Funny: Alice in Wonderland

Disney's animated adaptation

  • Alice trying to politely tell Tweedledee and Tweedledum that their story about the Walrus and the Carpenter did nothing but waste her time:
    Tweedledee and Tweedledum: Eh, and there's a moral to it.
    Alice: Oh, yes, a very good moral! If you happen to be an oyster.
  • The White Rabbit's Double Take and Big "WHAT?!" when the Dodo casually suggests he set the house on fire to smoke out "the monster" (Alice).
    • And the ending to the "We'll Smoke the Blighter Out" song:
    Dodo: Without a single doubt, we'll smoke the monster out!
    White Rabbit: We'll smoke the monster ou-- NO-HO! No-ho! My poor house and furniture!
  • After Bill the Lizard has been shot off into the sky, both the Dodo and Alice give us this casual little bit, as if they'd seen it many, many times before:
    Dodo: There goes Bill.
    Alice: Poor Bill.
  • The Cheshire Cat's scenes are all hilarious, especially at the trial.
    Alice: Why, you're not a queen! You're nothing but a fat [shrinks] pompous [shrinks] bad tempered old ty— [back to her normal size, in a small voice] tyrant.
    Cheshire Cat: [appears on the queen's head] Well, she simply said that you're a fat, pompous, bad tempered old tyrant! [devious laugh and disappears]
    Cheshire Cat: Oh, and by the way. If you'd really like to know, he went that way.
    Alice: Who did?
    Cheshire Cat: The White Rabbit.
    Alice: He did?
    Cheshire Cat: He did what?
    Alice: Went that way.
    Cheshire Cat: Who did?
    Alice: (getting frustrated) The White Rabbit!
    Cheshire Cat: What rabbit?
    Alice: But didn't you just say...oh dear!
    • The fact that Alice is so accustomed to the weirdness in Wonderland that the Cheshire Cat literally standing on his head doesn't phase her.
    • The Cheshire Cat's comment to Alice while he disappears:
    Cheshire Cat: You may have noticed that I'm not ALL THERE myself, aha, ha ha ha! And the mome raths outgrabe!
  • The entire watch sequence, bar none.
    March Hare: Mustard!
    Mad Hatter: Mustard, yes, mus-...MUSTARD?!?! Don't let's be silly! Lemon, that's different.
    • "Two days slow, that's what it is."
    • The March Hare's quite direct solution to the "MAD WATCH!" - whacking it with a mallet. The mainspring slowly unwinds itself - until the Hatter gives the White Rabbit his (mangled) watch back. The mournful look is priceless.
    White Rabbit: Oh, my watch.
    Mad Hatter: It was!?
    • The abuse the poor White Rabbit goes through in this sequence are hilarious. For example, the Hare yells the word "BUTTER" in his ear before the Hatter slams some butter right in his face.
    • The March Hare's "excellent idea".
    March Hare: I have an excellent idea! Let's change the subject. *hits the Hatter on the head with a mallet for no apparent reason*
    • The following exchange when The Mad Hatter and The March Hare are asking Alice what's troubling her.
    Mad Hatter: Something seems to be troubling you! Why don't you tell us all about it?
    March Hare: Start from the beginning!
    Mad Hatter Yes, and when you get to the end ha ha ha...stop. See?
  • When everyone is trying to calm the Door Mouse down at the trial, they're scrambling for the jam. In all the yelling the Queen shouts out "let me have it!". Cue jam jar hitting her in the face.
  • Alice falls down the rabbit hole and her dress poofs up like a parachute. Her response to this?
    "Well, after this I'll think nothing of falling down the stairs"
    • That's actually a slightly changed line from the book, where it was just as funny.
  • The March Hare and the Queen of Heart's Ham-To-Ham Combat at the trial scene.
    King of Hearts: What do you think of this unfortunate crime?
    March Hare: Nothing.
    Queen of Hearts: NOTHING WHATEVER?
    March Hare: Nothing WHATEVER!
    Queen of Hearts: THAT'S VERY IMPORTANT!
  • The Queen's reaction to the Mad Hatter.
    Queen: OFF WITH YOUR HAT!
  • Alice face palming when the Mad Hatter sings a reprise of "The Unbirthday Song".
    Alice: Oh no...
  • The marvelous amount of Dramatic Irony in Alice's song "A World of my Own". Also, the following exchange between her and her cat:
    Dinah: (looking somewhat uncomfortable with the whole idea) Meow.
    Alice: In my world, you wouldn't say "meow". You would say "yes Ms. Alice".
    Dinah: Meow.
    Alice: Oh but you would! You'd be just like people, Dinah. And all the other animals, too.
  • During the croquet game Alice has difficulty with her flamingo, summed up in this exchange:
    Alice: Do you want us both to lose our heads?!
    Flamingo: UH-HUH!
