Pete's debut
13 May 2001 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

This is the first appearance of Pete, the villain of the Disney shorts. Pete is the oldest of all the "modern" Disney characters. He first started off as a bear and later evolved into a cat. In this short, Pete (who is named Bootleg Pete) is a collector of rare crossword puzzles and Alice's puzzle is missing in his collection. Pete of course tries to get Alice to give him her crossword puzzle, but Julius the cat comes and sends Pete gliding over the sea and landing onto a buoy after a fight. Alice finally solves the puzzle by filling in THE END. I am not too interested in the silent era of Disney's animation, but I do enjoy the Alice Comedies more from a historical perspective.
