* {{Crossover}}: The ''Betty Boop & Felix'' newspaper comics, where Felix is a housepet to WesternAnimation/BettyBoop. Felix the Cat appeared as Betty's pet in the beginning, but the strip later dropped Felix altogether when it was discovered that King Features didn't actually own the rights to the character despite having distributed his comics before, so it just became a Betty Boop comic later on. One of these comics also had a cameo appearance of [[ComicStrip/{{Popeye}} Wimpy.]]



* {{Expy}}: Betty Boop in the ''Betty Boop & Felix'' newspaper comics is basically depicted as [[ComicStrip/BettleBailey Miss Buxley]] in personality (unsurprising, considering the artists behind the strip were behind the ''Beetle Bailey'' comic). Felix himself is basically turned into an acerbic ''ComicStrip/{{Garfield}}'' clone. Most of the other ancillary characters in the comic are also straight out of ''Beetle Bailey''.



* ShoutOut: In one of the ''Betty Boop & Felix'' comics, Betty meets a shark named Jabberjaw. While the name is a reference to [[WesternAnimation/{{Jabberjaw}} Hanna-Barbera's cartoon shark]], his design is lifted from Depatie-Freleng's ''Misterjaw'' shark character.

* Betty Boop and Felix (198488): A crossover newspaper comic featuring WesternAnimation/BettyBoop, with Felix starring as her house pet in place of her dog Pudgy. The comic was distributed by King Features Syndicate and was written by Brian, Morgan, Greg and Neal Walker, the sons of ComicStrip/BeetleBailey creator Mort Walker. Curiously, Felix does not talk in this comic, and [[AdaptedOut the Magic Bag is absent.]]

** The ''Betty Boop & Felix'' newspaper comics, where Felix acts as a normal, non speaking house pet to WesternAnimation/BettyBoop, basically replacing Pudgy the dog from Betty's own cartoons. The Felix of this continuity was a lot closer in personality to ''ComicStrip/{{Garfield}}'' in that he was given acerbic things to say via thought balloons. He never spoke and had [[AdaptedOut neither a detachable tail nor his Magic Bag of Tricks]]. Betty was very much the Jon Arbuckle to Felix's ''Garfield'', an owner & her pet cat, and a lot of the humor in this strip relied mostly on name-dropping current celebrities. Eventually, Felix was [[PutOnABus dropped from the strip altogether]] when King Features Syndicate realized they didn't actually have the rights to use him, making it a solo Betty Boop comic from then on.
