e.c. segar's popeye comic strips are the REAL popeye. they show the one eyed spinach eater in all his glory.

the cartoons by max fleischer, however, are weak and stupid. in these, popeye does nothing except beat up bluto.

in the comic strips, popeye has a wide variety of opponents, including toar, jabbo, the sea hag, jack snork, mr. chizzleflint, clint gore, lem kronch, and general bunzo, as well as an assortment of nameless brutes who pop up for no reason. this is a wide variety of villians who beat bluto a thousand to one.

i am arguing that the comic strips are better. you are arguing that the cartoons are better. good luck!

i concur, sir!

the comic strips are better by a thousand fold.

the cartoons use the same weak routine over and over and over... you know, popeye and olive oyl, bluto beats up popeye, takes olive, popeye beats up bluto. popeye and olive together again. this routine only works for so long before it is exhausted.

the cartoons, though, have a million different setups and a million different punchlines. in these, popeye goes out west, battles the sea hag, talks politics in nazilia, fights in the ring, and scrutinizes wimpy for being such a loafer. the plots are more dramatic and, frankly, reflect the era much better.

i await your next argument.
