Animation Cosplay, 1926

The caption of this picture says it all. It’s from the Motion Picture News, March 20, 1926. If nothing else, it gives you a good idea of the huge popularity of Felix in the mid-‘20s. Within a couple of years, he was shoved aside by a Mr. M. Mouse employed by a Mr. W.E. Disney.

  1. Knowing Twenties-era Felix, it was a "shotgun wedding". Wonder if those are the happy couple's love children to the bride's left?

    Note the victorious preacher behind the pulpit. Community decency standards upheld at last!
