Felix Doubles for Darwin, 1924

Produced by Pat Sullivan Cartoons for M. J. Winkler

Synopsis

A famished Felix reads an advertisement telling of a large reward for anyone that can give proof for the theory of evolution. He hurries to South Africa via Transatlantic Cable and interacts with the local animals. He angers a troop of monkeys by telling them why he’s there (they’re offended he would suggest they could be related to humans) and they chase him back through the cable to America.

Note: This is a silent film. Music has been added to mimic the experience of the film patron in 1924.

This film is in the public domain in Australia.
