FACT OF THE DAY: Olive Oyl predates Popeye. She was the main character in E.C. Segar’s comic strip Thimble Theatre, which debuted in 1919 and featured her boyfriend Harold Hamgravy. Popeye first appeared in a brief role in 1920, but after a positive reader response, Segar made him Olive Oyl’s boyfriend and eventually the main character.
