Daithi BS: Happy Birthday, Popeye!!! ....... (25) RE: BS: Happy Birthday, Popeye!!! ....... 22 Jan 04

At the risk of injecting a note of sanity (or at least distraction)into these highly enjoyable reminiscences, can I ask you Popeye experts about the Jeep character?
I recall seeing the little dog-like creature who could walk through walls, turn invisible etc in early Popeye cartoons on TV as a boy. I also understand that the usual explanation for the Chrysler vehicle being called a "Jeep" is after "GP" for General Purpose vehicle, an epithet allegedly used to refer to the original Willys vehicle. Surely it's tempting to think that the car was actually named after Popeye's jeep - something that could go anywhere? Waddya think?
