Your Resource For Local Family Fun


Rated G. On blu-ray 12/11. Ok for kids 6+.

Go retro with this 1961 film, the first true live-action musical from the Walt Disney Studio, Tommy Sands pairs up with Annette Funicello, along with the famous Ray Bolger and Ed Wynn, and Disney staples Tommy Kirk and Kevin Corcoran. The story takes place in Mother Goose land, where villains shrink our heroes down to toy size, and our heroes must enlist help from the toys in the Toymaker's shop to fight back. Great special effects for the time, including stop motion animation that brings the toys to life. Remember, this is 30 years before the computer animation in Toy Story!
