Review By JESSICA ALMY
This old movie, available on DVD, uses the character of Alice in Wonderland to present a variety of classic children’s stories including one featuring the French orphan Madeline.
Veg parents should know that while this film depicts a child freeing captive animals from cages, the liberated animals ultimately decide to return to the supposed safety of the circus. (Kiddo seems to think the animals were people in costumes; I must admit that I didn’t watch closely enough to be sure.) Similarly, while the film makes a reference to vegetarianism, it also shows people eating chicken and cheese.
Rated G. Ages 4-8.
