Funky Stop Motion Snark on YouTube

YouTube seems to be a great source of unusual items lately, and this is no exception!

1954 Kraft Television Theatre Alice on YouTube

From our elevator buddy Jenna comes this link to something I’ve never seen, but is way cool.  A 1954 TV version of Alice on the Kraft Television Theatre, featuring Edgar Bergen and Charlie McCarthy.  Interesting that they are involved as they were also on the Disney TV show One Hour in Wonderland on Christmas 1950 that promoted the soon-to-be-released Disney animated film.  Share and enjoy!

Dora in Wonderland Movie

This just in from our Fearless Leader:

Nickelodeon’s animated preschool bilingual heroine Dora the Explorer becomes the latest to bop through a looking-glass. Originally aired as “Dora in Wonderland” in March (Season 7, Episode 16), it is now available on YouTube and DVD. It features Mel Brooks as the Mad Hatter and Alan Cumming as the White Rabbit.

New Alice Themed Cosmetics at the DisneyStore

For your own little Alice (or even you), Disney has released a new line of cosmetics with an Alice theme under their Beautifully Disney collection, appropriately titled Curiouser and Curiouser.  I especially like the Non Sensical Nail Polish.

Abandoned Alice in Wonderland Theme Park in Korea?!

I have never heard of this, but looks like it must’ve been quite bizarre.  Blogger Lindsay Eryn stumbled upon the abandoned park and shared some photos.  Sadly the park has since been completely demolished.

The Gardener’s Dream

A very nice stop motion piece based on “The Mad Gardener’s Song” from Sylvie & Bruno.

Huffington Post Article on Spring Meeting and Alice150

LCSNA member Cathy Rubin has published an article on the Huffington Post all about Alice – Alice150 that is. Spread the word, Alice150 is only 15 months away!

New World Jabberwocky

From our good friends at the Cassady Collection at USC (hosts of our Fall Meeting 2013) comes this entry to their annual Wonderland Award.  Quite stunning.  You can see the entire collection of videos uploaded by the Wonderland Awards on their YouTube channel here.

Tastes Like…Cherry Tart. Goodness!

How cool is this?  A chef actually created a drink that has all the flavors of Alice’s Drink Me bottle!  Although he does need to come up with a better vessel in my opinion.   Barkeep, a round for the table please!
