Disny's fully-animated cartoon feature preserves the outlines of
Lewis Carroll's story while adding original whimsical touches,
suc has the pencil and eyeglass critters. The production design
is much less stodgy than the Tenniellillustrations and the fea-
ture remains one of the best the studio has ever made.
