Felix the Cat in Skulls and Sculls (c.1930). Directed By Pat Sullivan. Produced By Jacques Kopfstein. Black & White. U.S.A. Originally Released Theatrically. Synopsis: In Part One, "Skulls", Felix the Cat is abducted into a nightmarish world haunted by ghosts and monsters. Through a seamless yet surreal transition, Felix is able to escape into the safety of a world of laughter and happiness. At the end Felix is once again captured by the ghosts and is sentenced to death. In Part Two, "Sculls", reality transitions again and it is revealed, upon the moment of his death, that the ghosts where never ghosts and, in fact, people who are part of the "C" club. Felix then discovers he has been initiated into the club, and joins them in a boat (or scull) race. While the reality of this world appears to be stable (although the physics are somewhat strange), the reality of Felix's own body is not. Felix discovers his body can separate and morph - giving him an edge to win the race. History: Felix the Cat emerged from the Pat Sullivan cartoon studio as a comic strip in 1923, and gained popularity throughout the 1920's. The first Felix the Cat cartoons were silent films. The silent film era transitioned into "talkies" in the late 1920's, and the first cartoon with synchronized sound was Walt Disney's "Steamboat Willie" in 1928. In 1929, Sullivan made the transition from silent films to "talkies" and began distributing Felix sound cartoons through Copley Pictures. The Felix theatrical shorts with sound lasted through 1932. Sullivan died in 1933. Felix the Cat lives on and has continued to be animated for nearly a century. In 2014, the rights to the character were acquired by DreamWorks Animation.
