Sesame Street

Fran Brill
A Lavender Anything Muppet portrayed Alice in an interview with Kermit the Frog as part of a Sesame Street News Flash segment. Although she is almost too tiny to be seen at first, Alice grows taller upon drinking from a water bottle labeled "Drink Me," eventually becoming as tall as Kermit and then outgrowing him until she is so huge that all that is seen of her is her red and white striped stocking.

The White Rabbit

Alice follows The White Rabbit down the rabbit hole into Wonderland. Alice encounters him again when he mistakes her for his housemaid Mary Ann and she becomes trapped in his house after growing too large. The Rabbit shows up again in the last few chapters, as a herald-like servant of the King and Queen of Hearts.

Steve Whitmire
The White Rabbit appeared in episode 506 as one of the only original puppets in the Muppets' adaptation. Somewhat more aggressive than most versions of the character, the White Rabbit at one point bodily threatens Kermit. He is featured prominently throughout the episode, participating in the "When You're Smiling" medley and later playing the usher in the courtroom scene.

The puppet later appeared in the wedding finale in The Muppets Take Manhattan and also played the Easter Bunny in an episode of Donna's Day. The puppet was later recycled, with ears bent downward and sporting a new outfit and glasses, in the "Music of the Street" number in Sesame Street Episode 4081.

Richard Coombs

Kiran Shah
As in the original Carroll novel, the White Rabbit is perpetually concerned about running late, mistakes Alice for his maid, and functions as clerk of the court for the Knave's trial. In this adaptation, the White Rabbit is a full-bodied character with rather twitchy body movements, suggestive of a clockwork figure. According to a pop-up book which leads to the rabbit's house, his full name is Frederick Rabbit.

Big Mick

Tony Haygarth
Manifesting in Alice Hargreaves' hotel room along with the Dormouse and March Hare, the Mad Hatter is more menacing and grotesque than his print counterpart in Lewis Carroll's Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. Trembling in a manner reminiscent of mercury poisoning (also known as "hatter's shakes"), he beats his companions and browbeats the elderly Alice, shouting "You should be dead!" He soon returns to musing about his slow watch, repaired with the best butter.

Martin Short

The March Hare

In Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, the March Hare hosts Alice, the Mad Hatter, and the Dormouse at a Mad Tea-Party. He also later appears during the Mad Hatter's testimony at Alice's trial. In Through the Looking-Glass, he makes a cameo appearance as "Haigha," one of the White King's messengers at the fight between the Lion and the Unicorn.

Richard Hunt
A Muppet version of the March Hare appears in episode 506. The puppet was designed to resemble the original illustrations by John Tenniel. The March Hare appears several times throughout the episode, in the background or chorus, and is featured more prominently in the Mad Tea-Party scene at the end of the show.

Michael Sundin

Ken Campbell
A more feral version of the March Hare character appears in Alice Hargreaves' nightmares. With enraged eyes and blood-stained teeth, the Hare sits with the Mad Hatter and the Dormouse. The group reenact their literary scenes while simultaneously tormenting the elderly Alice. Despite his grotesque appearance, the March Hare is himself cowed by the Hatter, who turns upon him violently.
