One day, Alice followed the White Rabbit and feel down the rabbit hole into an upside down world where everyone is crazy.   AL.ICE IN WONDERLAND is a beloved  children's story that has been adapted several times including a Disney animated film that took 20 years to make.    Out of the old Disney animated films, I like ALICE IN WONDERLAND the best.   The movie doesn't make me feel like I have to fast forward through parts of the films when songs come one sometimes.    The Lewis Carroll tale has inspired all types of versions of the story.   The Disney animated film had its own journey to being made.   It gets curiouser and curiouser as the film goes on.  Alice meets an assortment of crazy characters from the first and second books.   I do like some of the things in Tim Burton's ALICE IN WONDERLAND better, but this animated classic I liked more than many of the old animated classics.

the DVD in the combo pack does have a few extras like
REFLECTIONS ON ALICE-  a featurtte about the journey to get the animated film made.  I do wish they included more of the live action reference footage that is shown in the featurette.   A deleted scene (Pig And Pepper) show in sketch form a scene that was never completed for the final film.  Also a deleted song is included on the disc which was replaced by a different song.   Then you have a Virtual Wonderland Party which is an interactive game.

Many more extras are included on the Blu-ray:
Reference footage for Alice And The Doorknob, the Color Introduction for Walt Disney Presents, Pencil Tests, and more.

FINAL ANALYSIS:   This 60th anniversary edition of the classic Disney animated is a treat.  ALICE IN WONDERLAND is my favorite of the old Disney animated classics so far.
