Storyline

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.

Trivia

After filming had commenced, CBS and Irwin Allen decided to add Gillian Lynne to the production, as choreographer replacing Miriam Nelson. As the choreographer of the Andrew Lloyd Webber musical "Cats," the addition of Gillian Lynn was considered a technical credit improving the productions' credentials. Cameo guest celebrities were expected to report for their day of filming at four a.m. to the MGM studio rehearsal hall. The choreographer greeted each performer and rehearsed a few dance moves, steps, twirls, slides, staging what he or she would perform for camera. The celebrity would then report to stage, meeting Irwin Allen, Harry Harris (Director), and Fred J. Koenekamp (Cinemaphotographer); rehearsing, walking through their routine, what they had learned that morning on the set. Afterwards, off to wardrobe for their costume, and to makeup, reporting back to stage to film their segment. Usually each cameo appearance was staged, rehearsed, and filmed the same day, finishing their guest spot. See more »

Quotes

[the disembodied head of the Cheshire Cat appears]
Alice: It's the Cheshire Cat! Oh, hello, Cheshire Cat.
Cheshire Cat: Hello. How do you like the Queen?
Alice: Not at all. I don't like that of losing my head. Would you?
Cheshire Cat: I could hardly afford that.

a delight!
2 January 2005 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I love this version of Alice in wonderland, because of the jaberwalkie. this movie has a dark sinister undertone running through, which Alice and wonderland should have. when I was young it always gave me weird feeling and I loved it because it scared me in a way most movies had never achieved before. It was "trippy" and fun and interesting all at the same time. The songs are o.k. but the story is divine! Carol Channing's character made me really weirded out. This is the way Alice was meant to be, confusing, a little scary and amusing rolled into one a must see a real winner! a+ if you want to treat yourself to something fun and special this version of Alice in wonderland is an instant crowd pleaser, I mean I could just go on and on but you should just watch it for yourselves.
