The actual feature billing of this story is: "Popeye as a Little Boy". While Popeye and Wimpy are indeed portrayed (if awkwardly) as boys, the Sea Hag looks exactly the same as always, indicating that (as a witch) she ages at a different rate. Future characterizations are adhered-to, as Popeye has his first sea adventure (though without an assist from spinach) and, in the final panel, Wimpy develops a taste for hamburgers.
