Weary of listening to her sister's reading, incurably curious young Alice chases a white rabbit with coattails down a rabbit-hole and starts on an adventure that takes her through very strange places peopled with very strange creatures.
Alice appears within the first two minutes of Alice in Wonderland, released on July 28th 1951. She is first seen sitting in a tree with her kitten, Dinah, making a daisy chain.
The name Alice was taken from a young acquaintance of Lewis Carol, the author of the book Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, on which the Disney movie is based. It means "noble" or "of the nobility".
