    Popeye the Sailor Swee'Pea Publicity/ Color Model Cel (United Artists/King Features, c. 1960s). In the animated Popeye cartoons produced by Max Fleischer and later by Famous Studios, Swee'Pea was portrayed as being in the care of Olive Oyl. In the King Features cartoons of the early 1960s, it is implied that Swee'Pea is Popeye's nephew. Offered in this lot is one of the largest Swee'Pea publicity cels that we have seen! Swee'Pea measures 9" tall, hand-painted on 15" acetate. Publicity artwork is often used for press kits and advertising or can be used for consumer products like toys, clothing designs, books, and calendars. This adorable image is in Very Good condition.
