Added DiffLines:

* WilyWalrus: Subverted. Walruses are apparently viewed as wicked, malicious creatures - most likely because of the walrus from "The Walrus and the Carpenter" - and thus everyone is appalled when Alice befriends a nice, polite walrus. Whether that walrus was an outlier in Wonderland is unrevealed.

* NewSuperPower: Played straight and parodied in "The Adventures of Spectacular Man," in which the Hatter wishes that he could be a comic book superhero. Next thing we know, he has turned into a combination of {{Superman}} and TheLoneRanger.

Added DiffLines:

* GilliganCut: In "TV Or Not TV," Alice expresses concern that the Tweedles, the Hatter, and the Hare are more concerned with watching television than practicing softball for the upcoming Wonderland Picnic. The Queen tells her not to worry: "It's not like they're going to do nothing but sit there for three straight days and nights and watch TV!" We then cut to a montage of the group doing just that.


Added DiffLines:

* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: The Queen of Hearts. Though she occasionally passes silly rules, she's generally a kind monarch who cares about her subjects and is willing to help them with their problems.

''Adventures in Wonderland'' was a live action [[KidCom children's sitcom]] and a loose adaptation of ''[[Literature/AliceInWonderland Alice's Adventures in Wonderland]]'', which ran on the DisneyChannel from 1991 to 1995. In the series, Alice (played by Elisabeth Harnois), was portrayed as a teenage girl who can go to and from Wonderland simply by walking through her mirror (a reference to Lewis Carroll's ''Through the Looking-Glass'').

* BigLippedAlligatorMoment: Most episodes have four songs, while some only have three. Most of the time, these songs will set up or advance the plot, while the last one summarizes the Aesop of that particular show. However, on some occasions, the characters burst into song for no particular reason, and then go on with the storyline without acknowledging what they just did. One such example is when the Tweedles, preparing for a photography session, lay down some rhymes about their love of taking pictures.

* {{Calvinball}}: Meewok, a favorite game of the Wonderlanders, has only one rule--the rules can be changed at any time. The Queen takes this UpToEleven by changing the rules ''after the game is over.''

* CompressedVice: This appears a ''lot'' on this show. Several episodes have one or more characters abruptly developing a bad character trait--the Hatter can't resist reading the Hare's mail, Tweedledum has been eating junk food non-stop, the Hare develops a superiority complex, the Queen suddenly loses all patience for people talking during her speeches, all of the male characters start doing nothing but watch television...the list goes on. But after twenty-two minutes, the problem would be solved, and never brought up again.



* FriendlyEnemies: The Queen and the Duchess. They constantly compete, try to upstage one another, trade insults (the Duchess calls the Queen "Twinkle Toes" for no discernible reason), and mock each other. There's even an entire episode dedicated to their "antagonistic" relationship, with commentary from all of the Wonderlandians about the pair. However, at the end of that episode, the Queen and Duchess sing a duet together that reveals that while they may be bitter rivals, they do like each other deep down, to the point where they swear they'll be friends forever.

* MusicalWorldHypothesis: Falls under the AlternateUniverse type. It makes sense, considering that in the source material, both Alice and the characters she met frequently broke into rhymes and songs.



* PaperThinDisguise: A favorite trope on this show. It's particularly ludicrous because there are exactly six humans (or humanoids) living in Wonderland, and everyone always knows when someone new comes to town--yet the disguises are often foolproof (which says something about the nature of the place).
** In "The Queen Who Came in from the Cold," the Red Queen wants to go undercover to determine who has been writing letters that criticize her latest taxes. She swaps her red dress and crown for a red dress and large red hat. It works.
** In "Wonderland: The Movie," Hatter and the Hare, eager to get more screen time, don Groucho glasses and pass themselves off as "Mr. X" and "Mr. Y."
** In "Forget Me Knot," the Hatter becomes "Professor Memory" by putting on a graduation robe and square cap.
** In "Christmas in Wonderland," the group meets to plan a holiday surprise for the Queen; to disguise themselves, the Hatter gives everyone (including Alice) Santa Claus beards. This one, at least, is lampshaded by Alice as unrealistic.



* WithFriendsLikeThese: The Queen and [[TheRival the Duchess]], '''big''' time.

* YetAnotherChristmasCarol: This time with a healthy eating theme! Tweedledum, who is apparently the "King of Junk Food," is visited by a Jacob Marley-esque Hare and the Ghosts of Nutrition Past (the Hatter), Present (the Queen), and Future (the White Rabit) to learn about the consequences of his diet.

* ThePiratesWhoDontDoAnything: Subverted, actually. Even including the original novel, this is one of the very few adaptations/spin-offs of Lewis Carroll's story in which the Mad Hatter is seen ''actually designing hats''.
