In the Washington, D.C. viewing area, Lee Reynolds ("Grandpa" of WTTG-TV channel 5's 'Grandpa's Place') began hosting 'The Captain Tugg's Show' on WTTG in the late 1950's.

Sporting a beard, captain's cap, turtleneck sweater and working from inside of the pilot's room of a tugboat, "Capt. Tugg" entertained viewers in framing segments between the cartoons.

In 1964, the show underwent a title changed to 'Capt. Lee's Pleasure Cruise' then later became 'Capt. Lee and his Mates.'

KRON TV in San Francisco, CA aired 'The Skipper Bruce Sedley Show.' Ventriloquist and TV personality Bruce Sedley's "Skipper Bruce" MC'd his show from the late 1950's until the early 1960's; then helmed 'The Sir Bruce Sedley Show' on KTVU where he hosted reruns of The Three Stooges films.

Entertainer and radio/TV broadcaster Hal Fryer donned a captain's outfit as he entertained the kids of Youngstown, Ohio on 'The Captain Hal Fryer Show' on WFMJ TV channel 21.
Mr. Fryer eventually jumped ship and headed for Indianapolis, Indiana where he gained more success as "Harlow Hickenlooper" on 'The Harlow Hickenlooper Show' on WFMB TV channel 6; there he hosted the cinematic antics of The Three Stooges.

In the Dallas/Fort Worth, TX viewing area, KFJZ (now known as KVTV) TV channel 11 had a fellow named George Nolan playing "Capt. Swabby" with a puppeteer named Dick Clayton who worked with two mud turtle puppets, "Mickey" and "Michelle."

Sioux Falls, S.D. weatherman David Dedrick began a long assignment during the late 1950's as futuristic superhero "Captain 11" on KELO channel 11. He retired from the series in late December of 1996. Captain 11 entertained a studio audience of kids between reruns of Popeye cartoons but switched to the Hanna-Barbera cartoon package in the late-1960's.

My friend Mr. Rex Trailer reran the Popeye movie cartoons on his Boomtown show on WBZ TV in the Boston, Ma. viewing area.

The films were screened on the Popeye Playhouse Show weekday evenings with local TV personality "Skipper Al" (no known last name) was the series' host on WFGA TV Channel 12 in Jacksonville, Fla.


WCPO Popeye Show- Hal Erickson writes: In 1960, WCPO acquired the new King Features package of made-for-TV POPEYE cartoons for a daily Bob Shreve series, with Shreve sitting in a makeshift canoe, trading wisecracks with a stuffed eagle named "Bird-uh." This show was WAY over the kid's heads, with Shreve telling risque jokes, doing Perry Como and Lawrence Welk imitations, and making insulting remarks about the cartoons.

Skipper RyleMeanwhile, the original theatrical POPEYES were being shown on rival station WKRC. In the morning, the station featured an hour-long kid's show, POPEYE & BILLY (the actual name of the host escapes me).

In the afternoon, Popeye appeared on THE SKIPPER RYLE SHOW, hosted by WKRC announcer Glenn Ryle, who did his show from a set resembling the control room of an old-fashioned riverboat.

Popeye ShowTV Popeye hostOn Sundays, Skipper Ryle emceed a two-hour audience-participation show, with games, stories and cartoons. I remember that Ryle was kind of cranky and on occasion stopped the show to chew out a particularly unruly kid.

Popeye and Pals on WXON in Detroit from 1989.

The Officer Don Popeye Club was on WSB TV Channel 2 in the Atlanta, Ga. viewing area.

The Popeye Show from New Orleans circa 1988 with host Matt Borel.
