Popeye Spinach Collection
Popeye the Sailor is an animated TV series produced for ABC through King Features Syndicate that ran from 1960 to 1962 for 220 episodes. Episodes are grouped by production studios: Larry Harmon Pictures, Rembrandt Films/Halas and Batchelor, Gerald Ray Studios, Jack Kinney Productions, Cosgrove Hall Films and Paramount Cartoon Studios. The executive producer of the series was Al Brodax.


After the success of the original Popeye theatrical shorts produced from 1933 to 1957, King Features commissioned a new series of cartoons for television syndication starring Popeye, Olive Oyl and the newly-introduced Brutus (the name "Bluto" erroneusly believed to be unavailable). Though the series was produced using limited animation techniques (whose production values contrasted sharply to their earlier, theatrical counterparts), the series was a huge ratings success.

Popeye the Sailor aired in syndication in the US well into the 1990s. The episodes featured many characters from the original Thimble Theatre comic strip not seen in the theatrical series, including the Sea Hag, Toar, Rough House and King Blozo, and even Sappo's Professor Wotasnozzle. Notably, Popeye the Sailor marked the final time Mae Questel would voice Olive Oyl.
