Storyline

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

Love In A Hatbox

A Walt Disney Cartoon.

JOHNNIE FEDORA AND ALICE BLUEBONNET fall in love while for sale in the window of a fancy shop. Quickly separated by different owners, Johnnie begins an almost impossible search for Alice throughout New York City.

This poignant little film, originally a segment of MAKE MINE MUSIC (1946), is full of charm & spunk. The Disney animators have achieved the seemingly impossible - making the viewers sincerely care about the romantic fate of a couple of hats. The Andrews Sisters make the perfect singing narrators.

Walt Disney (1901-1966) was always intrigued by pictures & drawings. As a lad in Marceline, Missouri, he sketched farm animals on scraps of paper; later, as an ambulance driver in France during the First World War, he drew comic figures on the sides of his vehicle. Back in Kansas City, along with artist Ub Iwerks, Walt developed a primitive animation studio that provided animated commercials and tiny cartoons for the local movie theaters. Always the innovator, his ALICE IN CARTOONLAND series broke ground in placing a live figure in a cartoon universe. Business reversals sent Disney & Iwerks to Hollywood in 1923, where Walt's older brother Roy became his lifelong business manager & counselor. When a mildly successful series with Oswald The Lucky Rabbit was snatched away by the distributor, the character of Mickey Mouse sprung into Walt's imagination, ensuring Disney's immortality. The happy arrival of sound technology made Mickey's screen debut, STEAMBOAT WILLIE (1928), a tremendous audience success with its use of synchronized music. The SILLY SYMPHONIES soon appeared, and Walt's growing crew of marvelously talented animators were quickly conquering new territory with full color, illusions of depth and radical advancements in personality development, an arena in which Walt's genius was unbeatable. Mickey's feisty, naughty behavior had captured millions of fans, but he was soon to be joined by other animated companions: temperamental Donald Duck, intellectually-challenged Goofy and energetic Pluto. All this was in preparation for Walt's grandest dream - feature length animated films. Against a blizzard of doomsayers, Walt persevered and over the next decades delighted children of all ages with the adventures of Snow White, Pinocchio, Dumbo, Bambi & Peter Pan. Walt never forgot that his fortunes were all started by a mouse, or that childlike simplicity of message and lots of hard work always pay off.
