Saturday Morning Cartoon

Tim Burton has made another adaptation or at least a follow up to the popular Alice in Wonderland novels by Lewis Carroll. For a kid’s story, I’ve always found the novels to be kind of disturbing in an entertaining sort of way.

There have been adaptations of the story for over a hundred years now. The very first was a silent film from 1903.

The story has also been the inspiration for several cartoons – some of them borrowing the plot and working their own characters into it.

One of the more surreal adaptations was from Czech filmmaker Jan Švankmajer. In 1988 he made a full length stop motion version called Něco z Alenky (Alice).
