Storyline

The Three Bears are busy cooking when Baby Bear realizes his recipe requires hops. Naturally his first inclination is to go find some frogs to provide for him his hops, so he runs off and pursues a frog at the local pond. In the meantime Alice and her cat stumble upon the Three Bears' house and sneak inside (Ma and Pa Bear are nowhere to be seen). Baby Bear returns and gets into a fight with the cat, and then calls in his parents to help out. The cat is defeated and the bears make off with Alice, who they throw in a sack and tie to a sawmill. When the cat revives, he calls in reinforcements: his nine lives, who take on the Three Bears and eventually lose. The cat gets another idea: he liquors up one of his nine lives, who is then able to take on all three bears at once. Pleased with himself, the cat hurries into the mill to rescue Alice, who proclaims him her hero. Written by jjwbenso

This is NOT "The Three Bears" you read as a child! However, despite the current low rating, it's very, very good.
28 April 2012 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This cartoon is among Walt Disney's earliest--though few today would know about these Alice cartoons--assuming his animation career began with "Steamboat Willie" and Mickey Mouse!

When this Disney cartoon begins, it's VERY obvious it's NOT based that closely on the original story! You find Baby Bear trying to mix up a batch of illegal alcohol (it was during Prohibition after all). The recipe included shellac, paint remover, nails and an old inner tube--but he then realizes he need hops! How he gets hops is pretty cute. Soon, Alice and her cat come onto the scene and Baby Bear and the cat get into a fight. Soon, Mommy and Daddy Bear arrive and things look bad for Alice and the cat. So what happens next? See this one for yourself--it's VERY clever.
