Popeye Carnival Chalk Figure

Popeye was first introduced in E. C. Segar's Thimble Theatre comic strip in 1929. Within a year the muscled, spinach eating sailor became the most popular character in the strip. Over 400 animated shorts were made for the movies and television. Numerous Popeye promotional items have been produced over the years as well as items featuring the other characters in the strip such as Olive Oyl, Wimpy, Swee'pea, and Jeep. This 15.5" chalk figure was most certainly a carnival prize. It probably dates from the 1930's. It has its original red, yellow, black and blue paint. There is a small area of paint loss on the left arm and some minor crazing on the neck. On the whole he is in remarkably good condition for a toy of this age. There are no marks.
