I guessed Pap, but for another reason. Not being up-to-date on my Popeye trivia, I guess pap because the other four prefixes can be a standalone word.

good one! thanks for the cartoon trivia

Cartoon trivia indeed, as i had no idea. Still fun though, this used to be my favorite cartoon as a kid. Keep them coming.

Nephews??? Popeye has nephews? Sometimes it's scary what other people know. Sometimes it's fun.

pUpeye

I got this pretty quick, but then again, I went into the Navy right after high school and my friends nicknamed me Popeye...so I had to get to know him!

Althouth I got it right, I got it wrong because it was for the wrong reason that I got it right so I basically got it wrong.

DOWNER, MAN! dOWNER!! Kidding, kinda! Coz you could stare and think about it all day, but if you didn't know the trivia, you wouldn't know the answer! Because I figured pap was a word, at least it's used for a test that females take, then I looked at it "like a grid" (lol, re: other teaser) and all the words made columns with all one letter or two letters, so my guess was , oh heck, I think it was poopeye, but now I can't look back or I'll have to rewrite all this! Show's what can happen when you look at something long enough! But, OK, I grudgingly congratulate you for this teaser! I can't believe anybody knew this! If you knew this, you should know that you're a total cartoon GEEK! Kidding, jk jk jk jk!!!!!!! Happy Thanksgiving everyone, even those outside USA!

Shawneeo, You can look back without loosing your comment by opening a new window and going back in the new window, like I am now looking at your comment while I am typing in mine!

christine77**
Nov 24, 2005

I got this one right!! But not because I knew some nephews of the spinach eating sailor!! I s'pose I just made a good guess!! But I still got it Happy Thanksgiving everyone!!

Nov 24, 2005

I guessed "peepeye" cause it's the only one with a long vowel sound I like the real answer better Did he have any nieces?? (Pupae? Puppy? Poppy?)
shawneeo*us*
Nov 24, 2005

DaveC: gee, thanks! aarg. that's hilatious about the neices and the names you made up, LOL!

Nov 24, 2005

I SO did not get that one. I guess I should watch Popeye more often- the only Popeye charactors I knew were Popeye & Olive Oil!
mogur*
Nov 24, 2005

I went with the long vowel sound, also. Would've saved a lot of people grief to put this one in the trivia category. Good puzzle, bad category.
lindquist_25Aus*
Nov 24, 2005

I guessed the right answer but for the wrong reason. I've never seen Popeye. But whatever. At least I got it right.
beaver*us
Nov 24, 2005

i got it right but for the wrong reason i thought it was because it had an a in it
southerngirl13*
Nov 24, 2005

sorry, don't watch popeye. wouldn't know. but hey, i guess it was okay for all the popeye freaks out there. (JK) anyhow, good one...i guess

oh, by the way all you popeye ppl...

HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!!!

Nov 24, 2005

That's Olive OYL. The misspelling is part of the fun. It sounds the same but is not spelled oil. Anyway, I used to watch Popeye cartoons all the time when I was a kid but do not remember nephews at all, let alone their names. The only cartoon nephews I remember are Huey, Dewey and Louie! But it was a good teaser, if a bit obscure.

I so got this!! I used to watch Popeye all the time when I was a kid! Good one! Happy Turkey Day Everybody!

HAHA Got it right BUT for the wrong reason Did not know the old sailor had nephews?????? It was a cute one.
choptlivvaAus*
Nov 24, 2005

Looks like this one sparked a lot of brain convolutions!! LOL

My guess was that it had to do with stand-alone words too. Didn't know Pop-eyes' nephews!!

Good one though!!

i got it wrong but it was fun.
jimbo46**

OK, if Popeye had nephews, who were his brother(s) and/or sister(s)? Anybody? Also, nice tip DaveC. I just used it to check your name.
okie12342004
Nov 25, 2005

I had no idea Popeye has nephews. I always figured it was his and Olive Oyls illegitimate child. Spinich from a can phooey. After watching it for a few days I decided to try spinich from the can and proved to mhself that not even popeye can eat spinich from a can.
lorelle_b*us*
Nov 25, 2005

haha...guess i'm too young, i never knew anything about popeye, except for the song
shawneeo*us*
Nov 25, 2005

Spinach is the only veggie that's really good from a can!!! How can you say it's not good? I abso. love it! Also, black beans are good from a can, but that's it, just those two.
