Cat Out of the Bag Alert! This review contains some spoilers for this film!
Synopsis: Felix the Cat is recruited as a babysitter by a fed up father.
Cartoon Cat: The cartoon begins with Felix trying to get some fish from a fish store. He is kicked out by the proprietor.
Spotting a barrel outside which reads “Fresh Today,” Felix tries his luck at fishing. Unfortunately all he gets is a crab pinching his tail.
On the verge of starvation, a frustrated father hears Felix’s cries and makes him a proposition. If Felix will watch the baby, the father will give him a good meal.
Felix entertains the tot by playing with a ball.
Next Felix blows up a balloon but the kid cries, wanting to play with it.
Felix gives the balloon to the baby but the tot puts it in his mouth and ends up blown up like a balloon. The kid then floats away.
Felix chases the floating baby until a bird pops him and he falls back into the baby buggy.
Leaving to get some candy, Felix comes back to find the baby has gotten into a daycare center. Now he can’t tell which kids is the right one!
Felix uses the candy to lure the right baby back to the house.
Unfortunately Felix doesn’t realize that all of the babies have followed him. Needless to say the father is quite surprised!
The father faints and Felix uses the candy cane to pop open an umbrella and float away.
Final Mewsings: Felix could get a candy cane handled umbrella but no food?
