Striking Oyl!

One Hundred Years ago today (!), Mr. Elzie C. Segar introduced Castor Oyl to his cartoon strip, Thimble Theatre. Castor was the older brother of Olive Oyl, and son to Cole and Nana Oyl.

It was not until nine years later that Popeye the Sailor made his first appearance in the same strip, sweeping Olive Oyl off her feet.

If you thumb back to December 9, 2019, you will see that YIR has dealt with Mr. Segar before. Rhinos everywhere are still chuckling.
