Storyline

Julius the cat is skating on a pond when he espies a young lady break through the ice. He saves her, only to realize she's not particularly attractive, and so throws her back. Meanwhile, a kitten orphan is left in a basket by the side of the pond; Julius discovers it and takes it skating with him, afterward taking it home to Alice. They name him Oscar, and Julius tries to give the brat a bath. He then feeds Oscar and teaches him some table manners. Written by jjwbenso

Weak entry.
12 July 1999 | by See all my reviews

This entry has many more elaborate background paintings than most previous Alice comedies. It is also my least favourite. I'm a fan of the series and I understand that the Disney humour in those days was very tentative. But it was hard for me to stomach a scene where Julius actually MURDERS a female cat he originally saved from drowning just because, well, once he got a good look at her he saw she was ugly. To me that tainted the cartoon.

Outside of that, the animation is good and the sets are elaborate, but once again we're cut off in an abrupt ending and only see about 10 seconds of Alice. Avoid the "sonorised" version at all costs.
