Life is Just a Bag of Tricks - Felix the Cat ... Felix the Cat debuted in 1919 making him one of the oldest cartoon characters, though still the dispute remains whether Felix was created by Pat Sullivan or Otto Messmer; the wonderful cartoon character with his big smile and the surreal situations he ends up in make him one of the most recognizable cartoon characters.
The first episode of Captain Pugwash aired on 22 October 1957. The children's animation was written, illustrated and produced by John Ryan. The bumbling Captain was brought to life by Peter Hawkins, who provided all the voices. The simple but beautifully crafted cartoon, with cut-out figures moved by cardboard levers, contributed to the overall charm of the programme, which is still fondly remembered years after it was last shown.
