Trivia / The Twisted Tales of Felix the Cat

  • Creator Backlash: Despite efforts to shift to script written episodes in Season 2, it was even more of a ratings disaster than the first season, and it was seen as a disaster in the eyes of everyone involved with it, according to Milton Knight.
  • Descended Creator: Don Oriolo wrote and performer the theme song.
  • Keep Circulating the Tapes: The show is almost impossible to find on home video, getting only a handful of rare VHS releases and DVD releases in China and Germany. The fact that virtually everyone involved in the show hated working on it, combined with the show being jointly owned by Film Roman and DreamWorks Classics (who got the show after acquiring the rights to the character in 2014), has only added to the difficulty.
  • The Other Darrin: Felix had two voice actors in this series: Thom Adcox Hernandez (credited as Thomas Adcox at the time of the show's airing) and Charlie Adler (who did voicework as Felix's vacuum in one episode).
  • Troubled Production: Milton Knight, an animator and director on the series, claimed that a major problem during production was that they couldn't make up their mind what kind of cartoon this was supposed to be—there was one group who wanted a Felix like the Otto Messmer shorts, one group who wanted Max Fleischer surreality, Don Oriolo who wanted the Trans-Lux Felix, one group who wanted the show to be Ren and Stimpy-esque, and one director who wanted a Robert Crumb influence! This resulted in the show being completely different between the two seasons—the first season was storyboarded and was absurdly surreal in its premises and animation, whearas the second season was more scripted and focused more on one-liners, provided by the writer of Garfield & Friends.
