    What was even the hell with Good Times Entertainment? How could they manage to make so many crappy animated films this quickly? And did they seriously expect to get away with ripping off Disney versions? Sure, most of these stories are in the public domain, but they knew exactly what they where doing, and used a lot of misleading imagery on the covers to trick as many people as possible >.>

      Heh, well they did get away with it besides the cover thing but the only made them have to label their versions more clearly.

        But le gaspe, Phelan, how dare you review the actual movie and talk about the plot and attempts at characterisation instead of her dress colour being pink? I mean what are you, a reviewer?

            (looking at your comment awkwardly) uh, you do know I was being sarcastic Phelous, right? I haven’t been on YouTube for quite a while, so I have no idea what you’re talking about. I’m too busy commenting, making DVD’s, and listening to commentary tracks on RedLetterMedia to check on some comments from a completely different website. and even still it makes no difference. man, even when I’m actually just kidding around, some people still just take it as being serious. trust me, I’ve been in that position before. but still…..

      If I remember correctly it’s because before they knew it was Alice they thought she was a giant monster thus and  alice was stupid and kicked Bill who was going down the chimmy to see what the arm was.

       

      Thus White rabbit yelled to burn the house, but they don’t get a chance to since Alice threatens to sick her cat on them

        maybe, I guess. hey, here’s an adaptation Disney should do that no one besides me considered: an adaptation based on the Wonderland mini series by Slave Labor Graphics. it’s new, it’s original, and it manages to tell the story from a different perspective through a different character. how’s that for original?

          here’s the plot: “Wonderland is a 6 issue mini series sequel to the original 1951 film that stars Mary Ann, The White Rabbit’s anally retentive maid who fusses and even fumes at the prospect of wearing a messy apron. Alice, less than fondly remembered by The Queen of Hearts as the “Alice Monster,” is long gone, but the unintentionally destructive effect of her visit continues to resonate. Unfortunately for The White Rabbit, the queen believes that he was in collusion with Alice.” now there’s a sequel and/or adaptation I’d rather pay money to see.

            “SLG Wonderland” will garner the most accurate results when googling it.

            Given the simple art style, I think Disney could do it cheaply in cell or even flash, but would look creepy in CGI. But knowing Disney, they’d say “this isn’t the art style people associate with us, so it must be changed.”

            that’s why I think it should be in 2D animation instead of flash or CGI. that can certainly make a spin-off film for a direct to video release that will at least show that someone is trying. I can’t stand most of Disney’s modern choices because it doesn’t create anything new and it really has nothing to do with art. to me, it stifles creativity, shamefully shuts down new & original ideas, and because they rather keep milking more sequels & remakes of these big franchises like prized heifers, they seem more like greedy corporate decisions than anything else. Disney has been seduced by the dark side.

            I think it would be necessary for Disney to not restrict themselves to just Marvel, Star Wars, 3D animated films, & live action remakes of their animated classics. nor do I think having the most money or the fact that they’re kids films are legitimate excuses for them making these decisions. to quote David Cronenberg: “An artist’s responsibility is to be irresponsible. As soon as you start to think about social or political responsibility, you’ve amputated the best limbs you’ve got as an artist. You are plugging into a very restrictive system that is going to push and mold you, and is going to make your art totally useless and ineffective.”

            I don’t think Disney should be restricting themselves to just doing films based on Marvel, Star Wars, 3D animated films, or live action remakes of their animated classics. I’m pretty sure we can co-exist with those films as long as we can also have 2D animated films, films such as Tron 3 & The Black Hole reboot, and experimental films especially if it’s made from one of Disney’s alternate studios (Touchstone Pictures, Buena Vista, and etc). if anything, I think this restricts the kind of films you can make and stifles creativity in favor of making more of these cash cows. to quote David Cronenberg:  An artist’s responsibility is to be irresponsible.

          oops sorry meant to reply to Adecristo, but a movie around Mary Ann? Well in the original book she is the “smarter alice” so that would be interesting, but there’s already a series about her? Hmmm I will have to look into this. Thanks for the info ^_^

            you’re welcome. I haven’t read it yet myself, but I do know about it based on the Disney Wiki page based on the character. and from what I’ve read, she’s actually far more interesting than Alice herself. the comic book is based around the events that happened after the 1951 Disney film. I’m interested in reading it at some point, but yeah I highly recommend it if you want something related to Alice In Wonderland that’s both new and different and without involving Alice herself for a change.

