My Favorite Version
6 February 2004 | by (Arizona) – See all my reviews

Alice in Wonderland has always been one of my favorite stories. I was surprised that this PBS version didn't have a higher rating. As a Lewis Carroll fan, I enjoyed this production because it so closely mirrors the book. Almost every line comes straight from the book, and both Alice in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass are told back to back. (Compared to the Disney movie that combines both of the stories and mixes them all out of order.) Even the sets and costumes use all of the John Tenniel's original sketches.

I recommend this production for anyone that sees Alice in Wonderland as more than just a children's story.
