    Popeye the Sailor Man Production Cel Setup (Famous Studios, c. 1940s-50s). "I yam what I yam, and that's all that I yam" say Popeye the Sailor Man! Toot Toot! Here's a rare hand-inked, hand-painted production cel of Popeye with a rope tied around his ankle. It's a great 5" full-figure pose, complete with Popeye's pipe. The cel is placed on an unknown hand-painted production background of a ship, produced around the same time period. It really works well with the Popeye cel, and makes for a beautiful setup. Matted with an opening of 14.5" x 10.5", and framed with glass. Fine condition.
