Alice is the main character from the original books Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and its satisfying sequel, Through the Looking-Glass, and What Alice Found There by Lewis Carroll. She is also prominent in most expansions of the "Wonderland" myths.

Alice Kingsleigh

She was first portrayed in film by May Clark in the 1903 silent version of Alice in Wonderland. Most recently she has been portrayed by actress Mia Wasikowska as a more mature, grown-up Alice in Disney's 2010 semi-sequel, live-action/CGI film Alice in Wonderland, Directed by Tim Burton. An elderly and younger Alice from Disney Animated Canon is voiced by Kathryn Beaumont.

Appearance[]

Alice is a very lovely, pretty, and beautiful young girl with shoulder-length blonde hair and striking blue eyes. She usually wears a childish blue Victorian dress and a white pinafore apron. She also wears white tights with Mary Jane Shoes. She's shown as ghostly pale, like many other English people. Her hair, which is as yellow and blonde as corn, is usually down, showing her curls.

Lifestyle & Personality[]

The fictional character of Alice lives a posh lifestyle in the mid- to late 1800s in London, England. She is highly intelligent, and like any well-raised girl, she is sophisticated and a great thinker for a seven-and-a-half-year-old child. Alice is extremely brave, not being afraid to venture far out into new places or the unknown, and she will become determined to investigate anything curious that makes her wonder.

Alice does not have any friends, nor is she an outcast or loner. Much of her time is spent with family, such as her older sister, who gives her daily lessons because Alice is homeschooled. Outwardly, Alice is proper, well-behaved, well-groomed, and poised. She has a charming elegance and grace beyond her years. She's a devoted lady, always giving a polite curtsey when introducing herself. For a little girl, she is very well spoken, having a natural English accent. She can memorize things very quickly and recite poetry and nursery rhymes with ease. Alice knows all of the rules of a young lady's etiquette because she was brought up by a rather wealthy family from a privileged upper-class lifestyle. It is quite likely that she is possibly even related to royalty through marriage or other aristocratic figures of high society and respected positions during the time the stories take place.

Despite her charismatic charm, Alice can be very immature at times and innocently mischievous. She may enjoy acting in a fancy fashion or acting much older than she truly is to impress, but she is undeniably a very curious little thing. This trait normally gets the better of Alice and leads her into many chaotic situations. She's slightly lazy at times, often seen daydreaming or sleeping during the day instead of doing anything productive, as she dislikes books with no pictures and loathes her daily history lessons. Alice would much rather take a relaxing canoe ride on the lakes of Oxford while admiring the lily pads and listening to fantasy stories. Or Alice would rather climb trees, build a card house, make daisy chains to wear, or even adorn her little pet kitten, Dinah, with a flower crown. Instead of listening to the advice of others who are more mature and wiser, such as her big older sister Alice, she does everything according to her own morals and beliefs. Not even Dinah understands why her little mistress desires a "world of her own."

Surprisingly, Alice is very good at giving herself advice, but she seldom follows it. Because of this, she is led by her own subconscious into one silly or outrageous scenario after another. When Alice enters the bizarre dimension of Wonderland and later steps into the alternate realm of Wonderland, the Looking Glass, she finds it harder and harder to maintain her composure and keep her patience because of all the poppycock and nonsense that occurs in these strange, undiscovered places. Alice can also be unintentionally mischievous and hypocritical, for when anyone says something incorrectly in a sentence, Alice will call them out on it and correct them on the "vulgar" use of grammar. Yet at times Alice herself does not speak correctly, but she never catches herself slipping or making the mistakes she accuses others of being guilty of. This causes Alice to come off as arrogant and narcissistic at times, even though she means well. Despite her flaws, Alice is a kind-hearted and compassionate young lady who helps others in need.

Alice's Adventures in Wonderland[]

One warm summer day, on a golden afternoon, on exactly May the 4th, Alice and her bookworm big sister went to relax and read next to a large tree under the cool shade of the flowery meadows by the riverbanks of London. The hot sun made Alice feel rather lazy and stupid. Even though she was too sleepy to collect flowers to make a daisy chain to wear as a crown and ever so bored by her sister's book because it had no pictures within it, Alice soon slipped into a midsummer daydream.

Alice Falls Down to Wonderland.

