Willie Brown's Nifty Nine have a big game on an afternoon that Willie is tossed in jail for making sport of a cop. With their star behind bars, the Nifty Nine quickly fall behind the Tar Heels, a Black team, at the Polo Grounds before a packed crowd. It's up to Felix to save the day. But first, he has to get to the park, then he needs an idea. In this mix of animation and live footage of cars, trains, and baseball fans, Felix needs an assist from Jupiter Pluvius.Written by
Felix the cat cartoon has him having to step into a baseball game to try and win it for a friend who has been thrown in jail. There's some live action mixed in with the animation, which doesn't look too good but on its own, the animation is pretty impressive especially one scene with tons of people getting off a train and entering the ballpark. There's some strong racial stuff where the opposing team, black people, are being played by monkeys so some might want to stay away from that.
From Kino's Reel Baseball set.
