Classic tale of a girl named Alice who follows a white rabbit down a hole into Wonderland, where she can change sizes by eating and drinking and animals talk. After escaping the disturbing Queen of Hearts, she finds that she has ended up on the other side of the looking glass in Looking Glass Land and that there is a mind-created Jabberwocky after her. With the advice of a wise owl and royal chess pieces on her mind, she ventures home, vowing to grow up in this two-part movie which remains most faithful to the original stories written by Lewis Carroll.

The Jabberwock creature costume was designed by production designer Philip M. Jefferies very early in the production preparation. A description from Lewis Carrol provided the costume design: a body of a dragon, whiskers, fish-like head, insect antennae and pair of talon-like hands on both arms and wings, also serves as forelegs when it walks on ground. The costume was fabricated by Adam Hill and Tom McLaughlin at the Berman's Studios. When the creature costume was shown to Irwin Allen, McLaughlin wore it. Casting could find neither an actor nor a stunt man to fill the height matching McLaughlin height. Irwin decided McLaughlin was the "Jabberwock" and he performed the role from that point on. Interestingly, the set decorator had placed too large in scale furniture for Alice's interior study-library set, when the character first appears. The art director supervised the decorator's selection of size and scale of the furniture (chairs and tables) in order for the Jabberwocky performer to move around in the set. The Jabberwocky appears through out the production (as a figment of Alice's imagination) until at the end, back at home, the Jabberwocky disappears. The monster-creature was a terrific costume character. See more »

Twinkle, Twinkle Little Bat, How I wonder where you're at...
Wonderfully amazing portrayal of Alice in Wonderland. The cast was superb and the story telling was excellent. Of course it doesn't hurt that the Mock Turtle is played by none other than Ringo Starr. The only copy of this film that I have owned until recently was a tapped off T.V. version that was jumpy and horribly, tapped. But I can guarantee you that it has been watched countless times none the less. This film is great for all ages and is good fun for the whole family. Children of all ages will delight in this fun-filled adventure, from the crying baby that turns into a pig to Sally Struthers playing a loud mouthed Flower, it can't get any better. The First half of the 3 hour plus film, is the best part, but the giant chess board and underlying story in the second half is just as delightful. This film is sure to become a classic of my generation.
