One of my favourite Disney classics has always been Alice In Wonderland. This story tells of a girl (Alice) who falls down a rabbit hold and into a world of peculiar creatures and unimaginable events. Alice’s ideas of reality are challenged at the least and she often finds herself in utter confusion. Her perception of this world is faced with adversity as the characters she encounters lead her to believe that down is up and up is down. She finds herself in uncomfortable situations with a bottle labeled “drink me” which causes her to drastically shrink and a cake titled “eat me” which causes her to grow to the size of a giant.
Countless other adventures find her in the presence of talking flowers, the mad hatter and the Cheshire cat. However the scene that provokes the most thought on my part is when Alice encounters a blue caterpillar sitting on a mushroom, smoking a hookah. He prods her with the question “Whooooo Arrrrreeeeeeee yyoouuuu? Alice admits her identity crisis and is even more troubled after her conversation with this caterpillar.
