This episode puts a strange spin on Alice's Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll:
- The premise of following a white rabbit to another world
- The Princess of Hearts and her costume
- The Cheshire Dragon
- The strange sentient plant life

 
The insect-like trains are controlled by trackballs, a nod to the videogame Centipede

Jeremy's Review

Probably the strangest episode in the series but also one of the most entertaining. The unique and often bizarre retro animation style, character designs and even soundtrack of this episode dramatically stand apart from any other episode of the show. It's a strange, funny and overall whimsical experience. A+
