Walt Disney's Fairytale Mess
20 October 2014 | by (Amsterdam) – See all my reviews

This is the Last of 7 fairytale retelling Walt Disney had done with the Laugh-O-Gram Studio before he moves on to another Laugh-O-Gram hybrid animation and the lost "Lafflets" shorts.

While the other 6 aren't any good at all, this particular short makes a complete mess of the whole 6 minutes you're watching.

Half-way through the short you find out Jack is on a boat going to the island to impress Susie to fall in love with her, when you then find out she's actually kidnapped and Jack needs to rescue her.

You get so many questions as why she is there that you become distracted for a short bit, not that it really matters, the chase scene with the giants is just overly long, especially the hole part reminded me of the Family Guy jokes where they stretch out those bits to unfunny ends.

When the Giants are defeated you all find out (maybe it shouldn't be a surprise i don't know) that he was just imagining it, and Susie leaves for somebody else.

It makes absolutely no sense, if you watch "Puss in Boots" or "Cinderella" it just has an overall line that you can follow and this just doesn't add up.

One small thing i did like is the diversity in animated characters this short has to offer, from different animals to different sized underwater life, that's a very nice plus, especially in 1922!
