Cheshire Cat David Hall

The Cheshire Cat shows an inhuman malice to him.

The version of the Cheshire Cat from David Hall's 1939 pitch was a far more sinister beast than in the final film. He managed to lead the original version of Alice into a great many dangers, ending with her nearly being executed by the Queen of Hearts. When he fell to wasteland, the Friends quickly recruited him for their forces. He is technically only a bit less ambiguous than his final counterpart, given that the final Cheshire Cat is less grim and evil in his design and doesn't lead Alice into actively life-threatening situations but does basically the same thing.