    Wait, that’s it? That was the ending? That, uh, really sneaked up on me. I mean, I know that’s more or less how the book ends, but it’s not like they followed it to the word anyway (I’m pretty sure nobody tried to burn Alice alive) they could’ve made a bit more of a lead up there.

    It is bad that I have seen an eight movie collection of Good Times films on a single DVD in stores.  From what I can tell, the movies can only get worse.  Although if Good Times movies had Old Man play the major role in their movies, they would be so much better to watch.

      It’s funny you mention those DVDs because (with some shame) I bought two of them. Some of the movies were just adequate (Snow White, Thumbelina, Black Beauty) while one was just insane (Sleeping Beauty) and then you get the ones that are really bad (Heidi and Jungle Book). And while they never going to win any awards, some of them I thought we’re better then the Disney versions. Their retelling of Pocahontas was actually a lot closer to the actual story (not a 100%, mind you). Also their version of Hercules was not only closer to the Greek myth (a more PG version obviously) but also had some good voice acting and character development.

    Wow, this movie is so bad/review is so good, I’m going to have to do thirteen dumb lines of comments to illustrate how I feel about this travesty.

    Yes movie, don’t have Alice discover the bunny, just have him jump RIGHT UP TO HER, AND CRAP! God, makes her seem insane instead of wondering if it’s all real or a dream.

    Why are all girls in Goodtimes movies so… Dumb and blank? Is it a disease? Or is it… Jetlag? (is flogged for murdering comedy)

    Anything goes? Lies! I tried to eat the Walrus, but then I was arrested! False advertising much, Wonderland?!

    Old Man?! You mean the Greatest character in Mortal Kombats own father is in this travesty?! Huzzah! Now if only he sacrificed this idiot to a Goomba… Then things would be perfect.

    This movie provides a nice lesson; White Blonde blue eyed women are going to break into your home, more likely then black men ever will.

    I don’t know Phelous… Maybe that White Rabbit tried to burn his house down to… Hide things. Certain things he didn’t want people finding. Stuff so bad, murdering someone in public is FAR more preferable then people finding it out.

    Phelous, I didn’t know you camoed in this movie. You look fine! Plus, better then your ‘to Boldly Flee cameo’.

    Well, at least this Mad Hatter didn’t break dance. Still pissed about that one.

    So the movie repeated itself? I didn’t notice, I was too busy wondering what my life was like before this movie.

    Too be fair to this abomination, the Queen has always been bipolar. I believe she’s boss because she’s the maddest of them all, being kind one second and horrible the next. Fits with the theme of wonderland actually.

    So she was murdered in her dream? Dying in a dream means you die… FOR REAL!

    So it was all real?! Wow… Still better then the live action movie and the books where Wonderland is actually a military government fighting off the Red Queen. Yes… Their is a pair of novels where Alice is a princess, comes to the real world, and goes back to help her people fight the war. Also the Bunny is her love interest. YOUNG ADULT NOVELS!

    “anything goes in wonderland” that almost sounds like something Toucan Sam would say.

    this movie seems more like a very lazy retelling of the 1951 Disney film and less like making a decent adaptation. hell, Code Geass tried harder than this. but if it means anything, at least it’s still better than the Tim Burton film (which I still can’t believe that Disney would rather allow a sequel to get made instead of Tron 3. because that makes total sense). whether or not this is more entertaining than the Care Bears special, I’ll let you folks decide. oh, and if anyone is planning to go see Tim Burton’s completely un-necessary sequel that no one wanted & no one asked for, just skip it & go see X-Men Apocalypse instead.

    also, if you folks want a story based on Alice In Wonderland that’s actually doing something different that’s legitimately good, then I recommend either American McGee’s Alice & it’s sequel Madness Returns, Alice 19th, The Looking Glass Wars, and/or Heart No Kuni No Alice aka Alice In The Country Of Hearts.

        I haven’t heard of those titles before, but I understand what you mean. I guess my 2 favorite versions of Alice In Wonderland besides the 1951 Disney film is both the American McGee versions and Alice In The Country Of Hearts. a 3rd choice for me would be the Wonderland 6 issue comic books which is also a really good version that I recommend since it has Mary Ann in it instead of Alice, and the story is both fresh & original from a different perspective. there’s been far too many different versions of Alice that one can only wonder if there’s more  adaptations of Alice In Wonderland than Dracula. but that requires some investigation and far too much free time to commit to such a thing that I would imagine it would just feel like the worst possible homework assignment.

