POPEYE RETURNS TO HIS SEAFARIN' WAYS THIS HOLIDAY SEASON
IN THE BRAND-NEW SPECIAL
"POPEYE'S VOYAGE: THE QUEST FOR PAPPY"
FRIDAY, DECEMBER 17, ON FOX
In this new, 3-D, CGI-animated holiday special, the world's favorite spinach-slinging sailor takes to the high seas in a daring trip to rescue the father who abandoned him as a child. Wracked by nightmares that his long-gone Pappy desperately needs him, Popeye sets sail for the Sea of Mystery with his if not unlikely, then certainly un-seaworthy, crew: the loutish Bluto, the lovelorn Olive Oyl, the fearless Swee'Pea and hamburger-loving stowaway Wimpy. Unaware of the dangers ahead, Popeye bravely sets out to reunite his family. As the voyage progresses toward the Sea of Mystery, the Sea Hag's domain, strange and scary things begin to happen. Mists, sirens and serpents attack the intrepid seafarers, but Popeye comes to their rescue on POPEYE'S VOYAGE: THE QUEST FOR PAPPY Friday, Dec. 17 (8:30-9:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX. (SP-0533) (TV-TBA)
Voice Cast: Billy West as Popeye and Pappy; Kathy Bates as the Sea Hag/Siren; Tabitha St. Germain as Olive Oyl and Swee'Pea; Gary Chalk as Bluto; and Sanders Whiting as Wimpy.
Music by: Mark Mothersbaugh (DEVO), who scored the all-new special and updated the classic "Popeye the Sailor Man" theme song.
