Storyline

After Alice is caught pulling a prank in class, she's sent to the corner with a dunce's cap, where she quickly grows tired and begins daydreaming. She imagines herself cavorting with various animals until they're all espied by her teacher, who immediately calls forth her book army to vanquish Alice and friends. After a lengthy chase, Alice defends herself by forming her animal friends into an army; the teacher retaliates using a cannon, and looks to be winning until the animals build their own cannon from a junk heap and fill it with pepper. The battle wages until Alice is awakened from her reverie and discovers she hasn't left her classroom after all. Written by jjwbenso

Big Set Up
17 December 2005 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

An extensive live set up goes into this early Alice short: our heroine is in a schoolroom where she gets into trouble and is made to sit in a corner with a dunce's cap on, whereupon she falls asleep and dreams of cartoonland. Spec O'Donnell is one of her classmates in the live sequence.

Other people commenting on this series have made claims that Alice was a 'groundbreaking' series combining, as it did, live action and animation. In actual fact, Fleischer's 'Out of the Inkwell' series had been in production for six years at this time and had much better production values and scripts. Nonetheless, it is a pleasure to see a print of this early Disney short on the newest Disney Treasures DVD. Take my advice and skip the Leonard Maltin introduction which apologizes for there actually being anything of interest here. Thanks for getting it out to us, Leonard. Worth seeing if you are a Disneyphile or interested in the history of animation.
