Trivia: Felix the Cat: The Movie

  • Box Office Bomb: It probably wasn't a good idea to release it in America on the same day as Beauty and the Beast.
  • Dueling Movies: With Disney's Beauty and the Beast, as well as An American Tail: Fievel Goes West and Rock A Doodle, which were all released around roughly the same time as this film. All three of them (especially Beauty) completely crushed this film at the box office.
  • Crossdressing Voices: Poindexter was voiced by Alice Playten.
  • Franchise Killer: This film did nothing to revive interest in Felix and his escapades, and has probably served to hold him back for decades more.
  • Hey, It's That Voice!: Peter Newman, the voice of the Duke of Zill, Wack Lizardi, and Pim, is well known for his roles in ThunderCats (1985).
  • The Shelf of Movie Languishment: The film technically was finished as early as 1987, but was left locked away for years until someone decided to dig it out and release it. Why they didn't take this extra time to touch up on the film's flaws (especially the glaring animation errors) is anyone's guess.
  • Talking to Himself:
    • Chris Phillips as Felix and the Professor.
    • Peter Newman as Wack Lizardi and Pim. It doesn't happen with Wack and the Duke of Zill, though, as Wack only makes a speech about the Duke before the Duke briefly speaks to everyone in the audience.
  • Throw It In: The line of the monster quoting "A Streetcar Named Desire" was ad-libbed by Don Oriolo, who provided his voice.
  • What Could Have Been: The Duke of Zill originally had a different design, which can be seen in the trailer.
