Happy Birthday Popeye

Popeye the Sailor Man is a fictional character from my childhood. I can remember the lunch time walls hosting the characters from this super fun cartoon. The creator of Popeye E. C. Segar was born December 8, 1894 and raised in a nearby town Chester Illinois. One Houndred + years later Popeye is recognized and celebrated each year in a festival in Chester Illinois where you can find a statue honoring Mr. Segar's cartoon Popeye.
