FELIX THE CAT

 

Running Time: 7 mins.
Vault: VINTAGE CARTOONS

Caught in a thunderstorm, Felix seeks refuge in King Cole's castle. This King Cole is not only a merry old soul, but a boastful one as well. The castle's ghosts can't stand the king's bragging, so they strap him to a machine to suck the wind out of him. The ghosts expose him to the gas that exudes his boastings. The King learns it's not nearly as fun listening to his speech as it is making it. A fascinating sequence that has to be seen to be believed, it effectively exploits the essential unreality of animation.
