Babes in Toyland (1961) - full transcript

Tom the Piper's Son is about to marry Mary Quite Contrary. On the eve of their wedding, evil miser Barnaby hires two henchmen to drown Tom and steal Mary's sheep, cared for by Little Bo Peep, thus depriving Mary and the children she lives with of their livelihood, forcing her to marry Barnaby. The sheep are stolen, but Gonzorgo and Roderigo, Barnaby's henchmen, double-cross him by selling Tom to a band of gypsies instead, leaving Tom with the opportunity to escape and make his way with Mary, Bo-Peep, and other Mother Goose characters to Toyland.

Hello, everybody.

My name is Sylvester, Sylvester J. Goose.

My friends call me Syl, or sometimes Silly.

At this time, it is with unmitigated pleasure...

Sylvester, talk faster.

Talk faster?

You're lucky to find a goose who can talk at all.

As I was saying, it is my pleasure to present

your hostess for this occasion, weighing 189 pounds...


I present the one and only Mother Goose.

Thank you, Sylvester.


I'm here to invite you to a celebration in our village.

Tomorrow is the wedding of Tom and Mary.

2 of my closest friends.

I know.

So put on your best smile, set free your imagination,

and come with us to Mother Goose Village.

fie on you, you frivolous fools.

Your tide is at the surge.

Today you sing a happy song.

Tomorrow... A dirge!


You see, unbeknownst to Mary, she inherits scads of money

when she marries.

Thus it carries, that if I'm to get my hands on Mary's money,

the person Mary marries must be me.
Not Tom, me.

I must do away with Tom.



Come, let us plot.



Now, gentlemen, it is said you'll do anything for money.

You see, your infamous reputation is widespread.

Oh, thank you, Mr. Barnaby.

Now make note while I plan this little caper.

Mark this down.

Mark this down.

Item one... item one... Kidnap Tom.

Kidnap Tom.

No, no, kidnap him.

Item 2... Item 2...

Throw him in the sea.

Throw him in the sea.

No, no, just throw him in the sea.

Item 3... item 3... Mary's sheep. Hmm.

These sheep support her.

Somehow I must thwart her.

She's much too independent with them.

Therefore, she must be without them.

Steal the sheep.

Steal the sheep.

No, steal them.

A-a-anything else, Mr. Barnaby?

That's all for now, gentlemen, and, uh,

when this deed is through, this tidy stipend is for you.

A pittance. Preposterous.

This experience should make us wiser.

We do not do business with a miser.

Come, Rodrigo.

We are wasting our time.

Behold, my mercenary friends.

Does this satisfy your greed?

Oh, indeed it does.

Indeed it does.

Gonzorgo, Rodrigo, let us scheme.

Did you bring the mallet?

Good. Now remember, you hit him on the head with the mallet,

and I'll put him in the sack. Is that clear?

Not now.

He isn't even here yet.

Now, we'll wait until they...

Get ready. Get ready!

Shh. Here they come.

I wonder if he'll try to kiss her.

Look, Rodrigo, a gypsy camp.

Gypsies, eh?

I've heard it said that gypsies buy babies.

I wonder if they'd be interested

in purchasing this fine, strapping youth.

Rodrigo, I have an idea.

Why don't we sell Tom to the gypsies,

and that way, collect for him twice, understand?

Listen, Barnaby is paying us to get rid of Tom.

But if, instead of throwing Tom into the sea,

we sell him to the gypsies, we'll be paid for him again.

Once by Barnaby and once by the gypsies.

Can't you see that?


♪ Now, this young man could fetch a fancy price ♪

♪ why throw him in the sea? ♪

♪ we'll trick old Barnaby ♪

♪ and we'll find ourselves collecting twice ♪

♪ We won't be happy till we get it ♪

♪ no, we won't be happy till we get it ♪

♪ yes, we won't be happy till we get it ♪

♪ no, we won't be happy till we get it ♪

Mother Goose, will Tom admire me in this gown?

Land sakes, child, he'll just adore you.

