...is a phantasmogorically magical, whimsically supercolossal, extravagoutlandishly megaspectacularawesometastic candyland for boys and girls of all ages. It is also an ongoing Tumblr full of the sights and sounds that bring a smile to Will's weary, jaded face.
WILL SLOAN took a good, long look at his Twitter account and said, "Y'know, I'm not being narcissistic and self-indulgent enough." He is a writer who can sometimes be found in Toronto. He met Dolph Lundgren once. He also lives at Twitter.com/WillSloanEsq
Popeye lives in the bleakest universe of any popular cartoon character of his era. A sad, grey urban hellscape where it’s every man for himself and nothing is beyond the pale. A land where people go to elaborate, violent, and possibly deadly lengths just to spite others.
In Bridge Ahoy, Bluto inexplicably owns the only ferry connecting a bustling metropolis to the mainland, which he uses as an excuse to be sadistic. Popeye and Olive think this is unacceptable, and so retaliate by building a bridge (we are thankfully spared the many city council meetings that Popeye and Olive presumably had to attend to make this happen). An orgy of violence erupts. Ironically, Popeye is acting against his own interest as a sailor.
This cartoon does have a jaunty theme song, though.
