This Alice Comedies Short is Unlike the others as this episode features very little animation and takes place almost entirely in live action. There is also a bit of a racial overtone about this episode that some have debated whether is a “parody” of racism, or just a sign of the times. Since there is a sense of making fun of some major groups and ideas of racism many believe it was shining a light on something many did not want to talk about. Watch for yourself and decide.
