Movie Reviews

The Wonderful, Wonderful Cat...
Mark Savary | Seattle, WA | 03/20/2002

"I have to agree with my fellow reviewers here that "The Twisted Tales of Felix the Cat" tried very, very hard. Best of all, Felix's personality seems to be more or less intact, and there are some pretty weird, surreal things going on.However, it just doesn't seem to gel quite right. The cartoons are an uncomfortable blend of 1920's and 1990's cartoon styles. In black and white it may have worked, or at least looked better, but this is full-color 1990's "limited" animation. This more modern type of animation gives a sort of cheap, "plastic" look to some of the drawings which make the 1920's stylings look out of place.Overall, I'm not the least bit sorry I bought this, but the hard-core Felix fan may be a wee bit disappointed with this retro effort. I think I would have been happier if at least the old Felix theme song had been included, or more classic Felix foes were on hand. Peking Duck and his henchmen are pretty cool, though, and the whole thing was a pretty good effort to bring Felix back to Saturday Morning cartoons."
Great stuff

"no one likes to take chances on new things and unfortunately for this cartoon, it only ran for i think 2 years. this dvd is a nice look back at it, with some of the best episodes. its very nicely animated, a 30's 40's look animation with a nice soundtrack put in by the Club Foot Orchestra. The music is very retro and cool, very much like the cartoons of the 30's and 40's had in thier days. Yes, these are new cartoons made in the 1990's but they look so cool in the old style animation type drawings. Very surreal, i mean extremely surreal cartoons. they are extremely enjoyable. I wish they would have released the whole first season on dvd, and released a soundtrack cd. Youll like these felix cartoons if youre a fan, or just admire the early type of animation which i still think is the best."
Felix makes a bizarre, surreal comback in the mid-90's.

"This is a great DVD. It has 10 episodes (11 if you count the 2 parter) of the truely-twisted 1995-96 tv series by Film Roman Inc. Picture quality is good, and the menus are cool. Episodes included are: The Petrified Cheese, Manhattan Triangle, Now Playing Felix, Jailhouse Shock, The Sludge Kings Parts 1 & 2, Mars Needs Felix, Space Time Twister, Guardian Idiot, Step Right Up, and Don't String Me Along. A great deal for the price... a DVD that should belong in every toon-addicts collection!"
Wow...

""The Twisted Tales of Felix the Cat" was easily one of the high points of late 90s animation on network TV for me. Incredibly surreal, I'd wake up *very* early on a Saturday or Sunday morning, specifically to watch this show. For the next half hour, I'd just stare at the TV, bleary-eyed, amazed at the trippiness of the cartoon. I was quite upset when it was taken off the air. Talking sausages with moustaches, freaky flying eyeballs, lots of Magic Bag tricks and much more on this disc - I could watch this show every day and not get tired of it. Buy this disc if you love surreal, humorous animation. You won't regret it - it's a great price, too!"
