Otto Messmer Felix the Cat Classics Collection 1919-1924 B&W NR
Otto Messmer Felix the Cat is a rarity–a cartoon character so classic, so beloved, that he’s stayed in the public eye for more than seventy-five years. Now you can have a DVD that’s the cat’s meow–a collection of sixteen vintage Felix cartoons from 1919-1924, restored to their original projection speed with Dave Wickerham’s rich new organ scores.
This Otto Messmer Felix the Cat collection starts with the very first Felix cartoon “Feline Follies” (before he was officially Felix), and includes the other 2 shorts that shared the reel. “Feline Follies” is the last, so you don’t actually see Felix for about 5 minutes into the DVD. A very good sampling of Felix follows; right up to almost the end (when sound had a hand in slapping Felix’s glory to dust).
Another great thing is the preservation of the cartoons in their entirety. The other Otto Messmer Felix DVD collection currently available hacks off some of the titles, which are just as interesting as the ‘toons themselves.
Please note that this Otto Messmer Felix the Cat collection is on one DVD, with the “episodes” following each other – in other words, there’s no menu due to the nature of cartoon shorts and the age of the cartoons.
