Synopsis:
Emerging from humble beginnings back in 1919 with his debut in Feline Follies, 'Felix the Cat' continues to mesmerize and amuse audiences today. His success is due in large part to his ties to the past, representing for many a certain nostalgic longing for a bygone era. As a model for testing, Felix was the first image ever broadcast on television. A timeless symbol of Americana with a refreshing graphic style, Felix has weathered the years, moving from short films, to print, to television. This video contains some classic cartoons from the early career of this curious and playful cat created by Otto Messmer for The Pat Sullivan studio.
With some of the most outrageous and remarkable animation of the early era of cinema, this 'Felix the Cat' video is truly a piece of animation history.
