Born in the small village of Roccacasale, Italy. Felix was trained as a circus performer before he came to the United States in 1955 and toured with the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus.
His multiple talents as a bareback rider, trapeze artist and tumbler brought him to Hollywood, where he became a stuntman, starting with the Gig Young-Shirley Jones vehicle, A Ticklish Affair.
Best-known roles are Litvak, the maniacal, miniature Hitler who menaces George Segal in The Black Bird (his favourite role), and Cousin Itt on the TV show The Addams Family.
Felix was also responsible for the physical performance of the robot Twiki in the TV series Buck Rogers in the 25th Century, a role for which the voice was supplied by Mel Blanc or Bob Elyea. In part due to his short stature of 1.19 m (3 ft 11 in), he has often doubled for children in such movies as The Towering Inferno, The Hindenburg, and Battlestar Galactica.
Between movies, he frequently appears in Las Vegas and Reno night clubs with his own musical combo, The Original Harmonica Band.
