With the help of a smooth talking tomcat, a family of Parisian felines set to inherit a fortune from their owner try to make it back home after a jealous butler kidnaps them and leaves them in the country.
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
The minor character Pat the gardener is omitted from the film and his role is taken up by the Dodo. Pat seems to be a stereotypical Irishman in the novel as implied by his dialogue. The name is short for "Patrick", a Latin-derived name popular in Ireland. See more »
In the opening credits, the name of the first "Alice" book is given as "The Adventures of Alice in Wonderland" rather than "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland". See more »
[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]
Hmm? Oh, I'm listening.
"And even Stigand, the archbishop of Canterbury, agreed to meet with William and offer him the crown. William's conduct at first was moderate."

A 1987 airing on ABC 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 was cut, meaning that his first appearance was not until after the Tulgey Woods scene.
4) Several of the creatures in the Tulgey Woods scene were removed, and so was the simultaneous song "Very Good Advice".
5) The entire trial sequence was cut, going from the croquet game straight to the final chase.
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
