|Laurel & Hardy's 5th full-length movie was the only one to come with a parental guidance warning, due to the 'scary' Bogeymen scenes. They are Stannie Dum and Ollie Dee, living in a big shoe in a thriving Toyland and working at the factory on a consignment for Santa Claus. The problem is they misinterpret the order: instead of making 600 one-foot tall soldiers, they make 100 six-foot soldiers instead.|
If you find all the musical numbers a bit off-putting, stick with it because this movie has some genuinely brilliant scenes of sheer comedy. A good example is the scene where they come out of their home and Ollie says "It's a certainty anything you can do I can do", to which Stan replies with a couple of examples of his strange mannerisms from previous movies! Classic stuff!
