My, my, my. The glories of the Internet are now fully manifest. Today I came face to face with a most cherished childhood memory. I am sure there are a lot of you out there who remember this: the 1985 TV miniseries of Alice In Wonderland featuring insanely star-studded roster of entertainers. I remember watching this snuggled on my mom and dad’s bed when it first aired (YES I’M DATING MYSELF), hiding from the Jabberwocky, laughing at TweedleDee and TweedleDum while being thoroughly ignorant of exactly who these people were: Martha Raye, Carol Channing, Ann Jillian, Ringo Starr, Red Buttons, Scott Baio, Donald O’Connor, Telly Savalas (AS A HIGHLY DISTURBING CHESHIRE CAT) Lloyd Bridges, Karl Malden, Steve Allen, Jonathan Winters, Merv Griffin and, of course, the inimitable Sammy Davis Jr.
I admit it’s not exactly as, shall we say, magical as it was as a child … but, oh, the memories … from the corner of my mind … misty water colored, awww, you know what I mean. 😉
