Movie adaptations of the story go back into the earliest days of film: the first adaptation, a short subject made in 1903, contains some of the earliest examples of special effects in film. Walt Disney made some of his first animated films adapted from the Alice tales, and featured a live-action actress against animated characters. Of course, more popular is Creator/{{Disney}}'s [[UsefulNotes/TheGoldenAgeOfAnimation 1951]] [[Disney/AliceInWonderland feature film]], which is considered among the studio's most surreal titles. Again under Disney, Creator/TimBurton has made a [[Film/AliceInWonderland2010 new 2010 movie]] with Creator/JohnnyDepp as The Mad Hatter, though it's actually a sequel to both this book and ''Through the Looking Glass''. This version received a sequel in 2016, titled ''Film/AliceThroughTheLookingGlass''. An unrelated television movie reimagination, ''Series/{{Alice|2009}}'', was produced in 2009 by the Creator/{{Syfy}} Channel. ''Literature/TheLookingGlassWars'' is a trilogy by Frank Beddor based on the idea that ''Alyss'' was heir to the throne of Wonderland and was forced to flee to our world by her evil Aunt Redd. ''And'' there's an animated series by Nippon Animation (the same group that made the ''Biene Maia'', ''Anime/HeidiGirlOfTheAlps'' and ''Literature/ADogOfFlanders'' animated series). A pop musical version, simply called ''Wonderland'', is playing in Tampa, Florida as of late 2009. The book also inspired various manga. ''Manga/PandoraHearts'' and ''AudioPlay/AreYouAlice'' are the two most prominent. Among the many video game adaptations are ''[[VideoGame/AmericanMcGeesAlice American McGee's Alice]]''. Many adaptations involve {{Grimmification}} to some degree. Due to [[PublicDomain its copyright expiring long ago]], Alice is popular base material for commercial transformative works, including a musical porn film from 1975 and a [[StorybookEpisode special adaptation]] that features many characters from a ''far darker'' story known as Franchise/CodeGeass as the cast of ''Alice's Adventures in Wonderland''. The most surreal adaptation would be "Alice" (1989) by Creator/JanSvankmajer.

* LoonyLaws: The Queen of Hearts was defined by being a woman [[TheCaligula that had to be obeyed on every single little whimsical law she made on the spot, even the ones that make no sense]], and ''every single crime'', no matter how small, all had the same sentence: beheading. When Alice first arrives to her kingdom, she meets a group of guards that are rushing to paint every rose on the garden red (they were white), because she just woke up in the morning hating them being white (and made them illegal). During Alice's judgement later on the book, the Queen kept on making things Alice did while defending herself illegal on the spot (and, again, kept calling for her beheading for each transgression).

* MagicPants: In the original John Tenniel illustrations and in nearly all adaptations, Alice's dress grows and shrinks with her. It's Wonderland -- nothing else makes sense, so why should this? Averted in the [[Film/AliceInWonderland Tim Burton version]], however.

** {{Subverted}}. ''Alice'' is notable for being the first work of Victorian children's literature that sought to entertain rather than to teach dull morals. Though one could argue that ''Alice'' teaches an indirect moral of enjoying your childhood while it lasts, and to never forget it during adulthood.

Interestingly, there has only been one live-action film adaptation based on Carroll's original writing, a 1933 film called ''Alice in Wonderland'' that employed an AllStarCast (Creator/WCFields as Humpty Dumpty, Creator/CaryGrant as the Mock Turtle, and Creator/GaryCooper as the White Night), but had almost all the actors so heavily disguised as to be unrecognizable.
