Johnnie Fedora and Alice Bluebonnet are two hats who meet and fall in love in a department store display window in New York City. When Alice is purchased, Johnnie falls into a pit of despair. But when Johnnie finds an owner of his own, he is delighted at the prospect of being able to search the city for Alice from the top of his new owner's head. One day, Johnnie spots Alice! But in his excitement he is blown away by the wind. A seedy man finds Johnnie and wears him into a nightclub, where a fight breaks out. The man is taken away by the police and Johnnie is left behind. Johnnie is thrown out with the trash. Just as he is about to fall down a rain gutter, he is rescued by a carriage driver, who wants Johnnie as a hat for one of his horses. To Johnnie's delight, he is reunited with his sweetheart, Alice, who sits on the head of the carriage driver's other horse. Written by Melissa

A Different Kind of Love Story
1 October 2014 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

Originally part of the movie Make Mine Music, this cartoon was released later on its own as a theatrical short. It's a sweet love story, narrated through song by the Andrews Sisters. The story is about two hats in a shop window that fall in love but are separated when the female hat (Alice Bluebonnet) is sold. The male hat (Johnnie Fedora) is heartbroken. Eventually he is also sold and begins his search for his lost love from atop the head of his new owner. It's probably my favorite segment of Make Mine Music. I think it's an adorable, lovely cartoon with pretty animation. The angelic harmony of the Andrews Sisters is a huge plus. A must for fans of classic Disney and those who like a good love story.
