Felix's Nightmare Monster

Dream sequences give good cartoonists a chance to use their imaginations, and “Felix Dines and Pines” is no exception. Felix has a nightmare after eating a bunch of garbage. Immediately, some monster comes after him.

The monster stands there and his dots and eyes change. Here’s the sequence.

See the white along the legs in the last two frames? It continues in a cycle as well to give the impression the legs (and the white stuff on whatever’s dropping from the monster’s fingers) that it’s moving like ribbons of neon.

I don’t know whether Otto Messmer drew this or a “guest animator” did, but it’s one of the best of the whole Felix series.
