Popeye, indoors.

Popeye Statue - 1987 Model (Closed)

Field review by the editors.

Alma, Arkansas

The company town for Popeye Brand Spinach features a Popeye statue on the town's main street, near a school. Alma, which calls itself "Spinach Capital of the World," holds a spinach festival every April.

The 8-ft. tall fiberglass-over-paper mache statue was made in 1987 (a 2007 upgraded version of Popeye stands elsewhere in town). He sports a distorted Todd Browning's Freaks- meets -Hellraiser head. He used to stand outside, sheltered in a wooden alcove, but can lately be found freshly painted and in a gift shop on Fayetteville Avenue (as of Oct. 2014, the gift shop was closed, whereabouts of statue unknown).
