Alice is a daydreaming young girl. She finds learning poems and listening to literature boring. She prefers stories with pictures and to live inside her imagination. One day, while enduring just such a poetry reading, she spots a large white rabbit...dressed in a jacket and carrying a large watch. He scurries off, saying he's late, for a very important date. She follows him through the forest. He then disappears down a rabbit hole. Alice follows, leading her to all manner of discoveries, characters and adventures.Written by
In the Disney film, the Cheshire Cat recites verses from "Jabberwocky", a poem by Lewis Carroll. The poem is one of Carroll's most popular works and precedes the Alice novels, written c. 1855. It was incorporated in the second Alice novel, "Through the Looking-Glass" (1871). See more »
During "The Walrus and the Carpenter", the appearance of the walrus' eyes is inconsistent between shots. Some shots have just little black dot eyes, while some shots have him with full pupils and colored eyes. See more »

My favourite of all the Disney animated movies and worth a look for any Disney fans.
For a lot of people on this site, this is either one of thew best Disney movies or one of the worst. There is about 40 animated Disney movies and my personal favourite will always be the mad world of Wonderland. I don't actually know why but to me this is what i always thought about as a child, a mad world where simply nothing made sense. It goes like dynamite at only seventy two minutes and in that they have an array of entertaining characters and fourteen entertaining songs. To me it is the genius of Disney creating an entertaining look at a child's world. I think it is because of the Jungle Book that this is not as popular as some of the Disney Classics but you can't help but smile when you watch the Queen of hearts and the Mad Hatter being their own creative self's in the wonder of this amazingly clever gem
