Happy peace, Felix pace

I know I’m about twelve hours late with my Saturday morning cartoon post, but oh boy, this is a good one. I spent some time at work this week researching some Felix the Cat history (so I know those first two little guys are named Inky and Winky), but I didn’t come across this cartoon until later today. It’s well worth the wait, I think. I could just listen to this soundtrack and be happy.

Haircuts of the day

When reading about this Felix the Cat novelty song, I learned about a haircut called the shingle different from what I knew in the ’80s as a shingle. As one does, I quickly fell down a rabbit hole of ’20s hairstyles. Coconut bob. Eton crop. Cottage loafEarphones and cootie garages. None of which make any sense for Felix. Who gives a cat a haircut?

Felix is one heck of a loyal friend.

Fire, fire

Right now something called the Sand Fire is raging up in Santa Clarita and the sky here some thirty miles away is filled with smoke and ash and the sun looks like an angry red eye. Sand Fire. Not as good a name as the recent Witch Fire and Fish Fire, but still quite dramatic. Coming up with the names for the big brush fires we have down here would be a job I would enjoy, I think. Stay safe, everyone.

Thanks for that crazy fire timelapse video, Amanda Cole!

What do you call a camel with three humps?

“There’s a place in France
Where the ladies wear no pants…”

What is the actual name of that song? “Egyptian Melody”? “Arabian Song”? “Camel Dance”? Benny is also finding alternate lyrics:

“On the planet Mars
All the women smoke cigars…”

Hm. Anyway, watch the women in this cartoon. They are wearing pants and not smoking cigars.

Trigger warning

Maybe that’s just laughing gas.

If you find yourself worried about the whereabouts of mini-Felix about halfway through this cartoon, you’re not the only one. Have no fear; he (she?) reappears by the time the story wraps up.

The bike with horsepower

I don’t know about you, but I’m finding the body-slicing abilities of the animals on this farm way scarier than any old witch or hooting pumpkin.

Hammy

I never knew we had such a terrible mosquito problem in Los Angeles. Maybe I should taking fencing lessons.
