One pill makes you larger, and one pill makes you small. Alice in Wonderland is a full length animated feature produced by Walt Disney and based primarily on Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland with a few additional elements from Through the Looking-Glass. It was released in New York City and London on July 29, 1951 by RKO Radio Pictures.

In a park in England, Alice becomes bored with her sister’s history lesson on the Norman conquest of England and expresses her want of adventure, leading her to the bank of the River Thames. There, Alice spots a passing Alice in Wonderland animationWhite Rabbit in a waistcoat, exclaiming that he is “late for a very important date.” She gives chase, then falls down a large hole to Wonderland.

Alice tracks the Rabbit to his house; he mistakes her for his housemaid, “Mary Ann,” and sends her to retrieve his gloves. While searching for the gloves in the Rabbit’s house, Alice finds and eats a cookie marked “Eat Me” and grows large, getting stuck in the house.

Alice in Wonderland animation leads her to cross paths with some of the most amazing Wonderland creatures. The Hookah Smoking Caterpillar is enraged at Alice after she laments her small size (which is the same as the Caterpillar’s), after which the Caterpillar turns into a butterfly and flies away. Before leaving, the Caterpillar advises Alice to eat a piece of a mushroom to alter her size stating that “one side will make you grow taller and the other side will make you grow shorter.”

Alice in Wonderland animation is covered wonderfully in this Disney Fandom website.

Charles Lutwidge Dodgson himself would be proud of this wonderful adaptation. Alice! a childish story take, And with a gentle hand, Lay it where Childhood’s dreams are twined, In Memory’s mystic band, Like pilgrim’s withered wreath of flowers, Plucked in a far off land.
