Felix the Cat was the first animated superstar, and these early shorts reveal the source of the character’s phenomenal popularity. Animator Otto Messmer created Felix for “Feline Follies,” a one-shot cartoon designed to fill a gap in an installment of the Paramount Screen Magazine. Messmer had learned how to use mime and expressions by studying the films of Charlie Chaplin, and even in his relatively crude debut film, Felix seems alive.
