Popeye made by Elzie Crisler Segar. After the success of the original Popeye theatrical shorts produced from 1933 to 1957, King Features commissioned a new series of cartoons for television syndication starring Popeye, Olive Oyl and Bluto (renamed "Brutus" for this series). Though the series was produced using the limited animation technique (whose production values contrasted sharply to their Popeyetheatrical counterparts), the series was a huge ratings success.
