The film took five years to produce and cost $3 million, although it was in development for over 10 years before entering production.
It premiered in England two days before being released in the US.
Based on the famous books written by Lewis Carroll, "Alice in Wonderland" and "Through the Looking Glass."
Originally, Walt Disney planned to have real actors playing Alice and her sister at the beginning and end, with the rest of the film being an animated dream.
The Doorknob is the only character in the Disney movie that never appeared in Lewis Carroll's stories.
It was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Scoring of a Musical Picture.
Doorknob: Read the directions and directly you will be directed in the right direction.
Queen of Hearts: Off with their heads.
Cheshire Cat: Oh, by the way, if you'd really like to know, he went that way.
Alice: Who did?
Cheshire Cat: The White Rabbit.
Alice: He did?
Cheshire Cat: He did what?
Alice: Went that way.
Cheshire Cat: Who did?
Alice: The White Rabbit.
Cheshire Cat: What rabbit?
Alice: But didn't you just say - I mean - Oh, dear.
Cheshire Cat: Can you stand on your head?
Dormouse: Twinkle twinkle, little bat,
How I wonder where you're at?
Up above the world so high,
Like a tea tray in the sky.

The all-cartoon Musical Wonderfilm!
On the title page at the beginning of the film, Lewis Carroll's name is spelled incorrectly.
When she eats the cookie in the White Rabbit's house, Alice says "Oh no, no, not again!" but her mouth doesn't move.
When Alice sings "In the Golden Afternoon" the flowers behind her are singing along, but only Alice's voice is heard.
In the Mad Tea Party scene, the March Hare's teacup is cut in half, but a few frames later it is cut in half the other way.
