Skateboarding as interpreted by pop culture and punk rock
Saturday, August 4, 2012
Felix catching some air from 1989. There are a lot of unusual things going on here, most notably the size of the nose bone on his deck. He's also wearing full pads but no helmet. Usually when cartoon characters skate they don't bother putting shoes on but Felix did. He also felt the need to put clothes on, and what he decided to wear was a powder blue wrestling onesie. All that aside, I've always liked this little dude. My friend gave him to me for my birthday in middle school after a visit to the dollar store. You don't see too many figures grabbing the deck. Felix not only racked up skate points, but also some punk points by serving as the mascot for The Queers.
