Warner Bros. taking Popeye and letting Adult Swim get their hands on him. Make it an animated 15 minute serial that goes 24 episodes to make one full story. The theme behind the show would be to play Popeye off as the meanest, most badass motherfucker ever.
Bring him back into a fictional version of the thirties where sailors sail off to unknown far away lands.
Theme song (only on the first part of course) two minutes of an orchestral version of Popeye the Sailor with clips of Popeye beating up people. It’ll be fantastic!
First plotline: he meets Olive Oyl and they don’t like each other at first. Then he meets Bluto and their rivalry starts.
Second plotline goes with the Pirate Bluto storyline with the sucken treasure as a plot point.
Third plotline: Popeye vs Hell. Start off with Popeye saving Olive from a train track. He can’t save her in time, so he goes to destroy the train with his fists. (Yeah that’s right) The next thing he knows he’s in Heaven. For his bravery and the fact he died saving someone he got entry. But he’s got unfinished business so he punches St. Peter into submission and gets sent to Hell. Only by defeating the Lord of Darkness can he get his life back. But this is Popeye we’re talking about..
There Warner Bros. I wrote you three years worth of a TV show while simultaneously bringing a classic character back to his roots. Now where’s my Family Guy money?
As I lay here on my half broken bed (one support decided to give out), I think to myself: how do you draw a circle character upside down when he has no discernible mouth and without confusing his eyebrows for a jaunty mustache?
As I lie here in bed, knowing I have to be up in four hours, a thought occurred to me. Its been twelve years since m&m’s started their Millennium commercials.
