    Two MGM Stages, across from each other on the studios main axis road, were used for filming the productions' sets. These are the same two stages used for "The Wizard of OZ" 1939 epic musical. The right (road-side) stage, (where the yellow brick road leads into the field of poppies) - front stage load-in housed the miniature shrinking room; Alice's study with the mirror looking glass fireplace; Sammy Davis' giant mushroom set; the Red Queen of Hearts garden; the back-half rear part of the stage was for the castle dining room set with the 60' long table. On the (left) other side of the MGM axis road is the larger of the two stages (which was the yellow brick road leading into the OZ town square). For Alice, the middle of the stage was a giant landscaped forest, with trails, foot paths that lead to a bridge over a stream, an open forest dell, where the Tweedle Twins, Humpty Dumpty, the White Knight were staged. The right side of the forest set, was used to build various sets for filming, struck, to replace with other sets as required. In this area, the kitchen interior, the rabbit's tea party in front of a cottage, the checkerboard field, the train, the tunnel, the miniature train set - all were positioned in this area. On the opposite stage end was built the small miniature hare's house; the chess board; the room with the base board hole which Alice nibbles, shrinks, climbs through the mouse hole, tumbles and falls into a river-swimming in water, with various actors (Shelly Winters) in bird costumes; effects plate filming. Two actual locations were filmed out of the studio. A Tudor style house backyard was filmed in Pasadena. The oyster scene was filmed north of Malibu beach because Irwin Allen wanted a real ocean with real sand and rocks for his cast to frolic. At great expense, carpenters and laborers had to cut out of the rocks an embedded 30' long ship's keel from a 1900 shipwreck, just to clear the rocks for the actors to stumble around! Fun! fun! Fun! Shelly Winters demanded Irwin Allen give her a "line" instead of bird croaking sounds! "I'm an Oscar winner, you have to give me words to speak! Remember the Poseidon! You are still trying to drown me!". Construction had to build a special potty chair with the rear center cut out for Shelly to tuck the costume's bird tail when she sat off camera, waiting for her scene's filming.

    Humpty Dumpty's egg-bowl shape costume was fit with a fan inside the lower half of the egg bowl body frame to keep Jonathan Winters' body temperature cool. Besides being cumbersome for Jonathan Winters to walk, unable to sit in a chair, he was placed (more like perched) upon the stone wall, waiting for his cameo to be filmed. After rehearsing his segment, camera and the film magazine were delayed loading. Additional lighting required further delay. Irwin Allen sat in his director's high chair, along side the director in his high chair, and the cinema photographer in his high chair, ringside in front of Winters. The rest of the crew stood surrounding the big shots listening, watching Jonathan perform his hilarious comedic observations of his costume, of Irwin, of the production; remarking about various crew members wearing Marine insignia t-shirts/sweats, various crew member's general attire, clothing, their hair; mingled with shtick from his night club routine. Jonathan had the crew laughing hilariously, entertaining for sixty minutes. Irwin turned aside to the Production Designer, standing next to him, questioning "What's so funny". Jonathan Winters was the crew's favorite cameo performance, but sadly nothing was filmed of his very funny routine. Jonathan Winters is simply a very funny entertaining comic. Establishing a wonderful instant rapport with an audience.
