Why Does the Mad Hatter’s Hat say 10/6?

9th January, 2012 - Posted by DisAnim - No Comments

I have a friend from my high school years who bought a hat from Disneyland that was modeled after the Mad Hatter’s hat, so I saw the “10/6” tag a lot. I asked him once what in the world that was supposed to mean. He told me that it was the size of the hat, […] Read More

Time and Place of Alice in Wonderland

2nd January, 2012 - Posted by DisAnim - No Comments

I’m not sure that Alice in Wonderland can be placed definitively, mostly since the majority of the action takes place in a fantasy world. However, in the scene where Alice is with her sister I don’t think it’s such a bad thing to place the story contemporary with Lewis Carroll and in the same setting. […] Read More

Source Material of Alice in Wonderland

26th December, 2011 - Posted by DisAnim - No Comments

Alice in Wonderland borrows elements from Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland as well as its sequel: Through the Looking-Glass. Lewis Carroll has many pursuits, including mathematics and photography, but we remember him best for his literary works (the Alice books being his most famous). I read both books in a Victorian literature class I […] Read More

Alice in Wonderland’s Significance

19th December, 2011 - Posted by DisAnim - No Comments

Alice in Wonderland holds the honor of having the most songs in a Disney feature film. Of course, since the songs are typically so short, it is rarely remembered for its music (except for a few songs in particular, such as Unbirthday). Read More

What’s in a Name? – Alice in Wonderland

12th December, 2011 - Posted by DisAnim - No Comments

It is commonly accepted that Alice is named after Alice Liddell, the daughter of Lewis Carroll’s friend (though there is some opposition to this notion). The Cheshire Cat may be named after Cheshire, a county in England where Carroll was born. Many of the other characters have names that aptly describe them, such as the […] Read More

My Take on Alice in Wonderland

28th November, 2011 - Posted by DisAnim - No Comments

Character I identify with: Alice – Honestly, I simply cannot identify with anyone else because they’re way too weird. Element I wish would have been elaborated: The jabberwock. It’s a cool part of the original book. (And maybe my opinion’s have been tainted by Tim Burton’s 2010 version.) Views on the villain: The queen of […] Read More

Review of Alice in Wonderland

21st November, 2011 - Posted by DisAnim - No Comments

In some ways, Alice in Wonderland shared a lot of similarities with Fantasia. It was one of Walt Disney’s personal pet projects that he had been harboring for some time. Even before he had created his animation studio, he was interested in Alice in Wonderland. In fact, he produced some shorts that were animation/live action […] Read More

The Lost Cinderella Songs

8th August, 2011 - Posted by DisAnim - No Comments

On the most recent release of Cinderella, the DVD contains several songs that were intended for the original movie — some of which were actually storyboarded. I listened to a few, and I was glad for all of the substitutions that they had placed in the finished version. However, there was one song that I […] Read More
