Opposing the evil Barnaby, Ollie Dee and Stanley Dum try and fail to pay-off Mother Peep's mortgage and mislead his attempts to marry Little Bo. Enraged, Barnaby's Bogeymen are set on Toyland.
Henry Brandon (b. Jun. 1912), who played 'old man' Silas Barnaby, was nearly four years younger than Felix Knight (b. Nov. 1908), who played Tom-Tom Piper and was Little Bo-Peep's sweetheart.
Chief of Police:
Come, come, children. On your way to school.
During the fight scene between Tom-Tom and Barnaby, at one point Tom-Tom is on top of Barnaby, then does a somersault over him, and we see him start to stand up in front of Barnaby. In the next shot, he is on top of Barnaby again (same position as before he flipped), and in the next he is standing up in front of Barnaby.
The titles appear on a child's toy building block that falls into position onscreen.
Although the film was fully restored in the 1990s, the title remained "March of the Wooden Soldiers", and did not revert to the original 1934 title, "Babes in Toyland" until the 2006 DVD release by Legend Films (advertised as "March of the Wooden Soldiers" but containing the original title and credits on the film itself).
