Wilco gets Popeyeified for the Sailor Man’s Seasoned Return

I don’t quite understand how the swarthy, slapstick cartoon, Popeye, fits with the uptempo, lively sound of Wilco’s new track “Dawn on Me,” but I am excited to see the spinach-guzzling seafarer once again.

Wilco teamed up with King Features (who’s been producing Popeye cartoons since 1932) to create the first hand-drawn Popeye cartoon in more than 30 years. Featuring Popeye, Olive Oyl, Swee’ Pea, Bruno, and the hamburger-obsessed Wimpy, this collaborative music video draws Wilco into the animated world of America’s oldest blue collar hero and incorporates some of the series reoccurring jokes for fans. “Ug-gug-gug-gug.”
