The Twisted Tales of Felix the Cat (called The New Adventures of Felix the Cat before release, which has led to it sometimes being referred to as The Twisted Adventures of Felix the Cat) is an animated series starring the classic animated character Felix the Cat, produced for television by Film Roman from September 9, 1995 to November 25, 1997, and broadcast on CBS. It starred Thom Adcox-Hernandez as the voice of Felix. Later on, he was replaced by Charlie Adler.

It was not the first Felix the Cat series produced for television; that title is claimed by one done in 1958 by Otto Messmer's former assistant, Joe Oriolo. Joe's son, Don Oriolo, also became part of the effort, and was involved in creation of this series as well.

This series, in many ways, reverts back to the silent era shorts, with surreal settings and offbeat character depictions. Felix is also more like his original mischievous adult form, rather than the young and innocent depiction from the 30's, 50's and 1988 film Who Framed Roger Rabbit. It does, however, contain some elements from the 50's series such as Felix's Magic Bag of Tricks and the character Poindexter.

The executive producer of this series was Phil Roman and the producer was Timothy Berglund. It is reputed to have been one of the most expensive cartoons ever made by Film Roman.[1]

The main theme was composed by Don Oriolo. The musical score and closing theme was composed and performed by the Club Foot Orchestra (Gino Robair, musical director; Deirdre McClure, conductor).

A number of the episodes have been released on video by BMG Video and Universal Studios Home Entertainment, and thirteen have been posted to YouTube. Several VCD's and DVD's worth of episodes were at some point available in Hong Kong under the title The Twisted Tales of Felix the Cat II.
