Broke and hungry as usual, the free-loading Felix the Cat gets tossed from a Tea Room. He steals the painted flap-jacks from a billboard poster but the also-painted Aunt Jamima gives chase. Losing ground, Felix makes a propeller out of an exclamation-point (serving as an idea sign) and attaches it to a board and flies west. Hitching a ride with a Pony Exress rider delivering grub to the Bar-Nothing boys, Felix eats up the food and is soon waging a gun-battle with the old cowhands from the Rio Grande. Escaping them he is ambushed by a band of hostile Indians and he rides an eastward-bound arrow back to wherever he started from and lands on the street in from of a tobacco shop. He then shoots up the wooden-Indian in front of the cigar store and is chased off by a policeman. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Felix heads west and is, once again, a bit of a jerk
23 September 2013 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

Once again, Felix the Cat is up to strange and surrealistic adventures in "Felix Goes West". And, like he is in quite a few of his early films, he is a bit of a jerk!

The cartoon begins with Felix, once again, hungry. So, he does what he normally does--he tries to steal some food! When that doesn't work, he decides he needs a change of scenery and heads west. Once there, however, he makes a serious nuisance of himself and soon practically everyone hates him--including a bear, a Mexican vaquero and an Indian tribe!

Felix was a great character in his early cartoons. He didn't particularly fit into the perfect hero image and the cartoons were just plain weird. It's no wonder he was the biggest cartoon star for a while--and it was only after writers forgot what made him famous did the cartoons fade in quality and popularity. Well worth seeing.
