Today In History, POPEYE'S birthday.

On this date, January 17th, 1929, POPEYE makes his 1st appearance in comic strip, "Thimble Theater".

I don't know about Thimble Theater but I do know his early videos from hours in the afternoon sitting in front our family's small black and white TV watching the POPEYE CLUB hosted by Officer Don (Don Elliott). 

Officer Don was very skillful in cutting off little kids before they could holler out the F word that their older sibling coached them to do.

Larry Bradford and I had the motions and Ka-ka-ka-k-k of cartoon Popeye's laugh or cackle  and the way he went around mumbling to himself down pat.
