A classic in every sense of the word!!!

first i must disagree with the review of your last member on his appraisal of henry brandons role as mr. barnaby. my wife and i were personal friends of henry brandon and it was his favorite role and his first. he maintained a friendship with stan laurel and oliver hardy until their passings. he was scheduled to appear at a laurel and hardy convention in july of 1990 with ms. charlotte henry and my wife and i were to meet him there. his recollection of the production sets were of vivid colors. when he attended the preview of the film he was disappointed because all he saw were greys and black and whites. he wished that hal roach would have shot the film in color even two strip technicolor. when talking to him about his long career always babes in toyland was foremost in his mind. the film holds up well today with another generation of children ( my grandkids included} and adults enjoying this trip into the world of fairytales and make believe. recently it has been released in computerized color, but i prefer the original black and white; but i think henry brandon would be happy to see his supreme villiany in the color version. a wonderful film, laurel and hardy at their best and the birth of a cinema villain for decades to come, my friend henry brandon nee kleinbach. yours at the movies joe rinando.

It has a great physical presence and some pretty funny stuff in it.

When video was much less accessible, I waited every holiday season to see this movie. I always remembered the fun stuff, especially Laurel and Hardy, but forgot some of the bad music and rather draggy dialogue. Nevertheless, the set designers did a nice job creating this nursery rhyme world, with three little pigs (one of whom gets turned to sausages), and a raft of other characters. The scenes in the toy shop with the Boys are the best. I do remember as a small child being pretty terrified of that land of the bogy men. It was well done, as are all places where "you must never go" or "where you will be banished to." Stan and Ollie do their shtick with finger wiggles and some silly game called "peewees." They attempt to save the day for the old woman who lives in a shoe. They manage to bumble everything up royally. Still, as things play out, this doesn't have the tightly knit fabric of their best comedies--they need to be on camera more. But as a holiday event, this is worth a look for a new generation.

A Dreamland Journey- -You Can Come Back Again


Babes in Toyland was the first movie I saw on a big screen- -a holiday presentation in my grammar school auditorium, circa 1957- -uncut, unlike the many subsequent presentations I saw on TV in after years. I fell in love with Stan and Ollie, with Toyland, with the magic of the movies, all at once- -all of us watching laughed and thrilled to see all of the characters we had heard of in nursery rhymes come to life- -even the Three Little Pigs (with "Who's Afraid of the Big Bad Wolf" on the soundtrack, courtesy of Uncle Walt Disney's studio!)- -we trembled with ecstatic terror at Silas Barnaby and his army of Bogeymen and cheered the house down when Stan and Ollie discovered the Perfect way to rout them and save the day!- -and yes, many of us, watching Charlotte Henry and Felix Knight as Bo-Peep and her plucky suitor Tom-Tom (the Piper's Son), found awakening within ourselves the realization of what romantic love might be about.- -and Stan and Ollie?- -a funny, wonderful duo, children like ourselves, joyously silly and giddily amazing. I dreamt of Toyland that night, and many nights after- -sweet dreams, scarey dreams, dreams of Ollie and Stannie as wonderful friends- -and once I woke crying, realizing that once I was grown up, Toyland would fade to a distant memory. Well, I was wrong. You can go back to Toyland, that Childhood's Dreamland, any time you watch this movie. I love it. You may, too. Note: current video versions are mostly also uncut, some are colorized, which in this instance (perhaps the only one)improves the presentation!
