Storyline

Alice is dancing aboard her ship with a veritable zoo of a crew. Meanwhile, in the galley, the chef (a cat) is preparing food while his assistant, a mouse, is peeling potatoes. When the chef complains that they need eggs, the mouse is enlisted to retrieve them from the crow's nest. The birds there give him a rough time, but he's eventually able to capture one and strong-arm three eggs out of it. When he returns, though, he finds the chef now wants some milk, and so he's off to find the ship's goat, with similar comedic results. Written by jjwbenso

Not very good.
13 August 2012 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

This is one of the last Alice comedies from Walt Disney. After making about 50 of these live action/cartoon films, Walt and his animators soon switched to making Mickey Mouse cartoons. Considering the poor quality of this film, it was about time to make a change. While I love the earlier Alice films this one just isn't very entertaining.

Lois Hardwick stars as Alice--one of several kids who played this title role. She and her friends, the animals, are aboard a whaling ship. Much of the time, the film has little to do with whales and consists of some sadistic adventures of a Mickey Mouse-like creature as he tortures animals. Later, they see whales and the film VERY abruptly ends. Could the ending have vanished over the years or was it meant to end this way, I have no idea. All I know is that it really isn't very funny and left me cold.