            I think it’s so good that it deserves it’s own movie. the hard truth is that one can only do the same stories over and over and over again before they finally start to get stale. Alice has had enough time in the spotlight especially since now we have a sequel that no one wanted, no is going to like, they wont get the story accurate to the novels at all, and sadly, it will make over a billion dollars at the box office. I think it’s time to do a story based on Mary Ann as a movie. in fact, I think you can make a fair argument that Mary Ann might be a better & more fleshed out character than Alice.

            yeah, that’s what I figured as well. still, there’s no denying the fact that there has been way too many films based on Dracula & Alice. and most of them aren’t any different than the other in terms of plot & characters.

    Hey Phelous, I hope you don’t mind a long list of questions…

    1) Speaking of the Old Man, are you going to do another creepypasta with him?

    2) Was that a Spook Chaser in the background? I hope so.

    3) Where is the Ugly Prince/Son from?

    and finally…

    4) Do you accept donations for things to review?

      Yes, there were 2 Spook Chasers figures in the background actually, one is just loose on top of the Ghostbusters Firehouse.

      The guy Old Man snaps the neck of is from another version of Beauty and the Beast.

      Depends on what it is.

    First Old Man breaks into someone’s house, eats his food; later on he tells creepy pastas that make no sense. Next he engulfs little animals whole.  The only logical step after that is snapping the neck of some incredulous old broad.

    It’s about time you got to review another one of Good Times’ pieces of animated garbage.

    1:18- If the DVD doesn’t exist, then in what alternate Earth did you buy it from?

    3:25- It even sucks when the books with no pictures have really small print to read.

    The bottle with “Drink me” written on it looks like a large bottle of Tobasco sauce.

    Am I the only one who thinks that Old Man should get his own internet series?

    I can’t believe I’m writing this, but …I actually prefer the X-Rated Musical version of Alice in Wonderland over this version.

    14:41- If I want an animated chase scene with a repeating background, I’ll just watch a Hanna-Barbera cartoon, because those are more quickly paced than this crap.

    16:59- Why the hell is Garfield in Wonderland?

    20:03- Thank you, Captain Explainypants.

    Note to self: rewatch Disney’s original Alice in Wonderland.

    If nothing else, I am glad this movie actually had Alice’s neck grow very long which is why the bird said she was a serpent. If I could say anything, That’s the one part of the Disney version that never made any real sense to me. I have no Idea why Disney decided to exclude that detail from the book. Because it makes the sequence make even less sense.

    ….Not that that’s really in this movie’s favour. It’s just something I was always confused about in the Disney version.

    As for THIS movie, the language use really doesn’t work coming out of a perfectly modern sounding American accent. Somehow… it just doesn’t work. I can’t imagine why.

    I’m totally behind Old Man popping up in every video from now on btw.

        well, they did borrow some elements from Through The Looking Glass into  their 1951 classic. but yeah, it would of been nice to see a true animated sequel. but no, we’re now stuck with a questionable sequel to Tim Burton’s…….um………film. so, let’s see if I get this straight. Disney will say “Yes” to more Marvel films, more Star Wars films, more Pixar 3D animated films, and more unnecessary remakes/reboots/reimagining’s (or as I like to call, regurgitations) of their animated classics (which were already perfectly fine, and honestly, why not remake something that originally didn’t do very well to begin with like The Black Cauldron?), but they have the audacity to say “No” to The Black Hole reboot, 2D animated films, and Tron 3? that Disney, is why you fail.

          There’s this one Through the Looking glass movie. It has some comically bad acting from Mr T as the Jabberwocky that must be seen, but Alice’s Judy Jetson voice is pretty grating.

          Another Star Wars fail is their plan to make a new Star Wars movie every 365 days. Milk that teat dry until the fans become lactose intolerant.

            I’m fine with a new trilogy. but more movies, spin-off’s, stand alone films, and TV shows? that’s a bit too much even for die hard Star Wars fans to swallow. while we the audience have reached Marvel fatigue, Disney has reached what I’d like to call their Star Wars ejaculation. Disney’s decisions is no better and no different than any other greedy, sleazy, and corporate company milking a franchise for all it’s worth. however, like I said, I’m fine with just a solid trilogy. and I would be very happy & highly supportive of Disney reaching an agreement with 20th Century Fox to release the original unaltered trilogy on Blu-Ray (which btw, is becoming more and more of a reality. and for both the fans and the preservation of film culture, this is a very good thing that must happen). however, I’m not in favor of having more and more Star Wars movies every single year, nor do I agree with their decision to remove & change the official canon of the Expanded Universe. that wont stop me from giving the new trilogy a chance, but it doesn’t make me agree with their decisions nor do I like most of the new Star Wars content that has been released so far.

