Ask Popeye’s Lucky Jeep

The game includes a cut-out of the “Popeye” character Eugene the Jeep and a double-sided game disk. Eugene stands on the disk which can be spun around by attaching it to a wooden handle.

The cut-out has joints at the top of the legs so that Eugene can stand up or bend over forwards. Once the disc is spinning, the player pushes Eugene so that he bends forwards and stops the disk with his nose.

The disk has two sides, allowing two different games to be played. On one side, the disk is divided into 12 sections, each inscribed with a phrase that answers a questions (such as “YES”, “NO”, “LIKELY”, “DEPENDS” etc.). The aim of the game is to ask a question then see what answer Eugene gives by seeing where his nose stops the disk.

On the other side, there are depictions of six characters from the “Popeye” cartoon, each worth a different number of points: Popeye (200 points), Alice the Goon (50 points), Poopdeck Pappy (100 points), Toar (75 points), Olive Oyl (150 points) and Wimpy (25 points).

The box features depictions of Popeye playing the game. The back and sides of the box has instructions on how to play the game.
Eugene the Jeep first appeared in the “Popeye” comic strip in the 1930s as the pet of Popeye’s girlfriend Olive Oyl. It is not known what sort of animal he is, and the only word he says is “Jeep”.
