    Blow Me Down! and Sock-A-Bye, Baby Popeye and Olive Oyl Animation Drawings (Max Fleischer, 1933-34). In 1933 Blow Me Down! became the second release in the Fleischer Studios Popeye the Sailor series of theatrical cartoons. Sock-a-Bye, Baby was the sixth cartoon released in the series on 1/19/34. From these two episodes we have three fantastic animation drawings housed in one frame. In this lot are two Popeye drawings from Sock-a-Bye, Baby, one of which shows Popeye eating his spinach, and a third piece features Olive Oyl from Blow Me Down! The images of Popeye measure 5" tall while Olive Oyl measures 3.5". The artwork was rendered in graphite on 12 field, 3-peghole animation paper. The artwork is in a frame of 41" x 15.5" under Plexiglas with mat openings of 10.5" x 8". Frame sold as-is. These are superb animation drawings! Screen grab copies are affixed to the back of the frame. Fine condition.
