Who is Bluto in Popeye?
This is a question people living in a remote corner of the world can ask what with the comic strip of Popeye the sailor man and its animated avatar being telecast in all parts of the world for the last so many decades. For the benefit of all those who are really unaware of the central character Bluto of this film, he is the villain of the series who is all the time posing trouble for the hero Popeye and trying to impress his girlfriend Olive. Bluto is a sailor just like Popeye and perhaps stronger and bigger than our poor hero who is short, ugly, and always smoking cigar. But hero has to win and this the creator has ensured by giving him super strength and muscle power through spinach, which is a wonder food used by people all over the world. As Bluto is stronger than Popeye and he cannot beat him in a one to one fight, Popeye has to gulp a can of spinach every time he feels he is losing the battle against the villain. The small baby shown in the series sometimes is not Popeye’s baby. His name is sweat pea and belongs to some relative of the sailor.
