Very interesting early animation that was obviously created completely silent. I music-only sountrack has been added to it. Technically, the print is somewhat worn but is most likely the best available source. A mix of rudimentary hand-drawn animation mixed with shots of live-action and stills is effective. The obvious racial stereotypes are not intended to be specifically offensive, but the slight discomfort one feels when seeing them reflects how our perception has changed over the years. The character of Felix is completely different than the Felix most of us grew up with on television in the early 60s, but it is interesting to see how the character originated. All-in-all, worth just over 7:00 min of your time.
Great baseball film, great animation, typically unfortunate 1920s era racism.
Full of interesting techniques, amusing story. Unfortunately, the racism prevalent at this time is fully apparent.
Wow what a tour de force, animations roots, music like never be4 heard, very playful and imaginative considering what was available.. Beautiful...
cute and interesting toon about felix trying to help a group of boys learn the art of baseball.
I like this one. The mix of animation and live film (of old New York City) is interesting, and there are some great sight gags.
its my fave animation of whole time since I always wanted to see Felix when i was a child.
