Cartoon: Felix in Hollywood


Welcome to the past.

A very special edition of Felix the Cat. 

Featuring cameos from various stars of the silver screen. Charlie Chaplin anyone?

Take a trip to old Hollywood with this blast from the past.

Most historians believe Otto Messmer created Felix the Cat in 1919.

Pat Sullivan, who owned the animation studio, has also claimed credit for the name and character design.

Joe Oriolo, Messmer’s former assistant, reinvented the character in the 1950’s into the version we know today.

Uh oh.

Felix’s early popularity on screen was boosted by his appearance in a syndicated comic strip. 

 

The character was loosely based on Charlie Chaplin’s famous “Little Tramp” character. 

 

Felix the Cat was also the very first image ever transmitted on a television signal.
