Popeye's First Appearance in Thimble Theater

E.C. Segar created the comic Thimble Theater back in 1919. I'll show you some of the earlier strips from time to time where Olive Oyl appeared and looked a heck of a lot different than she did later. But right now I wanted to show you Popeye's first appearance in the strip in January of 1929.

Yep. It took almost ten years for Popeye to show up. I'm sure glad he did.

Pretty cool, huh?
