The Christmas song Toyland was composed by Victor Herbert for the 1903 production of the operetta Babes in Toyland, which premiered at the Grand Opera House in Chicago. Herbert collaborated with lyricist Glen MacDonough on the show, which featured several popular hits, including March of the Toys. The story of Babes in Toyland has been adapted to movies several times, most notably by Laurel and Hardy in 1934, and by Walt Disney in 1961. An animated version of Babes in Toyland was produced in 1997 by Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer.
