Bum Fun

This toy must have been based on Popeye's prison life.

Something wrong around every corner on that, but little can be said without "working blue". And I like how the packaging department had no idea what the design would be, and just put Popeye's head on a regular yellow pistol. Good planning and communication between departments

That's the funniest toy I've ever seen! You just know the designers were laughing while coming up with this.

So... Have you been making any cartoons lately?...or?...

It upsets me that a post of yours is now reduced to just a few images of a crappy old toy.

You need to animate more, man.

I guess thats what made Popeye want to beat everybody up.

Sven Hoek said...

Ok, so Popeye is bent over and there's a trigger coming out of his pants and you are supposed to put your finger on it and pump it and then it squirts water.

All right, send it to production.

Strangest looking Popeye toy I've seen yet. Looks like he was kicked in the stomach way too hard by Bluto.

Now you know where "blow me down" came from...

Esun said...

Well, at least the art on the label is fine...

Jorge Garrido said...

I said "what, what...in the butt."

Hey John, I was wondering if you've seen the cartoon Nick Cross made recently.

It's called Pig Farmer and it's on his blog. If you haven't, you should check it out!

Batman looks much more natural in this pose, if you ask me:
WGN Batman Squirt Gun

I hate this guy, but he does have the skinny on the '60s cartoon character ass gun craze:
