The DerbyBlue 'Pop Eyes' series is a grown-up version of the vintage cartoon, 'Popeye The Sailor Man.' The majority of fans who remember these retro animations from their childhood are now adults, and DerbyBlue playfully draws off of this deduction in his naughty treatment of these illustrations.

By the hand of the artist, this classic cartoon has gone from G-rated to R, portraying a sexualized Olive Oil and a dreamboat Popeye. Some images from the DerbyBlue 'Pop Eyes' series even strip characters down, giving the TV show's old wholesome image a complete adult makeover.
