Dean Winchester from Supernatural

dean-winchester

Dean Winchester is a fictional character and one of the two protagonists of The CW Television Network’s Supernatural, which began airing in 2005. He is mainly portrayed by Jensen Ackles, with other versions of the character having been portrayed by Hunter Brochu (toddler), Ridge Canipe (child), Nicolai Lawton-Giustra (pre-teen), Brock Kelly and Dylan Everett (teen), and Chad Everett (elderly). Dean hunts demons, spirits and other supernatural creatures with his younger brother Sam, occasionally their friend and father figure Bobby Singer and is recurrently assisted by his friend Castiel, an angel who joins them in season four.

dean-winchester

Dean Winchester was created by Eric Kripke, creator and original showrunner of Supernatural, when he pitched a show to the WB about two brothers who investigate the supernatural. Dean’s name is a homage to Jack Kerouac’s road-trip novel On the Road, tying into Kripke’s concept for an Americana road-trip television series. It was originally intended for the brothers’ last name to be “Harrison” as a nod to actor Harrison Ford, as Kripke wanted Dean to have the “devil-may-care swagger of Han Solo”. However, there was a Sam Harrison living in Kansas, so the name had to be changed for legal reasons.

Combining his interest in the Winchester Mystery House and his desire to give the series the feel of “a modern-day Western”, Kripke settled on the surname of “Winchester”. Dean and his brother Sam are from Lawrence, Kansas, due to its closeness to Stull Cemetery, a location famous for its urban legends. Jensen Ackles, who portrays Dean Winchester, was originally asked to audition for the role of Sam, but preferred the character of Dean after reading the script.

The Mad Hatter from Alice in Wonderland

mad-hatter

The Hatter (Hatta in Through the Looking-Glass, more commonly known as The Mad Hatter, and Tarrant Hightopp in the  Tim Burton’s 2010 movie), is a fictional character from Lewis Carroll’s novel Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and its sequel, Through the Looking-Glass and What Alice Found There. As Alice and the March Hare are the only other individuals to appear in both books, he can be considered a principal character. Although he is never referenced as ‘The Mad Hatter’ in either of Carroll’s books, the Hatter is portrayed as ‘mad’ and hence has become known as such.

mad-hatter-james-tennielIn Lewis Carroll’s novel Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, the Hatter explains to Alice that he and the March Hare are trapped in a never-ending tea party because, when he tried to sing for the Queen of Hearts at a celebration, she sentenced him to death for “murdering the time.” He escaped this fate, but Time, out of anger at his attempted to “murder”, has halted himself for the Hatter, keeping him and the March Hare at 6:00 pm forever. The tea party, when Alice arrives, involves switching places at the table at any given time (although based on the rotation, the Hatter is the only one to receive a clean cup since the other characters follow him); making (along with the March Hare) somewhat short, personal remarks; asking unanswerable riddles, and reciting nonsensical poetry, all of which eventually drive Alice away. The Hatter appears again as a witness at the Knave of Hearts’ trial, where the Queen appears to recognize him as the singer she sentenced to death, and the King of Hearts also cautions him not to be nervous “or I’ll have you executed on the spot.”

When the character makes his appearance as “Hatta” in the sequel Through the Looking-Glass, he is in trouble with the law once again. This time, however, he is not necessarily guilty: the White Queen explains that quite often subjects are punished before they commit a crime, rather than after, and sometimes they are condemned for crimes they haven’t committed. The Hatter is also mentioned as one of the White King’s messengers (the other is the March Hare) when the King explains that he needs two messengers: “one to come, and one to go.” Sir James Tenniel’s illustration also depicts him sipping from a teacup as he did before in the original novel, adding weight to Carroll’s hint that the two characters are indeed the same. Although he look exactly the same with the first book, it seem Alice doesn’t recognize him as the Mad Hatter. The dramatis personae for Through the Looking-Glass designates him as being a white pawn.

The phrase “as mad as a hatter” refers to the 19th century usage of a mercury-based compound in the making of fine hats. Due to long-term exposure, hatters would often develop symptoms of mercury posioning, such as tremors or mood-swings, that would make them appear “mad” to others.

Disney’s Film Adaptations

Alice in Wonderland (1951)

The Mad Hatter is voiced by Ed Wynn in Disney’s 1951 film. He is first seen when Alice wonders off in the forest and the Cheshire Cat tells her to visit them for directions back home. Alice visits but in the middle of a very odd Tea Party with the March Hare, The Mad Hatter and the Dormouse. The Mad Hatter and March Hare are singing A Very Merry Unbirthday but is interrupted when Alice starts to clap. First The Mad Hatter and March Hare are upset because Alice was not asked to join but become pleased when Alice explains to them that she enjoyed their singing and they welcome her to join.

Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland (2010)

Tim Burton’s Mad Hatter, named Tarrant Hightopp, first met Alice when she was a young child at the age of seven. They became friends quickly, even enjoying tea together. Alice forgot these memories while she was away from Underland, but at the age of nineteen, Alice falls down the rabbit hole again. She has no recollection of Tarrant when she rediscovers his tea table of friends and joins them in their rebellion against the Red Queen. Johnny Depp portrayed the Mad Hatter in the 2010 movie. In the movie, he is known for his Futterwacken which is a dance of immense joy.
