Alice's journey to Wonderland begins with a shopping trip to London where she buys a dusty top-hat. Inside this hat she discovers Benny Bunny, a rabbit who escorts the little nosy girl to his rabbit-hole, invites her in, and off she goes to Wonderland. In this land of surprises Alice meets numerous strange and whimsical inhabitants.
I first saw this retro anime series when I was at least seven years old, when it aired here in Canada on TVO. I never missed an episode and thanks to the wonders of the Internet, I have recently rewatched the series and it was just as wonderful as I remember it being.
This series is by far more loyal to the original Carroll Lewis material than the Disney versions of either 1951 or 2010, though not without creative licensing being used. The animation is solid, the characters are colourful and memorable and for the most part, so is the writing though there are flubs here and there; for example, characters that have run into each other in one episode are introduced to another in an upcoming episode.
All in all, a superb show that I highly recommend to anyone!
