This cartoon has no Precedent!
1 May 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

During the early days of television development it was necessary to monitor and adjust the quality of the transmitted picture in order to get the best definition. To do this, engineers required an 'actor' to constantly be under the burning studio lights as they tweaked and sharpened the image, and Felix fit the bill perfectly. He was the right colour (black and white), impervious to the heat from the lights and worked cheaply (in fact a one-off payment was all that was required). RCA's first experimental television transmissions began in 1928 by station W2XBS (New York-Channel #1) in Van Cortlandt Park and then moved to the New Amsterdam Theater Building, transmitting 60 line pictures. The 13" Felix the Cat figure made of paper mache was placed on a record player turntable and was broadcast using a mechanical scanning disk to an electronic kinescope receiver. The image received was only 2 inches tall, and the broadcasts lasted about 2 hours per day. By 1931 the station became part of NBC and began to transmit from 42nd St. These early broadcasts consisted of objects like Felix the Cat or early test patterns and photographs. Felix remained on his turntable for almost a decade as the early experimenters strove towards the goal of a high definition picture.

Out of all the cartoons I've watched in my life, none has ever gave me as much joy as the 1960's felix the cat. And now I hunt for these generations of cartoons that inspired my imagination. When I first got this movie I thought it was about the purple felix the cat which I also enjoyed, but it's not. So many bizarre twisted stories and how the world and all inanimate objects come to life is just amazing! I mean this can't even compare to garfield!
