[Ollie takes a note from the money purse and tries to read. Stan turns it right-side-up. The note says "I.O.U $1.47']
I borrowed it.
I know you borrowed it. What I want to know is, what did you borrow it for?
Well, I lost all me pee-wees playing with Little Jack Horner, and I had to get some more.

(main title of re-release version) March of the Wooden Soldiers formerly Babes in Toyland See more »
This movie has always been known to me as "March of the Wooden Soldiers, and has always had a special place in my memories of my childhood. I remember it was always shown on Thanksgiving Day after the Macy's parade, but we children would never be able to see the whole thing because it came on right at dinner time (this was long before VCR's). This is a wonderful, endearing film... bringing out the essence of childhood and the simplistic joys of make believe. Laurel and Hardy are their usual wonderful selves in this film. All the lead actors were wonderful, especially Henry Brandon as Barnaby -- oh, how he scared me as a child! I especially enjoyed the singing of Charlotte Henry and Felix Knight. When my work took me overseas, I made sure I had a copy of this movie with me so that I could continue the tradition of watching it each year on or close to Thanksgiving. Like that other holiday favorite of mine, Miracle on 34th Street (original version), this is a true classic -- a staple for the holiday season.
