A cute musical comedy that I haven't seen in many moons. The musical scenes really slow the movie down from a pacing standpoint but this movie is 82 years old.
I watched the colorized version because I had never seen it before.
Laurel and Hardy dominated when they were on screen. Stan is masterful with the darts and stick.
This has a lot of creepy elements as well. Henry Brandon as Barnaby is equivalent to the kid-catcher in Chitty-Chitty Bang-Bang and the wicked Witch of the West and he steals the show. The Bogeymen from Bogey-land are as scary as the flying monkeys from The Wizard of Oz.
The three little pigs, the cat and the mouse are super creepy but hilarious at the same time.
The iconic March of the Wooden Soldiers at the end is one of those great uplifting scenes that I never tire of, especially with the destruction and fear they cause to the Bogeymen.
