Along with Dumbo, Alice in Wonderland was ported over to the Walt Disney Classics in late 1985, but was actually released on VHS on May 27, 1986. The price of the video dropped to $29.95 in October 1986, but changed back to $84.95 in early 1987. The Alice in Wonderland VHS saw some changes in 1988 and 1991, when it got a new tape master and was priced at $24.99, and these copies were later replaced by their Walt Disney Masterpiece Collection counterparts in 1994.

On July 13, 1999, Alice in Wonderland's 1999 re-issue on video was one of the last official releases within the Walt Disney Masterpiece Collection, along with Robin Hood. It was discontinued on January 31, 2000, and replaced by its Gold Classic Collection counterpart.


Synopsis

1986-1991 VHS

A dazzling blend of fantasy, animation and music create a kaleidoscope of adventures in this color -- splashed Disney classic, based on Lewis Carroll’s immortal story. On a golden afternoon, young Alice follows a White Rabbit, who disappears down a nearby rabbit hole. Quickly following him she tumbles into the burrow -- and enters the merry, topsy-turvy world of Wonderland! Memorable songs and whimsical escapades highlight Alice’s journey, which culminates in a madcap encounter with the Queen of Hearts -- and her army of playing cards!

1994-1999 VHS

In the hands of Disney's extraordinary animators, Lewis Carroll's immortal literary classic comes to life like never before!  The surprises begin when a daydreaming Alice encounters a White Rabbit who is frantically running late. She chases him and falls into the magical, madcap world of Wonderland with its kaleidoscope of off-the-wall characters - including Tweedledee and Tweedledum, the Cheshire Cat and the manic Mad Hatter, who invite her to a memorable tea party! The crowning confrontation begins when Alice meets the notorious Queen of Hearts and her enchanted deck of playing cards. Tricked into a curious game of croquet, Alice and her patience end up on trial. Is there no escape from this whimsical escapade? Filled with fantasy and topsy-turvy fun, Alice in Wonderland is teeming with spectacular songs and astounding animation in the highest Disney tradition!
