Okay, I have been reading the other reviews on this movie, and they all say things like "went on for too long"..."Way overhyped"...and things like that. I beg to differ. The two movies in this wonderful DVD, Bongo and Mickey and the Beanstalk, are two family classics. As a child, I watched these two movies (on VHS, of course) over and over and over again. Willy the Giant characterizes my childhood in three words..."Potroast! Chocolate potroast!" And now, I know for a fact that my two little brothers have memorized the whole movie of Mickey and the Beanstalk. I don't want to ramble on forever, but I just want to say that these two are the best movies that I have ever seen, and I have seen a lot of movies.

Actually, unknown might be a better word to use. This movie is rollicking fun from beginning to end, and features some wonderful animated moments. This is the original home of the featurettes "Mickey and the Beanstalk" and "Bongo", which are presented in their entirety. If you're looking for something a little different... an alternative to the animated Broadway musical... this is it. Highly recommended.

If like a lot of people you first saw "Mickey & the Beanstalk" not in theaters but on television (usually preceding a feature, like "Dumbo") you are in for a bit of a surprise.
This DVD contains the theatrical version, where the animation is interspersed with live-action footage of people at a party, who are "telling" the story. This also means the wonderfully soothing TV-version narration (provided by Sterling Halloway, also voice of Pooh) is gone. The end result is that the cartoon drags on unnecessarily as the action is constantly interrupted by the live-action segments. Additionally, the live actors tend to get a bit chatty with their narration, and some of the humor they try to inject hasn't aged well. With the capacity of the DVD medium, why couldn't the TV version be tacked on as an extra?
Still worth owning (the beautiful animation and music can't be derailed even by the mediocre live action footage)--but be warned.

I am still watching the laserdisc version of this film, so I cannot comment on the quality of the "restored" DVD. I intend to up-date to DVD shortly, if the DVD includes the short, historical "making of" that is on the laserdisc. It is a short, but fascinating look at the Disney Studios in 1947 and contains some brief, but previously unseen footage of Walt, himself, from that time. I would agree with the reviewers who say that the weakest part of the film is the Bongo segment. However, some of your writers need to do their homework before making the statement that the version of Mickey and the Beanstalk presented is an edited version with Edgar Bergen added as narrators. Indeed, this is the original version! It was the various incarnations on Disney's Wonderful World of Color that were re-edited, some with Professor Ludwick von Drake replacing the original Bergen/McCarthy narration. How horrible was that??

This movie release clasic, comes with two special segments as part of a complete movie. Mickey and the Beanstalk, were Walt Disney lended for the last time the voice of Mickey, and appears with his budies, Goofy and Donald. Everyone will love it, all do you may allready saw it. The second story is Bongo, witch I specialy have a lot of memories of my childhood. With some more shorts and music it mackes a lovable great movie for all.

I absolutely love this version of 'Mickey and the Beanstalk'. The interjection of the live action in this is what makes it so absolutely wonderful. I was so pleasantly surprised and ecstatic to see the little skits intertwined with the story because that's what gives it that nostalgic Disney magic! I had seen the version with Ludwig Von Drake and didn't even know this version existed until I read about it. This one is much more magical. I also love Charlie McCarthy, Mortimer Snerd and Luana Patten in this. It reminds me of the way 'Pecos Bill' is done (another favorite Disney short). This will now be one of my favorite Disney shorts. Oh, and I also love how Jiminy Cricket is lying there on the piece of chocolate cake! Live action and animation together just can't be beat.

Walt Disney made a few films like this one, where it's a feature length film with a series of short stories. He did this so he could raise money to make his bigger films like Cinderella or Peter Pan. That doesn't mean that Fun and Fancy Free isn't a good movie in it's own right. In fact, it's an outstanding little movie that everyone should enjoy watching.

The First short in the movie is the story of Bongo, a circus bear. Unless you are steeped in Disney knowledge, chances are you've never heard of this little bear, but it's very well animated and narrated.

The second short is Mickey and the Beanstalk. This has all the stars like Mickey, Goofy, and Donald. The story is told by Edgar Bergen, something Disney would do again later with Roy Rogers introducing Pecos Bill in Melody Time.

Another interesting note about this short is that Walt Disney himself was the voice of Mickey Mouse. He had been the voice many times before, but this would be the last time he would be the voice of the Mouse. That alone makes it noteworthy.

Overall it's a Disney Gold! watch it and relax!
