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.

It's the Cheshire Cat! Oh, hello, Cheshire Cat.

This is perhaps one of the few better adaptions of Mr. Caroll's story,besides the French version of 1952(?) and the lesser-known Jim Henson version in 1983.It stays on track on the original storyline and humour,unlike the 1951 Disney version,which was too sugary and the new 1999 version,which had famous actors,but no talent.
Oh,and it wasn't afraid to be dark either,such as that Jabberwocky and some of those weird shape-shifting people of wonderland.
