Did You Know?

The theme song was recorded in New York City in 1959. It was sung by East Coast big band singer Ann Bennett. The 15-minute session paid her $75 and resulted in both an English and Spanish version.See more »
Revealing mistakes: When each character makes his trademark gesture, such as Felix' triumphant laugh, the exact same footage (with voice and sound effects), inserted onto a different background, is often reused from episode to episode to save money.See more »
[theme song]
Singer:Felix the cat, / The wonderful, wonderful cat. / Whenever he gets in a fix / He reaches into his bag of tricks. / Felix the cat, / The wonderful, wonderful cat. / You'll laugh so much your sides will ache. / Your heart will go pit-a-pat, / Watching Felix the wonderful cat.

cat of all trades, 16 August 2009
Author: Lee Eisenberg ( from Portland, Oregon, USA

I watched several episodes of "Felix the Cat" when I was a little boy, and it wasn't until the last few years that I learned that the adventurous feline was first created in the 1910s.

It's always cool to see what sort of weird thing Felix has in his bag. It used to puzzle me that the Professor was alternately good and bad (but I loved how his efforts to steal Felix's bag always ended in total embarrassment). Poindexter seriously needs some fun and imagination in his life. Rock Bottom is truly giving dogs a bad name. Master Cylinder would have discouraged the very thought of the moon landing* were he real. I never have seen any episode starring Vavoom.

Anyway, a pretty good show. Right-e-o indeed!

*Last month of course saw the 40th anniversary. Walter Cronkite considered it the defining moment of the 20th century.

PS: Felix is the Latin word for "happy" or "lucky". The name also of course sounds like feline.
