Needless to say, it changed a lot over the years.  In the 1960′s,
it was my favorite.

    Hi, I just checked Wikipedia and they give Dec. 14, 1919 as the third appearance of Felix. Got any musings on that? I will edit the wiki article if you are confident of your dates,

    The blurb on the site that hosts this video mentions that the character Felix was seen first in Feline Follies. It was several days later that Felix was featured as the main character. So the anniversary date depends upon whether one is celebrating the origination of the Felix-the-character, or the origination of Felix as a main character in his “own” cartoon.
