'Alice in Wonderland' Suit: Off With Their Heads!

8/17/2010 4:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

A man claiming to be the creator of the "Chair Heart" used in the movie  "Alice in Wonderland" is suing the Disney Corporation, claiming the company used his design in the flick and didn't pay him a cent.

In his lawsuit, filed in L.A. County Superior Court, Arman Mkrtchyan is asking for a "decoration fee" of $50,000.

Mkrtchyan claims the "Alice" chairs are a dead ringer for his design ... in fact, he claims he has a chair for every suit in the deck -- including spades, clubs and diamonds.

We'll see who folds this time ...

I am guessing his 'deck' is missing a few cards.

(and Tim Burton doesn't need to 'lift' ideas and designs from other people.)

So whoever invented the deck of cards can sue this guy for making chairs using his designs? LOL These lawsuits are insane.

wtf is he talking about????? i have seen wal-mart stuff in movies and sit-coms. i think they just go to wal-mart and pay for the stuff same as anyone else. once they have paid for it what else could they possibly owe. on the other hand if that chair was a can of coke the movie folks would collect advertisement money from the coca-cola people, so maybe really he owes THEM money for advertising his chairs? if they even really are his chairs like he says

Have you ever heard of a contract? Goes really well with chairs, marriages and services. Give it a try! You won't look so much like a maroon with a contract in your hand!

Oh please... GTFO

Talk about a frivolous lawsuit. This douche is just hoping that it'll be cheaper for them to fork over the $50K then defend against this frivolous suit.

T.M.Z.,
I know I may seem real naive but hey its worth a try.
Oct 9th would have been John Lennon`s 70th b-day So do you
think someone over there can get in touch with Oprah (who is Oprah) and Ashton Kutcher(popular likeable awesome cool factor)
to get in touch with Paul McCartney and convince him to get in
touch with Ringo the late Georges son (Dhani) the late John L sons (Sean-Julian) and have a concert on Johns b-day this Oct.9th.In my opinion people all over the world would love this.
A great honor for John Lennon who only wanted peace and love for everyone.
So T.M.Z. be a bit like Bill Graham and see what you can do and
imagine if they agreed (Rock History) and Harvey (A Lawyer) could take care of all the legal issues.
Best to everyone. P.S Really think T.M.Z could do this (if you want to)