Suddenly out of nowhere, she noticed a White Rabbit with large pink eyes who was dressed up in a fancy coat while carrying a pocket watch. To Alice, the rabbit seemed to be late for something significant as he rushed right by her in a panic. Filled with a great curiosity that she could not ignore, Alice quickly followed him to see where he was off to in such a hurry. When the Rabbit came to another tree nearby, he went down his dark rabbit hole. Alice, who was running after him, followed the rabbit as he ventured inside of it as well. In the process, Alice accidentally lost her footing in the darkness, fell, and tumbled down a long way into a tunnel-hole that went straight down into the ground below. Further and further she went, passing a multitude of random objects such as clocks and maps, furniture and books, even globes of the earth and containers of orange marmalade. Everything simply floated in its place, stuck and levitating within the air. After thinking to herself for a rather long time and wondering if she would fall so far that she'd reach the other side of the earth, Alice began to doze off. She was quickly awakened when she reached the bottom of this tunnel at last and continued her search for the late white rabbit. While looking for the rabbit, Alice found herself in an endlessly long and dim hallway. The hallway had many doors. After looking in the hallway, she discovered a curtain drapery, and behind it was a little door. Alice opened the tiny door to see the loveliest garden on the other side. The garden was filled with gorgeous flowers, just in bloom, marble water fountains, and even garden mazes. Alice tried to squeeze through, but it was much too small to get through.

Alice then began to also search for a way into the garden. As the adventures got "curiouser and curiouser", Alice found herself in a bizarre realm, one of which went against any type of civilized logic. She found a three-legged glass table that had a bottle marked "Drink Me." After confirming it is not poison, she drinks it and grows smaller. Delighted that she can now fit through the door, she is saddened to realize she left the key on the table. After failed attempts to retrieve it, she finds a cake marked "Eat Me." After eating the whole thing, Alice is distraught as she grows to the size of a house.

Alice in the Hallway of Tears.

Throughout the story, Alice encounters many curious things, such as finding a grey talking rat while swimming in a pool of her own tears. Or the talking flowers or crying infants who turned into pigs. She eventually met a narcissistic blue caterpillar who smoked hookah all day long while he sat upon a mushroom, waiting to turn into a butterfly. Alice also encountered a talking Cheshire Cat and even a very silly mad hatter who was forever stuck in his own world of a never-ending limbo of teatime.

"Teatime..

Alice finally made her way into the Queen's rose garden. But there she encountered her royal Majesty of Wonderland, the Queen of Hearts. She was a mean and controlling Queen with a cutthroat, sociopathic personality who dominated even the King, who seemed terrified of her, as well as the rest of her royal subjects who resided within her red court. The Queen also forced her subjects to play unfair games of croquet with pink flamingos as mallets. The Queen cheated at these games to win every time, and everybody else let her, for when the Queen became angry or didn't get her way, she would lose her temper at anyone over the slightest mistake. Such as someone eating her tarts. and she'd fiercely scream out loud: "OFF WITH THEIR HEAD!" And the unfortunate person would be taken away to their fate of being beheaded. After Alice made the mistake of upsetting the Red Queen, the poor girl ended up in a court of law with a jury full of funny talking animals. There, the people of Wonderland began to gang up on her and wanted to take her head. But Alice was not about to let herself be decapitated over such ridiculous rules.

"OFF WITH HER HEAD!!!"

She suddenly began to grow larger and larger until her head hit the top of the ceiling. She was an enormous giant, overpowering the entire court and evoking death threats from the King and Queen. Ultimately, Alice lost her temper and screamed back at everyone around her, saying that they were all nothing but a silly pack of cards. This angered the court, and they all turned on Alice under the red Queen's orders. Just as everyone was closing in on Alice and the pack of cards cornered her to seal her doom, she luckily woke up and found herself next to her older sister on the bank once again, assuming that it all was nothing more than a mere dream that she had dreamed on that warm summer day on that golden afternoon.

