I'd give it a full 5 for Evil but it's fucking with one of my favorite cartoon characters and I don't want to encourage it.
Camonk - 2010-04-25 Thank god, dude, cause tons of cartoon executives read this place for ideas!
blase - 2008-05-03 The mid 80s was a period of unprecedented fecundity for toons
too bad not for ideas
chumbucket - 2008-05-03 HB didn't ruin Popeye, Robin Williams did
Corman's Inferno - 2008-05-04 I would take a million Robert Alman-directed, Jules Feiffer-penned musicals before this horseshit.
Caminante Nocturno - 2008-05-03 So Bluto married Janet Reno? That's fine, but since the major cause of Popeye and Bluto's animosity was their feelings towards Olive, why are they still fighting now that they've both settled down?
I know what the answers to these questions are. I'm just being snooty about how crappy a cartoon this was.
snothouse - 2008-05-03 The beginning is just Mr. Show's "Spite Marriage: The Animated Series".
Hakujinjoe - 2008-05-04 I remember this show. It's just as bad as you would imagine. As a kid, I used really love popeye, so when this show came out my hopes and dreams where built up and then subsequently smashed to pieces.
Chalkdust - 2008-05-04 You know you're in for trouble when the offspring of two cartoon characters is drawn in a completely different style.
Popeye's son looks suspiciously unlike his father.
dementomstie - 2008-05-04 I think they inflated the sea monster with air. The lines are there to indicate that they are creating wind currents from blowing so hard. But yes, there is probably a very large amount of spit in that sea monster too.
Evilhead - 2008-05-04 In the beginning did he just tear the roof off that cab for the hell of it? What a dick.
dementomstie - 2008-05-04 Wow. I think people are just looking at this whole "Popeye's son looks nothing like his parents" thing wrong. Clearly both Popeye and Olive have the recessive gene for "blonde surfer". This was a common problem in the 80's and many surfers were born to non-surfer parents. Oddly enough the "Huge and terrible bi-ceps" gene carried through but only with the addition of spinach which Popeye Jr according to Wikipedia "hates but respects spinach".
