From Per Nilsson : This is a lovely cartoon with several surprising gags. One example is the fireman rescuing the people in a burning house by pulling them out from the window and dropping them on the ground. But perhaps it wasn't even meant as a joke! Another one is the solution to the problem with the ladder not reaching the burning house, simply push the house closer. Why didn't I think of that!

Alice herself makes a very brief appearance in this cartoon. Her contribution is mostly waving her arms and stomping her feet. I feel that Disney at this time already had given up on the integration of a human in a cartoon land. And I really don't understand how Disney got away with a character so similar to Felix the Cat. I cannot see any difference at all between Julius and Felix.

I wish more films from the silent area were broadcasted. I think this cartoon still would be appreciated by more then the pure fans if it was shown today on TV, I sure would.
