I remember being told it wasn't a holy day of obligation but we always went.
Yeah, church was awful at Easter. At least the mass at Christmas was at midnight and you knew you were getting presents after! But Easter, jaysus a wet miserable time of year with loads of boring masses (or church services) that went on for hours. Horrendous. I still hate Easter to this day due to all the ****e church things we had to go to.

I think the reason Popeye was shown so often on RTE is because the Popeye character is in the public domain. This meant that anyone can show a Popeye cartoon or even come up with their own Popeye cartoon without fear of paying royalties or being sued.

I also remember a cartoon on RTE called Walter Kitty about a cat who had crazy adventures. I think it came from Canada.

Also, I remember Rolf Harris and Jim'l fix it on Saturday evenings. I shudder to think about it now but I used to love watching those 2 creeps when I was a kid :(
No. Popeye was still under copyright at the time. Copyright in Europe expired in 2009 and protected in the US until 2024.

Rte more likely bought them in as they were old and cheap.
