Odd I know to be celebrating Christmas in August, but these classic costumes from the 1961 Disney festive musical Babes in Toyland were photographed recently on display at the Treasures of the Walt Disney Archives.

This was the second movie version based on Victor Berbert's popular 1903 operetta (the first by Laurel & Hardy in 1934), but the first film to be produced in Technicolor.
