Comments

From Jerry Edwards : My copy has no live action. The three bears are making home brew, each with their own still. The baby bear tastes his brew - it's missing HOPS. He goes to a local swimming hole to try to capture frogs. After no success, he finally decides to use a butterfly net to capture the "HOP" sound effects as he chases the frog. Alice and Julius the cat have a flat tire on a scooter. Julius blows a smoke ring from his pipe to replace the flat tire. They enter the bears' house and are chased by the baby bear. Julius and the bear fight, with Julius winning - until Mom and Dad show up. They chase off Julius and toss Alice in a sack. They throw the sack on a sawmill track - with the sack moving towards a saw blade. Julius sends his 9 lives to fight the bears. The bears clobber all the 9 lives, but Julius uses home brew to bring back #9. Strengthened by the brew, #9 clobbers the bears. #9 merges with Julius and Julius rescues Alice. Alice shouts "My Hero!" and kisses Julius.
