FELIX THE CAT - THE SMOKE SCREAM
An old man is smoking a pipe. His wife hates the smoke and throws the pipe away. Felix fills the gramophone horn with coal so that he can smoke that instead. Smelling the fumes, his wife goes into a mad rage and throws the new pipe away. The old man falls asleep. The sun shines on his spectacles and starts a fire in his beard. The smoke alerts his wife who angrily fights with him for smoking again. Felix empties the goldfish bowl on him to douse the flames. The man runs off, his beard still on fire. Felix goes to the Fire House and rings the bell. The fireman are sleeping so Felix drives the Fire Engine himself. The man has entered a tower block and smoke comes out of the windows. The occupants think the building is on fire. Felix uses his tail as a fire hose. The people escape. The last woman jumps from a window and Felix puts down a mattress to catch her. The springs are so strong she bounces back into the building. Felix braves the thick smoke inside to find her. He re-emerges with the man who's beard is on fire and throws him in the lake. Unfortunately, Felix's tail then catches fire and he runs off mewing.
