The Spinach Follies

Mr. Elzie Crisler Segar, b. 1894 in Illinois, was a Cartoonist Extraordinaire. He was hired by the Hearst Company, where he started a successful strip called Thimble Theatre in 1919. In 1929 he introduced Popeye the Sailor, which was a big hit.

Though Mr. Segar died in 1938, Popeye went on in the hands of various writers and artists, eventually branching into film.

Rhinos like the funny papers, full of irrational behavior, and over-the-top characters. Also, We too like spinach.
