The Quotes webpage for Alice in Wonderland (1951) has no matches for
"behinder", "hurrier", and "hurrieder".

Also, there is no match for this query:
"behinder" site:wikiquote.org

This suggests that other researchers have not noticed the quotation.
I haven't tried to check the Alice in Wonderland (1951) script or a
subtitle database.

Back in 2014 I viewed the 1951 movie to verify a quotation spoken by
the Disney version of The White Rabbit - "Don’t just do something,
stand there." I don't recall hearing "behinder" while watching the
movie, but that is weak evidence.
