The three little pigs are in their nightgowns - like everyone else in Toy Land - when Stan and Ollie return with Tom Tom and Bo-Peep. When the three little pigs close the blinds to their houses when the bogeymen are attacking, two of them are shown with their regular clothes on. Eventually they are seen with their nightgowns again when Toy Land is fighting the bogeymen. See more »

I am a huge Laurel and Hardy fan, and while this may not be considered one of their great feature length films, I love to get this out for the December holidays. After the rest of the family watches "Wonderful Life", "Scrooge" and the Nutcracker, I pull this out and laugh until I cry. The only link to the holiday is the use of the "March of the Soldiers" music - but that's enough for me. Stan Laurel's ingenious battle tactics just send me into a fit.
