Felix the Cat

The original animated star, and perhaps the most enduring, this is one of Felix's many incarnations; this time a TV series which first aired around 1960. Bearing little relation in many respects to the original 1920's Felix, the cast here consists of mostly new characters, including Felix's nemesis, The Professor, and his genius nephew Poindexter, Rock Bottom, Felix's pal - an eskimo named Vavoom who can start an avalanche by shouting his name - and the oddly familiar villain, The Master Cylinder. Felix retains some of the impossible attributes of his original incarnation, re-invented here in the form of his magical 'bag of tricks', which The Professor is constantly trying to steal, and which of course Felix 'reaches into' 'whenever he gets in a fix'.
