Villain Overview
The Jubjub Bird

The Jubjub Bird

The Jubjub Bird (also sometimes spelled Jub Jub Bird) is a character in both Lewis Carroll's Through The Looking Glass and Tim Burton's 2010 film, Alice in Wonderland. The Jubjub Bird is a dangerous creature mentioned in Lewis Carroll's nonsense poems "Jabberwocky" and "The Hunting of the Snark".

In "Jabberwocky", the only detail given about the bird is that the protagonist should "beware" it. However, in The Hunting of the Snark, the creature is described in much greater depth. It is found in a narrow, dark, depressing and isolated valley. Its voice, when heard is described "a scream, shrill and high" like a pencil squeaking on a slate, and significantly scares those who hear it, including the Beaver who "turned pale" from end to tip. Its character traits include that it is "desperate" and "lives in perpetual passion", it knows any friend it has met once before and will not look at a bribe.

Appearances

Alice in Wonderland

The Jubjub Bird appears in Tim Burton's version of Alice in Wonderland as a black monstrous vulture-like bird under control of the Red Queen. He has a large crest, stubby, broad wings, and seems to be a very primitive bird, possessing sharp teeth and a well-developed blue tongue as well as a beak with red markings on it to resemble lipstick, and long legs that resemble those of a theropod dinosaur. His plumage is heavily striped, which may be used to confuse prey, and he has a long neck and large red eyes. Contrasting to his long legs and neck, the Jubjub has a relatively short tail. He makes a low husky shriek. In the movie, he captures both Tweedledee and Tweedledum away from Alice. He is not seen again until the Mad Hatter and the Dormouse are about to be executed, the Cheshire Cat reveals himself and the Hatter exposes the Red Queen's inner circle as frauds, also forming a following from the prisoners in the audience, so the Queen releases the Jubjub Bird to set people straight. The Jubjub Bird accompanies the Red Queen's forces into battle against the White Queen. During the final battle, after the Hatter interferes the Jubjub Bird joins in the fight, only to later have his head crushed by a giant boulder from a catapult fired by one of the Red Queen's soldiers, ultimately killing him.

Trivia

  • In the computer game, WarBreeds, a reptilian version of the Jubjub is the flying unit of the Tanu race.
  • The Bluetones recorded a song titled "The Jub-Jub Bird" which was released in 1998 on their second album, Return to the Last Chance Saloon.
