Prod. 2069 (Alice) - Seq. 01.0 - Opening
We start with the simple front page, and then, after the credits, we have Wilfred "Jaxon" Jackson's Seq. 01.0 which introduces Alice, her cat Dinah, her sister, the White Rabbit and the songs "Cats and Rabbits" and "I'm Late". Assistant director Mike Holoboff, layout the immensely prodigious MacLaren Stewart.

Addition (25 Aug 2015): in a comment, Ross asks - how did they make scene 27? Here is a little explanation. Basically the scene was split into two parts, with an overlay added in the middle of the scene when the camera was at the easternmost field. Though there are several ways of splitting the BGs, the version shown here is how it seems to have been done. On the Blu-Ray you can actually see the cut edges of the overlay. Keeping all water on the same (bottom) BG seems logical for consistency; splitting it can be tricky, since it is a subtle wash, and if it were split where the front right water seems "on top," the leaves of the overlay (or BG2) would pop on. There would not be difference in George Rowley's rather simple water effects either way. However, there seem to be several water levels.
