Reader Aaron Neathery sends in this observation:

I saw this on Ebay and had to share. popeyepinball.jpgI really, really don’t understand Pachinko, but the new (not too bad) QT clips on the Sammy site do give me a hankering for some fever dream-inspired Popeye anime. Frankly, I think King Features should consider it. After all, through the work of Popeye fan Osamu Tezuka, the Fleischer style lies close to the roots of anime and manga. A Japanese production would probably maintain more fidelity with Segar and Fleischer than past American efforts (Popeye and Son). Lord knows I’d watch it.
