Episode Summary

Jack and the Beanstalk
Jack and the Beanstalk is a classic story that transcends ethnic boundaries. After all, foolishness knows no color. Happily Ever After demonstrates this with an African-American retelling of the fairy tale. When Jack comes across some magic beans, he unwittingly plants danger in the backyard. HBO originally presented this universal program featuring the voices of Robert Guillaume, Harry Belafonte, and Tone-Loc. Jack must use his wits and luck to escape the rhyming giant. When he does, he learns a valuable lesson about greed. Jack and the Beanstalk is recommended for ages four to nine.moreless
