DVD Verdict gave the film a positive review, noting that while the original Alice in Wonderland story "kooky and fanciful, but also a little creepy", the Sesame Street version was sanitized for its target audience by polishing the original's "rough edges" and "removing any real sense of danger." They further noted that there is a place for some scary children's tales, but not on Sesame Street. While the film is targeted to a very young audience, some of the jokes are for adults. An example given is on how Ernie explains to Bert "that, despite popular misconception," the characters of Tweedledum and Tweedledee are "not actually in this story". It was noted that while the songs written by Mark Radice are bright and fun, "they don't quite live up to the best tunes Sesame Street has to offer." It was concluded "There are a lot of bad remakes of Alice in Wonderland. This isn't one of them."