Alice's Adventures Through the Looking Glass & What She Found There[]

Our tale deals with a slightly older Alice and happens indoors on a snowy winter night exactly six months after her adventures in Wonderland, on November 4th. One random evening, Alice is bored as usual and is left all alone in a room inside her mansion home with no one for company but the soothing crackling of the fireplace. Sitting in a big, grown-up chair next to a window, Alice watched the snowflakes fall from the sky outside. Alice wishes to herself that she were old enough to join everyone else at the bonfire that is being held. Unable to go, Alice sulks about in a lethargic state. But her pet cat, Dinah, on the other hand, is now the mother cat of a litter consisting of one black and one white baby kitten.

Alice talks to Dinah's Kitten.

Looking at her own reflection in a large looking glass hung up upon the wall above a high mantel, Alice began wondering what life was like on the other side of this mirror. When she tried to enter the mirror, she found she could step right into it and enter the alternative world on the other side, where everything was the opposite of what she was used to—even time in this realm ran backwards. Here, she quickly finds a book with looking-glass poetry, a story titled Jabberwocky, whose reversed printing on the pages can be read only by holding it up to the mirror.

Alice also observes that the chess pieces in the room have come to life, though they remain small enough for her to pick up. Suddenly she finds herself shrunken down several sizes. Then Alice meets the Red Queen. The Red Queen shows her a view of the countryside, which is divided like an enormous chessboard. Alice asks to be allowed to play in the giant living game of chess, and the Red Queen assigns her the role of the White Pawn. Alice is to start in the Second Square, cross six brooks the divisions between squares, and end up in the Eighth Square, where she will become a Queen.

The world of the Looking Glass

Alice met many new characters and beings. On her adventure, she met the garden of live flowers, Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum, the White Knight, and even figures from Mother Goose's nursery rhymes like Humpty Dumpty. All while on her quest to reach the end of the Wonderland chessboard and become an official Queen.

Queen Alice!

In the end, Alice finds herself growing back to her normal size again. She then picks up the Red Queen and shakes her like a saltshaker until the piece turns into a kitten. When this happens, Alice suddenly awakens to find herself back in the original room of the Looking Glass. The story ends with Alice recalling the speculation of events and that everything may have, in fact, been a dream, yet Alice might herself be no more than someone's dream or a figment of someone else's imagination. One final poem is inserted by the author, Lewis Carroll, as a sort of epilogue ending, which suggests that life itself is but a dream.

The Alice behind the Alice[]

To most people who are familiar with Wonderland and the classic tale of little girls falling down rabbit holes and murderous croquet-playing Queens, Alice is just an imaginary figure who finds herself in impossibly illogical situations due to her burning curiosity. She is a popular and iconic character of fiction who was created in the year 1865 by children's author and storyteller Lewis Carroll. She is the protagonist of the stories and 90% of all the adaptations made after.

The real Alice who inspired the book.

The inspiration for Alice was actually based off of a real child: a close friend of Carroll who was also named Alice (Alice Liddell). Carroll would tell stories about strange adventures underground to entertain Alice and her other sisters with innocent fun on warm summer days. While having little picnics on the vast meadows near the lakes of Oxford and London, reading poems, having luncheon with tea, painting pictures, building card houses, and making flower crowns, Carroll and his sophisticated party very much enjoyed these funny stories to pass the time on those golden afternoons. Later on, Lewis Carroll would collect these stories and go on to write his famous classic book, originally titled "Alice's Adventures Underground", which he would dedicate to the real-life Alice Liddel.

There are a few available books written about the real Alice and the relationship she had with Carroll. Specifically, one titled (Alice I Have Been) by author Melanie Benjamin and another titled (She Haunts Me So) by author Jenny Woolf. Both novels are slightly romanticized in their writing but are mainly based on facts.

Character Appearance[]

The original illustrations of Alice were entirely in black and white, so her character's color had not been officially established. Her very first color illustrations, in The Nursery Alice, were personally adjusted and colored by John Tenniel, who shows her dress as bright yellow with satin blue trim, a white lace pinafore, and light blue (sometimes blue and black striped) stockings/pantyhose with pale skin and wavy, dirty blonde hair with no bow, ribbon, or headband, and shod in polished black Mary-Jane style shoes with thin buckles.

Alice as she appeared in the first colored illustration.

