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 [[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/AliceInWonderland 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''. 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.

* MediumBlending: The 1933 film is all live-action, except for the "Walrus and the Carpenter" sequence, which is presented as a cartoon quite similar in style to Creator/WaltDisney's Silly Symphonies.

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.

* HybridMonster: In addition to the Gryphon, there's the Mock Turtle, a turtle with a calf's head, hooves, and tail. (This is likely because mock turtle soup, which the Queen says is made from mock turtles, was once made from the discarded parts of a calf, much like the discarded parts of cows are used to make low-grade hamburger in modern times.)

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