Saturday Afternoon Cartoons: Felix the Cat

Saturday Afternoon Cartoons: Felix the Cat
Saturday, February 29!

  • In 1954, Otto Messmer retired from the Felix daily newspaper strips, and his assistant Joe Oriolo (the co-creator of Casper the Friendly Ghost) took over. Oriolo struck a deal with Felix's new owner to begin a new series of Felix cartoons for television.
  • Oriolo gave Felix a more domesticated and pedestrian personality, geared more toward children, and introduced known-around-the-world elements such as Felix's "Magic Bag of Tricks," a satchel that could assume the shape and characteristics of anything Felix wanted, which his antagonists often tried to steal.
  • Felix the Cat has starred in 260 television cartoons and became such a hit in Japan he was given his own anime series!
Produced by Joe Oriolo
