The first episode of Popeye the Sailor made its debut in 1933

The lot is one of only 10 surviving cels from the episode, which sees Popeye and Bluto square off in a boxing match, and is among the finest examples dating to the show's early years.

The series premiered in theatres for Paramount Pictures in 1933 and quickly became hugely popular.

We have this amazing signed copy of Walt Disney's America, featuring signatures from 12 of the company's most important animators and voice artists.