It was Disney's classic version of Alice that helped make the popular image of the character of Alice in general. Disney's Alice appeared to have thick, shoulder-length blonde hair adorned with a black ribbon tied in a bow, big blue eyes with long lashes, red or dark pink lips, hot pink nails, fair skin, rosy cheeks, and was wearing a cerulean blue short puffy-sleeved knee-length dress with a white pinafore, a corset, frilly white knee-length pantalettes, a matching petticoat, pure white thigh-high lace stockings and shod in black strapped, polished Mary Jane shoes, also with thin buckles.

This Disney look has perhaps become the classic and most widely recognized Alice in Wonderland dress in later works and costumes.

Tenniel drew Alice in two variants: for Through the Looking-Glass, her pinafore is more ruffled, and she is shown in striped black and white stockings, an image that has remained in much of the later art. Also, in Through the Looking-Glass, her hair is held back with a wide ribbon, normally depicted as black. In honor of Alice, such hair bands are sometimes called "Alice Bands," particularly in the UK.

Alice goes to Oz[]

Many fans of L. Frank Baum's Oz stories and fans of Wonderland and the world through the Looking Glass have used the two elements and characters to parallel each other in entertaining stories.

A modern-day Alice finds herself in the Land of Oz, Oh No!

Alice's character has been given life within the Oz stories in spin-offs that combine the Wonderland creatures and the characters from the land of Oz. Alice has teamed up with Dorothy Gale in comic strips and books. These comics are aimed at more mature comic readers, but they are enjoyable nonetheless and are collectible items.

Alice and Dina have tea and converse with Dorothy and Toto.

It is rumored that the protagonist child character Dorothy Gale from The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, published in 1900 and written by children's author L. Frank Baum, was inspired by and loosely based upon a few of the personality traits of Alice. Dorothy Gale is the American version of what Alice is for England.

Alice in Wonderland-The Circa (1903) Silent Film[]

IMG 20140411 055021

The first Alice on film was over a hundred years ago. All of the actors and actresses by now are all long dead. Despite that fact, this is still a very famous and well-known version; it is credited for being the first version out of the dozens of Alice films and plays and can be watched anytime on YouTube.

Alice in Wonderland (1931)[]

This was the first sound version of the story, directed by Bud Pollard. Ruth Gilbert portrays Alice. It can be viewed on YouTube[1].

Alice in Wonderland 1933 version[]

This film stars Ethel Griffies and Charlotte Henry. It was a box office flop when it was released.

The character of Alice is played by an adult actress, which was very common in that era. Not until The Wizard of Oz in 1939 did critics feel that fantasy could be successfully done on stage with real-life actors.

Alice in Wonderland (1949)[]

Carol Marsh portrayed Alice in this film adaptation directed by Dallas Bower. Its framing sequences are all live action, but during the main scenes in Wonderland, Marsh is the only real person shown, interacting with stop-motion puppet characters created by Lou Bunin.

1951 Disney Film[]

Walt Disney brings Lewis Carroll's fantasy story to life in this well-done animated classic. Even though many elements from the book were dropped, such as the duchess with the baby pig and mock turtle, this version is without a doubt the most famous Alice adaptation made.

Alice is the protagonist of Disney's animated film Alice in Wonderland, voiced by Kathryn Beaumont. Alice was drawn looking a bit older than her storybook counterpart, who was intended to be six and a half. Here Alice is 10 years old, but still keeps the wonder and childlike qualities of a young, innocent, well-mannered, and very beautiful girl.

Alice-wonderland

In addition to her beauty, she is portrayed as being very pedantic, cute, loving, generous, shy, sweet, elegant, and gentle, although once she falls into Wonderland, she finds it harder and harder to maintain her composure. She is also kind and cheerful. She is shown to be determined, but her determination is often overpowered by her temper, seeing as she does not give up on finding the White Rabbit until she gets frustrated and is easily put off by rudeness. She and her sister have two different appearances in the film.

Alice's Adventures in Wonderland (1972)[]

Alice is portrayed in a 1985 television miniseries by Natalie Gregory. This series actually featured many characters overlooked by the Disney film, including the dreaded Jabberwock.

HBO's 1985 Dreamchild[]

The true story that started it all...

