    Description

    Popeye (Paramount, 1941). Stock One Sheet (27" X 41") "Happy Birthdaze."
    Elzie Chrisler Segar introduced what would become his most famous creation on January 17, 1929 in his popular comic strip, Thimble Theater. Seeking to hire a boat, Castor Oyl finds a likely looking gob standing on a pier. "Hey there! Are you a sailor?" Castor asks. The squinty-eyed seaman, his arms tattooed with anchors, candidly replies, "Ja think I'm a cowboy?" Thus, the comic reading public first met Popeye the Sailor, who would quickly take over Thimble Theater and go on to headline his own long-running strip. In 1933, Popeye made his first animated appearance in a Betty Boop cartoon, and was soon starring in his own shorts, produced by Fleischer Studios. Fleischer was absorbed by Paramount in 1939, and the Popeye series continued until 1957, in which year the catalog of cartoons began appearing on TV, where they've been seen ever since. Heritage presents this early Popeye stock poster, which bears both the Fleischer Studios and Paramount names. Light signs of handling include edge wear, wrinkling, pinholes in the background, fold separations, smudging, and a light stain that runs from the top edge to the bottom edge. Folded, Fine+.
