Popeye Celebrated with Museum Exhibition


The Museum of Television and Radio in New York unveiled an exhibition on Saturday that celebrated 75 years of the spinach-guggling cartoon character, Popeye. The exhibition features rarities and collectibles from Popeye’s TV and comic career.

The curator of the exhibit, Barry Munosh, said “There are very few characters that are that old and still in the public consciousness. It's quite impressive to stick around that long and stay recognizable."

Popeye became such an icon in the early 1930’s that Spinach consumption in the United States jumped 33%. He first featured in the “Thimble Theatre” comic strip in 1929 and was created by E.C Segar.
