Storyline

Alice and Julius, as a team, are one of four entrants in a $10,000 balloon race. The bad guy takes out one balloon quickly. It's not clear what kind of balloons these are, since they are sealed like hydrogen/helium balloons, but a good thwack on the top by the bad guy sends Alice and Julius plummeting to the ground, balloon still intact. Julius makes some attempts to re-launch, but they fail. He spots a hippo, smoking nearby, and has an idea: using some pepper, he creates a massive sneeze that re-launches them. But he wasn't onboard. Alice throws down a rope ladder, but it isn't anchored; Julius eventually pulls himself up with a rope. They are then immediately under attack by a lightning storm, which deflates the balloon. Julius makes substitutes from, first, a weiner dog and a couple of empty thought balloons, then, an elephant with extra air pumped in. He grabs a passing bird and catches up to the bad guy, then finds himself in another battle with lightning. He throws a bolt at the... Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

Alice's Balloon Race (1926)

*** (out of 4)

There's a balloon race that is paying the winner $10,000 so Alice and her beloved cat Julius join but once there they realize Pete is in it too. The race is off to a fast start when a battle breaks out between Julius and Pete. ALICE'S BALLOON RACE isn't the best in the series and it contains very few laughs but it's still worth viewing thanks to some great animation and a good bit of imagination. I say a good bit of imagination because once the race gets going things are actually very fun and especially when the two rivals enter a thunderstorm and have to deal with various clouds, rain and of course lightning. Fans of the series will enjoy the back and forth battle between the two and there's no doubt that the animation is done to the highest level.
