The Curious Oysters are a family of young oysters and their mother who appeared in the 1951 Disney animated feature film, Alice in Wonderland.

Appearances

Alice in Wonderland

They are featured in "The Walrus & The Carpenter or The Tale of the Curious Oysters" segment wherein the little oysters are tricked by The Walrus and the Carpenter into going for a walk when in actuality they plan to eat them.

When the Carpenter spots a bed of oysters, the Walrus goes into the water to try to entice to come on a walk.The mother oyster declines his offer in a feeble voice saying it's not the time to leave her oyster bed, as she knows that oysters are eaten in months with an "R" in them. Though the mother advises that her children stay home, the Walrus silences her long enough to trick the oysters into following him. At the Carpenter's diner, while the Carpenter prepares a "sauce that's fit for kings", the greedy Walrus eats all of the oysters, leaving the Carpenter to discover their empty shells when he tried to find his share of them.

Interestingly, though they are eaten, 6 of them make their last appearance near the end in a reprise of "The Caucus Race" (4 of them were behind the Carpenter and in front of the card soldiers, and the other 2 were behind the card soldiers and in front of the hawk).

House of Mouse

In "House of Genius", they make a cameo walking over a sleeping Donald Duck.

Trivia

  • In the original poem, the mother oyster wasn't present. Instead it was the eldest oyster who warned the rest not to leave.
