The resemblance between Brutus (Popeye's villain) and Bud Spencer has always caught our attention.
But, where does the character of BRUTUS come from? Originally this character appears in the strips with the name of Bluto. He was devised to be the villain for a single chapter of his Thimble Theater series. But the antithesis of Popeye, this bearded character was very well received. When Fleischer Studios in 1993 develops the first cartoon series of Popeye where Bluto (later Brutus) is the main enemy of the sailor.
