I hereby claim Disney’s first live action feature, a piece of filmmaking I wouldn’t wish on my worst enemy, as an Oregon film, based on George Bruns’ involvement.

Babes In Toyland began life as an idea for an expanded Mickey Mouse Club episode. The idea was to update the 1902 Victor Herbert operetta, with Mouseketeer Annette Funicello in the leading role.

Oregon musician and composer George Bruns received Oscar nominations for both Sleeping Beauty and Babes In Toyland. For the first he adapted Tchaikovsky, for the second Victor Herbert.
