Cat Out of the Bag Alert! This review contains some spoilers for this film!
Synopsis: Felix the Cat steals some hot dogs from the butcher and gets a trip to the North Pole as a result.
Cartoon Cat: In the beginning of this short, Felix is starving.
He then spots some hot dogs hanging outside the butcher shop.
Being careful not to wake the butcher, Felix meows at the hot dogs and they bark back then chase him.
Felix corners the hot dogs in an old hollow log and shoots them, then feasts.
The butcher is fed up and sets a trap for Felix when he returns for more hot dogs.
Catching Felix in the box, the butcher throws it into the ocean. Felix finds himself at the sea bottom where he is swallowed by a fish.
The fish is caught in the Arctic by a surprised fisherman.
Felix has all kinds of problems from the locals. As he tries to catch fish, a penguin eats his tail. He replaces his tail with a handy question mark.
Felix chases the penguin and is then chased in turn by a seal.
While running away from the seal, Felix angers a polar bear.
Felix manages to climb to the top of what he calls the North Pole to escape. But the bear just knocks the whole thing down.
Felix then uses a couple of question marks to make skiis.
Escaping the polar bear on an iceberg, Felix drifts out to sea where he freezes.
Back at the shop, the butcher is enjoying his time free from Felix. He then receives a delivery of ice which melts, revealing the cat.
Felix then meows to the hot dogs and all of them follow him out of the shop.
Final Mewsings: Cats are persistant.
