The All-New Popeye Hour, or, The Popeye and Olive Comedy Show, or, The All-New Popeye Show, or, Popeye: The Continuing Adventures is a television series produced by Hanna-Barbera Productions and King Features Syndicate, which originally aired on the American television channel CBS from 1978 to 1983.

The show stars Popeye, in an attempt by Hanna-Barbera to bring him back to his comic roots. Several characters from the comics were featured and Popeye went back to wearing his civilian sailor clothes, abandoning the white Navy uniform he had worn for many earlier theatrical cartoons and the previous TV show, Popeye the Sailor (although he still wore a Navy sailor's cap, like in certain comics). Bluto was also brought back, since the aforementioned show had instead employed Brutus as its main villain.

The hour-long program paired Popeye with an unrelated series, Dinky Dog, until it became a half-hour show in 1981, undergoing the name change to The Popeye and Olive Comedy Show and lasting until 1983. This series was also the last time Jack Mercer voiced Popeye before his death.

Segments

Also, in between the above segments, untitled, short "morals" would be featured starring Pipeye, Peepeye, Poopeye and Pupeye engaging in harmful activities, often with Mr. No-No. This would prompt Popeye to teach his nephews, along with the children in the audience, a life lesson.

Movie

In the second year of the series there was also a holiday movie: The Popeye Valentine Special: Sweethearts at Sea.
