Live Action Reference Photo A-SPEC-155 - The Mad Tea Party

Somehow I missed this one when I did the live action reference series a while back, this one is an OLD one, just look how young Kathy is!
Featuring Kathryn Beaumont, Jerry Colonna, and Ed Wynn.  Probably not a true live action reference, more likely a press photo during a recording session, but great to see all three together.

The Back Side of Alice - An Animation Sequence

I've been wanting to post this for a while now, but have only recently figured out how to create a large animation using Photoshop.  How many times have you seen pictures of the back side of water from Disneyland?  Well now you get to see 26 pictures of the back side of Alice!
This is a sequence of 26 drawings of Alice as she is chasing after the White Rabbit after the Mad Hatter and the March Hare have unceremoniously tossed him out of the Mad Tea Party; shortly after this sequence Alice exclaims "This is the stupidest tea party I've been to in all my life."  It is not a complete sequence, there are a few holes, but it animates very well don't you think?

Full sequence of drawings below.  Enjoy!

White Rabbit Get Well Card by Valentine's Greeting Cards - England

Fantastic get well card from the English company Valentine's Greeting Cards featuring the White Rabbit.  "Hoping you'll soon be out of the wood" is the sentiment here, although we here in the USA would say "out of the woods."  I like the Tulgey Wood sign that shows the way out.
The inside is where the gold is on this card, showing the White Rabbit in the picture of health, smoking his cigar(?!) and having a spot of tea.  I'm pretty sure this card would not be AMA approved.
As with all English products, this is by permission of Walt Disney Mickey Mouse LTD.
