Signed and numbered b/w 12x10 drawing of Popeye, rescuing his girl Olive Oyl
from a speeding train as only he can, in a 20x18 grey matte and black frame.
This drawing was made to look like an animation cel. Waldman was head animator
at Fleischer Studios and worked on the Popeye animated cartoons.
Original art signed "Myron Waldman". B/w, 11¾x9¾ image in 20x18 grey
matte and black frame. No. 114 in a 250-piece series. King Features imprint in
gold in lower left corner. Waldman drew this art on a clear sheet of
plastic and added a separate background behind the drawing. He apparently
took pains to make this art look like an animation cel, although it doesn't
appear to have been used in any Popeye cartoons. Waldman (1908-2006, born in
Brooklyn, New York) was an animator on over 110 cartoons, most of them
shorts for Fleischer Studios and its successor, Famous Studios. Waldman was
employed as an inker at Fleischer Studios in 1930 after graduating from the
Pratt Institute in Utica, New York. He was head animator by 1934. Waldman
worked on many of Fleischer Studio's most famous characters, including Betty
Boop, Popeye, Raggedy Ann and the animated adaptations of Superman and
Gulliver's Travels, as well as two Oscar nominated shorts,
Educated Fish (1937) and Hunky and Spunky (1938). He left
Famous Studios, where he worked on Casper the Friendly Ghost, in 1958 and
joined Hal Seeger Produtions in 1958, where he worked until retiring in 1968. He
also published a syndicated comic strip, Happy the Humbug, as well as
an illustrated novel, Eve: A Pictorial Love Story (1943) that was a
precursor for today's graphic novels. Not framed in Gallery of History style.
Frame is lightly scuffed. Art is slightly rippled. Otherwise in fine
