Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum are characters from Disney's 1951 animated feature film Alice in Wonderland, originally featured in the original book's sequel Alice Through the Looking Glass.

Background

The Tweedles are two fat brothers dressed in school boy uniforms and wearing propeller caps. They take particular delight in reciting poems and songs. They're playful and jolly which can seem a little annoying. They enjoy company and will always insist in a little game. They also have the ability to multiply.

Appearances

Alice in Wonderland

In the movie when Alice tries to chase after the White Rabbit she comes across Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum. The twin brothers offer to play a game called Who's Got the Button? or fight each other to which Alice turns down as she explains that she's following the White Rabbit because she's curious to know where he's going. This makes the brothers think about the Little Oysters who were curious and that something sad happened to them when they were. Alice decides to stay to listen to the story which is actually a poem called The Walrus and the Carpenter. Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum tell Alice how one time in the middle of the night The Walrus and the Carpenter managed to lure the Little Oysters away from their mother in the sea and offered them to dinner. Then while the Carpenter went to get some stuff to go with the meal The Walrus ate up all the Oysters for himself. This made the Carpenter mad and the Carpenter chased the Walrus away. At the end Alice tells Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum that the story was very sad to which the brothers reply "Yes. And there's a moral to it." To which Alice replies "Oh yes, a very good moral. If you happen to be an oyster". She then tries to leave but Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum insist that she listen to another one called Father Williams but when the brothers aren't looking Alice manages to sneak off and continue her search for the White Rabbit. Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum are seen again during the reprise of the caucus race, and briefly during the scene when Alice is running away from the Queen of Hearts before she wakes up from her dream.

Cameos

Tweedle Dum can be spotted during the final scene of Who Framed Roger Rabbit. He is seen in a brief back view leaving toward Toontown while the song is finishing.

The Tweedles make numerous appearances as guests in House of Mouse, primarily in crowd shots aside other Wonderland characters.

Live-action appearances

Adventures in Wonderland

The Tweedles appeared in the series, played by Robert Barry Fleming and Harry Waters Jr.. The Tweedles wear bright, colorful clothing and sing and dance in the style of hip hop music. As brothers, they share a strong sibling rivalry, often competing with each other about nearly everything. They are the most athletic residents of Wonderland, often playing sports and organizing games. The two's brotherly love usually triumphs over petty problems, and they usually offer Alice some sensible advice on any problems she may have.

Once Upon a Time in Wonderland

When Alice returns to Wonderland with Will and the White Rabbit, they immediately find themselves in a sticky situation; quite literally. The two amateur portal jumpers land in a mallowmarsh and begin sinking. A worried White Rabbit runs off to get help for them. He runs down a seemingly quiet road in Wonderland, but he soon stops when he comes across something terrifying to him; the Red Queen's royal carriage. Tweedledum and Tweedledee, who are both dressed in masquerade styled clothes and are both presumably working for the Red Queen as slaves under a threat, open the door and accompany her majesty off the carriage so she can meet with the rabbit. Another guard apprehends the rabbit and the Red Queen approaches him, with Tweedledum and Tweedledee by her side. She angrily tells the rabbit that he's late, to which he responds that he came as fast as he could. The party then take him back to the queen's palace, where it is revealed that the White Rabbit is working for the queen under threat of death, and he brought Alice back to Wonderland per her request.

Printed media

Wonderland

The Tweedles make a brief appearance during chapter 1 of the comic book based on the movie. The Queen intended to execute them both at the same time for the crime of "being unnecessarily annoying" (which is a fitting accusation, given their characters). However, they are able to escape their punishment by lying that the White Rabbit was conspiring against her with the "Alice Monster". The duo are last seen munching on the Queen's various pastries while the Queen angrily rushes off to kill the White Rabbit.
