** Well, formally speaking, the ''logic'' is quite [[SoundValidTrue valid]] - only the premises are insane (and some particularly crazy premises are hidden - given implicitly). Compare [[Creator/LewisCarroll Carroll's]] logic textbooks, ''The Game of Logic'' and ''Symbolic Logic'' [[note]]found on Gutenberg Project[[/note]], which feature some deliciously [[TextbookHumour weird examples]].

* CommonKnowledge: The Queen of Hearts and the Red Queen are the same character, right? In fact, no - they're unrelated characters, and when you read Carroll's descriptions or look at Tenniel's illustrations you quickly see they're based on different games: the first is a playing card, the second is a chess piece. It's easy to see where the confusion arose, though: they are Alice's main antagonists in their respective books and don't look entirely dissimilar, so conflating them gives the duology a more satisfying arc. Most adaptations, tending to pick and choose from both books which elements to include, [[CompositeCharacter treat them as a single character]], which doesn't help either.

* ArtisticLicensePhysics: As an algebra professor, Carroll clearly knew that if Alice had truly been in a state of freefall, she could neither have dropped the marmalade jar nor put it in a cupboard as she fell by it. (Probably a minor nitpick considering that her descent itself was [[IFellForHours a rather blatant violation of the laws of physics]].)

** When Alice says that at least the Walrus felt sorry for the oysters, Tweedledee explains that he only did that so he could hide that he's taking more than the Carpanter.
