Alice Comedies Drawing - Alice's Circus Daze

For the first time on the Vintage Disney Alice blog I'm going back to the silent days of Walt's involvement with Alice in Wonderland to the very first cartoons produced at Walt Disney Studios.  While the association with Alice in Wonderland was tenuous at best even in the first cartoon Alice's Wonderland, nevertheless it remains a part of vintage Disney Alice in my mind.  Here we have a drawing from an Alice Comedy called Alice's Circus Daze.  How cool is this?
There is a notation on the back that says "Alice's Circus Daze - Rubber Man SC", so off I merrily ran to YouTube!
While the video quality is pretty crappy, you can make out the various different figures in the audience from the above drawing.  You can also see that the drawing was reversed to create the left side of the audience.  Pretty tricky for 1927.
You can  watch Alice's Circus Daze in it's entirety on YouTube.
