Storyline

Alice visits an animation studio, where the animators show her various scenes on their drawing boards. A few of them: a cat dancing to a cat band; a mouse poking at a (live) cat until it moves; a couple mice boxing, while the animators crowd around cheering and acting as corner-men. That night, she dreams of taking a train to cartoon-land, where a red carpet reception awaits. She appears in live action. They have a welcoming parade, with Alice riding on an elephant. The cartoons dance for her, and she dances for them. Meanwhile, the lions break out of the zoo. The lions chase her into a hollow tree, then into a cave and down a rabbit hole. Finally, she jumps off a cliff and awakes back in her bed. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

Kind of dumb, but not too bad for the start of Disney's career
13 May 2000 | by See all my reviews

Contrary to popular belief, the Disney industry was not started with that famous mouse we all know and love. It was actually started by a little girl named Alice (portrayed by Virginia Davis). This was one of the earliest uses of live action and animation. I remember seeing this short on Vault Disney. I was interested in seeing some of Disney 's early shorts that he produced. I really did not care for this one. The Alice shorts had lasted for about four more years, with Disney constantly replacing young actresses for the role of Alice.
