I have this in a cartoon collection, but completely forgot about it! Thanks for bringing it to mind again! :D

I think this Jabberwock (not Jabberwocky, apparently Woolverton watched this as a child :p) has to be one of the goofiest looking when it comes to a comparison of the original image and some of the other ways it has been portrayed.

Isn't it fun :D I'd never seen it before

The Jabberwock(y) is very silly-looking, particularly as the other characters are quite close to the Tenniels

Nice to see The Gryphon and The Mock Turtle getting some acknowledgement for once, and I thought it was interesting that they called The Hatter 'The Mad Hatter' - so not just a Disney thing

I too watched the Betty in Blunderland video. That was so funny. I remember some of the characters, but not like the pretty soup who posted ahead of me.

I agree, sometimes I wonder why it is that they and the Duchess rarely made it into things like this despite them all appearing in multiple chapters of the book. DIS:-S

Ed Wynn must have been popular in his day; Gandy Goose in Terrytoons is based on him. I remember him in Mary Poppins playing the goofy uncle.

Ed Wynn was quite popular Lois, as this article illustrates:

He gets a mention in one of the Jeeves and Wooster stories as *someone famous* who they encounter while they're in New York city

Ooh, lovely. :-) Old cartoons are always wonderful.
