Popeye Statue in Chester, Illinois

I’m Popeye the Sailor Man,
I’m Popeye the Sailor Man.
I’m strong to the finich
Cause I eats me spinach.
I’m Popeye the Sailor Man.

In 1977 a memorial to the beloved cartoon character Popeye was erected in Chester, Illinois, birthplace of the comic’s creator Elzie C. Segar. The “Home of Popeye” still proudly displays this six-foot, 900 lb. bronze statue of Popeye the Sailor Man in Segar Memorial Park, overlooking the Mississippi River.
