Alice eventually gets stranded in the Tulgey Wood and along the way meets the Chesire Cat who guides her to the Queen of Hearts Kingdom. The White Rabbit presents her, (just in time), when the Queen notices her white Roses have been painted red by three of her cards, and Alice too. After a game of Croquet where the Chesire Cat trips up the Queen, Alice is blamed and sent to the Kingdom's court. A tribunal ensues where most of the earlier characters turn up including the Mad Hatter and March Hare. Alice manages to escape the kingdom and runs into the doorknob who reveals she has been sleeping the whole time. She finally manages to wake up dazed and confused with her sister, but returns home happy with her family.

Card Painter: Oh no, Your Majesty, please! It's all his fault.
Card Painter: Not me, your grace! The ace, the ace.
Queen of Hearts: You?
Card Painter: No, two.
Queen of Hearts: The deuce, you say?
Card Painter: Not me! The three.
Queen of Hearts: That's enough! Off with their heads.
