Bob Thomas: What did Walt feel was lacking in Alice in Wonderland?

Winston Hibler: He thought it didn’t have any emotional appeal. I mean anybody to pull for. As he said himself, there was no heart in Alice. You really didn’t pull for her. She was a mischievous, adventuresome gal and you never really felt sorry for her. That was part of Walt’s philosophy: you had to pull for somebody. There had to be a tear as well as a laugh in a picture. That was always his philosophy.
