Felix the Cat is a character from the franchise of the same name. Created in 1919 by Otto Messmer and Pat Sullivan, Felix is the oldest character to make a major tournament. Massively popular during his silent film era, he is considered the first massive cartoon character and the symbol of the silent era of film animation. While later characters like Mickey Mouse overtook him in popularity, he remains one of the most influential creations in animation history. He later received a revival through the 1950s Felix the Cat TV series, which introduced notable aspects like the Bag of Tricks, and is also notable for starring in the 90s cult cartoon series Twisted Tales of Felix the Cat
Despite not appearing in any new media since 2004 (thank Don "Coconut Fred" Oriolo for that), Felix's influence and prior work has allowed him to contend for a run in the Mr. /co/lympus tournaments, specifically his one berth in 2019, where he received a 115th seed during a celebration of his 100th anniversary. While he was swiftly eliminated in a cat fight with 2020 winner Tom Cat, he did make an impact in terms of tournament discussion. He was in contention for a slot in the 2020 tournament, but ultimately fell a few votes short. Felix has not qualified for any Mr. /co/lympus tournaments since.
He has also appeared in one Tag-Team Tournament, where he paired with fellow centenarian Koko the Clown in 2019 to form the 100th Anniversary Boys. This team lost the first round to Samurai Jack and Johnny Bravo. There was also a weird arc in the 2020 tournament after he missed out on being paired with Oswald we don't discuss that.
