Treasures from Comic Con 2012 - Show Exclusives and Felix the Cat #Collecting #NYCC #Toys

Felix the Cat signed sketch by Don Oriolo and NYCC t-shirt
Felix the Cat was created as a cartoon character in the early 1920s by Otto Messmer. The comic strip was syndicated by King Features in 250 newspapers around the world. Felix is credited as the first animated television star when Messmer sold a paper mache doll to sit on camera for RCA's first experimental television transmissions in 1928.

In the 1950s, Joe Oriolo created the "talking" Felix animated cartoon series (and the character Casper the Friendly Ghost) with a new "long-legged" version of Felix that was approved by Messmer. Now, Joe's son, Don Oriolo is carrying on the work of his father. At the NYCC this year, Don was drawings sketches of Felix for the fans, and I picked up the very orange T-shirt. Felix the Cat Store sells action figures, and tons of other toys and games.
