Whys and Otherwise (1927)
Felix the Cat comes home after a night of drunken revelry at a nightclub. His wife, wielding a rolling pin, waits up for him. Felix tries to explain why he came home late with three ludicrous tales. First, a con man tricks him out of his paycheck by selling him a fur coat that proves to have a live bear inside of it. Next, Felix buys his wife some candy from a gift shop. A mugger steals it from him, discovers it’s only candy, and kicks it over a cliff. Felix chases after it, but the candy falls into the sea. Felix swims after it and ends up on a ship as a storm sets in. Finally, Felix tries to explain a tell-tale blonde hair on his shoulder by claiming to have fought with a lion.
