Storyline

Felix the Cat comes home after a night of drunken revelry at a nightclub. His wife, wielding a rolling pin, waits up for him. Felix tries to explain why he came home late with three ludicrous tales. First, a con man tricks him out of his paycheck by selling him a fur coat that proves to have a live bear inside of it. Next, Felix buys his wife some candy from a gift shop. A mugger steals it from him, discovers it's only candy, and kicks it over a cliff. Felix chases after it, but the candy falls into the sea. Felix swims after it and ends up on a ship as a storm sets in. Finally, Felix tries to explain a tell-tale blonde hair on his shoulder by claiming to have fought with a lion. Written by J. Spurlin

Some Tall Tales
29 January 2014 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

Felix the Cat has spent the evening night-clubbing. When he comes home after midnight to find the Missus waiting with a rolling pin, he comes up with several stories to explain his penniless dishabille.

Although the cartoon Felix was always a master manipulator of his environment, with an ability to turn anything into anything else, director Otto Messmer has invested the cartoon with a more subjective-seeming reality, as roads wander hither and yon beneath his feet and keyholes move out of his reach. It's certainly offbeat for Felix to deal with a universe that does not yield to his customary élan, but the gags are, as always, exceedingly amusing.
