    Segar's vertically-printed comic strip 'Looping the Loop' instantly took off. He constantly insults, tricks and even tries to murder! This is the mark of a great daily cartoonist, and Segar raised the bar in quality of art and dialogue A pompous, short-sized man, Castor has a lot to compensate for. But on 10 December they both soon discovered a far more intrigueing creature. Outcault encouraged him and introduced him at the Chicago Herald.

    Wimpy stands as a one-of-a-kind icon some 70 years after his creation, the most likeable lowdown cad ever to grace the comics page. Early life[ edit ] Segar was born on December 8,and raised in Chester, Illinoisa small town near the Mississippi River. Generations of children have invented their own naughty playground variations of this song. Although he first appeared on 12 Septemberit still took until before Geezil's name was permanently established. Segar also had a massive impact on European humoristic comics artists.

    Popeye also has a statue in Crystal City, Texas. Skilled at playing drums, he also provided musical accompaniment to films and vaudeville acts in the local theater, where he was eventually given the job of film projectionist at the Chester Opera House, where he also did live performances. Segar's Sappo Final years and death Unfortunately, in his final years, Segar suffered from leukemia and liver disease. Between performances he sometimes went to the projection room and was eventually allowed to operate the camera himself.

Bud Sagendorfwho had been Segar's assistant sincewas commissioned with doing merchandising artwork and, from the s and s on, would be drawing 'Popeye' comic books.

Segar even moved to New York City for this occasion. A combination of slapstick violence and outrageous cartoony gags. For the same paper he also made various sports-themed cartoons and worked as a drama critic. The only cure is a therapeutic berry that grows on the wacky island of Nazilia, deep in the territory of a lost tribe of hulking man-beasts… The frantic antics and comedy continue when June and Mr.

These strips are masterpieces of comic invention. Each strip pays off in a fine gag, yet the narrative accumulates to reveal a good satire of war politics. Initially, this strip revolved about the exploits of suburban couple John and Myrtle Sappo. Yet Segar was careful to not overuse it. Popeye the Sailor — who famously attributed his strength "to the finish" to his consumption "of spinach" — first entered the public consciousness in Januaryin Segar's newspaper comic strip Thimble Theatre.

From that moment on he appeared uncensored in the series. The voice actors captured the characters' personalities so wonderfully that even today nobody can read the comics without imagining any other voices from Popeye, Olive, Bluto and Wimpy's mouths.

He commonly signed his work simply Segar or E. Sappo ran as a topper to the Thimble Theatre Sunday pages.

Popeye is a scrappy little seaman with bulging forearms, a squinty eye, and a screwed-up face, punctuated with an ever-present pipe in his mouth. He is always ready for a fight instead of a reasonable discussion, has a gravelly voice, and is constantly mumbling under his breath.

Geezil's hatred for Wimpy is such that he isn't shy about expressing it. They were the strip's leads for about a decade. Download and read a page PDF excerpt This unusual method might explain why night-time suspense was a recurring motif in Segar's work.

Chaplin just didn't work as a double act. The gag comic revolves around a tiny, bald-headed inventor, John Sappo, and his large chubby wife Myrtle. Other stories include the melodramatic "A Sock for Susan's Sake" Popeye becomes the protector of a girl who lives on the streetsPopeye's boxing duel with King Smacko, the return of Thimble Theatre's original star Castor Oyl as a detective who solves the case of "Plastic Pan," the Poopdeck Pappy yarn "Wild Oats" culminating in a six-month prison sentence for the rambunctious oldster"The Valley of the Goons" in which Popeye is shocked to discover who the new leader of the Goons isand the self-explanatory "King Swee'Pea.

Much like Segar, Uderzo also had a fondness for drawing huge, gorilla-type male characters, while Asterix' magic potion isn't unlike Popeye's spinach. He took a correspondence course in cartooning from W.
