Overview

This Disney feature-length cartoon combines the most entertaining elements of Lewis Carroll's Alice in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass. Chasing after the White Rabbit, who runs into view singing "I'm Late! I'm Late!," Alice falls down the rabbit hole into the topsy-turvy alternate world of Wonderland. She grows and shrinks after following the instructions of a haughty caterpillar, attends a "Very Merry Unbirthday" party in the garden of the Mad Hatter and the March Hare, stands in awe as the Cheshire Cat spouts philosophy, listens in rapt attention as Tweedledum and Tweedledee relate the story of the Walrus and the Carpenter a sequence usually cut when Alice is shown on TV, and closes out her day with a hectic croquet game at the home of the Red Queen. The music and production design of Alice in Wonderland is marvelous, but the film is too much of a good thing, much too frantic to do full honor to the whimsical Carroll original, and far too episodic to hang together as a unified feature film. One tactical error is having Alice weep at mid-point, declaring her wish to go home: This is Alice in Wonderland, Walt, not Wizard of Oz! Its storytelling shortcomings aside, Alice in Wonderland is superior family entertainment never mind the efforts in the 1970s to palm off the picture as a psychedelic "head" film.

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Donald Liebenson
Walt Disney's 1951 animated adaptation of Lewis Carroll's enchanting fable emerges through the looking glass and onto DVD in this two-disc "Watch Me" set that's brimming with fascinating archival treasures and fun interactive features. Following Snow White and Cinderella, Alice was the third storybook heroine Disney animators brought to life. Their Alice is a bored schoolgirl who, like Dorothy in The Wizard of Oz, yearns for a more exciting life. Things get "curiouser and curiouser" after she follows the frantic White Rabbit down the rabbit hole and has a series of surreal misadventures in a world where "nothing's impossible." Although less emotionally engaged than such Disney animated masterworks as Pinocchio and Bambi, Alice in Wonderland is still a riot of fantastic incidents and classic characters the Walrus and the Carpenter, Tweedledee and Tweedledum, the Queen of Hearts, and, to quote Grace Slick, that hookah-smoking Caterpillar. The voice work is superb, from charmer Kathryn Beaumont as Alice to Ed Wynn as the Mad Hatter, Jerry Colonna as the March Hare, and Sterling Holloway as the Cheshire Cat. The musical score includes the Disney standards, "I'm Late" and the rollicking "The Unbirthday Song." And, for once in a Disney film, a wicked queen is more comical than terrifying. As for the bonuses: Rarities include "One Hour in Wonderland" form 1950, culled from Walt Disney's first television show, as well as the 1923 Disney cartoon "Alice's Wonderland," which combines live action and animation, and the classic Mickey Mouse cartoon "Thru the Mirror." An adult Beaumont appears in a surprising segment that reveals how unused music from Alice found its way into Peter Pan.
All Movie Guide - Craig Butler
Not fully appreciated upon its initial release by either critics or audiences, Alice in Wonderland has grown in stature over the years. Its primary failing is that its conventional approach (in both script and design) fails to capture the special dreamlike quality of the Lewis Carroll source material. However, on its own terms, the film is enormously entertaining. The animation is top-notch throughout, but especially so in the sequences involving the Cheshire Cat, the climactic card chase, Alice's many changes of size, and the wonderful Mad Hatter tea party. The actors providing the voices are extremely well cast and are responsible for a great deal of the film's success. Ed Wynn and Jerry Colonna capture the inspired lunacy of the Mad Hatter and the March Hare respectively, and Sterling Holloway is an appropriately disturbing Cheshire Cat. Kathryn Beaumont's Alice is charming, stubborn, bewildered, bossy, prissy, obedient, polite, and irritated by turns, and Beaumont makes the many swift changes believable. Also noteworthy is the score, most of which consists of very short and sometimes incomplete numbers, but still is quite beguiling. Pay special attention to the lovely "In a World of My Own" and the lush "All in the Golden Afternoon." Although Alice in Wonderland may have been taken somewhat for granted originally, the next films for this directing triumvirate -- Peter Pan and Lady and the Tramp -- would be recognized immediately as animated classics.

    Fun and Stimulates Thought

    This has always been a great movie to stimulate the psychi and create imaginative conversation. The story is one of an exercise in dark emotion with enlightening tones.It opens up a deep exploration of ones self and a lesson to be learned by all. Children will learn and sing along with the musical side of it. It will entertain for years to come.This classic should be on everyones dvd list. It blows away the later releases. What a cult classic! The kids today should have it as a required viewing and essay for any creative writing class. Definitely a must buy for all!!

