The Cheshire Cat As We Know Today
A cult classic in the film world, Disney's past and present adaptations of Alice In Wonderland are by far the most renowned film depictions of Lewis Carroll's complex and very peculiar characters.
Walt Disney took interest in Carroll's cherished Alice books long before Disney's first successful animated feature in 1951. In fact, he began working on Alice animations as far back as the 1930s. Originally planned as a live-action animated film, Walt decided on an all-animated film that by the 1970s had become a huge success and delighted viewers of all ages. In the 1980s, it was even among the first Disney films to be available on VHS. Disney's more recent films, directed by Tim Burton revived the classic fable, stirring an excitement among Alice fans. The creative minds at Disney have a special touch when it comes to the whimsical world of Wonderland. Their depictions of the imagery and characters, including the Cheshire Cat, are known for their authenticity. Always puzzling and quite comical, Disney has made this classic character the star that he is today. When you think of the Cheshire, the classic Disney animations instantly come to mind. From his colorful stripes to that ear-to-ear grin, Cheshire Cat has long been a fan favorite. We are proud and overjoyed to present this charming character as our latest Steiff Exclusive!
