Felix The Cat: The Movie
is a feature-length film from The Renaissance Age of Animation
, starring Felix the Cat
, a Funny Animal
who walks the earth
and happens to own a Magic Bag of Tricks
, who travels into another dimension after being summoned by a sentient teardrop
to save the Kingdom of Oriana and its Princess from her Evil Uncle
, the Duke of Zill
, and his army of robotic cylinders.No, really.
The film was produced by Pannonia Film Studio
in Hungary, and directed by Tibor Hernádi. The film is estimated to have been completed in 1986 or 1987, but it only received limited release in 1988 and 1989, finally getting a proper U.S. release in August 1991. The film was a Box Office Bomb
, but it aired frequently on the Disney Channel
for a few years afterward; along with subsequent VHS rereleases, this allowed the film to gain a small following.
