  • Allusions

    • The first short combines elements of two childhood stories. Jack and Jill were characters in a nursery rhyme about children fetching water from a well. Jack and the Beanstalk is a fairy tale about a boy who trades a cow for magic beans that grow into a giant beanstalk. Jack and Jill here of course, are played by Pugsley and Wednesday. Other fairy tale characters featured in the first short are Tom Thumb (played by Thing), Rumplestilsken (Uncle Fester), and Sleeping Beauty (Granny).
