In the 1920s, the makers of Felix the Cat were on top of the world. Their cartoon creation was hugely popular--the biggest cartoon star in the world--and he deserved to be since the cartoons were so incredibly creative and funny. Yet, by the early 1930s, the studio stopped making Felix cartoons. And, through the next several decades, attempts to revive the series all failed--mostly because these new versions had little to do with the originals. So why did the original cartoons stop in the early 30s after so much success? Well, because of a lack of innovation. While Fleischer Brothers Studio and Disney were making sound cartoons in the late 1920s, Pat Sullivan Cartoons (makers of Felix) STILL produced silents into the 1930s. And then, the cartoons featured mostly added sound effects instead of true sound--something you'd find in other more progressive cartoons.

Now you might be thinking 'WAIT--I just saw "Woos Whoopee" and it DID have sound'. Well, that's true and it's not. It originally was a silent and some time years later, sound effects were added as were some very rudimentary verbalizations (which were not at all synchronized with the characters' lips). And, even with these added sounds, these were added after the series was dead or nearly dead. Plus, they really didn't work all that well because while Disney went back and added sound to two of his silents with Mickey ("Plane Crazy" and "Galloping Gauchos"), he and his studio soon was using real, honest to goodness sound and these early sound experiments were soon surpassed--while Felix was still basically a silent star living in the talking picture era.

So is "Woos Whoopee" any good as a silent? Well, not really. This is because there are no jokes--or at least very few. You mostly see Felix doing a lot of inappropriate things for a cartoon character (getting drunk, hallucinating and smoking), none of it is funny aside from the shock value of seeing a cartoon character misbehave. All in all, one of the worst of the original Felix cartoons and, unfortunately, a harbinger of things to come.
