Lou Bunin's stop-motion animation masterpiece was the first attempt at making a full length stop-motion animated film. decades before Tim Burton and Disney took all the credit for the idea. Lou Bunin even took it a step further and combined a live action actress( the wonderful Carol Marsh) into the animation. the whole thing is very hip and cutting edge. too bad the film has been allowed to become faded and washed-out because of abusive neglect by today's filmgoers.
this film has been the victim of unfair criticism by persons who refuse to look at the film's innovations and contributions, but instead chuckle about it's neglect and poor picture and audio quality. something a little kindness and restoration would do wonders for.

Video Quality spotty, may be due to Transfer from poor quality copy footage.
Anyway if you already have Lou Bunin's Alice in wonderland then you have this one as that is what this one is too.
I should also note that the green DVD titled Lou Bunin's Alice in Wonderland is also the one I recommend as the transfer on that appears to be from the original film whereas this one appears to be transferred from a VHS tape. So, the quality is better on the green one.
The image quality is mediocre at best and I kept thinking while I watched it how much more enjoyable it would have been otherwise.
I liked the use of puppets portraying the strange creatures she encounters which I feel brings the film closer in spirit to the book where Alice interacts with talking animals, something that would have delighted young girls who are at least one of the target audiences of the book.
So 4 stars of Ms. Marsh, 3 at best for the quality and 5 for the puppets.
