Eats Are West (film #8 on Felix the Cat DVD (Delta Entertainment, 2004) ("A Felix Comic"). Also, film #2 on Felix the Cat, Vol. 1 (Video Resources, 1994)). [Category: Hollywood]

Felix the Cat is really cool. Who else do you know that can make an airplane out of a 2 x 4 and some exclamation points that appear above his head when he's surprised? In this cartoon, our master manipulator of reality is hungry and broke, so he goes to the Old West to get something to eat and runs afoul of some gunfighters. Lots of great Felix moments ensue, like him fashioning a horse from a lasso, stealing a bunch of pancakes from the image on a billboard (and running afoul of Aunt Jemima), and hiding behind a stick-figure tree. Watch out when the lights go out, though! Like I said, Felix is cool.

Ratings: Camp/Humor Value: ****. Weirdness: *****. Historical Interest: ****. Overall Rating: ****.
