On the Topic of Felines...

Felix the Cat has been away from the site for months now, most likely going feral, but since he is my favorite cartoon character, he makes a heroic return this week in this 1922 animated short, titled Felix Saves the Day:

Friday Matinee

Today we have this recently released comedy, starring Doctor Tran as a street vendor. The movie did poorly at the box office, so we can showcase the entire film today without charging admission:

Note: I was told it was rather sexist to showcase girls in bikinis every Friday, so this week, I am going to give it a rest, and highlight them on Saturday instead...

Enemies for Life

Some of you might be wondering why the good doctor feels such hatred for his long-time enemy. To find the answer to that question, one must travel back into time to Doctor Tran's childhood to witness their first encounter:

And Still More Fan Mail

With all the fan mail he receives, it's a wonder that Doctor Tran has time to be a superhero, or for that matter, a superhero that saves America. Perhaps the nail gun helps...

More Fan Mail

As mentioned yesterday, Doctor Tran receives bags and bags of fan mail. It's just too bad he is still too young to read:

Reluctant Role Model

Despite being a superhero, Doctor Tran prefers to spend his free time at home, catching up on correspondence from friends and family. But with his new found fame, his mail box is filled to overflowing and he now spends most of his time responding to fans rather than family:

A Week with a Superhero

With a big summer film release approaching, I thought we might visit with a real movie star this week, and look in on Doctor Tran, America's favorite  superhero, in his day-to-day life. And who is Doctor Tran, you ask? Well, let's find out:

It's going to be a week of crude and vulgar cartoons...if you're at work, use headphones.

Seventh Life

The year 1937 was a sad year for cartoon fans, as Felix the Cat passed away after three years in mourning, the poor feline pining away to nothing for his creator and owner, Pat Sullivan (1885-1933). Felix's last film, Bold King Cole, was released the year before and was still playing in the theaters when the surreal little cat passed on:

Fortunately for Felix, cats have nine lives, which allowed him to be revived in the 1950s and again in the 1990s.

Saturday Cartoons

A more modern Felix the Cat also takes a vacation this week, and heads west. This animation is from the old television show. It is titled Vacation with Mr. Bart:

Good cartoons are getting hard to find, especially after four plus years of posting them, so this is likely to be the last Saturday cartoon (or posting for that matter) for some time. I am planning to start taking one day off a week so that I can address my other writing,  and Saturday seems to be the best day for it.  Beginning in the next week (tomorrow),  posting in this section will run from Sunday through Friday.

Chip and Dale do not actually have jobs, so quaint vacations are out of the question for the two of them. But, being rodent punks,  they also assure that Donald Duck doesn't enjoy his vacation either.  This 1950 Walt Disney animation is titled Trailer Horn:

Note: this is the last post of the week--I have some other business I must attend to this weekend. Normal posting will resume on Monday.

The ghost of Walt Disney must be in a good mood, to allow three of his stars to take vacations three weeks in succession. We'll take advantage of his good humor and watch Mickey Mouse this week in this 1940 animation titled Mr. Mouse Takes a Trip:
