Friday Fun: “Popeye in Goonland,” 1938

In this early Popeye cartoon by Max Fleischer, we learn some valuable information.  To begin with, he’s forty years old in 1938.  Next, we learn that his father abandoned him at birth.  Poor Popeye.  In search of his “Pappy,” he travels to Goonland—something that does not seem to faze him at all.  There, he encounters some unusual beings with extremely large ribcages.  Enjoy!
