Storyline

The Scarecrow trades Jasper a handful of beans for his harmonica. Jasper plants the beans and climbs up the resulting beanstalk and, at the top, finds a beautiful girl in a golden cage playing a golden harp. Jasper rescues her from the Scarecrow, brings her down the beanstalk, and spends the rest of his days dancing to the music his girlfriend plays on the harp.

JASPER AND THE BEANSTALK {Short} (George Pal, 1945) ***
4 February 2014 | by (Naxxar, Malta) – See all my reviews

This Oscar-nominated cartoon transposes the popular fairy-tale of "Jack And The Beanstalk", much dealt-with by the cinema, to a modern black setting. The result is a likable take on a familiar premise – with the simple titular figure apparently the 'star' of a whole series of "Puppetoon" shorts – yet the underlying realism seems to clash with the inherent fantasy at the core of the narrative! If anything, the proverbial bean-seller (himself unaware of their magical quality, he only intends scamming the protagonist!) – flanked by a talking, and similarly roguish, crow – is amusingly rendered in caricatured (i.e. slang- speaking) terms…while the singing girl-turned-harp of the original yarn here becomes the ideal vessel through whom the latest 'swing' favorite can be presented to the general public!
