Setting the waaaaay back machine to the year I was born, 1980, we have one of the finest comic based movies to ever be made, Popeye. You might scoff about this film, but look at the cast. You have Robin Williams as Popeye, Shelly Duvall as Olive Oyl, and my favorite Paul L. Smith (remember him as Rabban the Beast from Dune) as Bluto…classic movie.

I was always a fan of the cartoons when I was growing up, but watching this movie, you get a distinct feeling that things aren’t exactly how they appeared in the shorts…and that’s because they made the movie based more on the comic strip from them old-timey-days. This is a good thing. Today’s song is “Everything Is Food” and the song in which Popeye is introduced to the residents of Sweethaven.
