He wrote back!

He sent me a very nice (hand written) note saying he enjoyed doing the Popeye shows as much as we loved watchng them. And he included a drawing of Popeye at the bottom. I later mentioned this to several friends and apparently he's known for doing this. What a wonderful man.

I framed the letter and it's hanging in a place of honor in my home.
Tom Hatten was a great reason to get up very early on Saturday mornings. Had the great black and white Popeye toons, and drew sketches in between.
Made perfect sense to us, living next to the ocean, and near Marineland (the Admiral Risty is stiil open, for anybody who remembers that place, near the lighthouse). Kept with the nautical theme.
