Popeye the Sailor first appeared in a comic strip in the 1920's. For 25 years or so from the early 1930's until 1957 Paramount Pictures made cartoon shorts of Popeye in his always distinctive and never changing Popeye outfit. T.V. cartoons, books and video games showing him in Popeye costume were and remain popular until the present time when Popeye fancy dress is often requested for parties.
The trademark Popeye Costume always included him smoking a pipe and wearing his cap. His muscular frame and superhuman strength after eating spinach, always meant he could take a righteous stance which always stood him in good stead when confronting adversaries like Bluto aka Brutus who vied for the affections of his sweetheart, Olive Oyl. Popeye & Olive Oyl costumes were very recognisable when they strolled along together singing his theme song 'I'm Popeye the Sailor Man'.
