Through the Looking-Glass, and What Alice Found There
Alice meets the gnat on her head. He calls Alice an old friend, but Alice doesn't recognize it leading it to depression. During the train ride Alice hears the Gnat mentioning topics he notices that would make a good joke. The Gnat seems to love jokes, however, he doesn't like saying them himself, he prefers others to make jokes. After the journey on the train, the Gnat introduces her to three insects:the Rocking-Horse-Fly, the Snap-Dragonfly, and the Bread-and-Butterfly. Then, it sighs itself away.
- Though the gnat doesn't make an appearance in the 1999 film, it was mentioned in the second verse of Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Bat when the Mad Hatter was recognized by the Queen of Hearts.
