The Mad Hatter's Orange Hair

Alice in Wonderland is a popular children's fairytale that has attracted fans over several generations. One of the most popular characters is the Mad Hatter. Surprisingly, many people do not think he was crazy without reason. There are different theories that explain the Hatter's strange behaviour.
The story of Alice in Wonderland has produced a number of memorable characters, but one of the most intriguing seems to be the Mad Hatter. He’s unpredictable, witty, charming one minute and sinister the next. 

Johnny Depp, who portrays the Mad Hatter in Tim Burton’s film about Alice, said, "I think he was poisoned, very, very poisoned, and it was coming out through his hair, through his fingernails and eyes." In the 2010 movie, his orange hair indicates that the Hatter was suffering from mercury poisoning, which happened to many hatters who used a toxic mercury solution to cure felt in the mid 17th to the mid 20th centuries.
