If you long for seeing anything about Felix the Cat, this CD is for you. Otherwise, if you're expecting a true "Collector's Edition," don't waste your time and don't waste your money.
Given that this was a DVD, I was expecting to see several classic episodes from Felix the Cat. Instead, this DVD only contained one hour (or ten episodes) from the series. DVDs can hold at least two hoursr of material.... this was a great disappointment!
I was really disappointed because many of the things that made the series special were missing:
* no va-va-voom!
* only two five minute episodes with the magic bag
* only one episode with Master Cylinder
* only two five minute episodes with Rock Bottom
* only one and a half episodes with Poindexter
This is not a "Collector's Edition." It's just a random set of episodes that someone put together to make a quick buck.

Anyone that watched Felix the Cat on a daily basis as I did in the '60s will undoubtedly enjoy the sheer nostalgia of these cartoons. Having not seen Felix in many years, I was amazed at how familiar the episodes were. In fact, I found myself remembering the dialogue! As strange as the current "new wave" of cartoons may be, it's hard to duplicate the surrealistic quality that dominates the world of Felix, Poindexter, The Master Cylinder etc. The transfer on these cartoons, while not perfect, is certainly acceptable and no doubt superior to the scratchy films that have been shown on TV over the years. The episodes themselves are well chosen, although I was a bit dissapointed at the absence of the cartoon featuring "Big Brownie". Any chance of sequels to this disk? I'm not aware of how many cartoons were created, but I'm sure there are more than enough to fill another disk or two. My kids are hooked, and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this disk to anyone with fond memories of Felix and his strange adventures.

Boy, did this DVD bring back loads of memories of being a child and running home from school to watch Felix The Cat cartoons. Unfortunately, this DVD only has 11 chapters (1 is a secret chapter you see after you play the trivia game) out of 121 chapters. We need more Felix The Cat chapters on DVD. I hope that there is more to come.

For cartoon fanatics over the age of 35 who remember sitting un front of the television on Saturday mornings in pajamas eating cereal. Each cartoon is a short but welcome break from reality and something to share with your own kids with having to censor it first. A Must buy for Felix lovers everywhere.

I vaguely remembered Felix the cat from when i was growing up and decided to give this DVD along with "The Twisted Tales of Felix the Cat" a try. I watched this one completely last night and I loved it. All of the episodes were funny and entertaining. I would recommend this to anyone who is a fan of cartoons of this era.

Format: DVD
This DVD contains 10 unedited full-color episodes from the 1958-59 season of the TV show. Early children's TV shows were usually live shows such as "Howdy Doody", because animation was expensive. Cartoons on TV were usually those originally shown at the theatre such as Looney Tunes. This is one of the first cartoons made for TV, although Felix had been around since 1919 in various forms.

Considering that this is vintage animation for television, the picture is a bit softer than what one would find in theatrical cartoons of the same period. Colors generally have a dusty pastel quality, but otherwise look pretty good. The contrast is good, and the Dolby Digital monaural soundtrack is crisp and free from noise or distortion. Dialogue is always completely intelligible. The fidelity is rather limited, with music and sound effects sometimes coming off a bit harsh.

As for extras, the 1920 short film "Feline Follies", which was Felix's unofficial film debut, is included on the DVD. A "Felix the Cat Through the Ages" interview with author John Canemaker offers a concise history of the character and his creators through various incarnations. An original Felix the Cat Promo Reel offers clips used to promote the TV show in various languages. A Felix the Cat Sing-A-Long provides the kiddies a chance to follow a bouncing ball and sing the show's theme song. A trivia game has also been included on the DVD.

Finally, the Felix cartoons from the fabulous 50s on DVD! There are 10 episodes on this DVD (which seem to have been culled from other sources) and they're a pretty good mix. There's the Professor, Rock Bottom, Poindexter, and the Master Cylinder (who was human once until he blew himself up - never knew that), but I wish they had included VaVoom! The production quality is very good, although the episode numbering is strange - as I said before they probably pulled these from VHS. There are episodes that number in the 20s yet there are only ten on the disc (with an 11th shown only if you get 8 or more trivia questions right)! In spite of some production issues, if you're a kid of the 60s that watched Felix along with Underdog, Gigantor, Speed Racer, Bullwinkle et al, pick this one up. Hopefully there will be more!!

Video quality is fine...I was a little dissapointed as it is still the 'old' vintage Felix..I am still looking for Felix the Cat as seen on TV in the 60's...
