Vavoom From Felix The Cat

I was in a restaurant with my wife celebrating our anniversary and there was a table with kids. All were well mannered but one kid was just so loud I said he reminded me of the cartoon character Vavoom which gave me the inspiration for this post.

Vavoom was an Inuit (Alaskan indigenous person) on the Felix the Cat cartoon who used his voice to get them out of situations, like blasting rocks away in this video.

I grew up watching Felix The Cat on the Saturday morning cartoons. Surprisingly Felix The Cat only ran from 1958 to 1960 for a total of 126 episodes. CBS revived in the 90’s from 1995 to 1997 under the name The Twisted Tales of Felix the Cat for just 21 episodes.

Did you ever give someone the nickname Vavoom. Please tell!

  1. Growing up Vavoom was my favorite cartoon character. I never forgot him. Only Felix understood him. He did so much good but this was often overshadowed due to his ” big mouth” and inability to express himself to societal standards.
    Same as me. I have a large voice and at times let that be known, all the whilst helping many family, friends,and strangers to the detriment of myself.
    I had tattooed the Vavoom character (the red VAVOOM google image) on my entire left inner forearm with Vavoom yelling ” VAVOOM ” at me.
