HBD Pop(eye)

By some accounts, a one-eyed tar who gets children to try spinach turned 79 today. Popeye, is perhaps the most complex (in father-related terms) of all cartoon characters. His father, Poopdeck Pappy is a ne'er do well and his adopted son (after 71 years of acting in loco parentis), "Swee' Pea," never stopped crawling.

** What non-fiction dad has issues like that? **
