The Mad Tea Party
My favorite scene form Disney's Alice in Wonderland (The 1951 orginal). I've yet to see the new version by Tim Burton. I might see it later this month.
Anyway, I love this scene because it's driven by sheer comedy. I can definitely see how Ward Kimball (the guy who animated this scene) may have been inspired by the great Tex Avery for some of these jokes. After all, Kimball was the funny guy of Disney animation! Ed Wynn and Jerry Colona were just priceless as the Hatter and Hare.
Well, enjoy watching. I always do. And a merry unbirthday to all!
