a little ironic

When I think of Alice in Wonderland I don’t initially picture the Walt Disney film.  In my opinion, the definitive adaptation is the 1985 tv movie musical version.  I LOVED that thing! I was obsessed for a time.  I recorded it and watched it over and over and over again.  The cast included Sammy Davis, Jr, Shelley Winters, Sherman Hemsley (sp?), Scott Baio, Red Buttons, Ringo Starr, Patrick Duffy, Beau and Lloyd Bridges, Pat Morita, Jonathan Winters, Sally Struthers, Ann Jillian, and…. Carol Channing as the “White” Queen!
