Movie Reviews

Felix the cat video
C. Webb | Worcester MA | 01/09/2007
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Video quality is fine...I was a little dissapointed as it is still the 'old' vintage Felix..I am still looking for Felix the Cat as seen on TV in the 60's..."
A good sampling of TV-era Felix cartoons

(4 out of 5 stars)

"This DVD contains 10 unedited full-color episodes from the 1958-59 season of the TV show. Early children's TV shows were usually live shows such as "Howdy Doody", because animation was expensive. Cartoons on TV were usually those originally shown at the theatre such as Looney Tunes. This is one of the first cartoons made for TV, although Felix had been around since 1919 in various forms.

Considering that this is vintage animation for television, the picture is a bit softer than what one would find in theatrical cartoons of the same period. Colors generally have a dusty pastel quality, but otherwise look pretty good. The contrast is good, and the Dolby Digital monaural soundtrack is crisp and free from noise or distortion. Dialogue is always completely intelligible. The fidelity is rather limited, with music and sound effects sometimes coming off a bit harsh.

As for extras, the 1920 short film "Feline Follies", which was Felix's unofficial film debut, is included on the DVD. A "Felix the Cat Through the Ages" interview with author John Canemaker offers a concise history of the character and his creators through various incarnations. An original Felix the Cat Promo Reel offers clips used to promote the TV show in various languages. A Felix the Cat Sing-A-Long provides the kiddies a chance to follow a bouncing ball and sing the show's theme song. A trivia game has also been included on the DVD."
