Goon, originally the servant of the evil Sea Hag in the Popeye comic strip. Youthful readers were terrified by this gruesome specter whom Popeye eventually defeated in combat. She later turned up on Popeye's doorstep wearing a little hat and flowered dress, carrying a purse. Popeye took her in and I believe she was Swee'pea's nursemaid for a time.
