A well-made Felix the Cat silent cartoon with the usual assortment of wild gags. This time, our plucky feline protagonist takes a magic-carpet ride to Arabia. There's an excellent sight-gag as Felix grabs what appears to be a moon and two palms on the horizon, and turns it into an impromptu banjo! Felix the Cat was a popular cartoon star in the silent era and the silent cartoons have a surrealism that seems to be lost in the sound Felix cartoons. One important note: although it only says 'Pat Sullivan' on the title credits, part of the brilliance of the silent Felix the Cat cartoons is due to the efforts of Otto Messmer.
