Description:
Large 14" Popeye Doll, Wood and Composition, Copyright 1935 E. C. Segar began a comic strip in 1919 titled The Thimble Theater with characters Olive Oyl, Castor Oyl, Ham Gravy (Olive's original boyfriend), Hotfoot and others. Ten years later, on January 17, 1929, he introduced a character named Popeye, hired to sail Olive's ship to Dice Island. Popeye was never intended to be a permanent addition to the strip but, as they say, the rest is history. This present item is an incredible 14.5" tall articulated Popeye doll made of composition over wood with a clear and bright "Popeye / Copyright 1935 / KING Features Syn." decal right on the famous sailor's chest. Condition is surprisingly good with some paint chipping here and there and one small bit of the composition missing off the back of the neck which could easily be repaired, if desired. Popeye's famous pipe is present and the head and limbs still move. An excellent early licensed Popeye item, perfect for display in your collection.
