Movie of the Week: Alice In Wonderland (1951)

Clyde Geronimi, Wilfred Jackson and Hamilton Luske direct Kathryn Beaumont, Ed Wynn and Richard Haydn in this Disney animated classic based on Lewis Carroll’s tale of a young girl who enters a world of nonsense.

The trippiest Disney. Faithful to the source, still child friendly. There’s more material herein than in any 10 line fairytale and that really helps the zany magic to shine. Also the first one of these I can remember that doesn’t have a culturally inappropriate character you have to gasp, giggle and excuse awkwardly. Allegedly also has the most songs of any WD classic, though none are an obvious strength.
