G
Fun and Fancy Free is a Walt Disney animated motion picture that was produced in 1947. This film is comprised of two small exhibitions. After a small chat and introduction with Jiminy Cricket (Cliff Edwards), the film moves onto a unique take on the classic fable, "Jack and the Bean Stalk." This show features the lovable characters Micky Mouse (Walt Disney), Donald Duck (Clarence Nash) and Goofy. They must go head-to-head against Willie the Giant (Billy Gilbert) in this amusing rendition of this fairy tale. The other featurette focuses on Bongo, as he makes the transition from a circus attraction to a independent life out in the real world. Fun and Fancy Free also blends live action cinematography with animation, as is sometimes the case in many of Disney's earlier film endeavors. Ventriloquist Edgar Bergen performs onstage in a small exposition and puppet show, much to the delight of the other characters.

  • A film of shorts that is pretty entertaining for what it is

    7.5
    "Fun & Fancy Free" is the fourth of these package films and is definitely the best of them thus far. But unlike the others, this one only has two shorts. "Pongo the Bear", which is pretty entertaining. And "Mickey and the Beanstalk", which is just great and it's awesome to see Mickey, Donald, and Goofy together in the same short. The animation is fine and it's aged fairly well over years. All in all, "Fun & Fancy Free" is a pretty fun feature that most old-timer Disney fans would enjoy seeing.moreless