Dreamchild-1

This gorgeous yet underrated 80's movie Dreamchild is loosely based upon the man who created the story of Wonderland, Lewis Carroll. Fact and fantasy come together when Lewis Carroll (an awkward mathematics teacher of Oxford London who was young at heart) develops intimate feelings and falls deeply in love with an aristocratic yet headstrong adolescent girl from a high society family named Alice. Who also just happened to be the inspiration behind the original writing of the Wonderland book? Taking place in the circa-Victorian era, the characters of Wonderland are brought to life by Jim Henson's state-of-the-art puppetry for its time in this haunting and at times mildly disturbing tale that takes its viewer into a nostalgic and magical world that no longer exists.

Mad Hatter and March Hare and the Door-mouse await...

A mysterious and interesting plot line of an intriguing dreamlike quality that shows the tender, complex, and eventually controversial relationship between Alice and Lewis himself. A true story about youth, imagination, and unrequited love. That will haunt you long after watching.


Hello Kitty & friends in Wonderland 1980s[]

Krchy fig3 Kitty Alice

In this adorable, animated version of the story, Hello Kitty takes a magical trip to Wonderland as she plays Alice herself.


1988 Czech Film[]

Alice was portrayed by Kristýna Kohoutová in Jan Švankmajer's avant-garde, surrealist film version of Alice in Wonderland, which combines live action with stop-motion animation. Alice herself narrates the dialogue of all the other characters in the film. Camilla Power was the voice actress for Alice in the English-language versions. Švankmajer's intention was to show the dream-like aspects of Carroll's story rather than interpreting it as a fairy tail.

A1

This artistic version of Lewis Carroll's classic tale, Alice is a curious child who appears to be a loner. Just like the original story, she desperately follows a White Rabbit doll stuffed with sawdust into "Wonderland," which is a strange mix of a household-like areas with very little concern for logical space or size and its inhabitants tend to be strange mixtures of junk and other useless rubbish and rotting dead animals, such as a bed with bird legs, or a stuffed lizard with glass eyes. After returning home, she ponders if she would cut off the head of the stuffed rabbit or not with its own scissors.


Alice through the Looking Glass 1998[]

In the modern 1998 version of the sequel to the first story, Alice through the Looking Glass, Alice is a mother who reads the Looking Glass story to her daughter before bedtime. Before she can finish, Alice falls asleep next to her daughter and dreams of what she was reading.

Hallmarks Alice's Adventures in Wonderland 1999[]

In the well-received 1999 adaptation made for TV, which won four Emmys, Alice is played by Tina Majorino. The movie combines portions of Alice in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass and features such talents as Whoopi Goldberg (the Cheshire Cat) and Martin Short (the Mad Hatter).

Tumblr maoln1ViMw1r57qc5o1 500

These characters are first seen at the beginning of the movie as guests at a party Alice is attending before being re-invented as characters in Wonderland. Other elements of the film also suggest that Alice is dreaming/creating the world with her subconscious. This version of Alice is the most faithful adaptation of the books and keeps Alice's dress yellow as it was in the very first colored illustration of the character.


Disney's 2010 Adaptation[]

A grown-up Alice is back in Disney's 2010 live-action and CGI adaptation, directed by Tim Burton. Alice Kingsleigh was played by Mia Wasikowska.

Alice...

After losing her beloved father, Alice is a melancholy 19-year-old who doesn't really fit in with her upper-class, privileged Victorian lifestyle in a world of high society. She has no friends, is unmotivated, and is depressed. Too much of her mother's concern is for her, and despite her character flaws, Alice is mature, intelligent, a strong-willed girl who always speaks her mind, and she has an independent personality, which is frowned upon in young ladies of her time. She truly wants to make her own choices in life instead of having everything chosen for her, such as picking out her own husband and not being forced into an arranged and loveless marriage. After running away from a British garden party that goes terribly wrong, Alice falls down the rabbit hole and is ultimately brought back to Wonderland (by McTwisp) to slay the Jabberwocky.

