To-Do List

Alice's Adventures in Wonderland - 1972   Alice leaves the house, taking the baby with her, but it very quickly turns into a piglet. She then finds herself in the March Hare's garden and joins a tea party with the Mad Hatter and the Dormouse. They all sing The Pun Song and play musical chairs, in a time-lapse sequence that resembles a Benny Hill comedy chase scene (Hill's television show was popular at the time).

  Insulted by the Hatter, Alice departs and returns to the hall of doors. Shrinking once more, she steps through the tiny doorway, into the palace gardens. She meets the playing card gardeners, who are painting white roses red, and witnesses the royal procession.
  Within moments of meeting Alice, the Queen of Hearts sings Off With Her Head, but allows her to join a game of crazy croquet. Alice is reacquainted with the White Rabbit, the Cheshire Cat and the Duchess, before the Queen takes her to the seashore to meet the Gryphon and the Mock Turtle, who reminisce about their school days and sing Will You Walk a Little Faster?, with even more Benny Hill style capering.

   Suddenly it's time for the trial of the Knave of Hearts, who is charged with stealing the Queen's tarts. Inside the courtroom, the Hatter and the Duchess's cook take the witness stand, while Alice begins to grow again. Then Alice herself is called as a witness. The White Rabbit reads the evidence, singing They Told Me You Had Been to Her, but when Alice objects to the Queen's command of "sentence first, verdict afterwards", there is uproar in the court. As the pack of cards loom all around her, Alice tries to defend herself, but wakes up back on the riverbank. Her adventures in Wonderland were only "a curious dream".
  As the group row back home, Alice ponders the meaning of her imaginary experience and sings The Me I Never Knew, while the credits roll.
