Felix the Cat follows the offbeat adventures of that curious feline, Felix. The first episodes where shown in black & white silent cartoons before it's relaunch in the 1960s. Although he was quickly overshadowed by Walt Disney's Mickey Mouse, America's favorite cat still remains a classic.
Felix's search for sleep leads him to Africa, where he fails to find a resting place until he's fought off dozens of animals.
In search of a job, Felix first invents a makeshift player piano, then competes with a ship's goat mascot for money and food. The pair's explosive fight causes the Navy to think that the ship is under attack.
Felix is up all night at the Whoopee Club, then drunkenly tries to make his way home without his wife finding out. He successfully gets into the house but wakes up his wife in a final fight with a pillow that he mistakes for a chicken.
Mice have declared war on cats and Felix enlists, bidding Kitty adieu. At the front, Felix battles and plays music with fellow cat soldiers (who look remarkably like Krazy Kat, or like the alley cat in Messmer's contemporary Laura Sunday strip). Returning home a hero, Felix discovers that Kitty has had a litter in his absence. Felix considers suicide, but ends up beating a retreat by car.
Felix is initiated into a college fraternity by way of a spooky hazing in a "haunted" house. Then he captains his college friends in the big college boat race. The team tires out, but by hitching the boat to a big fish, Felix pulls his crew across the finish line first.
Felix tries to take Inky and Dinky on a picnic, but a snake-charming rabbit and his bear friend steal the felines' repast. In the end Felix thinks he's recovered the picnic basket from a stork's beak, but it turns out to be a baby-delivering stork—and Felix's two kittens become many more.
Felix tricks his father into thinking that he's practicing the piano, then escapes to play golf with Skiddoo the mouse. After raising the ire of the local fire department, he's shot overseas on a jet of water and lands in Africa, where jungle cannibals try to devour him.
