Felix the Cat in Neptune Nonsense (film #3 on 11 Cartoons Starring Felix the Cat DVD (PC Treasures, 2005). Also, film #10 on Felix the Cat DVD (Delta Entertainment, 2004)). [Category: Hollywood]

Felix goes under the sea to find a companion for his pet goldfish in this later, talking Felix cartoon. This is a little bit better than most of the Felixes from this period, as he gets to have some run-ins with various strange sea creatures. Still, the original Felix from the silents would have definitely eaten all that fish, as well as manipulated the environment in various bizarre ways. He was an anarchist, rather than a cutie-pie, as he is here. Stick to the silents, I say.

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