I don’t know what it is about that story. I love it. Honestly the Disney version always kind of freaked me out when it was a kid but as an adult I enjoy it a lot more. At least now it doesn’t give me nightmares… most of the time. I haven’t seen nearly all the film versions which are listed here. I was excited to find out my favorite version is currently available (in 14 parts) on YouTube though. I tried adding it to my Blockbuster list a long time ago but it’s always a “long wait” so I have yet to get it mailed to me. Now I don’t have to worry about it. Here is part number one:
I’m a bit embarrassed that it’s a Hallmark film. But I don’t care, it’s still pretty awesome.
Also, I did see the Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland but that can’t qualify as my favorite version for two reasons. One, I just didn’t like how Alice was played. She wasn’t very likable and that kind of messed up the movie for me. Two, it’s not the “classic” Alice in Wonderland story. It’s more like a return to Wonderland. It was a fabulous movie but it didn’t unseat my standing favorite version.
What’s your favorite version of Alice in Wonderland?