          maybe, I wouldn’t know since I never watched Digimon as a kid. and to be honest, as funny as 4Kids’ dubs often were, it’s no where near as bad as Nelvana’s dub of Cardcaptor Sakura shamefully named Cardcaptors. everything about it is wrong. the acting of most of the character (not all since I actually think Matt Hill’s version of Kero is pretty funny), the music doesn’t match, the advertisement is off the mark, half of the episodes are missing, the characters are renamed, it’s heavily edited down removing a lot of what made the show amazing to being with, and it even dared to advertise Li Syaoran as the main hero in a 2000 online ad. wow! that’s pretty bad. if there’s any classic anime series that’s long over due for a superior & definitive American dub of the entire franchise (including the 2 films, the mini movie, & the 3 ova’s), it’s Cardcaptor Sakura.

          maybe, I actually never grew up with Digimon. however, as much as everyone makes fun of 4Kids and their American dubs, there’s one that I will argue is much, much worse. Nelvana’s American dub of Cardcaptor Sakura shamefully named Cardcaptors. everything about it is wrong. the actors are terrible (with the exception of Matt Hill as Kero), the music doesn’t fit, a huge chunk of the episodes are missing, it’s heavily edited down (including the characters names, a lot of the love aspects of the original version, scenes cut for numerous reasons, dialogue is rewritten, and sometimes entire episodes are either spliced together or just removed entirely),  they were trying to compete with Pokémon which has nothing in common with each other (except for nostalgia purposes since they were both aired on Kids! WB), and worst of all, they tried to advertise Li Syaoran as the main character in a 2000 online ad. yeah, it’s that bad. and personally, Cardcaptor Sakura is way overdue for a proper American dub. it’s been far too long and the series is still popular. if there’s any classic anime franchise that needs a superior & definitive American dub (including the 70 episode tv series, the 2 films, the mini movie, and the 3 ova’s), it’s Cardcaptor Sakura.

    Well, it’s hopefully just a matter of time before we get an Old Man/Fat Grandma crossover.  You could say it is EXPECTED! (I’m a master comedian*, guys, seriously!)

    Now, to their credit, and this is probably really a very moot point, but…this is probably the ONLY animated iteration of the Alice in Wonderland story I know of that -ACTUALLY- included the fact that Alice’s neck elongated when she grew from the mushroom, which was a thing in the actual book. Other than that, yeah this is pretty damn forgettable. 😛

    God bless the Old Man; may he live forever no matter how Old he gets.

    Mediocre animated adaptations of Alice in Wonderland almost constitute their own genre. I can’t explain why so many cheap studios are drawn to it–I’d understand if they were drawn to the idea of visualizing the setting of Wonderland, but with adaptations like that their interpretations are always stock and very dull.

    A mediocre version that I remember, for whatever reason, is from Burbank Films. The sound mixing is absolute bullshit and their idea of Wonderland is mostly just animals in t-shirts. The soundtrack is synthesizer-y and Australian, though, which I for some reason like…

      I agree that most animated versions of Alice In Wonderland can be rather mediocre. however, the flipside to that is that with anime, manga, & video games, there have been some really good adaptations that were able to do something new & original instead of retelling the same story over and over again. such as Pandora Hearts, Miyuki-Chan In Wonderland, Alice In The Country Of Hearts, Are You Alice?, Alice 19th, Touhou Project, American McGee’s Alice & it’s sequels, Alice In The Distortion World, . even certain episodes or ova’s of certain anime franchises usually has better versions of Alice In Wonderland ranging from Black Butler, XXXHolic, Cardcaptor Sakura, & Code Geass Nunnally In Wonderland. even before ABC’s Once Upon A Time In Wonderland, we had a version on SyFy (just stick with the old name Sci-Fi Channel, it’s sound less stupid that way), and there was even a show I remember watching a few times as a kid called Adventures In Wonderland that ran from 1991-1995.  and that was when the Disney Channel used to be legitimately good. a time when you got to see Little Richard perform itsy bitsy spider & Samuel E. Wright performing a live concert called Sebastian’s Caribbean Jamboree.

      Yeah, I’ve got the Burbank Films version too. Maybe THAT was the one with the different cover art that I accidently bought twice…..

        I came across it on YouTube; I think it was somebody’s XBox footage. Is the shitty audio on the actual DVD as well? Alice was pretty much inaudible, to my memory.

    In 2007 I went through this phase where I had to own every version of Alice, Nutcracker, & Oz ever made…as long as it wasn’t “filthy CGI”…so I not only have this, but I’m pretty sure this is the one I got tricked into buying it twice due to different releases having very different cover art. & it was a pretty unremarkable version too.

