The characters origins can be traced back to the term "mad as a hatter" which was used in 18th and 19th century England in reference to an insane person. This phrase was used because top hats at this time period were shined with mercury. Some men would breath in to much of the mercury vapors from the hat which would cause them to slip into a state of mania making them crazy much like the famously notoriously insane character in the Alice in Wonderland story.
