Where the Wild Things Are is a 1974-75 animated short film released by Weston Woods Studios directed by Gene Deitch, based on the 1963 book of the same name by Maurice Sendak.

Sendak and Deitch began work on the film in 1969 at Krátký Film, Prague. Unfortunately, after Sendak returned to the United States, his parents died and he fell into a depression that would not allow him to work. In 1974, he and Deitch returned to the project, and film instantly became a great success. (Although the film was released sometime in 1974, the copyright date on the film's title card says 1973.)

Two versions of this film were released: the original 1974 version, with narration by Allen Swift and a musique concrète score composed by Deitch himself; and an updated version in 1988 with new music and narration by Peter Schickele.

Young Alice, having become a celebrity for her adventures in Wonderland, is in her bedroom dreaming about visiting Paris and sharing adventures with the storybook girl Madeline. While no comment is made as to where this Alice comes from or what time the film is set in, Alice seems to be American, as she likes Cheese Burgers and is having a great deal of trouble when it comes to getting to France. As Alice points out, “Getting to Wonderland was easy – all I had to do was fall down the rabbit hole. But let’s face it – it takes money to get to Paris!”.