I think it's beau-tiful!

What if it rains?

But it's a bright, sunny day!

Suppose Tom forgets the ring.

Oh, now Mary, don't be funny.

Well, it could happen, you know.

A friend of mine was get... Hush, Sylvester.

I hadn't finished.


Hand me a pin, Sylvester.

Thank you.

Now, let's see.

There's something borrowed, something blue.


Good day, friends.

And here's something old and ugly, too.

Ah, what a charming bride.

The sweetest and the loveliest I have ever seen.

Why, that oily... Hush, Sylvester.

Thank you, Mr. Barnaby.

May I offer you my best wishes

for your future happiness and joy?

You miserable, miserly... Sylvester, no.

For lunch, I had roast goose!


That's the way we lost mother.

Would you please excuse us?

We have so much to do.

Ah, yes, of course.

The preparations for the wedding, and... Oh, what's that?

Come on!

Some small excitement.

This is Mary's cottage, sir.

Oh, thank you, my dear fellow.

Rodrigo, take care of this lad.

No, no, don't hit him, tip him.

Oh, thank you.

My word, 2 shipwrecked sailors.


Whatever are they doing here?

I... I can't imagine.

Now remember, we are sup...

My friend and I would like to know,

are you Miss Mary quite contrary?

Yes, sir, I am she.

Well, uh...

We don't know how to tell you this, Miss Mary.

No, we don't know how to tell you this at all.

We were 20 leagues at sea.

It was calm as it could be, when out of the north,

there came a sudden squall.

He was standing at the wheel, he was, Miss Mary,

and across the deck, the mighty ocean roared.

Then the mizzen broke and fell, and we heard the fellow yell

as it bashed him down and swept him overboard.

♪ Slowly, slowly ♪

♪ he sank into the sea ♪

♪ though we tried to save him ♪

♪ he sank into the sea ♪

but who, sir?

Who sank?

Oh, it was Tom, ma'am.

Tom sank.

Tom sank?

Tom sank?

Who's Tom sank?

What preposterous rumor are you spreading, sailor?

Go on your way!

Unless... You have some evidence?

Some proof of what you say?

Oh, yes, sir.

What proof do you have?

We are bringing you his personal belongings,

and in his hat we found this soggy note.

Though the salty ocean spray somehow washed the words away,

I'll see if I can't decipher what he wrote.

"Darling Mary", he begins, or is that "dearest"?

Yes, that's the term he uses, we agree.

Now, the boy goes on to tell

how he hopes this finds you well.

It's too bad he slowly sank into the sea.

♪ Slowly, slowly ♪

♪ he sank into the sea ♪

♪ with no life preserver ♪

♪ he sank into the sea ♪

but this was to be our wedding day.

Why would Tom be at sea?

Does this letter offer some explanation?

I presume he's written more.

Oh, yes, sir.

"I am poor", the letter reads, "and can't support you,

"and it's best I sail away "and set you free.

"Noble lady that you are, "you'd be better off by far,

if you were to marry wealthy Barnaby."

We advise you to forget him now, Miss Mary.

Our condolences to you, we do extend.

But we'll blame you not, my dear,

if you care to shed a tear,

for the way he met his most untimely end.

how about that?

Oh, my poor, brave Tom.

Sacrificing his life for my welfare.


Oh, poor Mary.

Come, children, in the house.

There's something fishy about this!

Hush, Sylvester.

Well, I wouldn't trust either one of them.

The fat one or the idiot.

Well done, boys.

Now for item 3.

Item 3, steal the sheep.

On your way.

Gentle Mary, so grief-stricken and remorseful.

Oh, to see you thus is more than I can bear.

Erase your sorrow now.

Be resourceful for yourself

and those poor children in your care.

Take advantage, my dear, of my infatuation!

May I point out you are deeply in my debt?

I could seize your home through legal confiscation!

Oh, I do hope you don't take that as a threat.

Feast your eyes upon my mansion, tall and stately,

and imagine it a castle, dear, in Spain.

