Cartoon, Popeye Fight to the Finish

Cartoon Network will present one of animation's classic characters in a new
light in late-night.

Beginning Oct. 28 at 1 a.m., Cartoon will bow I'm Popeye, a weekly
half-hour program featuring three of the sailor man's episodes that have been
restored to their original theatrical states, the network announced

A number of the cartoons have never been shown on television in their
original form.

The cartoons will be culled from hundreds of color and black-and-white
theatrical shorts from Fleischer Studios and Famous Studios, ranging from 1933's
first Popeye cartoon, Popeye the Sailor, through 1957's Spooky

Cartoon anticipates that the show will play well with adults, scheduling
I'm Popeye immediately after its recently launched three-hour,
adult-oriented block, 'Adult Swim,' which airs Sundays starting at 10
