Parade of the Wooden Soldiers is a 1933 Fleischer Studios animated short film starring Betty Boop. It is now public domain.
The instrumental title theme (also known as "Parade of the Tin Soldiers") was composed by Leon Jessel, and is popular as Christmas music.
A large factory complex struggles to produce a single package, which is rushed to a toy store. The box opens, and out steps a Betty Boop doll. The other toys come to life, parade around to the music of Parade of the Wooden Soldiers and crown her their queen. But a large stuffed toy of King Kong begins breaking things up. Eventually, the big ape is defeated, and the (somewhat damaged) toys resume their parade.

There's a word for it. I've felt it almost all my life, right up there with having a sense of no belonging.

Parade of the Wooden Soldiers
(22 Jan 1871 – 04 Jan
The toy shop
door is locked up tight
And ev'rything is quiet for the night.
When suddenly the clock strikes twelve
The fun's begun.
The dolls are in their best array,
There's going to be a wonderful parade.
" Hark to the drum, oh, here they come,"
Hear them all cheering
Now they are nearing
There's the captain stiff as starch
Music is crashing
As the wooden soldiers march
At each pretty little maid
Here they come!
Here they come!
Here they come!
Here they come!
Wooden soldiers on parade.
