Cuckoo Dancing Week
Honoring the memory of the comedy team of Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy. So let the sweet, sweet sounds of "The Dancing Cuckoos" (their theme song) be heard far and wide this week!

And of course any celebration of “Stan and Ollie” just wouldn’t be complete without a mention of their film Babes in Toyland. What would my childhood’s Thanksgiving Day celebrations have been without the perennial viewing of Babes in Toyland in all its black and white TV glory…

And to brighten up my day (and hopefully yours) I found this trailer for the movie Babes in Toyland ! Sweeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeet! View the video after the jump.
