Del Conca celebrates 100 years of Felix the Cat with #TheCatisBack
Created by Otto Messmer and Joe Oriolo, Felix The Cat made his on screen debut in 1919. As the first cartoon in the history of cinema to be animated, Felix is a pop icon of international fame. Happy, sullen, thoughtful, ironic and light-hearted, Felix comes to life with Del Conca.
The ceramic tile collection consists of two decorations: a vintage tribute titled “#RememberFelix”, where every piece tells a story and captures the nostalgic charm that has conquered Felix’s audience for a century. Each image reminds us of his ingenuity and do-it-yourself resourcefulness that has inspired generations of fans by making him a lovable anti-hero icon. The second tribute, “#TheCatisBack”, has a contemporary pop-inspired flair. In this tribute, Felix’s personality comes to life as he hides and reappears in the next illustration.
