March of the Wooden Soldiers

March of the Wooden Soldiers

Rated: Not rated

Year: 1934

Cast: Stan Laurel, Oliver Hardy

A tall order: Instead of building "600 soldiers one foot high," Stan and Ollie build "100 soldiers six feet high." Their miscalculation comes in handy when mean Mr. Barnaby unleashes the Bogeymen on Toyland. He's put out because he didn't get to marry Bo-Peep.

What Parents Like: Those Bogeymen costumes are a low-tech marvel of shag carpeting and skirts.

What Kids Like: Kids will enjoy the physical slapstick and humor of Laurel and Hardy -- and the determined way the denizens of Toyland fight off the Bogeymen.
