Comments

From Christian Redferne : This entry has many more elaborate sets than most previous Alice comedies. It is also my least favorite. I'm a fan of the series and I understand that the Disney humor in those days was very tentative. But it was hard for me to stomach a scene where Julius actually murders a female cat he originally saved from drowning just because, well, once he got a good look at her he saw she was ugly. To me that tainted the cartoon. Outside of that, the animation is good and the sets are elaborate, but once again we're cut off in an abrupt ending.
