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>

Puss in Boots was another entertaining pre-Mickey Mouse cartoon by Walt Disney
6 May 2008 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

Just discovered this early Walt Disney pre-Mickey Mouse Laugh-O-Grams cartoon on Cartoon Brew as linked from Matinée At The Bijou which linked it to YouTube. It's a modern day-in-the-'20s retelling with the cars and of-the-period clothing plus a matinée showing of the latest Rudolf Vaselino flick. With the King not allowing the commoner young man or his female cat to see his daughter or the cat chauffeur James, young Puss tries to get her master to get her boots to impress James but to no avail until after the movie when she gets him to buy them as exchange for telling him what to do to impress the King. Since the picture was about bullfighting, that's what the young man tries to do...While a little primitive with comic strip balloons to tell us what the characters are saying since this is silent, even this early in his career Disney provides quite a few visual gags that keep this entertaining to the present day. My favorite comes when the inter-title says "Time flies by" while clocks with wings float on screen! Also, when the King gets shocked, his coat flies off! Well worth seeing for vintage cartoon fans, particularly those of Walt Disney.
