Our Sailor Friends

An article in Richmond recently reminded me about Sailor Bob, a character who hosted a kids show in Richmond. In Norfolk Mac Macmanus aka Poopdeck Pappy hosted the afternoon Popeye show.

  1. Ahhh. Now you got me thinkin’ about poopdecks.

  2. I was trying to draw the distinction between the inland Richmond which had no real understanding of sailors and the port town Norfolk. Though Norfolk had its share of sailors, we also had a large contingent of the “Old Salt” types. This later type belonging to a more working class milieu.

    Poopdeck Pappy had by far the better name, guaranteed to charm the chillen’.

    But could he draw cartoons in real time?
