Duck Shoes

Want a gag out of nowhere from Walt Disney? We’ll go back to the silent days for one. It all started with a girl. And a Felix knock-off.

In Alice’s Mysterious Mystery (1926), our heroine and Julius the cat are detectives. Even their car gets into it, sniffing footprints like a dog.

Aha! They come across an end to the trail. A duck is sitting there, and gets ignored when it senses Alice looking it.

Surprise! The footprint belong to the duck, who is wearing shoes. It struts off rather indignantly, and out of the cartoon.

Disney gets credit in “A Winkler Production.” All “Winkler” did was release it.

  1. Alice's investigation is so weak, she literally doesn't have a leg to stand on (in a couple of the frames, anyway).
