    Description

    Popeye "Wimpy's Café" Signed Cel, Studio Proof #10/25 (King Features, 1991).
    In the early 90s, King Features released a series of hand-inked, hand painted limited edition cels featuring the Popeye cast, based on original art created by longtime Fleischer animator, Myron Waldman (1906 - 2008). Mr. Waldman then personally signed each piece. Fantastic, full-body images of Olive Oyl, Popeye, and Wimpy! Waitress Olive (always thinking she is more elegant than she actually is) holds a rose in her mouth and a comb in her hair, fancies herself a Spanish senorita, as she dances a jig with Popeye. Wimpy, oblivious, chows down on a burger - presumably the first of many. This cel features Waldman's signature in gold ink near the bottom right corner. It is numbered "SP 10/25" near the bottom left corner. Very minor paint loss near the toe of Popeye's right shoe; minor ink loss in some outlined areas throughout. 12 field cel has been placed over a print background for display purposes. COA from King Features included. In Fine condition.
