"[ANSWER ] What was the first balloon to ever take part in the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade?"

[Felix the Cat ]---ANSWER


Question: What was the first balloon to ever take part in the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade?




Answer:  Felix the Cat was a star of the silent film era and had a comic strip in newspapers around the nation when he made his Thanksgiving Day Parade debut in 1927, the first year the event featured cartoon character balloons. Without a plan to deflate this massive balloon, NYC parade organizers simply let Felix fly off into the sky. Unfortunately, the Felix the Cat balloon got caught in some telephone wires and caught fire. In 2016, after a nearly 90 year hiatus, Felix made a triumphant return to the parade. Mickey Mouse did not join the parade until 1934. Snoopy and Uncle Sam also came along in later years.
