Popeye the Sailor Man was a cartoon which was created first by Fleischer Studios in 1933. The very first episode was billed as a Betty Boop, but featured Popeye as the main character. William "Billy" Costello was the voice of Popeye, while Mae Questel lent her voice to Olive Oyl, Popeye's platonic girlfriend. He was always bullied by Bluto, a big burly man who was usually a sailor too. He was voiced by William Pennell. In 1942 the series of shorts were made by Famous Studios and were usually based on a war time theme. Other featured characters were Pipeye, Pupeye and Peepeye, who were Popeye's nephews who would stay with him from time to time. Also, there was a baby named Swee' Pea, which was never really explained who he belonged too, since he would stay with both Olive and Popeye from episode to episode. Another character who made an occasional appearance was Wimpy, a chubby fellow who loved to eat hamburgers. The series of cartoons lasted until 1957.