Throughout the film, Alice reunites with old, unfamiliar friends such as Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum, the Mad Hatter, and even comes across new individuals such as the White Queen (the younger and much more beautiful good sister of the Red Queen). During her escapes, Alice insists that she is simply trapped within her own mind again and that everything around her is just another one of her bizarre and surreal recurring dreams, or nightmares, as she referred to them as a little girl when her father was still alive. Alice has had dreams of Wonderland since childhood, so she believes her feelings of doubt that none of her surroundings actually exist are correct. Towards the end of her adventure in Wonderland, she slowly begins to realize and see that the dream and delusions she's experiencing are really repressed memories and that everything is in fact real. Alice finally remembers her first trip to Wonderland all those years ago. (Which, it turns out, she incorrectly called, as the land is actually named Underland.) Alice accepts that she was/is indeed the right girl who made a long-lasting and infamous impression on Wonderland and all the illogical people and creatures who inhabit it.

As everyone keeps going on about who she really is, Alice's return becomes a rite of passage as she discovers herself and faces her fears head-on to not only save Wonderland and fulfill its long-awaited prophecy but also to save herself. While finding her true calling and way in life, Alice will learn to believe in the impossible in this dark "coming of age" fantasy film.

Miniseries[]

In 2009, Syfy aired a two-part miniseries titled Alice that was set to be a reimagining of the original story. Alice is a brunette in her early twenties. Because of her father's apparent abandonment of her and her mother, Alice has difficulties trusting men, preventing her from being part of a successful relationship. When her boyfriend Jack Chase (Heart) is kidnapped, she follows him into a reimagined Wonderland. She is portrayed by Caterina Scorsone.

Dora in Wonderland[]

In this episode of Dora, the Explorer, Dora, and Boots chase one of their kittens into Wonderland, where Dora is dressed up as Alice.

Novels[]

In Frank Beddor's novel, The Looking Glass Wars, an adaptation of the Alice books, Alice is re-imagined as Alyss Heart, the rightful heir to the throne of Wonderland and a warrior princess with magical powers of her own. The preface to the story says that Alyss fled to Earth, where she met Lewis Carroll and told him her story. He turned it into a nonsensical fairytale, in which he even misspelled her name. Jeff Noon wrote a third Alice book, Automated Alice, in which Alice, still of a similar age, goes "through the clock's workings" with the guidance of the bird Whipporwill. Noon's depiction of Alice is quite similar to Carroll's and is an imaginative blend of the absurdities of the earlier Alice novels with modern conceptions of logic, mechanization, and cyberspace. Carroll's own interests in logic and metaphysics are clearly the inspiration for Noon's approach.

American McGee's Alice[]

In the 2000 PC game American McGee's Alice, Alice is portrayed as a tortured soul. A beautiful young woman with straight, dark brunette hair and emerald-green eyes. She has a pale complexion and a Gothic and melancholy personality due to the traumatizing experiences of her past that haunt her and which she has been forced to cope with under tragic circumstances. This version of Alice is voiced by Susie Brann.

Alice-madness-returns-5-9-2013

Her dress in the saga is a navy-blue dress, representing a sailor's outfit with a pure white apron, whose pockets have astronomical signs. She wears black and white striped socks and knee-high black combat boots with silver buckles. Even though it varies from her promotional image to in-game.

Set after the two books, the game's plot tells that Alice was orphaned at 8 years of age when her parents and older sister were burned alive in an accidental fire caused by Dinah (in Madness Returns, it is supposed to be different). Afterwards, she falls into a catatonic state and is condemned to Rutledge's Asylum for treatment. She remains there for 10 years, faced with her own survivor's guilt and the mistreatment of patients in the mental hospitals of the time. After many years, the White Rabbit arrives in her cell and tells her she must return to Wonderland and save the creatures there from the tyrannical Queen of Hearts. By doing so, she not only saves Wonderland but also her own sanity.

In Alice: Madness Returns, the second game following American McGee's Alice, Alice Liddell, comes back.

Set a year after being released from Rutledge (after defeating the Queen of Hearts), Alice is still an orphan and now works for her psychiatrist, Dr Angus Bumby. After seeing visions and hallucinations of Wonderland being destroyed once again, Alice must set out on an adventure to destroy this new villain and find the truth about her family's fire to free Wonderland's peace again.

Kingdom Hearts[]

Disney's 1951 version of Alice is seen as one of the most important characters of the video game series Kingdom Hearts. She is one of the Princesses of Heart — seven maidens of pure light needed to open the final Door to Darkness, leading to Kingdom Hearts, the heart of all worlds — and the first Princess of Heart the protagonist, Sora, meets in the first game. Alice also appears in the sequel, Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories and its remake, Kingdom Hearts Re:Chain of Memories, as a figment of the protagonist's memory.

