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.

The music accompanying 7 of the 10 cartoons is not just SOME honkeytonk piano player. It is the incomparable JELLY-ROLL MORTON & HIS RED HOT PEPPERS! (16 tracks) There are also 4 tracks by Morton's Trio. All 20 Morton recordings date from 1929-30. They start with "Mint Julep" and "Mississippi Mildred" from a session recorded 11-13-29 and end with "Crazy Chords" recorded 6-2-30. Musicians in Morton's groups include Red Allen, Albert Nicholas, Barney Bigard, Paul Barbarin and Zutty Singleton. The sound quality is exceptional for recordings of that time; very little surface noise. The cartoons themselves mostly date from 1923-25.

Granted, the music has no direct relationship to the cartoon action but I found it greatly enhanced my enjoyment. Such uplifting, fun music. Different music was used on "All Puzzled," "Golden Goose" and "Neptune." Had Morton's music been used on all 10 cartoons I would have given 5 stars.

If you own other Felix dvd's, turn off that horrible organ music and put on some 1923 King Oliver or other early 1920's instrumental jazz recording. You'll be amazed!

This DVD mostly contains the Felix cartoons in his middle years (1924-25). This is probably a good choice, as recent DVDs tend to focus on either his earlier or later years. One highlight is the classic "Felix In Hollywood", where Felix aims to have a career in the movies. There are also a host of movie stars appearing in this cartoon (albeit in animated form), including Douglas Fairbanks, Ben Turpin, and Charlie Chaplin (he's impossible not to miss).

The quality of the silent shorts are acceptable considering their age, as these are probably the best-looking PD versions available. Despite the print damage, it is still watchable. What I don't like about these silents is the added music. With the exception of "Felix Finds Out", all cartoons have stock jazzy musical scores. These may sound authentic and fit into the era of these cartoons, but they just don't fit into the action, leaving some of the gags in "mid-air".

The DVD also contains two of the three colour Felix cartoons produced by the Van Beuren studio. It's not the Felix we know and love, but it is nice to see them included. However, the picture quality of these cartoons is poor. There are better looking prints available, with full original titles. It seems that Delta didn't look further into the PD archives enough.

The DVD presentation isn't one of the best, but when you consider the rare silents included in this DVD and the price, the complaints does sound rather petty. It is a worthwhile purchase.

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.

FELIX IN HOLLYWOOD

Great! This could possibly be the greatest Felix cartoon ever!

FELIX DOUBLES FOR DARWIN

Hilarious, Felix TRIES to prove man evolved from monkeys, but finds out monkey comes after us, literally.

FELIX GOES WEST

Most Felix cartoons are great, and this is no exception.

FELIX FINDS OUT

This one is kind of forgettable. Felix tries to find out why the moon shines. The quality on this cartoon is average, but there is a little squiggle on the top right corner of the pool. It looks like a tornado is coming.

FELIX ALL PUZZLED

This is the worst cartoon on the disc. Felix goes to Russia. It's really short, which may be for the best, because it's boring as it is. The quality is really bad, too.

FELIX MONKEYS WITH MAGIC

The quality is also really bad on this one too. But the actual cartoon is funny.

FELIX GETS THE CAN

Great, as usual.

A FELIX COMIC

As you may suspect, the title ISN'T A FELIX COMIC, It's EATS ARE WEST.

FELIX THE CAT AND THE GOOSE THAT LAID THE GOLDEN EGG

With color and sound. Felix the cat's voice is awful, but the cartoon isn't so bad.

FELIX THE CAT IN NEPTUNE NONSENSE

This time Felix is even worse.
