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.

A pedophile.
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.
