!!The 1951 Disney Film
* {{Blooper}}: The opening credits list Lewis Carrol as the author of the books, instead of Lewis Carrol'''l'''.
* BoxOfficeBomb: The first one since ''Bambi''. Budget, $3 million. Box office, $2.4 million (domestic). This ultimately didn't even dent Disney's emerging animation empire, but convinced Walt to personally never reissue the film, instead airing it on TV.
* CreatorBacklash: Creator/WaltDisney disliked how the final film turned out and was glad that it failed at the box office, feeling that the film had "no heart." He also felt that the original story had no plot, and was therefore inappropriate for a film adaptation. In fact, while most of Walt Disney's animated movies experienced their first theatrical rereleases 5-7 years after their premieres, this one took 22 years to return to the big screen. It did play on ''Series/WaltDisneyPresents'' at least three times by then, but during a period in which Disney refused to play their most successful animated movies on TV.
* CutSong: Loads. One of them, an [[IWantSong "I Want" Ballad]] titled "Beyond the Laughing Sky", eventually received new lyrics and became "[[Disney/PeterPan The Second Star to the Right]]".
* DawsonCasting: Mildly. The film does avert the trend of having a teen or young adult play Alice. Alice's voice actress, Kathryn Beaumont, was thirteen when the film came out and therefore probably about eleven or twelve when she recorded her lines. Kathryn Beaumont was also the physical model for the character. As a result, Alice is drawn looking like she's around eleven or twelve, whereas she was seven in the book. It's generally accepted by Disney fans that Disney!Alice is the age she looks rather than her book age.
* DevelopmentHell: The entire concept of a film adaptation of a story such as this was in development since the 1930s.
* TalkingToHimself: J. Pat O'Malley voices both Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum and all of the characters in the "Walrus and the Carpenter" segment. Justified because the Tweedles are twins and are the ones reciting the "The Walrus and the Carpenter" poem.
** Bill Thompson voiced the White Rabbit and the Dodo. Most of the Dodo's appearance in the film consists of him having a conversation with the White Rabbit.
* ThrowItIn: Much of the Tea Party consists of Ed Wynn (the Hatter) improvising for the artists.
** Most notably, the entire bit with him "fixing" the White Rabbit's watch began with Ed Wynn just messing around the recording booth after he'd finished a take. Disney noticed that the equipment was still recording and decided they should use it, requiring the recording staff to put in a lot of work cleaning up the audio to make it usable.
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: The Gryphon and the Mock Turtle. [[http://www.dailymotion.com/video/xdsasz_alice-for-jell-o_shortfilms They popped up in a Jello commercial]].
** Apparently, the Cheshire Cat's recitation of the opening lines of "Literature/{{Jabberwocky}}" was to give way to an actual encounter with the Jabberwock itself, voiced by Creator/StanFreberg. It was trashed for evidently being too scary.
*** Concept art was made of the Jabberwock, the Bandersnatch and the Jub Jub Bird, too. The Jabberwock had fiery eyes, the Bandersnatch had a long neck and a net for a tail, and one of many concepts for the Jub Jub Bird [[TheArtifact survives]] as the vulture-like "[[VisualPun umbrella birds]]" that gave Alice a DeathGlare when she interrupted their bath. Another concept for the Jub Jub Bird was a large eagle-like creature. The designs for the Bandersnatch and the Jub Jub Bird can be seen [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XSL6sgcZ5wg here]] and one for the Jabberwock and another for the Jub Jub Bird [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=75aT0OkIZsM here]].
