Popeyes Birthday

This day in1929- First appearance of Popeye the Sailor in E.C. Seegar's comic strip the Thimble Theatre.
According to the King Features website, "Spinach growers credited Popeye with a 33 percent increase in U.S. spinach consumption and saving the spinach industry in the 1930s!"
Although Segar's Thimble Theatre strip, first published on December 19, 1919, was in its tenth year when Popeye made his debut, the sailor quickly became the main focus of the strip.
