Image: Thimble Theater, Introducing Popeye: A Complete Compilation of the First Adventures of Popeye, 1928-1930, by E. C. Segar (Author). Publisher: Hyperion Pr (June 1, 1977) Popeye's Birthday (1929)
-- Popeye the Sailor is a fictional hero notable for appearing in comic strips and animated films as well as numerous television shows. He made his first public appearance on January 17, 1929, in Elzie Crisler Segar's then 10-year-old comic strip, THIMBLE THEATRE, which originally revolved around Olive Oyl's family. Although he was introduced as a minor walk-on character, Popeye quickly muskled his way into the limelight and eclipsed the other characters to become the star of THIMBLE THEATRE.

Read: Thimble Theater, Introducing Popeye
-- The 1928 Thimble Theatre stories leading up to and include Popeye's early days in Thimble Theatre. Castor Oyl and Ham Gravy found a good friend and protector in Popeye, and Olive Oyl found a real sweetheart. See how Popeye met them, his voyage to Dice Island, how Popeye became invulnerable, when he fell in love with Olive, how his and Castor's depression-related investment led to Popeye's first meeting with the Sea Hag on her ship, the Black Barnacle.

-- Whether romancing his longtime sweetheart, Olive Oyl, rescuing defenseless infant Swee'pea, or wrestling his nasty nemesis, Bluto, Popeye summons his spinach-induced strength to save the day. With one gulp of the vitamin-rich vegetable, Popeye transforms his scrawny body into a human dynamo! For high-seas hijinks or landlocked levity, turn to the hilarious animated antics of that two-fisted tar -- Popeye.

-- This intricately designed Popeye collectible stands 5 inches tall, using the classic comic book vibrant color scheme. He wears light brown sailor shoes, blue jeans, as well as his classic black and red shirt. Popeye's window box is illustrated showing a scene on a crisp summer day on deck with Olive, Wimpy, and Bluto.
