Apparently, no one can really tell the difference between Popeye the Sailor Man and Popeye’s the fast-food restaurant anymore.
One example took place in an episode of ‘Family Feud Canada,’ when both teams where at “Sudden Death.” This is where the host had to ask the question: “Name Popeye’s Favorite Food…”
From WKYC 3News Cleveland:
With all of the recent craze over the Popeyes chicken sandwich, (and yes Canada has Popeyes) contestant Eve Dubois immediately hit the buzzer and confidently yelled “chicken!” But, the question referred to the classic cartoon character Popeye the Sailor. His favorite food, as we all remember, was spinach.
Here’s the video of the moment below:
The contestant who answered really thought she had the correct answer and shimmied around the podium too. The other contestant answered correctly, and got the extra points.
Popeye’s the restaurant got its start in America back in 1972, and made its way in Canada in 1984. ‘Family Feud,’ meanwhile, also started in America a few years later in 1976, before making its way global. Popeye, the cartoon, got his start, in a comic strip in 1929.
