A delightful anime version of the classic story
18 January 2008 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I watched this 1974 anime film on YouTube, and after watching it, I found this film AND the Disney short "Mickey and The Beanstalk" are the best adaptations of the well-love fairy tale of the magic beanstalk that reaches up to the sky. As I said I maybe 22 years old, but I still love fairy stories.

I love the song that played in the background, when Jack, his dog Crosby and the mice (that were really the castle servants turned into mice by Hecuba) escape to the treasure volt. I think the mice are so ubber cute, and have tracings of the mice from Disney's Cinderella; I think. I also love the musical sequence for the Princess's song "No One's Happier Than I." You know what I think? I think Princess Margaret and Princess Rosa from Puss in Boots would fit the description of Non-Disney Princesses would you? Overall I love this movie.
