Hudson/Disney "Alice In Wonderland" TV Ad (1950's)

Updated: see comments in red below!

I came across this black and white cel on a Master Background and thought it was quite a find, especially since it demonstrated Disney's attempt to expand its revenue base into another medium (or segment). The expressions and action help make the image special.

Update 5/14/2008: There was no information on the item when I bought it, but Matt Crandall let me know that this was from a Hudson Car commercial (he even has a video tape of the spot) and that the voices were by June Foray.

----- DATABASE NOTES -----

  1. Actually this is from a car commercial (Hudson I believe) with voices by June Foray.

  2. Matt ... Fantastic. When I was trying to find a match for this I didn't run across Hudson. Do you have an additional information that I could cite as a reference? Thanks, again. And great to see your new blog!
