Storyline

A boy falls for a princess, his cat for hers. But her father does not like the idea of a commoner marrying a noblewoman and kicks him out. After seeing a Rudolpho Valensino movie at the local theater his cat has the idea that he could try impressing the king as bullfighter, to win his daughters hand. Bullfighting is relatively easy, when you can hypnotize the bull, but why does his cat need new boots ? Written by Stephan Eichenberg <eichenbe@fak-cbg.tu-muenchen.de>

Not bad for its time.

Walt Disney's first foray into animated cartoons began in 1922 with his Laugh-O-Grams Studio. While "Puss in Boots" isn't his first cartoon, it's among his very first. However, when you watch it there are two things to keep in mind. First, despite the title, this really isn't the fairy tale of "Puss in Boots". Disney often used titles of such stories as a GENERAL starting point but diverged from the stories quite a bit. Here, it's practically nothing like the old story. Second, although the cartoon seems rather naive, for 1922 it was quite good compared to other animated toons. Plus, they ALL were relatively crudely drawn, were in black & white and were silent.

As far as the story goes, there really isn't a lot of story. A young man is hanging out with the Princess. When the King notices, he tosses the guy and his poor kitty down the steps--out of the palace (leading to the best gag in the short--involving the cat and his 9 lives). Eventually, to impress the girl and her father, the cat concocts an idea involving a bullfight. As I said, it really has nothing to do with the story! Overall, a slightly better than average cartoon for its time. And, unlike later cartoons, these ones actually were animated, at least in part, by Walt himself--something he'd soon abandon in order to move more to the production and administration sides of animation.