Come, my love.

For I'd admire it greatly

that you be my queen and live in my domain!

No, thank you, Mr. Barnaby.

I don't want your castle.

I'd never marry just for wealth alone.

And even though Tom may be gone, his memory I'll keep.

I'm sure that we can carry on with the income from our sheep.

Your sheep?

Yes, of course.

Our sheep.

My sheep! My sheep!

Our sheep!

Bo-peep, what's the matter, darling?

Our sheep, they're lost.

Oh, no. They can't be lost.

Yes, I've searched everywhere.

What is it, Bobby?

I know where the sheep are.

You do?

Yes. I followed their tracks, and you know where they led to?


To The Forest Of No Return.

The Forest Of No Return?

The Forest Of No Return?


Well, thank you anyway, Bobby.

I think it's a slick trick, a rotten plot!

Miss Mary.

Yes, Mr. Barnaby?

Remember my offer.

I'll be awaiting your decision... My dear.


Now she'll have to reconsider... Yes, even this very night.

Well done, gentlemen.

Not now!

Tomorrow, when the swelling goes down.

Be in my attic when the bank opens.

Don't worry about anything.

Just try to get some sleep.

Everything's going to be all right.

Come on. Get into bed now.

What's the matter, darling?

I'm so sorry I lost the sheep, and I know it's my fault.

Don't worry about the sheep.

They'll find their way home.

You'll see. Come on... Get under the covers.

Good night, children.

Good night, Mary.

I don't mind a double-cross and I don't mind a triple-cross,

Oh, we can't leave anyway. We're captured.

not yet, boys.

The odds will be better when they're sleeping.

We will wait till nightfall.

Come... let us lurk.

Come on, come on! Hurry up!

Mr. Toy Maker, Mr. Toy Maker, open the door!

Open the door! Please!

Kids, kids.

They must be closed.

Yes, look.

"Closed for alterations."

What's over here?

Come on!

Gee, I wonder what's inside.

Hmm. Looks like Toyland has been deserted.

Mr. Toy Maker.

It came from over there.

Oh, Mr. Toy Maker, it's all ready, sir.

For goodness sake, Grumio, you know I'm busy!

But there's something I...

Listen, I'm working on a new invention.

This is fantastic.

What... what is it?

What is it?

I'll tell you what it is.

What is the first thing a boy does when he gets a new toy?

Well, I... I'll tell ya.

He takes it apart to see how it works.

But with my invention, he doesn't have to do that.

The toy is already broken.

I made that up myself, you know, in the other room there.

Mr. Toy Maker... Oh, was there something you wanted?

Yes, there's something I want to show you, sir.

Please, please come with me. Please.

This is my new invention.

This is your invention?

Yes, sir.

How do you like it, sir?

Oh, fine, fine. It's awful nice.

Very nice. You do very good work, Grumio.

Very good. Beautiful.

Oh, just a minute, sir.

Don't you want to see how it works?

How what works?

My invention!

This does something?

Oh, yes, sir. It certainly does!

It makes toys.

It does?

This is my new toy making machine.

You'll never ever need these hand tools again, sir.

This is the latest concept in automation!

Here, let me explain.

Let's say we wanna make a doll.


Now, first we have to diagram the problem

for the machine on the occiligraph, you understand?

Just make a doll. That's all.

Make a doll. Yes, sir.

Now we select the ingredients.

Uh... blue eyes, blonde hair, smiling lips.

Oh, and suppose you want to make it a girl doll...

Um... sugar... and spice... Everything nice.

One doll, demonstration purposes at slow speed.

And now, automation takes over!

Is that so?


Oh, that's wonderful!

This is astonishing!

Simply astonishing!

A real doll!

Grumio, this is amazing!

Oh... thank you, sir.

Can this machine make a toy boat, too?

Toy boat coming up, sir.

Now I'll make a boat.

Uh... hull, decks, smoke stacks, lifeboats...

And we'll need, uh... There's a mast and a poop deck...

