* ''Film/TheWorldOfKanako'': The whole movie is about Akikazu entering a world of violence, despair and manipulation. The farther he gets, the more he learns the dark secrets of his daughter and his own problematic personality shines through. Kanako even carries a copy of ''Literature/AliceInWonderland'' with her.

* ''WesternAnimation/OverTheGardenWall'' is about two brothers (and their pet frog) stuck in a FantasyAmericana setting called the Unknown, inhabited by {{Talking Animal}}s, witches and [[BigBad a demon]] who wants to [[BalefulPolymorph turn them into trees]] and [[YourSoulIsMine burn them in his lantern]]. Along the way, the older brother, teenage Wirt, gains the self-confidence to take responsibility for both his younger brother and his own life. Unlike many examples, this one starts InMediasRes, and we only belatedly discover ''how'' the pair got into the Unknown: [[spoiler:they're having a NearDeathExperience while drowning, with {{Fanon}} painting the Unknown as some sort of afterlife]].

* "White Rabbit" (not a cover of the above Jefferson Airplane song) by Egypt Central also references ''Literature/AliceInWonderland''.

to:

* "White Rabbit" (not a cover of the above Jefferson Airplane song) by Egypt Central also starts off with references ''Literature/AliceInWonderland''.to ''Literature/AliceInWonderland'', including "falling down the hole". In this case, it's a subversion, as it's revealed partway through the song to be a metaphor for being manipulated into obedience by the [[ManipulativeBastard "white rabbit"]].

* Like the Tron films above, ''[[{{Tron20}} Tron 2.0]]'' does the same with the protagonists getting forcibly uploaded. But also given a {{Deconstruction}} as the antagonists found the rabbit hole before the protagonists and are using it to wreak havoc in the electronic "wonderland"

** In the non-traditional, Maurice Sendak-designed version from TheEighties, after the gigantic Mouse King is killed Clara and her Nutcracker pass through a cave of sorts formed by his now-empty coat. By the time they emerge, Clara (played a preteen thus far) has aged to adulthood and the Nutcracker has taken on the form of a handsome human.

Crawling through tunnels, descending underground, and getting stuck in confined spaces are all unusually common (though not required) in these works. This theme first appears as a physical passage between the mundane and the fantastic, a gateway which can not be crossed from elsewhere on the real world side. The symbolism involved is typically suggestive of the birth canal (i.e. the "womb of the earth" metaphor). Several of the genre's defining works then continue to put their protagonists back underground on the fantasy side. The presence of so many long, narrow tunnels in what are usually {{coming of age stor|y}}ies may therefore leave you wondering if FreudWasRight.
