* MonochromeToColor: When the White Rabbit's watch goes crazy, the screen turns an intense red until the March Hare smashes it with a mallet. For one brief shot, the screen turns black and white to show the watch expiring, before turning back to normal colors in the next scene.

* HaveAGayOldTime: Disney ''really'' loves using "gay" as "happy", and it pops up as "fancy-free and gay" in "The Caucus-Race."

* HaveAGayOldTime: Disney ''really'' loves using "gay" as "happy", and it pops up as "fancy-free and gay" in "The Caucus-Race."" In fact, old musicals in general tended to love using the word "gay", probably due to it being easy to rhyme.

** The Walrus in "The Walrus and the Carpenter". While neither he nor the Carpenter were particularly good people in the original poem (Alice notes that the Walrus [[spoiler: showed remorse for his actions but still ate more oysters than the Carpenter, while the Carpenter ate as many as he could]]), he was much more remorseful in the poem. Here, however, he's depicted as an [[SmugSnake arrogant, manipulative]], [[VillainousGlutton greedy]] [[AristocratsAreEvil evil aristocrat]].

* WilyWalrus: The Walrus from the poem "The Walrus and the Carpenter" was bad enough in the original novel, but in this adaptation, he goes through quite a bit of AdaptationalVillainy, and gains a DastardlyWhiplash-esque appearance to match. He takes all the oysters for himself instead of sharing with the Carpenter, like he did in the poem. Also, this movie portrays the oysters as youngsters, [[EatsBabies making the Walrus seem even more monstruous]]!
* WorldOfHam: Wonderland is quite loud and dramatic, but Queen of Hearts and the March Hare stand out as the hammiest.

Number 13 in the Franchise/DisneyAnimatedCanon, this [[TheGoldenAgeOfAnimation 1951]] adaptation of ''[[Literature/AliceInWonderland Alice's Adventures in Wonderland]]'' was a long time coming. Creator/WaltDisney was a lifelong fan of the book and wanted to make it a decade earlier, but another production of the story was being produced elsewhere at the time, prompting the studio to shelf it for a while. Then World War II happened and they lost a lot of their budget on war films. Some years of DevelopmentHell turned the film from into a more wacky, comedic cartoon in the same vein as ''Disney/TheEmperorsNewGroove'' and a very odd entry in the Disney canon.

* AdaptedOut: By necessity, many of the original characters were cut for pacing. Most notably The Duchess, who lends some of her personality to the Queen Of Hearts, the Mock Turtle, the Griffin, the Mouse and the Knave Of Hearts.

* DumbDodoBird: The Dodo of course!course! Though he's not so much stupid as he is subject to the bizarre leaps of logic of all Wonderland residents.



* HappilyMarried: Surprisingly, implied with the King and Queen of Hearts, who are shown to be quite affectionate toward eachother, when the Queen isnt in a bad mood.



* ScoobyDoobyDoors: Predating even the trope namer.

to:

* PragmaticAdaptation: The film is actually a combination of the original book and its sequel "Through The Looking Glass". Keeping every character from the books would basically be impossible, so the movie uses the most iconic ones from each book, while the plot itself is based off Wonderland. Tweedledee and Tweedledum, The Walrus and The Carpenter and the singing flowers are originally from Through The Looking Glass.
* ScoobyDoobyDoors: Predating even the trope namer.namer, though rather than using actual doors, the scene in question takes place in a hedge maze.


Added DiffLines:

* VagueAge: Tweedledee and Tweedledum dress like and act like children, and could pass for large kids, especially in the bizarre Wonderland, but they are shown to be balding underneath their caps, making them look like grown men dressed as kids.
