Alice is a daydreaming young girl. She finds learning poems and listening to literature boring. She prefers stories with pictures and to live inside her imagination. One day, while enduring just such a poetry reading, she spots a large white rabbit...dressed in a jacket and carrying a large watch. He scurries off, saying he's late, for a very important date. She follows him through the forest. He then disappears down a rabbit hole. Alice follows, leading her to all manner of discoveries, characters and adventures. Written by
The character Mock Turtle from the original novel is a chimera-like creature with parts from multiple animals. The name is based on the dish "mock turtle soup", popular in the Victorian era, which substitutes turtle meat with calf's meat. See more »
Just before the flowers sing "All in the Golden Afternoon", we see an orange dandelion tuning up. Between him are two other dandelions, one purple one on the left, and one red one on the right. Two shots later, when the scat-singing begins, the two dandelions have switched places. See more »

Among all the Disney cartoons I have seen (and I think I've probably seen them all, until "Taram...", in 1983), "Alice in Wonderland" remains my favorite one. Of course, it has a lot of differences, comparing to the wonderful book from Lewis Carroll, but Walt Disney managed to give a strange object, without a real classical story (with a starting and an ending), which gives this film a funny "experimental side"... And I particularly love the beautiful colors in this film. It simply makes you want to follow Alice, who follows herself the White Rabbit, in the wonderland. Maybe "Alice in Wonderland" is more an "adult cartoon".