** An earlier adaptation was planned for the thirties. The storyboards were done by the talented British artist David Hall. It was a bit closer to the book. It was, once again rejected for being too scary. Amongst the concepts from this version was the Mad Hatter and March hare chasing Alice [[PrimalFear with a knife and scissors,]] the Cheshire Cat [[SlasherSmile with hundreds of sharp teeth,]] and Alice nearly beheaded by a grinding gear. See the ending [[http://lukefarookhi.blogspot.com/2008/08/david-hall-and-alice-in-wonderland.html here]]
** Disney even toyed with the idea of having [[RogerRabbitEffect a live-action Alice explore an animated Wonderland]].
** Janet Waldo, best known as [[TheJetsons Judy Jetson]], was considered at one point to voice Alice. She would later voice Alice in Creator/HannaBarbera's own version of ''Alice in Wonderland'', televised in 1966 over Creator/{{ABC}}.
** There were a ''ton'' of cut songs composed for this film (over thirty according to some sources). A few were reworked into songs for other projects. For example "Second Star to the Right" and "Never Smile At A Crocodile" from Disney/PeterPan was going to be "Beyond the Laughing Sky", sung by Alice and "Lobster Quadriddle",from the late 30's version. There were also a couple of cut songs for the Cheshire Cat and Mr. Caterpillar; the Cheshire Cat got [[IAmSong "I'm Odd"]], which was to sum up his BlueAndOrangeMorality and {{Cloudcuckoolander}}ness, while the Caterpillar got "Dream Caravan", which portrayed him as a DreamWalker and had a [[EarWorm ridiculously catchy tune...]]
-->'''Caterpillar''': Zoom golly golly golly zoom golly golly...[[note]]To the tune of the Israeli children's song Zum Gali Gali.[[/note]]
** Another early plot idea involved Dinah getting lost in Wonderland and getting turned into the Cheshire Cat. Alice, the cat, the Mad Hatter, and the March Hare were to go on a journey together climaxing with Alice's arrest by the Queen. In the end, the Cheshire Cat redeems him/herself and is turned back into a real cat and escaping with Alice for a happy ending.
** In 2004, Disney used this movie to launch a new collection of 2-Disc [=DVDs=], the Masterpiece Editions. Eventually, the other movies Disney announced for inclusion in this collection received 2-Disc [=DVDs=] bearing different banners (most of which commemorated the respective movie's anniversary). Disney struck the final nail in the Masterpiece Edition line when they re-released ''Alice in Wonderland'' as an "Un-Anniversary Edition" to promote the Tim Burton movie.

* This and ''Disney/{{Dumbo}}'' were the first two single-story Disney Animated Classics to air on ''Series/WaltDisneyPresents'', and the first two to reach [[Creator/WaltDisneyHomeVideo home video]]; the third single-story movie, ''Disney/RobinHood'', didn't come until after the 1984 management shift, and it kicked off the WaltDisneyHomeVideo/WaltDisneyClassics series.

!!The 2010 Film
* ActorAllusion: Creator/JohnnyDepp offscreen [[Film/EdwardScissorhands cuts a new dress, seemingly without scissors]].
* BillingDisplacement: A given with any Creator/JohnnyDepp film. If the ads for the movie were any indication, you'd think this movie would be called "Johnny Depp Wears a Hat: The Movie."
* CreatorBacklash: Tim Burton apparently apologized for the film's mediocrity.
* FakeBrit: Creator/JohnnyDepp, Creator/CrispinGlover, Creator/AnneHathaway, and Mia Wasikowska. Averted with the rest of the cast.
* FanNickname: Some fans have taken to nicknaming The Dormouse, whose name is Mallymkin, Boo. Mainly so we can shout [[VideoGame/BaldursGate "GO FOR THE EYES BOO! GO FOR THE EYES!"]]
* TalkingToHimself: The Tweedles are played by the same actor.
* WordOfGod: One of the Hatter's pupils is visibly more dilated than the other--a sign of ''severe'' head trauma. A concussion would certainly explain his erratic emotions and babbling.
** That, and his trade is slowly killing him thanks to ''mercury vapor''.
** It's also part of AuthorAppeal, as Creator/TimBurton always draws things with huge eyes ([[WesternAnimation/TheNightmareBeforeChristmas Jack Skellington]], anyone?), so the effects team decided to follow it.
