|First appearance||Alice's Adventures in Wonderland|
|Portrayed by||Jason Bryne (1999)|
Pat is a fictional character in Lewis Carroll’s Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. He appears in the chapter The Rabbit Sends a Little Bill. He works for the White Rabbit like his friend Bill the Lizard. Carroll never gave any description to the character other than being a gardener, although it is thought that he is a guinea pig.
When the White Rabbit mistakes Alice for his maid, Mary Ann, she eats some biscuits that make her grow. The Rabbit thinks she is a monster, so he asks Pat to climb down the chimney to get the monster out of his house. Pat refuses, so the Rabbit decides to send Bill the Lizard to climb down instead. When Bill climbs down the chimney, Alice’s arm pushes him, causing him to fly out of the chimney and back into the Rabbit’s garden.
Alice in Wonderland (1951)
In the Disney animated film, Pat is replaced by The Dodo, who actually appears in the Caucus Race. This led to a lot of confusion between the two characters, even though they had nothing in common.
