No, but I was reading last night that she might make a north turn before heading back west though.

Ah ha! Someone else watched Sat cartoons too. I was telling my grandkids that we only had cartoons for a couple of hours on Sat morning and then we had to go outside. There was no 24 hour cable or color. They looked at me like “poor Granny”

Now you’ve done it.

Actally (a bit of TV history) Felix was the very first image transmitted by television by RCA in 1928. They uses a paper mache form. http://www.felixthecat.com/history.htm

As far as the cartoon goes, from Wikipedia:

“Oriolo went on to star Felix in 260 television cartoons distributed by Trans-Lux starting in 1958. Like the Van Beuren studio before, Oriolo gave Felix a more domesticated and pedestrian personality, geared more toward children, and introduced now-familiar elements such as Felix’s Magic Bag of Tricks, a satchel that could assume the shape and characteristics of anything Felix wanted. “

“The program is also remembered for its distinctive theme song written by Winston Sharples:”

“Felix the Cat,
The wonderful, wonderful cat!
Whenever he gets in a fix,
He reaches into his bag of tricks!”

“The show did away with Felix’s previous supporting cast and introduced many new characters. These include the sinister, mustachioed Professor; his intelligent but bookish nephew Poindexter (with an IQ of 222); the Professor’s bulldog-faced, bumbling sidekick Rock Bottom; an evil, cylindrical robot and “King of the Moon” named The Master Cylinder; and a small, unassuming and friendly Inuit named Vavoom, whose only vocalization is a literally earth-shattering shout of his own name.”

After reading this article, for the first time in many years I remember Poindexter and the Master Cylinder. Each cartoon was very short.

Looks like all the computer models are stuck on the last one’s track. Is Felix following a trail of bread crumbs?

Thanks for the audio. Now I can hum the Felix theme while I wait for Felix to dissipate into a little tropical storm. I like rain but not cane rain.

Tropical Storm Felix has formed near the South American

I play team trivia at a Brazilian restaurant so I'd like to know which South American to avoid. Is it Raoul? Pepe? Nothing personal you understand, I just don't want that guy's storm.

From the looks of the forecast track, we won't see any rain from Felix in the Tampa Bay area.
