Alice in Wonderland Night Thread

This is a scene from the 1985 made-for-TV musical Alice in Wonderland, featuring a wonderful performance by Carol Channing. The film had a star-studded cast, and the songs were all composed by Steve Allen. The musical performances include:

Part 1 – Alice in Wonderland

Part 2 – Alice Through The Looking-Glass

The film also featured Red Buttons as The White Rabbit, Roddy McDowall as The March Hare, Arte Johnson as The Dormouse, Sid Caesar as The Gryphon, Jack Warden as The Owl, Donna Mills as The Rose, Sally Struthers as The Tiger Lily, Merv Griffin as The Conductor, Patrick Duffy as The Goat, Steve Allen as The Gentleman in Paper Suit, Pat Morita as The Horse, George Gobel as The Gnat, Jonathan Winters as Humpty Dumpty, Ernest Borgnine as The Lion, and Beau Bridges as The Unicorn.

And of course let’s not forget Natalie Gregory, who to date is the youngest actress to have played the role of Alice in a television or sound-film production based on Lewis Carroll’s novel, being only nine years old at the time of filming.

The film seems to have mostly been forgotten these days (though it did get issued on VHS and later on DVD). While I can hardly be objective about it due to nostalgia1, I am willing to go on record in saying that it’s a lot more fun than the 2010 film.

Optional discussion prompt: What unpopular, forgotten, or just plain weird pop culture did you enjoy as a child?
