Found Things: Wilco wins the heart of Olive Oyl in the first Popeye cartoon in 30 years for Wilcos “Dawned on me”

It was my delight to find this (a little late to the party I know, as it was released a few months ago) but combining some delicious childhood nostagia with the brilliant Wilco… could a video get any better than this?

The band partnered with King Features to create the first hand-drawn Popeye cartoon in more than 30 years. In the video, a cartooned Tweedy strums his way into the heart of the lovely Olive Oyl. Despite Popeye and his nemesis Bluto’s best efforts, he gets the girl, and dancing by all follows. Hooray… A treat for your eyes and ears!

Happy Thursday
