Felix the Cat

Felix the Cat is considered to be the first (popular) animated cartoon. He was created by Otto Messmer, during the Silent Film Era, and was more popular than some of the silent movie actors! Felix was also the first cartoon balloon in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. One of Felix’s main characteristics is having a big smile on his face. In Latin, the word felix is an adjective which means happy and/or blessed.
