Looking for a children's magic forest type TV show that has skipped down the memory hole.

This one's been bugging me forever, and the things I remember are vague enough to make Googling fruitless.
Live action, set in a forest. It might be Alice in Wonderland inspired, as I remember a giant white rabbit character. This Alice idea might have been placed in my mind by years of searching though, as I don't remember associating it with those stories as a child. The main character was a blond young woman in a white dress. Possibly British or Australian, but seen in Canada in the late 1980s.
The only thing I remember clearly is the villain's henchman, a big monster, sort of a goofier Sweetums from the Muppets. In one episode the villain (can't remember if it was a male or female villain, but my gut says male) instructed the henchman to go hypnotize the heroine by swinging a pocket watch at her, and not to look at the watch himself. This led to him walking through the forest, swinging the watch and saying "Watch this watch, me no look." over and over again until he looks at the watch and hypnotizes himself.
Please hope me!
