Story development for "Mickey and the Beanstalk" started in May, 1940, but the film project was delayed for several years. See more »
During the "Mickey and the Beanstalk" feature, the house breaks apart as the beanstalk grows (at around 53 minutes) and the vines carry Mickey, Donald and Goofy upwards as they sleep. But a minute later, a shot of the intact house can be seen being carried into the clouds by the beanstalk again. See more »

Two Great Featurettes combined as a movie release!
Dinah Shore narrates and sings her way through a charming tale about a trained bear (Bongo) who runs away from the circus and finds true love with a girl bear in the forest. Here, there is an attempt to join it with the other short which is a classic re-telling of "Mickey (Mouse) and the Beanstalk". (As Disney often does, the giant resembles the one from an earlier Mickey 8minute cartoon called "The Brave Little Tailor". ) Over the years, this classic has been been narrated by many personalities, but Edgar Bergen does it the best, in the original version, shown here.
