Weak entry.
12 July 1999 | by Cristian-3See all my reviews

This entry has many more elaborate background paintings than most previous Alice comedies. It is also my least favourite. I'm a fan of the series and I understand that the Disney humour in those days was very tentative. But it was hard for me to stomach a scene where Julius actually MURDERS a female cat he originally saved from drowning just because, well, once he got a good look at her he saw she was ugly. To me that tainted the cartoon.

Outside of that, the animation is good and the sets are elaborate, but once again we're cut off in an abrupt ending and only see about 10 seconds of Alice. Avoid the "sonorised" version at all costs.
