This is a story from Popeye, the original series published by Dell in 1948. The series was later renamed to Popeye the Sailor as it continued with other publishers. It has also been reprinted in other comic books by other publishers since then.
Popeye is sitting at home reading the newspaper when he hears Swee'Pea banging on something out in the yard. Curious, the sailor gets up and walks over to the window. Swee'Pea and one of his friends have hand tools and lumber working away, so Popeye asks them what they are building. Swee'Pea tells him they are building the world's largest kite. Popeye just laughs and goes back to reading his paper.
A short time later, Swee'Pea is in the house upset, so Popeye asks him what is wrong. Swee'Pea says they cannot use their kite because it is so big they keep flying off the ground. Popeye just suggests they tie it to the house and laughs some more. A little while later, Popeye is looking out of the window but he is not laughing this time because the kite is lifting the house off the ground.
