" I yam what I yam. "
Popeye ( Exact date unknown )
Famous cartoon comic strip character . . . made his debut in the Thimble Theatre comic strip ( King Features ), created by Elzie Segar, genius cartoonist.
In his later years, after the comic was strong and going full blazes Bluto his nemesis appears, then because of ownership to the name Bluto, the almost identical brute appears but his name is now Brutus. Bluto/Brutus . . . same bully.
In my humble opinion, the greatest of all comics.
