Overview

Synopsis

Felix Saves the Day
Felix the Cat and his friend Willie are practicing for the big baseball game against the Tar Heels, an all-black baseball team when Felix's line-drive hits a policeman in the head with the baseball. Felix escapes, but the policeman chases Willie up to the top of a high building. The policeman calls for help, and a flying policeman snatches Willie and puts him in jail. When the game starts and Felix's team is losing, he cannot get Willie out of jail, so he hits the baseball high up into the air where it hits the Greek god Jupiter. Jupiter gets mad and causes it to rain, which causes the game to be cancelled. Felix had been appearing in a series of Paramount cartoon shorts, but Paramount later cancelled his contract. This was the first Felix cartoon for distributor Margaret Winkler, who would handle his films for four years. This film has live-action shots of cars, trains, and baseball spectators intercut with the animation. ~ Bruce Calvert, Rovi

Felix in Hollywood
This typical Felix the Cat cartoon is interesting because of the cartoon appearances of some 1920's Hollywood stars. Felix's master is an out-of-work actor who needs to go to Hollywood to get a job. He orders Felix to get them some money to pay for the trip. Felix spies a shoe store that is going out of business. Felix tells the owner that he will help him with his business. He chews a big wad of gum and spits out little pieces of it all over the street. People everywhere step in the gum, and their shoes are stuck to the street. They swarm over to the shoe store, and buy every pair of shoes there. The owner of the store pays Felix $500. Felix's master will not let him make the trip to Hollywood, but Felix pretends to be a suitcase and makes the trip anyway. He tries to get an acting job at a studio, and meets Hollywood personalities like Ben Turpin, Will Hays, Charlie Chaplin, Douglas Fairbanks, and Cecil B. DeMille. ~ Bruce Calvert, Rovi

Comicalamities
This Felix the Cat cartoon is done in the style of the contemporary Koko the Clown cartoons. An animator's hand draws Felix but forgets to draw his tail and color him black. Felix gets the hand to draw his tail but must become inventive to get his color. He finds a female cat that is crying because her boyfriend cat has left her. The girl cat is ugly, so Felix gets an eraser, and erases her face, redrawing her with a beautiful face and making her a dress from a flower. She wants some pearls, so Felix makes a scary trip under the sea to fetch her a necklace. Next she wants a fur coat, so Felix must retrieve one from a live bear. She is still not happy, so Felix gives up. In this imaginative cartoon, the hand of the animator (actually a photograph of one) interacts with the characters and changes the course of the story. This cartoon was drawn with paper frames instead of clear cells. When Felix gets mad at the girl cat, he literally rips her out of the movie! ~ Bruce Calvert, Rovi

Felix Woos Whoopee
Felix the Cat has fun at a party at the Whoopee Club until the early hours of the morning. At home, his wife paces the floor while carrying a rolling pin. When Felix finally leaves at 3:30 a.m., he is so drunk that he sees the buildings sway with the music, and lamp posts and cars turn into strange creatures. When he gets home, Mrs. Cat has a surprise for him. This film does have music and sound effects, but the characters do not dance to the music or talk as in the Disney Mickey Mouse cartoons that were released at the same time. After 1930, there would be no more Felix the Cat cartoons for five years, while Mickey became a worldwide star. ~ Bruce Calvert, Rovi

Futuritzy
Felix the Cat has his fortune told by a gypsy, but the future is so scary that he runs away in terror. Later, he pays an astrologer to look into the future, and the astrologer tells Felix that he will save a rich man's life. The man will fly Felix to his penthouse apartment where he will give Felix plenty to eat, a lot of money and where Felix will be able to marry his cat girlfriend. Felix is delighted with this prediction. Unfortunately, his life quickly becomes one disaster after another. This silent cartoon was re-issued in the early 1930's with overdone sound effects. ~ Bruce Calvert, Rovi

Feline Follies
This film is the very first Felix the Cat film, although the cat is called Master Tom in this cartoon. Master Tom is attracted by the meow of Miss Kitty White and arranges for a date. He serenades her with his banjo, although his human neighbors don't appreciate his music, and he has another date with her the next night. Unfortunately, the mice at his house notice his absence, and they throw a big party and eat and drink everything in the house. As Tom sleeps after his big date, his owner finds the big mess and assumes that Tom was the cause of it, and Tom is banished from the house. He goes to visit Miss Kitty and discovers that he is the father of a large litter of kittens. Felix the Cat was as big a movie star as any human in the 1920's. Movie tie-in merchandise such as Felix comic books, clocks, and dolls were popular items. Although Pat Sullivan is credited as the director of every Felix cartoon, he really only produced them. Otto Messmer created Felix/Master Tom and directed all of the Felix cartoons. This film appeared as part of Paramount Magazine, which was a collection of short films that was shown before the feature film. Felix's personality is already set as a strongly independent cat who rarely walks on all four feet. He uses his body and anything else he can find to get himself out of a jam. When he needs some transportation, he plays some notes on his banjo and grabs the notes out of the air. Then he fashions them into a pair of scooters for the cats to ride. ~ Bruce Calvert, Rovi

Felix Dopes it Out
Felix the Cat watches a man with a big red nose who has a difficult life. People make fun of the man, and his girlfriend will not marry him because of his ugly nose. When the man attempts to kill himself, Felix stops him and tells him that there is a cure for a red nose. The king of Bora, Bora has the cure, and Felix agrees to find it. With a washtub as a boat and an old shirt as a sail, Felix floats to the South Seas. Unfortunately, the natives would rather eat cats that be friendly, but Felix is able to sneak the cure out of the king's safe without being caught. This cartoon is not as good as the usual Felix cartoon, mainly because of the lack of gags. ~ Bruce Calvert, Rovi
