HIDDEN MICKEY: In the scene where Alice grows and gets stuck in the White Rabbit's house, if you look closely at the DoDo bird's flame as he lights his pipe, there is a hidden Mickey flickering in the flame.

During a break in the recording sessions, Ed Wynn ad libbed the speech where the Mad Hatter tries to "fix" the White Rabbit's watch. ("Muthtard? Leth not be thilly!") Walt Disney, who was listening in a nearby sound booth, saw that the recording tape was still recording Wynn's speech. He told the sound technicians, "Hey, that stuff's pretty funny. Why don't you use that speech in the movie?" The sound men objected. "We can't use that speech. There are too many background noises on the tape." Disney smiled, and told them, "That's *your* problem," then walked out of the room. Eventually, with much labor, the sound technicians managed to erase all the background noises from the recording tape so that Ed Wynn's ad libs could be used in the film.

In the oyster story, the appearance of the eyes of the walrus is inconsistent between shots. Some shots have just little black dot eyes, some shots have him with full pupils and colored eyes.

In the song "Painting the Roses Red", after Alice sings "Oh, pardon me, but Mister Three, why must you paint them red?" the three cards say "Huh? Ohhhhhhh!". When they say that, The three of clubs card has a three in the bottom right corner with no clubs symbol on top of the three. the three of clubs also has nothing in the top left corner. The ace and two of clubs have nothing in both of their corners. A few slides later, the symbols in the corners come back. (Possibly a chameleon-ability similar to the Caterpillar.)

How does the movie end?
While the Queen screams, 'Off with her head!', Alice remembers the mushrooms in her apron pockets. She takes a bite of one of them and grows until her head touches the ceiling. No longer intimidated by the Queen, Alice begins to scold her, calling her 'a fat, pompous, bad-tempered, old tyrant.' However, with each word, Alice grows a little shorter until she's back to her tiny height. 'Off with her head!' again screams the Queen causing Alice to run for her life while the Queen and her cards give chase. Alice happens upon the door that separates Wonderland from the real world and tries to turn the knob, but the Doorknob informs her that she is already on the other side. Looking through the keyhole, Alice sees herself asleep under a tree, Dinah in her lap. 'Alice, wake up!' she calls to herself. In the final scene, the view returns to the real world where Alice's sister is telling her to wake up. Alice babbles about the crocodile and the caterpillar, but her sister, not knowing what Alice is talking about, leads Alice home for tea.
