Felix in Hollywood is quite a notable cartoon in the Felix the Cat canon
31 January 2019 | by tavmSee all my reviews

When Leonard Maltin's book, "Of Mice and Magic" which was about the production of theatrical movie cartoons from the silent era to around the '60s, came out, during the chapter on silent cartoons, he especially wrote about the first animated star, Felix the Cat, and especially about this very short I'm reviewing right now. In this one, he helps an actor friend to go to Hollywood by trying to make money selling shoes for a bankrupt proprietor of such a store. Once they're there, Felix goes on his own encountering caricatures of various Hollywood celebs of which one of whom is Charlie Chaplin who says something amusing to Felix. I'll just now say that Felix in Hollywood is quite a funny cartoon that I recommend to any animation fans out there.
