Alice Angel is a cartoon character created by Joey Drew Studios. Similar to the other popular characters, like Bendy and Boris, Alice starred in a series of cartoons during her 1933 debut as the studio's first female cartoon character.

General Description

Creation

"It has always been part of our plan to bring a dynamic, strong, and intelligent character like Alice to the table,"
Joey Drew[1]

On September 12th, 1933, Joey Drew Studios announced the first female character to join the ranks of their beloved cartoon characters Bendy and Boris. Alice was designed to be a counterbalance to the mischievous antics of Bendy and the easygoing nature of Boris the Wolf, she wants everything to be done right. She was the last character created by Henry Stein before he left the studio, but the record book of Joey Drew Studios states that Joey was the person who created her.

Alice Angel was first voiced by Susie Campbell who feels to bear a connection with Alice, unlike the other characters she previously voiced,[2] while mentioning that Sammy thinks Alice may be as popular as Bendy someday.[2] However, later on, Joey Drew announced that Allison Pendle is hired as the new voice actress for Alice Angel out of the blue,[3] much to Susie's utter shock and depression.[4]

Physical Appearance

"A girl in a short black strapless dress with a halo."
Dreams Come to Life[5]

Alice is a female humanoid cartoon character with slightly wavy medium-length black hair, thin eyebrows, and black lipstick. She has a slender frame with a small waist and fairly wide hips. She wears a black dress similar to that of a 1920's flapper dress with a short skirt (which was seen as appealing in the 1920s/30s) and a white bow tie that is identical to Bendy's is around her bust line. Like the other characters, Alice has pie eyes with a single eyelash each, and a small mole under her right eye. She has slightly short arms wearing a pair of white gloves over black detached sleeves, with circles in the palms. Her legs have a pair of stockings or black garter belts. In the game's 1st anniversary image, she wears a pair of black shoes, although her appearance is slightly different than in-game, her hair is slightly less wavy, her dress is a little longer, she doesn't wear her garter belts, and the lines on her gloves aren't present. She wears a much longer, floor-length version of her dress in the "Siren Serenade" poster, although her mole is seen near her left eye.

Alice has a combination of angelic and demonic traits, with a pair of horns as well as a halo floating above her head. Her horns can move to point downwards when she's in distress, as seen in her game-over image in Bendy in Nightmare Run.

Personality

"Alice isn't your typical girl next door. She's a character with charm, but brains too. When Bendy is getting up to something, Alice is there to throw a wrench into his schemes."
Joey Drew[1]

"What kind of gal? Well, she's quite a gal," said Joey Drew with a wry smile. "She sings; she dances. We think Alice's fiery, sharp character will really resonate with Bendy fans,"
Joey Drew[1]

Alice is stated to be a dynamic, strong and an intelligent character with charm and brains. She is there to stop Bendy's schemes whenever the little devil is up to something, acting as the more sensible side of the two. Suggested by the "SHE SINGS! SHE DANCES!" tagline from Alice's Sent From Above poster, Alice has a talent for dancing and singing. Heard from her "I'm Alice Angel" song from Bendy and the Ink Machine: Chapter 3, she is revealed to be sweet and happy-go-lucky, as her angelic nature would imply. Sammy Lawrence referred to Alice's voice as both "heavenly and beautiful".[6]

As shown in the cartoon "Cheap Seats", she is generally upbeat and enjoys spending time with Bendy, as evident by her agreeing to go see a film, upon seeing a poster.

Bendy and the Ink Machine

Alice appeared from the second to fifth chapter of Bendy and the Ink Machine as several props dedicated to her like plush toys, brief cutouts, and cartoon clips. Twisted Alice and Allison Angel are the original Alice's real-life counterparts.

  • In Chapter 3: Rise and Fall, from the Heavenly Toys department, posters, plush toys, and even a cardboard cutout of Alice can be found throughout the chapter. In the room dedicated to Alice before Twisted Alice shows up for a jumpscare, several televisions turn on automatically and play the "I'm Alice Angel" song performed by Alice Angel for a little while. Shortly after, Twisted Alice shows up for the first time. On Level 9's inner chamber, a giant statue of Alice holding a "SHE'S QUITE A GAL!" sign can be seen above the entrance to the flooded warehouse.
  • In Chapter 4: Colossal Wonders, more numerous environments (posters, sculpture heads, etc) related to Alice Angel reappeared around multiple locations.
  • In Chapter 5: The Last Reel, Alice Angel appears in posters and animation clips.

Trivia

General Facts

  • Alice's design appears to be inspired by Betty Boop, a cartoon creation of Fleischer Studios from a similar time period to the game. They are similar in that they act as a beautiful and cheerful female character to act as a polar opposite to the other main character of the respective studio (Betty Boop to Bimbo, Alice to Bendy). Furthermore, similarly to Betty Boop, Alice's "Sent From Above" poster tagline suggests that she dances and sings.
  • The fact that Alice has both a halo and a pair of horns yet lacks wings, implies that she is a fallen angel, supported by the fact that the episode she stars in is titled "Sent From Above".
    • The holes in each palm of Alice's gloves are not only strikingly identical to the way Mickey's gloves looked during the 1930's (the image for example), but could also be a reference to stigmata, a term in Christian faith to describe marks or sores on the body in the same places Jesus Christ was crucified, referencing her status as an angel.
  • From theMeatly's first Q&A video, when it was questioned if Bendy and Alice are dating, theMeatly's only response was a look of seemingly shocked silence.[7]
    • The nature of Alice and Bendy's relationship is also hinted at further in an old description of her official merchandise.[8]

In-Game Facts

General
  • According to theMeatly on Twitter, Alice is "quite a gal", a hint to the tagline that would accompany her appearance in Chapter 3."That Angel... she's quite a girl."[9] The tagline, "SHE'S QUITE A GAL!", held by Alice's statue in Chapter 3, is a reference to the same tweet.
    • theMeatly also stated that there is no problem "an Angel" can't fix, foreshadowing Alice's physical reveal in the same chapter."There's no problem an Angel can't fix."[10]
  • Alice is the only cartoon character who has been confirmed to speak with words in the show. Additionally, she is the only one with a confirmed voice actor.
Chapter 3: Rise and Fall
  • Suggested by the "I'm Alice Angel" song performed by the actress Lauren Synger from the game's development team, it is entirely possible that Alice's singing in-game is voiced by Allison Pendle instead of Susie who was replaced unexpectedly, as Susie herself is voiced by Alanna Linayre while Allison is assumed to be voiced by Lauren.

  • Similar to Boris, Alice's appearance is model after some of her PhatMojo merchandise products, such as collectible figure packs and clips. PhatMojo's logo seen in the mobile's beginning screen before the starting menu clearly explains Alice's design.
  • Alice's outfit design seen after defeating Gaskette on the "Death and Taxis" level's final act seems similar to J. Howard Miller's 1943 "We Can Do It!" World War II wartime poster.
