FELIX THE CAT - The First Cartoon Star

Happy Birthday to the World's First Cartoon Superstar, Felix the Cat. He made his debut in the Pat Sullivan Toon, "Feline Follies" and through-out the 1920's went on to star in hundred's of cartoons in the silent era.
Felix didn't survive once the sound cartoons started being made, but in the 1950's Felix was reborn on TV with his adventures and his magic bag.
In the mid 1990's CBS brought him back in some new cartoons for Saturday morning and combined his look of the Twenties and the series of the Fifties for a great new series.
