Popeye Muscles into YouTube
King Features has entered into an agreement with kids’ digital network and studio WildBrain to manage and produce original “Popeye” content on YouTube.
The deal will introduce the first original Popeye content in more than 10 years and underscore King Features’ robust 90th-anniversary celebration, which will take place in 2019.
Moving forward, WildBrain will now control the global management of the Popeye and Friends Official YouTube Channel and will work to expand the spinach-loving sailor's presence worldwide, effective immediately. The studio will kick off the program with compilations of fan favorites including classic “Popeye,: “Popeye and Son” and “The Continuing Adventures of Popeye.”
