Storyline

Alice and Julius are going to stage a bullfight. Their bull is a broken-down old cow. They fix it up with some rollerskates. A family of cats uses a see-saw to catapult themselves over the fence; a cop (dog) spots them, but ends up helping them by accident. Julius replaces the bull with a more presentable one from a tobacco billboard for the introduction to the crowd. Alice fights the sad cow, sending her into a cactus; this makes her mad enough to really fight. Time for another swap: Julius dresses as a pantomime cow, and Alice throws him across the ring...

Alice the Toreador (1925)

*** (out of 4)

Another entry in Disney's "Alice" series has Alice and Julius entering a bullfight but they exchange the bull for an old cow. They put some roller skates on it but things don't turn out too well. I believe this is my fifth or sixth film from this series and I must admit that I think they're very underrated in terms of early animation. I'm sure these have their good amount of fans out there but more people should really check them out. The mixture of animation with the live action Alice makes for some very nice stuff but comedy is what the film really goes for and there's plenty of that. The best moment happens when Julius tries to sneak some baby cats into the fight but gets busted by a cop.
