    In one cartoon, the magic Wiffle Bird put a spell on Wimpy so that every time Wimpy said "hamburger", he turned into a WEREWOLF!

    There has been a lot of commercials featuring Popeye and co. I found this commercial for an orange flavored energy drink and according to someone in the comment section Popeye is voiced by Mel Blanc in the commercial, which is interesting.

    Hey, so because of the collections being a big thing here for the sake of good Popeye I have to ask: what is it about Segar that makes his strip so acclaimed, and how would one rank the collections from Fantagraphic for someone who is looking to try them?

    Sadly the main strip is a shadow of its former self, now being an above average one gag strip abandoning the serialized plots that the original Thimble Theatre strip helped innovate. It's state is quite disappointing especially when compared to the current Dick Tracy strips, which have been on a roll ever since the current creative team of Joe Staton and Mike Curtis injected new life into the strip a couple of years prior.

    However, there's a secondary Popeye strip called Popeye Cartoon Club, which is features strips by guest creators and some of them are quite interesting.

    The strips done by Ralp Milholland are especially enjoyable because of his knowledge of Popeye lore

    You can find some of the guest art here, because Kings Features website doesn't show older strips unless you have a Prime account on their website

    It'd be nice if all of these were collected into a book once it's done.

    One of my favorite cartoon shorts of all time (I’ve never made a list but I’m guessing it’d crack the top ten) is the 1936 “Popeye the Sailor Meets Sindbad the Sailor”.
    That toon is pure bliss!

    Riv86672, I DO agree! The Roc, the 2-headed Giant!
    Popeye vs. the Forty Thieves is another I especially like.

    didn't Peter David write a one-shot many years ago?

    At least the strips are officially available unlike titles like Joe Palooka, which has fallen into public domain and only strips from the 30s, 40s and 50s as well as the Harvey comics can be found online while the 60s, 70s and 80s strips are extremely hard to find and cost quite much to get from Ebay.

    That's correct, The Wedding Of Popeye And Olive, the third and final Popeye comic from the short lived Ocean Comics but is the only one not easily available.
