Storyline

Mickey's orphans ask for a story; Mickey casts himself as Jack in Jack and the Beanstalk. He starts with the climbing of the beanstalk; after evading the giant a few times, he ends up inside a cheese sandwich, and then in the giant's mouth, where he ultimately grabs onto a pipe and gets pulled out by the giant. In the ensuing chase, Mickey launches a pepper bomb to slow the giant down, then outruns him coming down the beanstalk and sets the stalk on fire. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

Mickey vs. the giant
20 October 2012 | by TheLittleSongbirdSee all my reviews

Giantland is a truly excellent short. The giant's character design does occasionally lack consistency but that is the one quibble I have with Giantland. The animation aside from what I mentioned above is just great, I loved the crispness of the backgrounds and shadings and I thought Mickey was very well drawn. There are some standout sequences also, Mickey riding on the giant butterfly and the scene in the giant's mouth are delightful but the most spectacular bit of animation was with the giant's fall, what was done to make this sequence even more interesting was really clever. The music has the characterful energy you'd expect from a Disney short, while the gags are fun. The funniest part was Mickey inside the giant's mouth, the ways in which Mickey tries to avoid getting swallowed are very inventive and as I've said before it is also a great piece of animation. The story is largely familiar to us, but told to us in a fresh way in the form of a story-book structure, which I felt was appropriate for the telling of this story. Mickey is very likable, the giant suitably antagonistic and the Orphans were very cute and not as rascally or annoying as they could be. One might wish that there was also Goofy, Donald and Pluto on hand, but I think Mickey did wonderfully without them, despite them being perhaps stronger characters in the humour department. In conclusion, a great short. 9/10 Bethany Cox
