Popeye's First Appearance

Popeye made his first public appearance on Jan. 17, 1929, in Elzie Segar’s then nine-year-old comic strip, THIMBLE THEATRE, which originally revolved around Olive Oyl’s family.  His first and still remembered line was, “Ja think I’m a cowboy?”

And, he’s still alive and well.  On Dec. 8, 2009, Popeye was featured in the Google logo to honor the anniversary of the birth of his creator, Elzie Crisler Segar. The Google Doodle appeared with the mouseover text, “E.C. Segar’s Birthday.”
