    Description

    Organ Grinder's Swing Popeye and Wimpy Production Cel with Production Background (Max Fleischer, 1937). An extremely rare, hand-inked, hand-painted, black and white production cel of Popeye, with Wimpy and his organ-grinder monkey. This is from the Dave Fleischer-directed short that was released on 2/19/37. The cel appears at about the 3:40 mark in the short. This cel is on a Fleischer Studios hand-painted black and white production background for an unknown studio short, that works well with the cel. The images are approximately 3", and the background is 11" x 9". There is slight paint separation/loss in Popeye's left arm. Very Good condition.
