We Are Out Of Ideas: Felix The Cat Returns

Felix the Cat has been bought by Dreamworks Animation. And who can blame them, cats are so hot right now.

Variety is reporting that Dreamworks has nabbed the rights to old-timey cartoon Felix the Cat. The announcement took place at the Licensing Expo in Las Vegas, which means this is just a purchase announcement and it doesn't necessarily mean there's going to be a new animated series tomorrow, but I wouldn't put it past them. Studio head Jeffrey Katzenberg was coy on their plans for the black and white kitty:

"Today, DreamWorks has acquired all rights to Felix the Cat," Katzenberg said. "Felix really goes beyond evergreen status and rises to something even more uncommon, as he is a true icon. We plan to make him one of the most desired fashion brands in the world."

Here's hoping he gets a gritty origin story.

So when is Fritz the Cat returning, maybe as an HBO series?
