''The Care Bears: Adventure in Wonderland'' (1987) is the third and final theatrical film in the ''Franchise/CareBears'' franchise.

The Care Bears are given a mission by The White Rabbit of Wonderland, who is Swift Heart's uncle. The Princess of Heart has gone missing, and the SuccessionCrisis will give an evil wizard the crown. The Care Bears go searching for her, but instead find a girl named Alice, who is a dead ringer for the Princess. She is convinced to impersonate the princess to stall for time while the Care Bears go searching for the real one.

Unfortunately, the wizard is on to this scheme, and hopes to expose Alice for what she is. It's up to Alice to prove her worth, and the Care Bears to find the real princess in time.

The plot basically has more in common with ''Literature/ThePrisonerOfZenda'' than ''Literature/AliceInWonderland''.

The box office for this film was the lowest of the three, causing a fourth film, ''WesternAnimation/CareBearsNutcrackerSuite'', to be a TV movie. There would be no further movies until DirectToVideo films in the TurnOfTheMillennium. It was distributed by the film distribution subsidiary of a Canadian movie theatre company, Cineplex Odeon (now known as [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cineplex_Entertainment Cineplex Entertainment]]).
!!''The Care Bears: Adventure in Wonderland'' provides examples of the following tropes:

* AdaptationalHeroism: The Queen of Hearts, [[AxCrazy of all people]], gets this.
* AnimatedMusical
* BagOfKidnapping: Dim and Dum try to kidnap Alice this way; it looks like they succeed, but they get a pillow instead.
* CanonForeigner: The wizard and the princess of Wonderland. Neither of them existed in the original story.
* CaptainErsatz: Dim and Dum are blatant copies of Beastly. Dim even has the same voice.
* ChekhovsGun: Dim and Dum's fear of spiders [[spoiler:is what enables the Cheshire Cat to provide a distraction long enough for Alice and the princess to switch places]].
* DamselInDistress: Turns out that the Wonderland princess is being held captive by the Jabberwocky.
* DerangedAnimation: One frame during the wizard's song shows his face deformed to freaky proportions.
* DiggingToChina: No one digs a hole, but a brief scene shows that Australia is upside-down.
* EmergencyImpersonation: After trying to find the princess, but finding a girl who looks just like her, they have Alice pretend to be the princess while the search continues.
* EverythingsBetterWithPrincesses: As noted above, Wonderland had no princess in the original story. In this film, the Princess is an important character whose disappearance is the driving force behind the plot.
* EverythingsBetterWithSparkles: When the princess revives dying plants, it's done with a shower of sparkles.
* EvilChancellor: The royal wizard, our BigBad, abuses his authority in his quest to become king.
* {{Foreshadowing}}: When "Alice" is giggling at the chaos caused by a panicking Dim and Dum, her previously tattered outfit is now pristine - a hint that [[spoiler:she's really the princess]].
* GardenHoseSquirtSurprise: Subverted in the credits. Bright Heart Raccoon is watering the flowers when the water stops. It turned out that Lotsa Heart Elephant had her foot on the hose which made the water stop, then she lifts her foot up again, causing the water to flow again. Bright Heart briefly looks in the hose before looking over to see Lotsa Heart walking away casually, just as the water squirts out of the hose while Bright Heart was holding it away from himself.
* {{Gasp}}: Alice, and much of the Wonderland subjects, do this after the White Rabbit reads the details of the Princess Test.
* GreatBigBookOfEverything: The Book of Wonder. It holds the rules that govern Wonderland. The physical book is so large that two minions, Dim and Dum, struggle to carry it.
* GreenThumb: A princess's touch has the power to revive dying plants.
* HairDecorations: The princess wears a red ribbon in her hair.
* HannibalLecture: The wizard gives this to Alice, convinced she can't impersonate the Princess properly.
* TheHatMakesTheMan: The Mad Hatter's hats cause personality changes to the wearers.
