Overview
The Original Babes In Toyland, Now in Color

The meanest man in town, Silas Barnaby (Henry Kleinbach [aka Brandon]) threatens to kick Widow Peep (Florence Roberts) out of her shoe unless her daughter, Bo-Peep (Charlotte henry), agrees to marry him. But Bo-Peep loves Tom-Tom (Felix Knight), the piper's son, so it's up to Stannie Dum and Ollie Dee (Laurel and Hardy) to come to the rescue, with the life-size wooden soldiers they mistakenly made in the toy factory.

Originally released as Babes In Toyland, and now available in full color, the first version of Victor Herbert's 1903 operetta is Laurel and Hardy's most beloved film, remade by Disney in 1961 and for television in 1986. According to Leonard Maltin's Movie and Video Guide, this 1934 classic "looks better all the time…Stan and Ollie are in the fine form, and fantasy element of Toyland--especially attack by Bogeymen--is excellent.