Stop mumbling.

Make the boat. Make the boat.

We'll run this one at, uh... medium speed,

and once more, automation reigns supreme!

This is overwhelming!

A doll! A boat!

Oh, my machine can make anything, sir!

Grumio... You are a genius.

Thank you, sir.

And now, to work.

And now, as we have a deadline to meet,

I will start the machine at full production.

Uh, just a moment, Grumio.

You'll start the machine?

Oh, no, you won't.

I'm the head toy maker here.

I'll start the machine in full production.

You're just my assistant.

Will you please step aside?

If I need any help, I'll call you.

Here. Hold these, please.

If I want you, I'll call you, Grumio,

or I'll call you assistant.

It depends entirely on the mood I'm in.

Now, let me see. We need some wagons,

we need marbles, we need dolls.

We could use some roller skates.

Children love roller skates, you know.

Some parcheesi sets... I think you're overloading it, sir.

I think about 4 million each to start with.

4 million?!

And I think we'll start at super speed!

Pick that up, assistant.

Hoo hoo hoo!

Oh, that's just remarkable!

Ho ho ho, hoo hoo! My!

Oh, my!

What's this thing here?

No, Mr. Toy Maker, please, get out of there, sir, please!

Really remarkable.

You're making it very difficult, sir.

Please don't touch anything else!

Oh! This is wonderful!

Hoo hoo hoo! Hoo hoo... Stop that, Grumio!

It's real!

Oh! Hoo hoo hoo!

Oh, Grumio! This one's broken!

Get a little glue.

Hurry up! Oh...

There's something wrong, Grumio!


Do something fast!

There's something wrong here, Grumio.


I think something's wrong!

Stop that thing! Grumio!

Grumio, come here!

Grumio, look out!

Look out, Grumio!

Look ooooout!

You know something?

I think we should go to lunch.

This is catastrophic!

My goodness!

I'm ruined!

Absolutely ruined!





Oh, there you are. You are alone responsible for everything...

Just you and you alone!

Did you say that your invention

was to make toys or to make noise?

Go! Get outta here!

Go on! Go to your room

and invent something to destroy yourself!

This is horrible!

I'll never make that Christmas deadline now.

My, my, this is... This is terrible!

Just awful.

I, uh, I beg your pardon, sir.

Why, who are you?

Well, my name's Tom Piper, and... What are you doing here?

We came to see you.

Who are you?

She's my sister.

Well, you shouldn't be here!

Don't you know that it isn't right

for children to see these toys until Christmas day?

These... we... well, we... We had a lot of toys around here.

But you can see... Well...

This is the only toy in the whole factory that isn't broken.

We're really very sorry, Mr. Toy Maker.

Yeah, thank you.

But what are you doing here?

We're arrested!

The trees said for us to report to you.

Well, naturally, you have to report to me.

I'm not only the head toy maker, I'm also the Mayor of Toyland

and the chief of police.

We noticed you have quite a problem, sir.

Yes. Quite a problem. Yes.

Well, is there anything we can do to help?

Half-past October.

The deadline near.

The children will have no Merry Christmas.

Mr. Toy Maker, we're strong, and we're willing to work.

I think we'd make a fine assembly line.

And we'd work day and night, wouldn't we, children?

Yes! Yes, sure!

Please, please let us help you.

You wanna work?

Nobody wants to work these days.

It's not automation, sir, but we've got our hands to use.

Well... Maybe I could try it. Ha.

What have I got to lose?

All right, folks. I'll put you to work.

I've been such a dope.

As long as there are people, we should never give up hope!

Yay! Yay!

First we have to clean up that assembly room.

Come on. We haven't got a moment to lose.

My goodness! You're all so industrious!

You know something?

I think we're gonna make the deadline after all...

Thanks to you children.

Good night.

Good night, Mr. Toy Maker!

Come on, kids. Wash up now.

Aw! I'm not tired!

Up, up, up.

Night is about to fall.

5, 4, 3, 2, 1.