She is also mentioned in Kingdom Hearts II even though she doesn't make an appearance. In this episode, when Sora and his friends need the password to Ansem the Wise's database, the DTD, they realize that DTD stands for Door to Darkness. As all seven Princesses of Heart are required to open the Door to Darkness, they soon learn that the password is their names. Alice's name is mentioned as part of the list.

Alice in the Country of the Heart~Wonderful Wonder World~[]

In the otome game "Heart no Kuni no Alice, she appears as Alice Liddell, who was kidnapped by Peter White into Wonderland and meets bizarre characters that fall in love with her. She also appears in the sequels "Clover no Kuni no Alice" and "Joker no Kuni no Alice."

Appearances in Other Media[]

Anime-Alice

Alice also appears in her anime adaptation by Nippon Animation as a fair-skinned girl with indigo eyes, red hair, a hat, a red and white dress, white pantyhose, and black Mary Jane shoes. She appears with Benny Bunny and has many adventures in Wonderland.

"Woody Allen's film Alice, while not a direct adaptation, did follow a woman who has a series of surreal adventures. Alice also appears as a college-attending teenager alongside Wendy Darling, Dorothy Gale, and Susan Pevensie in Chicago in 2005 and 2006, in the comic book series The Oz/Wonderland Chronicles. Alice also appears as an aging woman in Alan Moore's graphic novel, Lost Girls.

In the Tokyo Disneyland DreamLights version of the Main Street Electrical Parade, Alice is voiced by Kat Cressida. Kristýna Kohoutová portrayed her in Svankmajer's Alice (her English dub was done by Camilla Power). In the Japanese version of Kingdom Hearts, she was voiced by Mika Doi.

Also, in the anime Pandora Hearts, there are two characters loosely based on Alice. Alice the B. Rabbit and The Will of the Abyss. Both characters share their first name with Alice, and seeing as many aspects of Pandora Hearts are based on Alice in Wonderland, it can be assumed their names are as well.

Alice appears in the novel "Wonderland Revisited and the Games Alice Played There," where she disembarks to meet a number of the inhabitants of Wonderland, including the Red Queen, the Jack of Diamonds, the Mahjong Dragons, the Red King, and the Red King's Gamekeeper.

She appears in the British film "Malice in Wonderland" as an American student who suffers amnesia after getting hit by a black cab and finding herself in Wonderland.

In the Dora the Explorer episode "Dora in Wonderland," Dora dresses up as Alice.

In the DS game "A Witch's Tale," a mystical savior named Alice appeared and used the Witch's magic against them and sealed them away. Also, the main character is named Liddell, who is a witch-in-training.

Alice is mentioned in a book when a cruel mother says, "Come now, Jessie. You're just as crazy as that Alice girl from Crumberlind." The daughter responds by saying, "She was from Wonderland, mum."

She appears in the arcade game Märchen Maze, as a girl with brown pigtails and a red dress. She travels with Time Usagi, the white rabbit, to defeat the Queen of Darkness.

In episode 13 of the anime 'Ouran High School Host Club' the main character, Haruhi, takes on the role of Alice after falling down a hole trying to follow Usa-chan. There, in her own Wonderland, her friends also make an appearance similar to Wonderland characters (ex: Tamaki as the Mad Hatter; Mori as the Dormouse), and she also meets her mother (who has died). She later wakes up to find it was all just a dream. In the original manga, both Tamaki, the twins, and Haruhi (although the previous two are re-scripted as the Mad Hatter and the Cheshire Cat, respectively), take on the role of Alice to begin with, with Honey taking the form of the white rabbit and Mori appearing as the baby.

The main character of the anime Kiniro Mosaic, Alice, is a direct parody of this Alice; she constantly makes references to Alice in Wonderland, and for some characters, she resembles the White Rabbit too. Her love interest, Shino, appears as the Mad Hatter in the credits.

In Batman: The Animated Series, a girl is based on Alice, having the same features and the same name as her, in the episode "Mad as a Hatter." However, she isn't seen again after the episode.

In Dead by Daylight, Kate Denson has a new Costume that is named "Wonderful Alice".
