  • Description

    Animation. By Pat Sullivan. Felix the cat walks along looking dejected. He is hungry. Hearing music he looks through a window to see a man eating soup and singing. Felix attempts to grab a cooked chicken off the dinner table with his tail but the man spots him and throws the pepper pot at him. Felix throws pepper through the window which makes the man sneeze. The chicken flies out of the window by the power of his sneeze and Felix catches it. He sticks out his tongue at the man. As he prepares to eat the chicken a snake appears. Felix is spooked. The snake swallows the chicken whole. Felix is annoyed. He walks along until he comes to a barber's shop. A man who has only one hair sticking out of his head says to the barber: "I want my hair parted in the middle". The barber shakes his head. Felix appears and jumps onto the back of the barber's chair. He brandishes a razor (the man is understandably worried). He slices the hair in two and parts it for the customer. The man is very pleased with his new look and gives the barber lots of money. The barber offers some to Felix. Felix refuses and points to his open mouth (he wants food). A child is crying outside the barber's shop. His father gives him a stick of stripy rock to stop him bawling. He throws it on the floor because he sees the barber's pole and says: "I want that one!". The father attempts to pull the pole from the ground. The barber brings Felix a bucket of milk which he devours and then licks his lips. Felix spots the man stealing the pole. The barber feels that he is "ruined" now the pole has gone. Felix sets off to find another pole. He thinks of the North Pole and puts himself in an envelope addressed: "A. Eskimo, Iceland" and magically inserts himself into a post box. An Eskimo postman arrives at an igloo and posts letters through the box.

    A woman inside the igloo opens a letter and Felix slides out. She takes an axe out of the wall and attempts to injure Felix with it. He jumps into a bucket then changes into a broom. Felix goes outside and finds a pole. It turns out to be an Eskimo in a stripy coat. The Eskimo brandishes a knife and chases Felix with it. Felix slides down a slope and lands on the nose of a sea-lion. Felix does a few somersaults and is eventually thrown into the snow. He has a snowball fight with the sea-lion then upsets a polar bear which chases him to the North Pole. Felix runs up it and sits on the top. He spots a shark swimming below, produces a harpoon and throws it at the shark. He scores a direct hit and the shark swims off, pulling the top of the pole and Felix along with him. Felix rides the waves on his pole. He arrives back at the barber's shop and plants the pole in the hole. He paints a stripe on the pole. The barber is very pleased, they dance around the pole.
