I am going to be comparing and contrasting the movie Alice Through the Looking Glass and the series Lemony Snickets: A Series of Unfortunate Events. For example, a difference that these two television shows have is that Alice goes to Wonderland once more. The Baudelaires have to face a madman known as Count Olaf, who is an actor, but, nobody recognizes him when he dresses up in disguises to fool people so that he can become in possession of the Baudelaire fortune even though the children recognize him the three times he tries to disguise himself. A similarity that they both have is that they both go on an adventure to find something out that they are determined to know. First, I am going to be comparing and contrasting the conflict in the
Tick Tock Tick Tock… a white rabbit with blue waistcoat with a pocket watch is running as fast as it can. Alice very curious about it so she followed it… I have chosen an interesting story is Alice’s Adventure in the Wonderland which is written by Lewis Carol. Basically the main idea of the story got a lot. One of examples is growth in adulthood, size changes, death, learning the rules and more. Furthermore, main character in the story is Alice, White Rabbit, Caterpillar, The Hatter, Cheshire cat, Queen of Hearts and more characters.
Alice meets new characters throughout this world such as a talking Dodo bird, a smoking Caterpillar, a grinning Cheshire Cat, and an outraged Queen. Alice is treated very rudely by most characters and is informed by the Cheshire Cat that everyone in Wonderland is mad, including herself. Alice moves through this world trying to make sense of everything that happens when none of it does. Unfortunately for Alice, she gets little to no help understanding what's happening. She is just left to figure it out on her own until she reaches the end and realizes it was all a dream.
The song Polly sings during the reunion in the house’s front drawing-room is called “I’m a Naughty Girl” and it tells the story of an “imp on mischief bent.” The song describes moments where the imp plays ticks of her mistress and brags about her ability to confuse and agitate others.

Disney inspired fairy tales have a certain universality, everything is romanticized and there usually is an evil antagonist making situations worse. In Disney’s Enchanted, Giselle the protagonist is the typical gender stereotyped fairy tale princess. She is a cartoon character in a fictitious place called Andalasia, who later turns into a real woman in New York City after getting pushed into a magic well. This happened because Giselle’s prince’s evil step mother Narissa thought Giselle is marrying the prince to get Narissa dethroned. Similarly, in Sleeping Beauty, Aurora a passive, beautiful princess is cursed to fall into a deep slumber when she is pricked by the spinning needle.
In the Victorian age, children’s condition was a problem. treated as miniature adults, they were often required to work, were severely chastised, or were ignored. Exactly in that period Charles Dodgson under the pseudonym Lewis Carrol wrote “Alice’s Adventure in Wonderland”, a novel that tells of a girl named Alice falling through a rabbit hole into a fantasy world. It is first of all a children’s book as it has a child protagonist; however it appeals to adult readers with its advanced logical reasoning, witty puns and trenchant satire of Victorian society. So we can consider it as a drastic reaction against the impassive didacticism of British upbringing.

Fairy Tales from the 19th century were almost all about fairy’s until they were changed. “ Rapunzel, the fairy became a sorceress, and Briar Rose, better known as Sleeping Beauty, the fairies are changed to wise women.”(Mental Floss) Today there are several different types characters. There’s a range of princesses and princes, goblins,dwarfs, and even animals in stories now. The Grimm brothers made sure that they made their stories were censored and for children, whereas the original volumes were not. The altered stories made sure they had their own originality, which would start with changing who the actual character were.
Oh my, I see. Well then, no, how could I think of you as a mere child when you express yourself so clearly and eloquently? I 'm a bit reminded of Alice from Lewis Carroll 's classic books, reading your little bio there. Ha, well the closest I get to Alice is twofold, 1. I do have an Alice band in my hair occasionally, 2. my adversary in school debates is affectionately known as “Atheistic Alice”, she is actually very nice and very funny at times, we are only advisories when we are debating against each other, we often do each other’s hair, even borrow each other’s clothes, once she finds out I’m on here she will turn up to make sure I have the hardest time possible lol.
Throughout the novel, Carroll helps us to better understand the character of Alice. This young, Victorian girl who falls into a rabbit hole and doesn 't understand why she 's there, and how she 's supposed to get out of this topsy-turvy world. Carroll reveals the character of Alice by telling of her journey through the magical place called Wonderland. The first place she arrived at after falling down the rabbit hole, was a dark place, and the first thing she saw was a door (that later leads to the garden). She asks the rabbit what to do, but he just runs away, which causes her to figure things out on her on.

In 1942, she knew she wanted to write a comedy that Americans that would make Americans laugh again after World War II.
