In honor of My Bloggy Friends ( Karla :) ) who like Alice in Wonderland and are going to see Tim Burton's new version of it, I hunted deep into my bedroom closet, in the last box I looked into, to drag out my childhood memento's of Alice for your viewing pleasure :)
My Great Auntie bought me a lot of these Disney movie books, and would read them to me. :) I personally thought "Alice in Wonderland" was creepy, with weird undertones. The critters in the forest seemed to have no purpose, other than to annoy and mess with our sweet Alice. The cat was cool though. He was PINK and PURPLE. How could I not love that ? :) :) Although he was the worst tormentor of our heroine.The Caterpillar with the Hooka Pipe ? ummmmmm, what's up with that ???
And the Queen ?? Well, as Jar Jar Bing would say " How RRRRRRUUUUUUUUUDE" She was mean and frightened me. I felt so sorry for the Card men.
Now, the bunny was an ok sort of guy. But again, not in touch with reality. Here is a human girl chasing you all over the place, and you haven't even been properly introduced. Bit weird................Really.........
I must have liked Said Bunny, as I found this rubber Bunny toy in my Crown Royal bag. Did she just say, "Crown Royal bag" ? lol !! Well, Yepsie, I did. It was in the 70's when I received this book and Mr. Rabbit . Back when they had cocktail parties, and the before dinner drink. My Aunt and Uncle always had a toddy before dinner, and Crown Royal must have been a favorite, because in my toy box at their house, I had my treasures stored in Crown Royal bags. :) I still have one bag with treasures inside.
Did you notice I seemed to have chewed poor Mr. Rabbits ears ? Well, I think it might have been fair play really, considering the chase he led poor Alice on. That or maybe I was just hungry at the time:)
No, we probably wont be going to see this new movie.
But you can, and be sure to tell me all about it :)
