    Popeye "Olive's Sweepstakes Ticket" Publicity Illustration (Max Fleischer, 1941). This short was directed by Dave Fleischer and released on 3/7/41. Popeye and Olive Oyl keep trying to catch a runaway sweepstakes ticket. This is a RARE studio publicity illustration in ink with graphite and blue pencil highlights. It has a penciled-in title crossed out on top and a 1929 King Features Syndicate notice inked by hand in the lower right corner. This looks to have been a publication piece as well. It is hand-signed "To Alan (A Scene From a Popeye Picture) Hal Seeger." Mr. Seeger (1917 - 2005) was an animator at Fleischer Studios in the 1940s. He would later start his own studio and produce Milton the Monster among other shows. Matted with an opening of 7" x 10" and framed with glass for an overall size of 14.5" x 16.5". Fine condition.
