Life is Just a Bag of Tricks - Felix the Cat ... Felix the Cat debuted in 1919 making him one of the oldest cartoon characters, though still the dispute remains whether Felix was created by Pat Sullivan or Otto Messmer; the wonderful cartoon character with his big smile and the surreal situations he ends up in make him one of the most recognizable cartoon characters.
This is a lovely photograph of my father, Ken taken with the then very popular Felix the Cat at Hastings! c1925