Let us pussyfoot.


Come on, now. Into bed.

I like making toys.

You can make them, but you mustn't keep them.

Aw... Good night.

Good night, children.

Good night, Mary.

quickly, now's our chance.

I got it! I got it! I got it!

Mr. Toymaker! Where's Mr. Toymaker?!

He's in his room asleep.

I've got to show him something.

I've got to show him my new invention!

Mr. Toymaker, Mr. Toymaker, please, wake up, sir.

Don't shoot me! Don't shoot me!

Just a minute, sir. Please, wake up.

This is my new invention.


My new invention.

This is another one of your inventions?

Yes. Shoot me.

Oh, please, sir. Wait a minute.

This is my... this is a scientific triumph.

It's a biochemical breakthrough.

Sir, please, my new formula for toy-making

is even better than automation!

It's better? Yes.

Good night.

Oh, please, sir, please, please.

Let me demonstrate this. This really works.

Get back, get back. Please, get back.

This is very, very dangerous.

Watch closely, sir.

Big chair...

Toy chair.

Poof. Just like that?

Just like that.

A big table...

Toy table.

This is provocative! Give me that thing.

Oh, careful, sir. This is a very dangerous compound.

2 molecular discharges will result in complete obliteration.


Very interesting.

Oh, I see.

Poof, but not poof poof.

That's correct.

Let me poof that thing.

Oh, no, sir, no, no, you mustn't, sir.

One thing you must and should remember:

I am the head Toymaker.

You're just my assistant.

Mr. Toymaker, maybe you shouldn't.

That's a very dangerous... Have you seen our new invention?

Don't aim it at them, sir.

Oh, wait'll you see it make toys.

It makes wonderful... But it's very dangerous.

You'll have to stand back, please. Stand back there.

Stand back a little.

Big desk...

Toy desk.

Now I'm gonna show you... Oh, please, don't point that, sir.

Well, wait till you see what I'm gonna do now.

Big bed...

Toy bed.


This is simply wonderful!

Now I can make thousands of toys at one time.

Grumio, you are a genius.


Mr. Toymaker... Listen to me, Tommy.

Isn't this a wonderful way to make toys?

Yes, sir, it is.

It's a wonderful invention, sir, but...

Where are you going to get the big things

to reduce to small things?

Where are we gonna get the big things

to reduce to small things?

Good question, sir.

I think so.

Well, I think we could always, uh...

I don't know.

You are a nutwit.

You and your stupid inventions.

Go! Go to your room!


Silly invention.

I knew it wouldn't be any good the moment I saw it.

Whoever called you a genius?

Poof on this poof gun!

I think I can use this poof gun.

You and your nutty ideas.

Waking me up in the middle of the night

when all I wanted was a little sleep.

My goodness.

This is only good if my foot's asleep.

What happened here?

I'll show you what happened.

Must be me.

That grumio's got me so confused.

It's terrible.

I need sleep so much.

My goodness. Grumio.

Who are you?!

Tom! Mary!

Who are you?!

Get out of here!

Come, little one.

Do you realize that gun has reduced a human being?

Tom! Mary!

Get out of here!

What's going on here?! Put me down!

Let me down, you monster, you ogre!

There, there, little fellow.

No harm will befall you.

Fact is, I'm going to need you.

I want to go to sleep!

What's going on here? Let me down!

Put me down, you monster, you ogre!

I just want to go to sleep!

Ah, yes.

There, little fella.

There's a safe place to keep you till I need you.

This gun will make our job much easier.

Now for our next victim... Tom.

Follow me, boys.

Please, please, don't let him do that to Tom.


I beg your pardon?

After talking things over, we have decided

not to take part in your diabolical plan.

Consider us no longer in cahoots.

Furthermore, we are going to expose you to everybody.

Won't you reconsider?

Not a chance.


Now, there's no use in talking about it.

We want nothing more to do with...

Ohh, Mr. Barnaby! Please, Mr. Barnaby!

You wouldn't shoot us, would you?

