Has Popeye been relevant in her lifetime? If I got a question wrong about a comic which stopped being a thing decades before I was born (Katzenjammer Kids, Yellow Kid, whatever), I wouldn’t take it too much to heart.

Seriously, the food chain is going to be far more relevant than a bygone cartoon that was pretty long in the tooth even when I was a kid. I doubt the movie had much impact on that.

No.

For that matter, has Mickey Mouse been relevant? I mean obviously yes, in his role as a Disney symbol, but it’s not like Steamboat Willie and other Mickey-related cartoons are really watched much today. Or the Peanuts characters. Yes, in that case maybe the Christmas and Halloween specials keep the characters alive, but a fair number of Millennials (and all of GenZ) were too young to read the strip in papers.

Technically, do we know that spinach is Popeye’s favorite food? He seems to use it more as a performance-enhancing drug, eating it straight from the can, rather than incorporating it in a culinary sense in meals.

It’s called Family Fortunes in the UK
I guess feud was too violent? I mean we did change the title of the kids cartoon to Teenage Mutant Hero Turtles after all :smiley:

I’m disappointed she is perpetuating negative stereotypes :confused:

Didn’t you guys change Michelangelo’s nunchakus to to a grappling hook, or was that Germany I am thinking of. Either way, I don’t see a lot of reports of ninja violence, so good job?

I think “gunshot” was a stupider answer.

I think he did the exact thing she did, a rapid-fire word association instead of listening to the question. Alas, the wrong word.

You’re kidding, right? Did you notice that the other contestant guessed correctly to that painfully easy question?
