Friday Night Fights--Wile E. Sea hag Style!!

We may have found the secret origin/inspiration for one of our culture's enduring monuments in this week's Friday Night Fights.

We start as the vile Sea Hag has tricked Wimpy into helping her get rid of Popeye (because the Sea Hag ALWAYS tricks Wimpy)... "X" on the ground? A dropping boulder the middle of the desert? Why does this seem so familiar?

Any, the Sea Hag makes the crucial mistake of not providing enough hamburgers for Wimpy:



Spacebooger wonders where Sea Hag left her Acme blueprints...

A villain hoist on her own petard is from Popeye #30 (1954)--which was three years before the Road Runner cartoons debuted!!--as reprinted in Classic Popeye #30 (2015) 

Now is the time for you to go and vote for my fight. Why?!? A cultural discovery of this magnitude deserves your vote!! So go do it!!
