Brutus made his first appearance in the Popeye series in 1960 even though Popeye’s original enemy Bluto was around way before that. This was back when the comic books were the only way to catch Popeye and the gang! Brutus and Bluto were both big and tough guys, but they never really stood a chance against the one and only Popeye the Sailor Man!
Get the look of the bully Brutus with a Muscle Man Shirt, a Navy Blue Yacht Captain Hat, a set of Gnarly Teeth, a Short-Sleeve Jersey Polo, Web Belt, Flat Front Pants, Men’s Pier Boots, a Short Boxed Beard, and a Standard Spinach Can Koozie.

We all love Popeye the Sailor Man, but where Popeye goes his enemies follow! Popeye’s original nemesis was the big, burly, Bluto! For years the two didn’t agree on anything and even tangled up a few times, but later in the comics and in the Popeye cartoons, a new nemesis showed up—Brutus. He was the new guy on the block, but he sure seemed awfully familiar…
Brutus and Bluto never appeared at the same time in the adventures of Popeye (until the later years), so there was some confusion on how one left and the other showed up. The writers later gave the explanation that the two were twins, and that Bluto was actually the evil one out of the two—even though Brutus wasn’t the nicest guy either! Whichever character decided to show up, we loved them both as enemies, but always knew Popeye could take either one who wanted to stand up against him!
