This show is definitely worth it though, it's well animated, extremely clever, and very stylized.

Youll like these felix cartoons if youre a fan, or just admire the early type of animation which i still think is the best.

I didn't know what to expect from this newer take on Felix, but I was very pleasantly surprised by how much fun it is.

no one likes to take chances on new things and unfortunately for this cartoon, it only ran for i think 2 years. this dvd is a nice look back at it, with some of the best episodes. its very nicely animated, a 30's 40's look animation with a nice soundtrack put in by the Club Foot Orchestra. The music is very retro and cool, very much like the cartoons of the 30's and 40's had in thier days. Yes, these are new cartoons made in the 1990's but they look so cool in the old style animation type drawings. Very surreal, i mean extremely surreal cartoons. they are extremely enjoyable. I wish they would have released the whole first season on dvd, and released a soundtrack cd. Youll like these felix cartoons if youre a fan, or just admire the early type of animation which i still think is the best.

In some ways he's more like your grandfather's Felix. Don Oriolo, the keeper of the Felix flame, successfully combined characteristics of Otto Messmer's Felix of the 1920s with Joe Oriolo's Felix of the 1960s to create a character who recalls earlier times but is in many ways truly original.
THE TWISTED TALES OF FELIX THE CAT is an enjoyable blending of the classic and the contemporary. The cartoons are entirely modern even though some drawing styles and visual images from past eras are used in making them. The Magic Bag and Skidoo the Mouse are the only carryovers from the earlier Felix cartoons. Otherwise Felix appears with an entirely new cast of supporting characters.
The music by San Francisco's Club Foot Orchersta is outstanding and deserves to be issued on its own CD. It has the flavor of 1920s and 1930s jazz and is not merely background music. It is written and performed to enhance the action on the screen and does so perfectly.
The voice of Felix in this series is listed as Thom Adcox Hernandez in one set of credits and as Thom Adcox in two others.
Rather than being an imitation of the type of voice Felix had in the earlier TV cartoons, the new voice gives Felix a not-so-squeaky sound and contributes to the originality of the character. Overall, THE TWISTED TALES OF FELIX THE CAT succeeds on every level. It should appeal to those who remember earlier versions of Felix and those who are meeting him for the first time. It is great to have some of these cartoons available on DVD and hopefully we'll be seeing more of them before too long.

I have to agree with my fellow reviewers here that "The Twisted Tales of Felix the Cat" tried very, very hard. Best of all, Felix's personality seems to be more or less intact, and there are some pretty weird, surreal things going on.
However, it just doesn't seem to gel quite right. The cartoons are an uncomfortable blend of 1920's and 1990's cartoon styles. In black and white it may have worked, or at least looked better, but this is full-color 1990's "limited" animation. This more modern type of animation gives a sort of cheap, "plastic" look to some of the drawings which make the 1920's stylings look out of place.
Overall, I'm not the least bit sorry I bought this, but the hard-core Felix fan may be a wee bit disappointed with this retro effort.
I think I would have been happier if at least the old Felix theme song had been included, or more classic Felix foes were on hand. Peking Duck and his henchmen are pretty cool, though, and the whole thing was a pretty good effort to bring Felix back to Saturday Morning cartoons.

"The Twisted Tales of Felix the Cat" was easily one of the high points of late 90s animation on network TV for me. Incredibly surreal, I'd wake up *very* early on a Saturday or Sunday morning, specifically to watch this show. For the next half hour, I'd just stare at the TV, bleary-eyed, amazed at the trippiness of the cartoon. I was quite upset when it was taken off the air. Talking sausages with moustaches, freaky flying eyeballs, lots of Magic Bag tricks and much more on this disc - I could watch this show every day and not get tired of it. Buy this disc if you love surreal, humorous animation. You won't regret it - it's a great price, too!

This is a great DVD. It has 10 episodes (11 if you count the 2 parter) of the truely-twisted 1995-96 tv series by Film Roman Inc. Picture quality is good, and the menus are cool. Episodes included are: The Petrified Cheese, Manhattan Triangle, Now Playing Felix, Jailhouse Shock, The Sludge Kings Parts 1 & 2, Mars Needs Felix, Space Time Twister, Guardian Idiot, Step Right Up, and Don't String Me Along. A great deal for the price... a DVD that should belong in every toon-addicts collection!

If you are looking for the classic cartoon (or something like it), look elsewhere.

However, if you want a modern interpretation of the classic cartoon along with an incredible soundtrack done by an eclectic multipiece band, then this DVD is for you.

Excellent writing, strong humor, and definitely twisted (without being offensive). While generally safe for the younger set, adult cartoon fans will enjoy this, too. Great party backdrop.

I didn't know what to expect from this newer take on Felix, but I was very pleasantly surprised by how much fun it is. It's different and very Twisted (in a good way) yet still Felix. Twisted Tales is a fantastic show. I wish the rest of the episodes were available.
