(Fleischer Studios, 1941) Original production cel and production background featuring Popeye from Popeye Meets Rip Van Winkle. The cel is placed on a non-matching hand-painted production background done by Erich Schenk. Black and white image of Popeye lifting up the beard of Rip Van Winkle measures 6 x 5, with overall dimensions of 17 x 13. Tack holes to borders of background, scattered toning and soiling to background, as well as a few small notations, otherwise fine condition. Cel is from the beginning scene on the street where Rip Van Winkle flops out of a bed that is being loaded into a moving truck after his eviction for not paying rent for 20 years. Finding him laying on the street, Popeye lifts the old man’s beard to hear him snore and comically says ‘I guess he’s just restin’ soes he won’ts get tired.’ Popeye spends the rest of the short reacting to Van Winkle’s sleep walking antics. Black and white cels of Popeye are quite scarce, even more so with a hand-painted background.
