Description


(Fleischer Studios, 1934) Original production cel and background featuring Popeye squaring off against a donkey from Let’s You and Him Fight, showing Popeye wearing boxing gloves and getting kicked in the face. The cel is placed on a hand-painted production background from the same film. Image measures 8 x 4, with overall dimensions of 11.5 x 9.25. The cel has been professionally restored. Fleischer released Let’s You and Him Fight as a theatrical cartoon short, and it was the first cartoon to have the song ‘Stars and Stripes Forever’ playing during Popeye’s spinach fight. This wonderful Popeye setup featuring the cel and background from the same cartoon is one of just ten known to exist at present, and shows a very appealing action scene from an early release of the iconic cartoon.
