    Popeye and Nephews "Gone Fishing" Signed Limited Edition Cel, #41/250 (King Features Syndicate/Fleischer, 1991). What's wrong with this picture? (Hint: Popeye has four nephews!) Since they're all identical, it's anyone's guess as to who's been left ashore! 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 piece is called "Gone Fishing", and features three of Popeye's four nephews and the intrepid sailor himself putting out to sea in a rowboat. The kids are so eager to set sail that they've left Popeye precariously balanced between the boat and the pier! The lookout is carrying a spyglass, the middle nephew mans the oars, and the last baits the line: all three are oblivious to their poor uncle, about to take the plunge - with the picnic basket! Large image area on cel measures 10" across. Mr. Waldman's signature in gold ink is at bottom right corner. 12 field cel is numbered 41/250. COA included. Cel is placed over a print background for display purposes. In Fine condition.