Oh, Mr. Barnaby! Please, sir!


Please, please, go away, Mr. Barnaby!

Go away!

Please, leave us alone!

Good evening.

Mr. Barnaby.

What are you doing here?

I've come for you, my dear.

How dare you come into my room?

Tom! Tom!

No need to scream.

Your little Tom is quite close-by,

and I do mean your very little Tom.

Oh, no.


I will now at last have your hand in marriage.

Never. Never!


May I remind you that just a little overdose of this...

Stop, stop!

I'll do anything you say.

Of course you will.

Come, my dear.

Now, if you folks are ready.

Are you ready, dear?

Are the witnesses ready?

And the best man?

Now, by the power vested in you as the Mayor of Toyland,

proceed with the marriage ceremony.

We are gathered here to witness this young lady

making her first step toward unhappiness.

She's gonna marry you.


I was just trying to liven things up with a little humor.

Never mind the humor. Perform the ceremony.

We are gathered here to unite this man

with this poor, unfortunate girl n marriage.

Do you, Barnaby, take Mary to be your wedded wife,

to keep her in sickness, in adversity, in poverty, in tragedy,

in disaster... What are you doing?

Well, I was just trying to talk you out of it.

I'm warning you.

Do you, Barnaby, take Mary to be your wedded wife?

I do.

Are you sure you don't want to think this over?

I do not!

No, I can see that you don't.

Now, do you, uh, uh...

Do you, Mary, take this man to be your wedded husband?

I do.

That's funny, I take him to be your grandfather.

Would you stop this infernal stalling?

On with it! On with it!

Oh, for heaven's sake. Such a dreadful temper.

I'm glad I'm not marrying you.

Oh, I am marrying you, but I'm marrying you to her.

Now, where was I?

will you hurry up?

I want to get married.

All right, all right.

Now, uh, let me see now.

Yes, there it is.

Will you please tell me what the trouble is now?!

Oh, all right. Just a minute.

It won't be a minute.

Uh, we are gathered here...

Come on!

Drummers, forward!

Now, let me see... Where was I?

You were right here!

Oh, oh, heh, yes. Thank you.

Thank you very much. Thank you.

What's that?

They're playing the wrong music.

Well, get on with it anyway.

On with it!

All right.

Forward march!

Eyes right!

Where are my glasses?

They are on your head!

Oh, so they are.

Thank you. Thank you very much.

And let's have no more of these delays.

Now take her hand.

Now comes the good part.

If there is anyone... Any man,

or any woman, for that matter...

Who has good reason why this marriage

should not take place,

let him... or her if, you know... Whichever it is,

let them speak or... Stop!

Barnaby, you scoundrel, unhand that girl!

Look. Look who's run away to become a toy soldier.

Take cover, Mary.




All right!




Give 'em a broadside!




Sound the charge!


Infantry, attack!

Give 'im a broadside!


Oh, my toys!

My toys!

Now for the toy general.

Watch out, Tom!



Bombs away!

That's enough of this horseplay.

Tom, look out!

This is better.

Mr. Barnaby!

Stop him!

Don't let him get away!


Come on, Barnaby. Fight like a man.

Look out, Tom!


I've got it! Oh, I've got it!

Mr. Toymaker!

Here I am.

Grumio, I'm down here!

Well, sir, it appears that you need a shot

of my new invention, my restoring formula.


Yes, sir?

You are a genius.

Oh, thank you, sir.

Hey, Grumio!

How about us?

Take care of my friends.

My friend and I would like to thank you.

Grumio, please, help Tom.

Anything you say, Mary. Where is he?

Here I am.

You can't seem to get it through your thick skull that I...

Am the head toymaker, and you are just my assistant.

Now you got it. Heh heh.

Step aside.

Allow me.

Darling, you were so brave.

I'm so proud of you.

What's going on?

What's all the noise?

Oh, you've been playing with the toys.

That's right, children.

We've been playing with the toys.

That's right.

We were just playing with the toys.
