Storyline

Alice and her friends put on a show. After a brief overture, act one: A saloon; Alice enters, and shoots down two bad guys. Tubby O'Brien and his gang then enter the audience; Alice's cast leaves out of fear. Alice decides to tell stories of her wild west adventures, and we finally get two brief animated sequences: Alice riding atop a stagecoach, shooting at Indians, and Alice as Sheriff, taking care of a bad guy who steals a safe. The overall feel is much more like an Our Gang short than the rest of the Alice series. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

not much animation, but cute overall
28 August 2001 | by See all my reviews

It's pretty clear that live action was much easier for Walt to film than animation. It's used very sparingly, albeit effectively. Alice and her friends are putting on a wild west show. Alice recounts stories of her cowboy exploits, and it's only these adventures that are briefly animated. But the animation quality is excellent, the story is clever, and Alice is, as always, just too adorable.
