** For the record, "Alice" was a very popular baby name at the time, probably inspired by UsefulNotes/QueenVictoria giving that name to one of her daughters. ''{{Series/Victoria}}'' shippers will be thrilled to know that she chose the name because it was the favorite girl's name of Lord Melbourne.

** Also satirized with the Dutchess when she meets Alice again at the Queen of Hearts' croquet game, since she keeps trying to find a moral to everything they see every two seconds of the game, [[CluelessAesop each one]] [[SpaceWhaleAesop more ludicrous than the last]], even though none of her morals apply to the situations she and Alice come across.

-->'''Hatter:''' Well then, I rest my case.\\
'''March Hare:''' Where?\\
'''Hatter:''' There. (''points to a pile of suitcases that appeared out of nowhere'')
* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: In the 1999 adaptation, Alice saves the three playing card gardeners who were about to be beheaded for painting the roses, telling them to get into her pocket. They jump in and that's the last we ever hear from them.
** Also from that adaptation, the Tweedles vanish after the "monstrous crow" (depicted here as a horrifying EldritchAbomination) chases them (and Alice) away.

** Sizeshifter: Most of the transformations that happen to little Alice herself is her becoming more little than before or growing into a giantess (in relation to everyone and thing). "Drink Me" Potions make her smaller while "Eat Me" Cakes makes her larger (maybe even her real size). With the mushroom it's a mix of both: one side of the mushroom makes Alice small... but makes all but her head and feet small. Another side of the mushroom makes her big again... but makes her neck so long that a bird mistakes her for a snake.

* AllJustADream: One of the few examples where it worked, mostly because Wonderland worked by dream logic.

to:

* AllJustADream: One AllJustADream:
** Alice waking up at the end of ''Wonderland'' works just fine, since the story has all surreality and internal logic of a dream
** ''Through the Looking Glass'' adds a complication: was it Alice's dream
of the few examples where Red King, or was it worked, mostly because Wonderland worked by the Red King's dream logic.of Alice?
