Olive Oyl is a cartoon character created by E. C. Segar in 1919 for his comic strip Thimble Theatre. The strip was later renamed Popeye after the sailor character that became the most popular member of the cast; however, Olive Oyl was the main character for 10 years before Popeye's 1929 appearance.

She wears a red shirt with short sleeves, black skirt with a red line on the bottom and black high heels. She is full of energy, enthusiasm, and the joy of living.
