    E. C. Segar Thimble Theater starring Popeye Daily Comic Strip Original Art dated 11-7-33 (King Features Syndicate, 1933). This strip is so awesome that it might give you "Bonky of the Konky" also! Swee'Pea was only introduced into the strip earlier this same year, so this is a very early appearance for the child. The strip is produced in ink over graphite, on Bristol board, with an image area of 20.5" x 4.5". It is personalized with a message handwritten on the last panel that reads "I kin do this, Billy Prenosil, because I eat me spinach." The strip is signed in the last panel. Tanning with some minor stains, the strip has been folded vertically through panel #4 in the past. It is currently matted to 24.75" x 8.75". In Very Good condition. A tear-sheet of the printed comic strip is included.
