Felix a pugilist wonder?
28 July 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Oscar upsets the rough and ready Splint McCullough, a grizzled hockey player who spends as much time in the penalty box for fighting as he does on the ice. Oscar gets a black eye for his troubles and sets about writing a savage sports report to further darken McCullough's name, this greatly concerns Felix so Felix sets off to confront McCullough in a calm and gentile manner, but he also falls foul of the big goon and winds up in a boxing contest with him.

A solid if easily forgotten episode, the high point being that the calm and prim Felix is seemingly oblivious to the peril he faces. Coming across as a sort of David Versus Goliath parable, The Fight Of The Felix is charming enough but suffers from Oscar taking a back seat to the main core of the story. 7/10
