Check Mr. Popeye

I’m starting to become obsessed with Popeye, or, at least, with New Orleans’ obsession with Popeye. This isn’t the most evident of the Crescent City’s obsessions, of course

    There was a popular Children’s show on WWL through the late 70’s and into the 80’s called “Popeye and Pals”. The show’s format consisted of a bunch of kids sitting around eating Popeye’s fried chicken and the host would introduce each Popeye cartoon by giving a brief synopsis. Then he and the kids would put make googles over their eyes with their hands and scream in unison, “Roll ‘Em!” right before the cartoon went on. I had the pleasure of attending a show in 1984 and it was THE experience of my early youth.
