    "Babes In Toyland" Costume Dress. This yellow-and-green gown was worn by Annette Funicello in the 1961 family film -- the first live-action musical produced by Walt Disney Studios. Funicello played Mary Quite Contrary, whose pending marriage to Tom the Piper's Son is jeopardized by the evil miser Barnaby (played by Ray Bolger, the Scarecrow in the "Wizard of Oz"). Designed by Bill Thomas, whose work on the film earned him an Oscar nomination for Best Costume Design for a color feature, the dress is in very good condition with some mild discoloration to the hem and sleeves, mild tearing to the sleeves, and a few mild stains to the lower apron-front. All-in-all, an attractive piece from a great Hollywood era.
