White Rabbit Big Figure

WHITE RABBIT BIG FIG

Designed by Kevin Kidney

Resin figure with real working clock.

Released in 2001. © Disney

 

This was the very first big figure I ever designed, created for the 50th anniversary of Walt Disney's "Alice in Wonderland." Back in the early days, we'd put the character's name on the base, until we discovered that most of the collectors didn't care for it. We omitted the name from later figurines, and if the figurine was balanced and could stand on its own, the removable base became optional (I prefer them without bases.)

 

In 2005, we re-issued this character with an aqua-colored base which I think was a great improvement in looking more like Mary Blair's color styling in the film. The first brown base didn't feel like the movie at all. You live and learn.

Here is the marketing text for this figure:

 

"Under pressure? A bit behind? Don't lose your head--you'll never be

late for any important date again thanks to Wonderland's hapless herald,

the White Rabbit. Whether a tea party, a court date or a croquet game

is next on your agenda, Mr. Rabbit's working watch (no longer two days

slow) can help guide you through the tulgy tangle of your daily

timetable. The occasional battery (no mustard, please) will give you

and the rabbit the confident chance to say both hello and goodbye!

 

"This resin cast figure of the White Rabbit from Walt Disney's 1951 animated feature

Alice in Wonderland is dressed for his royal duties at the Queen of

Hearts' palace. He still seems to be almost as tightly wound as his

timepiece...no doubt due to force of rabbit habit."
