While Alice is away, her cat is guarding the house. He chases one pesky rat inside the house, and shoots a hole in the floor, which he falls through, into a vat of home-brew. With the cat thus away, the rats play, at first dancing and singing, and later playing in the bathtub. The cat eventually sobers up (after he lands in a cactus), and tries to blow up the rats (and house!) with a bomb, but the rats plant the bomb on the cat, who blows up himself, Alice, and several nearby trees.

Alice Rattled by Rats (1925)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

Fun entry in the series has Alice leaving her home and telling Julius to keep an eye on it. Sure enough, as soon as she leaves a large group of rats show up to have some fun and it's up to the cat to try and get them out of the house. ALICE RATTLED BY RATS certainly isn't the best film in the series but it contains enough good moments to make it worth viewing for fans. I think the highlight is just the frantic speed at which that rats are running around the house and causing all of the trouble. The problem with all of it is that none of it is overly funny and in the end that's the most damaging thing to the picture. Still, the animation is good as is the early live action.
