    Possibly as a live action TV series.

    Considering audiences - and a large % of the Hype's-dislike of the Silver/Golden Age material-this would not succeed as a faithful adaptation. Instead, we'd have a super gritty reboot where Popeye would be played by Channing Tatum, Olive Oil by some Victoria's secret model, and the climax involving a military agency deploying a nuke and Popeye savagely killing his foe, who left him with no other option.

    Passsss. I'll stick with the cartoons.

    I would, maybe, like a CGI movie.



    Fun Swedish Fact: [​IMG]

    In the northern part of Sweden we have a very popular burger-joint chain named after Wimpy, or as he's called over here: "Frasse"

    http://www.frasses.se/

    I see that they have changed their logo. When i last visited their restaurant, long time ago, their logo had Wimpy/Frasse in it. Guess the copyright hounds finally caught up with them.

    Also, the scene, in the Robin Williams movie, where Popeye fights the squid gave me nightmares as a kid. Hmm, i seem to remember a squid scene from Dr. Doolittle too, the one with Rex Harrison, not the Eddie Murphy one. That one was kinda scary too. what can i say, giant squids was my worst fear!

    Couldnt find the Popeye squid scene on Youtube, but i found this:

    Glad they cut that out. I would have pooped myself back then!

    I'm not fond of the idea of a new movie, but a new tv show could be sweet.

    Can't believe nobody has touched Popeye in so many years. He has lots of potential.

    Not a fan of the Popeye movie, but Robin Williams and Shelley Duvall were perfect casting.

    It looks like they're sorta/kinda keeping a 2D look with the CG. Finally, something daring with a CG toon instead of mimicking Dreamworks or Pixar.

    Not another live action one. A CGI Popeye could be okay. They are going to need to reintroduce/introduce the character to a younger generation who probably has no idea who he is.

    So the animated movie is over? ****.

    I believe Popeye is a concept that does well in Live Action and Animation.
