Popeye and Olive are now married, and they have a son, Popeye Jr. Bluto is also married- to a woman named Lizzie- and he also has a son, Tank. The kids are just like their father... except Popeye Jr. hates spinach. Wimpy has a nephew, Francis.
Olive Oyl finally became Mrs. Popeye in this 1980s version of the Popeye classic cartoon. CBS brought back the mumbling marine and the love of his life one more time in 1986 for the short-lived Popeye and Son. Popeye and Olive had gotten married, bought a house, and raised a young son named Popeye Jr., all without aging a day.
Popeye Jr. was a nine-year-old version of his pop, except for one crucial difference. Little Popeye did not care for spinach. Nevertheless, he had his own nemesis in the form of Bluto's son, Tank. Bluto, despite being a class-A brute, had managed to marry a girl named Lizzie.
As you can imagine, Popeye Jr. and Tank were often at odds, but instead of getting their aggressions out with an anvil or something equally effective, the elder Popeye would intervene and teach his son how to solve his problems without fighting. My, how times had changed.
A total of 13 half-hours (26 segments) were broadcast, all in the 1987-88 season.
