day 164

movie: Alice in Wonderland (Disney)
starring:Kathryn Beaumont, Ed Wynn
genre: Music, Cartoon
year: 1951
format: DVD

plot: Alice follows the White Rabbit down to Wonderland and must find away to get back home while making sure the Queen of Hearts does not cut off her head.

This is the Disney version of the classic story. 
I have to say, I never realized just how violent some of the old cartoons are.  The whole cutting off of someone's head when you're a kid just seems funny, but as an adult it makes you sort of wonder (no pun intended) what Lewis Carroll was thinking? 

There have always been elements of this story that has creeped me out - the Walrus and the Carpenter- but seeing it again all these years later makes me wonder (again, no pun intended) if this was written now would it have been given a G rating?

what do i think i learned from this film?
There is always time for tea and cake
