The Mad Hatter and the March Hare are two characters that appear in Alice in Wonderland.
Their tea is always enchanted with special effects, such as shrinking the drinker.
In Kingdom Hearts, they are trapped in a painting on the wall in the Tea Party Garden. Strangely enough, the emotions of the Mad Hatter and March Hare change from time to time. When examined, the message that appears is "A very merry unbirthday. Sit to get your present." The reward obtained depends on which seat Sora takes.
Sora has to take a seat which he has never sat on before, or else the table and chairs will disappear and Heartless will overrun the place. When this happens, the Mad Hatter's and March Hare's faces turn shocked, and the painting will become unexaminable.
If Sora and company successfully get all the presents in the Tea Party Garden, the Mad Hatter and March Hare's faces momentarily turn happy. Upon examination, their faces turn sad and the message that is displayed is "That's all the presents."
- It is unknown how the Mad Hatter and the March Hare are a painting, instead of single flesh-and-blood characters. It may be explained in a future game, if possible.
- When the characters speak of an unbirthday, they refer to a riff on birthdays explained upon in the classic book Alice And The Looking Glass (And What She Found There), in which it is explained that (quote) each person gets just one birthday every year, but there are 364 un-birthdays (unquote). That means it could essentially be anyone's unbirthday within that world (or any world for that matter.
