The Cheshire Cat is a mysterious feline distinguishable by its wide grin. It has the ability to disappear at will, leaving only its smile behind. It enjoys speaking in riddles, which tends to annoy or confuse whoever it converses with, and it is altogether on nobody's side, preferring to have its own agenda.
In the 1951 animated film by Walt Disney, the Cheshire Cat is voiced by Sterling Holloway; in a DVD extra featuring a deleted song from the film titled "I'm Odd", Jim Cummings took over the voice role from Holloway, who was by that time deceased. In the video game adaption "American McGee's Alice", the Cat is voiced by Roger L. Jackson. In the 2010 film adaption by Tim Burton, the Cat is voiced by Stephen Fry. In the Hanna-Barbera television special adaption, the Cat is voiced by Sammy Davis Junior.
