An Original Vintage Theatrical Movie Standee (measures 34" x 55" [86 x 140 cm]) (Learn More)

Popeye is the spinach eating super strong sailor character created by Elzie Crisler Segar (E.C. Segar) in 1929 in his newspaper comic strip called "Thimble Theatre" (later changed to "Popeye the Sailor"). He first appeared on screen in a 1933 Max Fleischer Betty Boop cartoon aptly titled "Popeye the Sailor", and he was an instant hit, and over the years, he appeared in hundreds of theatrical and television animated cartoons, comic strips, and movies. He was portrayed by Robin Williams in the 1980 movie Popeye. Those who only know the character from the cartoons might think he was illiterate and did little except fight Bluto (later named "Brutus"), but actually, in the wonderful comic strip in the 1930s, he was very philosophical and the strip had many intricate story lines, with very little fighting!

Important Added Info:

Note that this item needs to be shipped in an oversized flat package. Some of these items can ONLY be sent in flat packages, and could not possibly be rolled into a tube. On some of them (for example f it is a size that might ordinarily be rolled in a tube, like a half-sheet), the reason it is in this auction is specifically because we feel it either CAN'T be rolled or because we feel it would be a mistake to roll it, because it might well damage the item. In the case of the few items that could be rolled, we will roll the item in a tube if the new owner insists, but only if they accept that they can't return the item if it is damaged from being rolled. So please bear in mind that this item must be sent in a LARGE flat package (the size of the package will depend on the size of the item), and bear this added expense in mind before placing a bid on it.

Condition: good to very good. There are some creases in parts of the standee and there is some wear along the folds.
