Shorty (voiced by Arnold Stang) is a character introduced in early Famous Studios animated cartoons in 1943. He is Popeye's short, bespectacled Navy fellow. An individual prone to cause mischief and annoy others, he is paired with Popeye in comic everyday situations both aboard the Navy ship and on shore leave, leaving Popeye in the role of "straight-man". The character appeared in only three shorts: Happy Birthdaze, The Marry-Go-Round and Moving Aweigh. He has not been seen since.