    Oh noes! Alice has Glaucoma! & also looks vaguely like Princess Peach.

    You wanna see reused animation? A little cartoon called SCRUFF……Also hentai….Anyway, these songs are pretty terrible.

    Remember kids, if you see perfume bottles that say “drink me,” you should totally do just that with no questions.

    The Caterpillar cpould also pass for LordKaT or Ashens.

    Playing card bukkake, because anything goes in Wonderland.

    What can I say about this movie? I like the pastel color pallet & Memphis Style hall of doors.

    While watching your Beauty and the Beast review, I recognized Good Times Entertainment’s intro from the strange Christmas Carol adaptation I watched fro the majority of my childhood. Too weird!!

    By the by, I really like how you’ve started reviewing weird, cheap animated movies since I’ve watched plenty of them as a kid and have always thought they were too special to not be seen. Aside from A Christmas Carol, there was a Mulan film in which Mulan is saved by a giant eagle, a film about Merlin about how, in his youth, two dragons fight over his village, a film about Marco Polo battling a sorcerer for the freedom of Xanadu,  a Pocahontas film where she fights The Spider Woman and meets Aztecs in separate movies, an adaptation of the brutal tale of Prince Sum and Princess Moon, a Hunchback of Notre Dame film with magical gypsies and a Snow Queen adaptation where the lead uses bribery to free herself though that one is impossible to find.

    If you reviewed any of these, it would be awesome!!!

    Good Times Entertainment also made this strange adaptation of A Christmas Carol that I watched as a kid: i recognized the intro from your first Beauty and the Beast review. Too weird!!

    I’m glad you’ve started reviewing strange animated movies since I’ve watched them for a majority of my childhood and always thought they were to glorious to not be seen.

    Aside from A Christmas Carol film, I’ve seen a Snow Queen adaptation involving really sleepy narration, a film about Merlin talking about how, in his youth, dragons fought over his village, a Pocahontas adaptation involving Pocahontas battling The Spider Woman and meeting Aztecs in separate films, a film about the brutal fable of Prince Sun and Princess Moon, a film about a Chinese boy who discovers a magic paintbrush, a Mulan adaptation involving Mulan getting rescued by a giant eagle, a Hunchback of Notre Dame film involving magical gypsies and a film about Marco Polo Junior fighting a sorcerer for the freedom of Xanadu (Australia’s first animated film by the way).

    A review of any of these would be incredible!

    I knew they used these just to cash in on Disney but… wow that was especially lazy. Even by the extremely low bar I’ve set for them. On the other hand, your review had me laughing so hard that it brought tears to my eyes so… balance? Don’t listen to me, though. I just got out of the shower and I’m all wet, I’m completely useless now.

    Given the March Hare’s voice, I half-expected him to screech ‘March Hare, TERRORIIIIIIZE!’ in a screechy voice.

     

    Yup… that’s right. Same voice as Beast Wars’ Terrorsaur!

    There’s just so much review material to be made from the Goodtimes library~

    We got their version of “The Little Mermaid”; where “Prince Stephan” is a shameless clone of Prince Eric, Old Man is reincarnated as the mermaid’s whiny dolphin friend, the mermaid is yet another blonde-haired blue-eyed simpleton (Goodtimes sure loves their dumb blondes), and the villainess disappears completely from the movie halfway through: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=35BGhE8G7ZQ

    or the Aladdin ripoff where the Genie is painfully unfunny and the Jafar-expy kills HIMSELF by tripping on his cape and stabbing himself with his sword:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zIY-oTEdPmA

    Hey have you ever heard of  the weird German version of Alice in wonderland? This is the trailer: https://youtu.be/KVOmGJzj5LM

    I don’t know what I would categorize this movie as, it’s not for kids unless you want to scar them, it’s not a horror flick because it’s not really trying to scare you, and pretty much nothing in between as far as I could tell. (if anyone wants to enlighten me feel free)

    I was up late one night and thought for some stupid fucking reason I’d watch this movie with a friend and the whole thing…
    It’s fucking traumatizing that’s what it is. Weird and traumatizing. But not in the “movie so bad it’s good” kind of way.. Or at least not from my perspective. It’s not doofy or cheesy or cliche, it’s just… It’s weird.  Made me think of something you or maybe the cinema snob would review (if he was in the mood to emotionally scar himself)

    Cheap padded-out animation with pointless music that reuses animation loops over & over again?  SCRUFF anyone?
