Hello, darlings! - I think that the Queen of Hearts is an absolute scream.

(*Mad Hatter quote*) - "We're merrily celebrating your happy un-birthday!"

Apparently - When this animated, musical, fantasy/adventure film was initially released back in 1951 - It was quickly met with plenty of negative criticism for (get this!) being too "Americanized".

Well - My question regarding that is - What the hell did these high'n'mighty critics expect this kiddies picture to be since it was made by Americans in America? Eh? Like - Hello!?

Anyway - For the most part - I quite enjoyed this particular Disney production. It was a decidedly trippy, surreal and whimsical journey down the rabbit hole that contained enough wacky and bizarre moments in it to clearly set it apart from many of the "cute & sweet" feature films that Disney Studios was noted for making during this notable era of pre-CG animation history.

The 4 characters who I liked the most in this "Americanized" version of "Alice" were - Tweedledee & Tweedledum, the Mad Hatter, and of course, the outrageous Queen of Hearts ("Off with her head!").

I loved this film. The old style hand drawn animation, rich in colour and story, that was well portrayed as a young girl's dream. I do not recall having seen this when I was a child, but saw this as a man, and it by far surpasses the Tim Burton, Johnny Depp version. I think of this Disney film is such high regard, i have it in my library and gave away the latter.
I have not read either books, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland nor the sequel, Through the Looking Glass, written by Lewis Carroll, but i was blown away by this animated film version.

Another classic retold by Disney, with all of the color, music, and imagination I look forward to experiencing! I re-watched this one on the heels of reading Marissa Meyer's "Heartless," and it was fun to see the characters again as they are in the movie, and then admire how Meyer developed her characters into them, in the prequel.

Toaday we went to see the play called Alice in wonderland at the Braemer House School elamentry it was in the gym the gr. 3 class were putting on a play it was really good i remeber i barrowed this dvd from your collection in 2010 and then my teacher put this movie on in our class that some year and i also watched it in gr. 2 but our teacher gave us all a ticket to go see the play it was all the way untill home time.

Being Curious is not a sin

Asking questions and finding out information is not stalking

Curious minds want to know!!

"Off with their heads!!" says the Queen of Hearts.

The brightly-coloured magic of Disney Studios' talented animators is applied to Lewis Caroll's classic story in this 1951, feature-length cartoon with mostly entertaining results.

As with the book, the film is episodic and somewhat lacking the customary Disney warmth. But a few wonderful sequences - Like the Mad Hatter's tea party and the appearance of the Cheshire Cat - certainly make it worth a view.

Alice In Wonderland features the voice talents of - Ed Wynn, Sterling Holloway, and Kathryn Beaumont.

The unending nonsense gave me a headache, and there's a sinister undertone to many of the characters that left me queasy. Try the book instead.

Walrus: The time has come, my little friends, to talk of other things / Of shoes and ships and sealing wax, of cabbages and kings / And why the sea is boiling hot, and whether pigs have wigs / Calloo, Callay, come run away / With the cabbages and kings.

Cheshire Cat: If I were looking for a white rabbit, I'd ask the Mad Hatter.
Alice: The Mad Hatter? Oh, no no no...
Cheshire Cat: Or, you could ask the March Hare, in that direction.
Alice: Oh, thank you. I think I'll see him...
Cheshire Cat: Of course, he's mad, too.
Alice: But I don't want to go among mad people.
Cheshire Cat: Oh, you can't help that. Most everyone's mad here.
[laughs maniacally; starts to disappear]
Cheshire Cat: You may have noticed that I'm not all there myself.

Daisy: What kind of a garden do you come from?
Alice: Oh, I don't come from any garden.
Daisy: Do you suppose she's a wildflower?

Alice: If I had a world of my own, everything would be nonsense. Nothing would be what it is because everything would be what it isn't. And contrary-wise; what it is it wouldn't be, and what it wouldn't be, it would. You see?

White Rabbit: [singing] I'm late / I'm late / For a very important date. / No time to say "Hello, Goodbye". / I'm late, I'm late, I'm late.

SAPPHIREBEAR15 Jul 02, 2012

On the bank of a tranquil English river, a young girl named Alice grows bored of listening to her older sister read aloud from a history book of William I of England. When her sister chastises Alice's daydreaming, Alice tells her cat Dinah that she would prefer to live in a nonsensical dreamland called Wonderland. Alice and Dinah spot a waistcoat-wearing White Rabbit passing by, and Alice gives chase as he rushes off claiming to be late for an unknown event. Alice follows him into a rabbit hole and falls into a labyrinth. Her dress balloons out and she begins to float. She sees the White Rabbit disappear into a tiny door and tries to follow, but the door's talking knob advises her to alter her size using a mysterious drink and food. Alice eventually manages to shrink and passes through the door's keyhole and into Wonderland. She meets several strange characters including the Dodo and Tweedledee and Tweedledum who recount the tale of "The Walrus and the Carpenter."
