Alice through the looking glass 1998
Alice Through the Looking Glass is a 1987 Australian-Italian animated film nominally based on the novel Through the Looking-Glass by Lewis Carroll. It was directed by Andrea Bresciani and Richard Slapczynski from a screenplay by Jameson Brewer. The movie starts off with a bored Alice trapped in her house by a snow storm. The film's voice cast includes Janet Waldo as Alice, Mr. T. as the Jabberwock, Phyllis Diller as the White Queen, Jonathan Winters as Tweedledum and Tweedledee, and Alan Young as the White Knight. Much of the film consists of Alice and a jester named Tom Fool (Townsend Coleman) journeying through some of the incidents of the novel, while ultimately, the film is more about Alice finding an imaginary friend in Tom Fool than the novel's themes of logic, illogic, and reversal. The film also throws in Heffalumps, rock-throwing cavemen, Ed Sullivan, The Marx Brothers (Hal Rayle) and Humpty Dumpty (George Gobel). There is also a man made entirely out of newspaper, a talking horse and a talking goat. When Alice wakes up, her father plays a game of chess with her, which her dream journey was based on, walking from square to square on a large chessboard.
