Squidward arrives in the Krusty Krab as happy as ever, and time, after time again he is getting pummeled, such as Thaddeus's morning breath in his face, or getting the door slammed on him, but since his clarinet is safe, he is happy. But when Nazz Rechid comes to the Krusty Krab, her new baby drools on the clarinet, he bursts with anger. He demands Mr. Krabs to give him a place to store his stuff, and Mr. Krabs gives him his Navy locker, and SpongeBob single-handedly cleans it. He stores his toothbrush, while Squidward puts his clarinet in there, not risking it getting soiled before his presentation. While Squidward is going through his daily routines he discovers SpongeBob is always doing something to the locker, in fear for his clarinet, he goes to see what happens, and left loose change on the floor when he was giving to the customer. Just then Mr. Krabs jumps out wildly and acts like a gorilla scaring everyone away from the loose change he hears. When Squidward went in there, it is revealed SpongeBob had converted it to a whole room, and the second time he visits it he finds his clarinet gone, and goes looking. He discovers a small door near the floor, and crawls through it, only to enter a mysterious forest, made of clarinets. he spots his, just before he is picked up by a large eagle, "The Keeper" of The Hornet Forest or Clarinetland telling him to learn respect, and to grant peace to clarinets, And that a clarinet can not be owned, in desperation, he claims he has and tries to escape, but the eagle, "The Keeper" does not believe him and swallows him. He then finds himself chasing SpongeBob for his clarinet, into a giant pinball machine, where Patrick in giant size says it is THE PRESSURE that is doing all of this, and then Squidward finds himself chasing SpongeBob, literally through Space, and finally being back in the small locker, and running of to his presentation. He then finds SpongeBob in his case, and runs from the stage, right before he gave the presentation, revealing he was giving him the clarinet.
- Before Squidward opens the curtain to Clarinetland, he has his work hat on. After he opens the curtain, his hat is gone.
- The way Squidward enters Clarinetland, using the small locker is similar to the way the characters of Narnia enter to the land of Narnia.
- Running Gag: Spongebob improving the locker, and squidward wondering whats happening to his claranet.
- Squidward and SpongeBob tumbling through space to classical music is a reference to Stanley Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey.
- The title is a reference to the 1865 book and the subsequent 1951 and 2010 movies Alice in Wonderland.

- When SpongeBob walks past Squidward taking an order, Galley Grub is misnamed 'Gally Grub'.
- This is the second appearance of the Alternate-Universe Squidward following The Algae's Always Greener. In this episode, he is the reflection of Squidward in the mirrors. The alternate-universe Squidward in this episode however could be just an illusion. This is unlikely though as the clarinets come out of the mirror.
