Description by OLDIES.com:

Before Mickey Mouse, Felix the Cat was the first world-famous cartoon star. Created by Pat Sullivan and Otto Messmer in 1919, the Felix shorts delighted moviegoers with their surreal and often topical humor. Now Long Island-based film historian John K. Carpenter ("The Movie Man") digs even further into his Massapequa film vault to present more of Felix's best moments. "Cartoons were never made solely for children. They were presented along with feature films for adults during the morning, matinee and evening screenings and needed to hold the interest of a mature audience -- which explains why Felix was loved by filmgoers of all ages long before Mickey came along! Felix had to handle tumultuous situations like stormy marriages and even Prohibition, which shows that Sullivan and Messmer were working out their own daily issues and concerns through the cartoon feline. The public embraced Felix because they dreamed of responding to adversity like he did when their back was pressed up against the wall!"
