Family Toons: Popeye presents Pip-Eye, Pup-Eye, Poop-Eye, & Peep-Eye (1942)

Once upon a time, Popeye had quadruplet nephews. In later years, they took one of the nephews out, leaving three.

"Pip-Eye, Pup-Eye, Poop-Eye, & Peep-Eye" made their debut in 1942.

It's almost as if Popeye himself had been cloned 4 times over in juvenile form, but the quads lack maturity, it would seem. Then again, kids weren't that into vegetables, not just spinach, back in those days. We would later see the boys take up music in what would be their best effort.

Rating: B.

Imagine having to go through life with the name "Poop-Eye"! I don't envy that kid.

I think he was the one Hanna-Barbera ultimately cut in 1978, and with good reason.

IIRC, there was a short in which 2 of Popeye's nephews or characters who distinctly resembled them) appeared as Popeye and Olive's sons in a dream, later nightmare, of Olive's where the 2 of them are married.

I think that would be either Bride & Gloom or Nearlyweds, and I know I have one of them already up.
