    Description

    Popeye and Betty Boop "Today's Special" Signed Limited Edition Cel, #172/200 (King Features Syndicate/ Fleischer Studios, 1999). Throughout the 1990s, King Features released a series of hand-inked, hand painted limited edition cels featuring the classic characters once animated by the Fleischer Studios. These were based upon original art by legendary Fleischer animator Myron Waldman (1908-2006), who then hand-signed each piece. This cel is titled "Today's Special..." and features perennial favorites, Popeye, Betty Boop, and Pudgy! Popeye is playing the part of "Au garcon" in a Parisian café and is busy taking Betty's lunch order. Betty (and Pudgy!) are both dressed the part as café-goers in their matching scarves and berets. Recalling effects work done on Disney's Snow White, rouge has been hand-applied to Miss Boop's cheeks! Two official seals, one from Fleischer, one from King Features, have been placed in both bottom corners. 12 field cel is numbered 172/200 and signed by Mr. Waldman in the bottom right. Cel has been placed over a print background for display purposes. COA from King Features and Toon Art, Inc. is included. In Fine condition.
