    Popeye and Wimpy - Canada Dry Television Commercial Production Cel and Custom Background (c. 1970s). Popeye stops by Wimpy's café for a cold bottle of ginger ale, in this vintage hand-inked, hand-painted production cel setup. The cels are placed over a hand-drawn line art image of the café interior; although we have not found the commercial on YouTube, we don't believe this to be the actual Key Master production background. Popeye and Wimpy are 6" and 3.75"; the Canada Dry bottle is pasted in position. The setup is matted with an opening size of 9.5" x 7.5", and framed with glass for an overall size of 14.5" x 11.5". Fine condition.
