Truly hilarious, the genuine article. Felix the Cat saves the team from defeat through his wily wits! With a great organ accompaniment. A must-see if you wish to understand early animated strips. In spite of the dark-faced opposing team, the humor is still relevant today. This is a brief comedic sketch that ages well.

Awesome. The animation of the kid and cop climbing the building blew my mind. And the Fly-Cop had me cracking up. Smart.

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.

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.

A nice time piece. Inspiring to see my first Felix film. Silly, of course, and worth checking out.

Wow what a tour de force, animations roots, music like never be4 heard, very playful and imaginative considering what was available.. Beautiful...

Full of interesting techniques, amusing story. Unfortunately, the racism prevalent at this time is fully apparent.

cute and interesting toon about felix trying to help a group of boys learn the art of baseball.

Loved it!

its my fave animation of whole time since I always wanted to see Felix when i was a child.
