Jack and the Beanstalk is my favorite TV Special
18 June 2015 | by (Rocklin, California) – See all my reviews

I like Jack and Gene Kelly in the TV Special from the TV Special and they're dancing like in the jazz and vaudeville show. The animated by Hanna-Barbera Productions. I like Jack and Jeremy for the Giantland to see the castle of the Giant. Gene Kelly is dancing with the Princess and the Woggle Birds. Jack is marching and dancing with the mice for a fight. The Giant has the cat to searching for Jack and found the hole with a mouse trap for a mice. In fact, I need the DVD released in 2016 with Blu-ray and DVD. I'm sure Gene Kelly is the good TV Special with Hanna-Barbera Productions for 'Jack and the Beanstalk' starring Gene Kelly and directing himself. I wish you can do it for the Blu-ray and DVD in 2016.
