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.

This was Irwin Allen's last television movie. After finishing "Alice in Wonderland" Irwin Allen began production on his next movie of the week titled "Outrage". After Irwin Allen completed the "Alice In Wonderland" for CBS, he started planning a similar special using "Pinocchio" as the basis for a musical CBS-TV special two hour feature. He was in preparation and working on this project at his untimely demise. See more »
The ending credits of both parts say (in order of appearance). In the Looking Glass Land half, the movie starts with the Jabberwocky in Alice's house going after Alice, but the credits have the Jabberwocky placed after Humpty Dumpty. The Jabberwocky should have been the first in the credits as it's an order of appearance format. See more »
Where's your ticket?
[searches her pockets]
I'm afraid I haven't got one. There wasn't a ticket office where I got on.
No excuses, please! You should have got one from the engine driver!

Gentleman in the Paper Suit:
He means the man that drives the engine also sells the tickets! You should have known that!

Ah, to be Alice, slipping through the Looking Glass to be the Princess of our Imaginations...
I wanted to be Alice. I wanted to wear cute little dresses and shiny black patent leather shoes. I wanted to dance with a caterpillar and float down a river of my own tears!!
This movie combines colors, music, imagery, and a lively cast to create the perfect children's movie. Every single cast member shone in their own light. Ann Jillian and Sammy Davis Jr. were my favorites!!
I can't imagine a film where the director spent more time focusing on the visual "smorgasbord" of colors and images!! The songs were easy to sing to, and Alice presented a lovely little girl who just wanted to be grown-up.
I hope that, someday, they replay this movie so that the children of the world can fall in love all over again with their imaginations. Anything they create today, anything they create TOMORROW will never even come close to the magic of this movie. This should be right up there with "The Wizard of Oz" in the children's movie section of your local video store.
