Skulls and Sculls is a disappointing Felix entry
4 July 2006 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

Skulls and Sculls starts with two eyes in the dark going back and forth. When the lights come on we find Felix crying in front of a lot of people in sheets. He is in a fraternity initiation. Felix gets blindfolded and then a goat comes for Felix to ride on. The goat bumps Felix up and down before going down a flight of stairs. The stairs turn into a dragon. Felix tries to escape before he finds some window bars which he plays like a harp. Those bars turn into four ostriches' legs that run away. Felix then jumps some pond rocks one of which turn into a pelican's head with fish. Another turns into a sheeted person who chases Felix. Felix heads him off and comes to a bridge which shakes as he comes on. It turns into a tree branch pulled by another frat brother! Felix comes swinging to the house exhausted but now initiated! Two of the brothers hoist Felix singing "He's a Jolly Good Fellow". It is now time for the boat race. Now he's followed by his three frat brothers, each carrying an oar. His competitors are four giraffes and an elephant. At one point, Felix and his team go up a waterfall (or maybe it was the four giraffes, the cuts are confusing here). Felix and his teammates become exhausted. He detaches his tail which wakes up a fish who thinks it's a worm (I'm guessing by this point the tail becomes an outboard motor with the fish following, again confusing cuts). Felix wins the race and once again gets hoisted by his frat brothers for another round of "He's a Jolly Good Fellow". The End. As you can tell, this is confusing even for a Felix short. The fraternity initiation sets a good mood for a Halloween type cartoon but it falls apart with the boat race. I don't even know if the cuts were real or if somebody spliced too much frames! The synchronization seems to be a bit off too. Maybe they were trying to rush release this during Felix's waning days while Mickey Mouse was winning public adulation after Steamboat Willie (1928). Only see this if you're a Felix completist or animation buff. Otherwise, not recommended.
