Jones

      ...I even have some comics with her but she's mostly a background character & there's not much info on her (is she Popeye's maid? I've seen stuff to suggest that). So I'm kinda stalled there.

      About the "Joneses": I wouldn't go that route. There's a running joke of Wimpy claiming to be "one of the Jones boys" but I doubt there's actually a "Jones family" in Popeye comics. I suppose the Jones surname is so common that it'd turn up a lot in the comics (and maybe Sagendorf had a preference towards it) but if you asked me, I'd say they're not one big family. But if you can dig around (since you have a pretty complete Popeye comic book collection) & find evidence as to their all being actually related, let me know, we should discuss a bit more before we decide they deserve an article.

    • OK, I'll continue updating my note.

      But I already have a very extensive list of Jones characters as well as several connections to Wimpy. In my opinion it is not a matter of should we have a page, but how much we should include on it. This needs more discussion.

    • I'll wait for your update then.

  • I have some questions for you.

    1). Can I make changes to several comic book character articles created by the Beast? The characters are Mr. Tillbox, Kid Kabbage, Mervin M. Mouser, Samuel Snagg and Baby Doll. They have comic story plot summaries in the Biography section. I think this should be removed from these article and placed in the articles I created for each story. I have many reasons to make these changes: a) He did a better job with his summary than I did with my synopsis. b) Not all of the plot is about the character. Although, I do plan to retain the information that is about each character. c) The text is duplicated word-for-word in each character from the same stories.

    2). Can I add Olive Oyl's Uncle Ben Zene Oyl to her character article? In the past her page was protected. Is it still protected?

    3). Why did you remove the image place holders I created for the All-New Popeye Hour episodes? I designed the page layout with the place holders to give the whole series a clean, uniformed look. It is sloppy without them. Other contributors have used place holders in other articles. I would like to replace them.

  • I'm planning to start collecting some Popeye stories on Vinyl. Is there a section for that media yet? I can't find any of those stories.

    • No, we haven't really covered that. A few mentions here and there I think. We have a few music albums but no fiction in audio form. As always, your additions are welcome!

  • 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.

  • 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)
