Popeye the sailor man will be completing his 92nd birthday in January of 2022. Developed by Elzie Crisler Segar in the late 1920s as a comic strip. In this series of cartoons, you must have noticed that Popeye is always casually found with a can of spinach in his pocket. This was nothing random, but actually a very well thought of the campaign. You see in the 1960’s children of America had already developed poor eating habits and nothing seemed to be able to coax them out of it. Nothing but one cartoon! Indeed this cartoon character may be viewed as the superhero who did what many American mothers failed to do, that way to feed their children a better diet. The spinach reference in the show was depicted in a manner that whenever Popeye consumed his can of spinach, we would develop muscles and get great strength to defeat his enemies!
And that was that soon the children of America started to binge on green leafy vegetables!
This popeye action figure is the perfect gift for folks who love the popular show. Perfect collectible to have as a decor option.
