Storyline

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 grantss

Trivia

The concept art of the film was provided by artist Mary Blair (1911-1978) who also worked in several other Disney animated films of the 1940s and 1950s. Her art for the film used bold and unreal colors, and was much different than John Tenniel's original illustrations. Walt liked the concept and used it. Art and animation historians have credited Blair with introducing Modernist art to the Disney films. See more »

Goofs

Just before the flowers sing "All in the Golden Afternoon", we see an orange dandelion tuning up. Between him are two other dandelions, one purple one on the left, and one red one on the right. Two shots later, when the scat-singing begins, the two dandelions have switched places. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Alice's sister: [reading from a history book] "... leaders, and had been of late much accustomed to usurpation and conquest. Edwin and Morcar, the Earls of Mercia and Northumbria, declared for him: and even Stigand..." Alice.
[camera zooms out to show Alice sitting in a tree, playing with Dinah and making a crown of daisies]
Alice: Hmm? Oh, I'm listening.
Alice's sister: "And even Stigand, the archbishop of Canterbury, agreed to meet with William and offer him the crown. William's conduct at first was moderate."

Alternate Versions

A 1987 airing on NBC made the following cuts:
  • 1) Alice's song "In a World of My Own".
  • 2) After Alice left the Caucus race, there was a commercial break. Following the break, the film picked up at the garden of live flowers scene. This means that the scene with Tweedledum and Tweedledee and the Walrus and the Carpenter and the scene in the White Rabbit's house were cut.
  • 3) The Cheshire Cat's first scene is cut, meaning that his first appearance is not until after the Tulgey Woods scene.
  • 4) Several of the creatures in the Tulgey Woods scene are removed, as is the song "Very Good Advice".
  • 5) The entire trial sequence is cut, going from the croquet game straight to the final chase.

The best Disney cartoon, by far
1 August 2005 | by thedreamingSee all my reviews

Among all the Disney cartoons I have seen (and I think I've probably seen them all, until "Taram...", in 1983), "Alice in Wonderland" remains my favorite one. Of course, it has a lot of differences, comparing to the wonderful book from Lewis Carroll, but Walt Disney managed to give a strange object, without a real classical story (with a starting and an ending), which gives this film a funny "experimental side"... And I particularly love the beautiful colors in this film. It simply makes you want to follow Alice, who follows herself the White Rabbit, in the wonderland. Maybe "Alice in Wonderland" is more an "adult cartoon".