* {{Hypocrite}}: During his VillainSong, the Wizard goes on and on about how the insanity of Wonderland is not right and that it needs rules and order brought to it. He does this all while ''participating'' in the craziness, if not occasionally ''[[RealityWarper causing it]]''.
* IdenticalStranger: Alice to the princess, leading to BodyDouble.
* IdenticalTwinIDTag: Dim's shirt has vertical stripes while Dum's are horizontal
* IJustWantToBeSpecial: The main characteristic of Alice.
* {{Nephewism}}: The White Rabbit of Wonderland is Swift Heart Rabbit's uncle.
* NightmareFace: The wizard sports one for a brief second during his Villain Song.
* NoNameGiven: Neither the Queen, the Wizard, nor the Princess of Wonderland are known by anything other than their titles.
* NotEvilJustMisunderstood: Stan the giant Jabberwocky. Kinda shoehorned in, [[AndroclesLion because while having a thorn stuck in your paw]] may explain his ill-mannered rampaging, it makes no sense [[HumanPet why he's holding the Princess captive in the first place.]]
* TheOmniscient: The White Rabbit states that the Cheshire Cat knows everything that goes on in Wonderland.
* OurDragonsAreDifferent: The Jabberwocky is ''enormous'', so much so, [[TheDreaded everyone in Wonderland, even the Wizard, is terrified of him]]. Everyone avoids him, [[IJustWantToHaveFriends leaving the giant alone and rather grumpy.]]
* PimpedOutDress: The Princess of Wonderland has quite a few of course, so does the queen.
* PrincessClassic: In Wonderland, a princess is so pure, there's a test for being a "true princess"... which a normal girl can apparently pass, provided she fails by [[WhatYouAreInTheDark doing the right thing]].
* PrincessesPreferPink: The Wonderland princess has a pink dress (with [[GracefulLadiesLikePurple purple trim]]) and royal cape, which rounds out her {{princess tropes}}.
* RampageFromANail: The Jabberwocky, who's in a state of crankiness due to a thorn stuck in his paw. With the combined effort of everyone, the thorn is removed, inciting the Jabberwocky's HeelFaceTurn.
* RealityWarper: The Cheshire Cat.
* RunningGag: Grumpy Bear constantly grumbling about his hunger. In the end, this joke builds up to... a rap song during the credits.
* SamusIsAGirl: Swift Heart Rabbit is apparently female, since the White Rabbit outright calls her his niece.
* SaveThePrincess: The Care Bears set out to find the real Princess of Wonderland, while Alice undergoes training to impersonate her.
* ScrewThisImOuttaHere: When the wizard starts going into his VillainousBreakdown, Dim and Dum can be seen tiptoeing away with armloads of suitcases and a teddy bear.
* SuccessionCrisis: {{Invoked| Trope}} by the wizard kidnapping the princess before her coronation.
* SymbolMotifClothing: Heart symbols decorate the regalia worn by the queen and princess of Wonderland. Their dresses are covered with them in various places. Even the Queen's cape has hearts on [[PrettyInMink the white ermine trim]]. The princess's ermine-trimmed cape has a heart-shaped clasp.
* TheThemeParkVersion: Does this for [[Literature/AliceInWonderland Wonderland]].
* TrueBlueFemininity: One of the Princess's fancy dresses is bright blue.
* {{Unicorn}}: Alice encounters an injured unicorn foal in the mountains while on her way back from retrieving the spring water she needs for her princess test. [[spoiler: She gives the water to the unicorn instead... which, it turns out, was [[SecretTestOfCharacter exactly the sort of thing she needed to do to pass.]]]]
* UnmovingPlaid: Done deliberately with the patterns on the Cheshire Cat's fur, as it adds to his surreal, shapeshifting appearance.
* VillainSong: "When I'm the King of Wonderland"
* VoluntaryShapeshifter: The Cheshire Cat.
* WellIntentionedExtremist: Crazily inverted. The Wizard's goal is to bring law and order to Wonderland. In any other context, this would ordinarily make him the de-facto hero, in trying to bring order to chaos - ''[[MakesSenseInContext but this is Wonderland.]]'' His plan would destroy the life and soul of this alternate reality.
* WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes: Dim and Dum are TERRIFIED of spiders.
