Thread Name: ADD: Popeye the Sailor Man (Sammy Lerner)
Subject: RE: Lyr Add: Popeye The Sailor Man
I've been looking this up, and according to Wikipedia, the first animated Popeye cartoons were created in 1933!!

I suppose his little song was to encourage children to eat up their spinach. However we always loved our spinach anyway, and never minded eating it. It didn't make us as strong as Popeye though.
