Felix the cat!

I'm a cartoon character who was created in 1919 by Otto Messmer. I was the very first based on an animal but with a human personality. My first feature was Felix Saves the Day, which was shown in 1922.

I was one of the most famous stars of the 1920, rivaling Chaplin and Keaton. The Prince of Wales picked me has his Polo team mascot, a picture of me accompanied Charles Lindbergh across the Atlantic, and a statue of me was the first image successfully transmitted during the development of Television.

In the '60s I was the star of my own television series, in which I somehow obtained a Magic Bag of Tricks (didn't we all...). No one ever seems to agree whether or not I have teeth or whiskers.

I like to spend my time:

Je suis un véritable chat passe-partout!
