First Appearance Thimble Theatre (Popeye's Life Story)



Whaler Joe was Popeye's guardian, having raised the orphan since he was 4 years of age and helped to start him off on the path of the sailor.

Character history

Creation and development in Thimble Theatre

Whaler Joe was created by E. C. Segar in March 1931 for a King Features Syndicate series of promotional spots called Popeye's Life Story, which contained details about Popeye's life growing up and all his personal traits. Whaler Joe himself was introduced as the orphan Popeye's guardian.

Due to the obscurity and rarity of Popeye's Life Story, Whaler Joe is not very well known by the populace, with his appearances and mentions in other media being rare or nonexistent.

Whaler Joe's physical appearance was first shown in Popeye's Cartoon Club in 2020.