    A True Classic!

    Upon the re-release of this movie, I had to be sure I wrote out a review on this one. This, among many others from back during it's time, provided me and my siblings such wonderful entertainment while we were growing up. This movie is a bit different than the new live action one that came out...both not exactly according to the actual story to the exact degrees...but then again, there were also elements that could not be added into this one, seeing as how it was a Disney movie. However, I still always really enjoyed this one, and I would recommend it to parents for their children most definitely, and even many adults...who may not already be familiar with it, but somehow I have a feeling that most are. Check it out, as well as the selections listed below...and beyond. There are many great Disney titles out there folks, new and old, and if space was alotted for it, I would list them all. Disney rulz!

    Almost fell asleep watching it...

    I found this movie very tiring and painful to sit through and watch. It was very dull, had no plot, and had no character developement. Alice was not a likeable character, since she was so whiny and bratty through-out the movie. The only scene I kind of liked was with the Mad Hatter and the tea party. I usually like a lot of Disney songs (Aladdin's "One Jump Ahead", Beauty and the Beast's "Be Our Guest", The Lion King's "Can't Wait To Be King"), but I didn't like any of the songs in this one. Well, I did kind of like Alice's song, "In A World Of My Own", but that's it. This movie is just very confusing and boring, and is no where near entertaining. The only good thing I can say about this movie is that the animation was pretty good. I think this movie would have been a whole lot better if the plot was more developed. If you want to watch a Disney classic, watch "Peter Pan", "Cinderella", "Beauty and the Beast", or "The Lion King".

    Shallow and A Bit Cold

    The title is pretty self-explanatory. "Alice in Wonderland" is surprisingly heartless for a Disney movie. The characters are helpless and unfeeling. Alice herself is annoying, unsympathetic, whiny, and doesn't seem to learn from her mistakes. Another problem with the movie is its pace. It's too fast it never gives us a chance to catch our breath or reflect on what's happened so far. Although I like the plot, it would have been a lot better if the characters and timing had been better.

    Stunning New Mastering of a Compendium Narrative Excerpt from a Classic Novel

    Lewis Carrol's 'Alice In Wonderland' isn't so much fairytale as it is scathing political satire. That the novel just happens to feature such immortal and cartoonish characters as the Mad Hatter and Cheshire Cat was good for masking Carroll¿s acidic intent on debasing the British aristocracy and parliament. In eschewing Carrol's intentions, Walt Disney gives us spectacle without substance; a series of highly imaginative and magnificently rendered vignettes that, unfortunately fail to provide a cohesive plot for dear sweet Alice to meander through. At best, the film appears as something of a ¿Silly Symphony¿ travelogue of moments that barely hold ones attention as a collective whole. At the time of its release 'Alice' was much criticized for ¿lacking heart¿, but actually the opposite is true. There is great warmth in the Kathryn Beaumont¿s vocal realization of the young Alice. There are also poignant moments of introspection that result in Alice¿s realization that she cannot stay in Wonderland but rather, must return to the world that belongs to her. However, having omitted many of the novel¿s best loved characters, and truncated certain story elements while completely omitted perhaps the novel¿s best segment, 'the Jabberwacky,' few die hard Carrol-philes forgave Disney for his intrusion on the hallowed ground of the novel¿s literary legacy. The transfer on Alice is, in a word, stunning! A rich, fully saturated spectrum of color that is bold and well defined. While the previously issued DVD suffered from some picture instability and age related artifacts, this version is 'practically perfect in every way'. The audio has been cleaned up and remixed to 5.1 surround. The songs benefit richly from the remastering effort with robust spread across all five speaker channels, quite uncharacteristic in most movies of 'Alice's' vintage. There are a ton of extras to sift through. There's a Charlie McCarthy featurette, some studio junket stuff and a few short subjects that get introduced by Katharine Beaumont. There's also the Mickey Mouse short 'Through the Looking Glass' which was previously made available as part of the 'Mickey in Living Color' DVD and a really, REALLY dismal virtual adventure in Wonderland that I can't imagine appealing to anyone outside of the pre-school set. One oversight: there's no comprehensive 'making of' for this Disney film - a genuine shame that leaves the other extras sort of out in the cold, presented without any kind of overview and underlying unity - sort of like the film itself.

    5+ Star Movie

    Fun for everyone, from 1 to 100. Bright vibrant colors, catchy songs and it never gets old. Characters that you love and grow accustomed to, with a plot that never ceases to overflow you with happiness.
