Behind the Scenes – Popeye’s Cartoon Club


As everyone knows King Features Syndicate is celebrating the 90th year of Popeye and the 100th year of Thimble Theatre by producing the new comic strip Popeye’s Cartoon Club.

The March 17, 2019 edition (below) was by cartoonist Tom Neely.

Tom has treated us with the original art for his installment.

And quite a treat it is!

Check out what has been trimmed to fit the comic strip format,
maybe they will be collected in a book later (Christmas?!) and from the original art. We can hope.


Here’s the original painted pages for the Popeye’s Cartoon Club comic strip – published by and today as part of Popeye’s 90th birthday! This piece is huge – 24×36” ink and watercolor on paper.
