TV Alice?!

Don't worry Katrina, I didn't forget to blog about it! :)

Have you ever seen the TV version of Alice in Wonderland? It was released in 1985 and was a two part series on TV. I have to say, before Friday night I had never seen it either. It is very 'interesting'. Some of the guys were having 'guy time' Friday night, so Katrina and I decided to watch it (since she LOVES that version and the DVD just arrived). We decided that the writer, actors, or some sort of combination were probably on acid, but that's alright. We didn't end up getting through all of it (it is over a 3 hour flick), but I would recommend, if you want a good laugh (or possible nightmares) to check it out.

It looks like you can watch all of it on YouTube (just in 10 minute increments :)). Here is the first part (about 10 minutes ago), but if you watch the credits you will get a sense of the characters :)

Classic tale of a girl named Alice who follows a white rabbit down a hole into Wonderland, where she can change sizes by eating and drinking and animals talk. After escaping the disturbing Queen of Hearts, she finds that she has ended up on the other side of the looking glass in Looking Glass Land and that there is a mind-created Jabberwocky after her. With the advice of a wise owl and royal chess pieces on her mind, she ventures home, vowing to grow up in this two-part movie which remains most faithful to the original stories written by Lewis Carroll.

wow, strange...all of these actors were super popular in their day! doesn't seem like something that most of them would be involved in.

I'm literally cracking up right now! "Interesting" is probably the best way to describe it :)
