A cartoon character from the silent-film era,
Felix's black body, white eyes, and giant grin, coupled with the
surrealism of the situations in which his cartoons place him,
combined to make him one of the most recognizable cartoon
characters in the world. Felix was the first character from
animation to attain a level of popularity sufficient to draw
movie audiences based solely on his star power.
Joe Oriolo, introduced a redesigned,
"long-legged" Felix in a new animated series for TV. Oriolo gave
Felix his "Magic Bag of Tricks", which could assume an infinite
variety of shapes at Felix's behest.
