Product Description:

Manufactured and distributed in 1960 by the Milton Bradley Company of Springfield, Massachusetts, the Felix the Cat Game is based on the cartoon character created during the silent film era of the 1920s. The anthropomorphic black cat with his black body, white eyes, and giant grin, coupled with the surrealism of the situations in which his cartoons place him, combine to make Felix one of the most recognized cartoon characters in film history. Felix was the first character from animation to attain a level of popularity sufficient to draw movie audiences.

Later, Felix cartoons began airing on American TV in 1953. Joe Oriolo introduced a redesigned, "long-legged" Felix, added new characters, and gave Felix a "Magic Bag of Tricks" that could assume an infinite variety of shapes at Felix’s behest. The cat has since starred in other television programs and in two feature films.

The object of the Felix the Cat Game is for young players to complete a picture puzzle of Felix. Puzzle pieces are obtained by matching the pictures of Felix’s friends on the spinner with those on the game board. This children’s game received approval and commendation from Parents’ Magazine and Good Housekeeping when it was released in the early 1960s.

The board game is in great vintage condition with minimal wear to the box and its playing pieces and spinner. The box bottom does have one split corner, however. And, the 22 puzzle pieces of Felix are a bit yellowed with age, and some have a few spots. Please review all accompanying photographs for condition issues.

Now more than 50 years later, the Felix the Cat Game still provides great fun for younger children and would make for a delightful gift for a child. For those who like nostalgia, enjoy the Felix the Cat character or collect vintage games, this board game would make for a delightful addition to such a collection.

Note: As part of the Spring Treasures Sale, the purchase of the Felix the Cat Game comes with a free $15 Dogbotz Boneyard gift certificate, which can be redeemed during a future purchase at our online store. The expiration date of the gift certificate is one year after purchase of this item.
