Since the last entry, I said we'd be getting episodes shortly after Thanksgiving from my contact. Unfortunately, that hasn't happened yet. I realized that since he was Canadian, his Thanksgiving was in October so I sent him a message. He basically responded that he's still trying to learn how to use the transfer machine and that school is keeping him busy. While he still seems like he'll do it eventually, I'm disappointed he hadn't contacted me back in October to update me and I have absolutely no idea when we may see them. I will offer to buy or transfer them myself again.
Regardless, it seems like we will still be getting new episodes. If you're a member of Chuckleheads on Facebook, you may have seen someone selling episodes from their own recordings. Jennifer's bought all the discs and hopefully the seller will deliver. If she does, that's 9 (possibly 11) new episodes and that would leave only 25 (possibly 23) episodes missing.
My name's Jessica and I too am a fan of Adventures in Wonderland. I found this community a few months ago but my friend Jenna (missgifted) gave me the nudge I needed to finally show my face. c: I guess I could start by filling out the intro survey.
1. How old are you? (for kicks, because we know you're probably older than the target audience of this show)
24 years young.
2. What's your calling in life? (it sounds epic, doesn't it)
I'm currently studying Psychology and Sociology and I plan on going into Forensic Psychology as a career. I have a long way to go, but for now that's what I'm aiming for.
3. Why do you like AIW?
Goodness, what isn't to like? The songs are great, the cast is phenomenal and it's one of the very few kids show that I watch today not because I have to, but because I want to. It's genuinely funny and enjoyable without cracking crude jokes. And even though it was shot and set in the 90's, I think it's aged pretty well. My nieces fell in love with it when I showed it to them, so it's pretty great to be able to share something I cherished as a kid to a new generation.
4. Who're your favorite characters? (1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, even)
Ah, I love every single one of them! But to play the game, I'd have to say Hatter is my first. His costume was always my favorite and they gave him some pretty memorable lines. Naturally, Hare is my second favorite because you can't have one without the other. Then I'd say the Red Queen and Rabbit come in tied for third place.
5. How were you introduced to the series?
Through the Disney channel when I was about 4 or 5. My sister and I would watch it all the time and it's actually what got me started on my Alice In Wonderland obsession. So this was like a gateway into something much bigger, I'll always love it.
6. What other books/movies/shows/ etc are you a fan of?
Well obviously Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass are my top two books, haha! But other than that I enjoy 1984, The Neverending Story, The Bell Jar, A Song of Ice and Fire novels, The Road and a lot more.
My favorite film is Melancholia, and I enjoy films by Sofia Cappola, Wes Anderson, John Waters and Martin Scorsese. I'm a film junkie so this list could go on forever.
As far as TV shows (oh god I'm ashamed to admit that I'm a TV junkie as well!) I like Game of Thrones, Breaking Bad, The Walking Dead, Boardwalk Empire, American Horror Story, The Office, Veep, Seinfeld, ect.
7. Do you like tea? :3
I do! I enjoy jasmine tea the most but I'll drink anything. c:
Love that there is a community just for AiW fans! John Hoffman was the first celebrity that I wrote a fan letter to (I was 11 or 12, I think), although I doubt it ever reached him...:-(
Been thinking about this show for years, but it really hit home when Patrick Richwood posted an interview on FB regarding his time as the White Rabbit. Since then, I've watched episode after episode on youtube (thanks to melpierson for working diligently on uploading them) and dreaming of the Hatter and Hare (much like I did back when). I even have started a fanfiction story re: the show's characters (tried posting it on fanfiction.net, but they've gotten rather too complicated since I last uploaded there five years ago).
Anyway, just wanted to thank everyone involved in this community and helping to make sure AiW stays in our hearts and minds for years to come. Can't wait to see what comes up next on here!
