The 1952 reissue title for Hal Roach’s 1934 film version of Victor Herbert’s Babes in Toyland. Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy star as Stannie Dum and Ollie Dee, bumbling apprentices to the master toymaker of Toyland.

Really cool film with a Holiday feel and message. Usually shown around Christmas, this is a amalgamation of lots of fairy tales, with bizarre costumes (a monkey dressed like Mickey Mouse as an example), a 20 yr old playing an old man, and funny scenes with L&H. Not my fav full length comedy by the duo, but its still great fun. Don't know why it took me so long to see this one. Solid 30s comedy. 4 stars
Wonderful sets, bizzarely awesome costumes (specifically the cat and mouse, and three little pigs) and a hilarious performance by Laurel and Hardy make this one of the great traditional holiday classics. Kids still love it today.
