Don’t Take It Off!

Director Tex Avery and animator Preston Blair turned out some of the sexiest cartoons of all time! A 1943 theater audience in Iselin, N.J., clapped, whistled, and yelled, until the beleaguered manager showed one of their hot toons three times!

D. J. David B. Spins Comics-Tunes: Felix The Cat

Felix the Cat was one of the earliest animated cartoon characters (dating back to 1919), the very FIRST character to appear on television (in a decidedly unanimated role as a test pattern) and the first balloon in Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade in 1927. So then why has it taken this long for Felix to make hit first appearance on DJ David B’s Comics Tunes Tuesday? I am so ashamed.

It is believed that Felix was created by cartoonist/animator Otto Messmer, although producer Pat Sullivan claimed credit.

Felix, the first TV star.

(This parade was actually in Toronto, but you get the idea.)

This 1958 cartoon theme song should resonate with all you Arf-loving baby boomers who grew up messmer-ized by Felix as he rooted around in his bag of tricks to find a way out of a jam with The Professor and Poindexter.

It’s a long road from the silver screen of 1919 to the internet of 2008, but you finally made it, Felix. That’ll do, cat. That’ll do.
