i discovered this cartoon in a bin of "bargain vhs tapes".having kids, we buy a lot of cartoons.

i would call this a lost classic.even though the copy i have has poor sound and choppy editing(it runs exactly 1 hour,and in several places you get the impression there's a scene missing).but no matter. as a whole its like a feature-length "SILLY SYMPHONY".hardly similar to "jack and the beanstalk" as the title would imply.lots of musical interludes with dancing worms,musical grasshoppers, and an educational limerick about beehives.

not as exciting as todays fast-paced animated features, but not without its own charms.
