Notably, a lot of his 1920s shorts revolve around him trying to get food by any means necessary, even going as far as stealing from other people. In the 1936 cartoons, he is portrayed as more innocent and child-like, and thus less mischievous. In the 1950s cartoon and later incarnations, he is shown to have a fondness for puns, making them every chance he gets.
Felix is a black cat with a white snout and large eyes that take up most of his face. In the 20’s he had visible whiskers and short legs, but in later adaptions, the whiskers were scrapped and he was given longer legs. He also is taller in many later incarnations, being close to the size of a child rather than a cat. Felix the Cat made his debut in the 1919 animated short “Feline Follies”. Pat Sullivan, owner of the Felix character, claimed during his lifetime to be the cat’s creator. American animator Otto Messmer, Sullivan’s lead animator, has been credited as such. By the late 1920s with the arrival of sound cartoons Felix’s success was fading.

The new Disney shorts of Mickey Mouse made the silent offerings of Sullivan and Messmer, who were then unwilling to move to sound production, seem outdated. In 1929, Sullivan decided to make the transition and began distributing Felix sound cartoons through Copley Pictures. The sound Felix shorts proved to be a failure and the operation ended in 1930. Felix cartoons began airing on American TV in 1953. Joe Oriolo introduced a redesigned, “long-legged” Felix, added new characters, and gave Felix a “Magic Bag of Tricks” that could assume an infinite variety of shapes at Felix’s behest. The cat has since starred in other television programs and in two feature films.
The question of who created Felix remains a matter of dispute. Sullivan stated in numerous newspaper interviews that he created Felix and did the key drawings for the character. On a visit to Australia in 1925, Sullivan told the Australian The Argus newspaper that “The idea was given to me by the sight of a cat which my wife brought to the studio one day. Pat Sullivan said he named Felix after Australia Felix from Australian history and literature.
Sullivan was the studio proprietor and — as is the case with almost all film entrepreneurs — he owned the copyright to any creative work by his employees. In common with many animators at the time, Messmer was not credited. After Sullivan’s death in 1933, his estate in Australia took ownership of the character. It was not until many years after Sullivan’s death, staffers such as Hal Walker, Al Eugster, and Sullivan’s lawyer, Harry Kopp, credited Messmer with Felix’s creation. Sullivan’s studio was very busy, and Paramount, they were falling behind their schedule and they needed one extra to fill in.
And Sullivan, being very busy, said, “If you want to do it on the side, you can do any little thing to satisfy them. So I figured a cat would be about the simplest. Make him all black, you know — you wouldn’t need to worry about outlines. And one gag after the other, you know? So Paramount liked it so they ordered a series.
