I Wants To See You-Rope

13 April of 1938: The airport of Le Bourget -near Paris- is crowded with photographers and bystanders eagerly waiting for the arrival of Popeye the spinach-eating sailor, who in the midst of a world tour has finally landed after having sailed across the Uniked Stakes and Londdin by boat and plane. He'll be staying in Paris for a few days to teach bystanders to be strong to the finich prior to leaving to Brussels and Hamster-dame.

This Popeye was a full-scale doll (Ha! You've been had. Admit it.)

The article was sourced from Paris-based daily newspaper Le Petit Parisien.
