Awesome Video Saturday CXXV

Do you remember the 1985 Alice in Wonderland miniseries? It was one of those star-studded specials that used to come on periodically. I remember being riveted by it when I was younger, and I thought the Jabberwocky was terrifying.

In honor of the release of Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland, Entertainment Weekly has posted some scenes from the 1985 movie.

Looks pretty lame by today's standards. As they mention in the post:
Watching this as an adult is so weird. So many questions. Was every scene of this thing shot in the same big room? Why was the caterpillar dressed as a Revolutionary War general while Alice got to crossover into a local stage production of Peter and the Wolf?
YouTube has many more clips. Good for a funny nostalgia trip.

I used to LOVE watching this version!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The jabberwocky from this version was the only reaccuring nightmare I ever had as a child. I was Alice running away through the spider webs. (you know how I feel about spiders)
