The Dk'tronics newsletter, kindly scanned and made available here by Mark R. Jones, sheds some interesting light on the Popeye that wasn't. It was described as a "fast action/strategy game" where Popeye and Wimpy had to build and provide with furniture a house, while keeping an eye on Swee' Pea and avoiding or fighting Bluto. The programmers were six, of which one "cracked under the strain and mysteriously disappeared", supposedly "heading for Scotland".
