The erstwhile father of the comic strip character Popeye the Sailor. Popeye, who orginally was parentless, first appeared as a minor character in cartoonist Elzie Crisler Segar's comic strip "Thimble Theatre" on January 17, 1929. Poopdeck Pappy, Popeye's long-lost, woman-hating father, himself did not come into existence until the Popeye the Sailor animated film short "Goonland" (1938), created by Max Fleischer.
An elderly homosexual male.
Did you read in the paper that Oscar's father was arrested down at the pool hall soliciting high school students? I swear the old fuck has degenerated into a real Poopdeck Pappy.
