While the film is often credited as the last time Walt Disney voiced Mickey Mouse, this is inaccurate. It was indeed the last film to feature Disney's voice, as he recorded much of Mickey's dialogue in the spring and summer of 1941. But later, Disney recorded some lines as Mickey Mouse for the television show The Mickey Mouse Club (1955). 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 »
Just look at that miserable creature. Doggedly struggling to maintain life. A gaunt, lean bag of bones and feathers. Truly a picture of despair. But Donald doesn't whimper. Donald doesn't give up.
Shut up! I can't stand it!

Charlie McCarthy, Mortimer Snerd, Mickey Mouse, Jiminy Cricket, and Donald Duck are billed as if they were actors, when they are fictional characters. See more »
This is a good combination of two animated stories/shorts: Bongo and Micky and the Beanstalk. while watching a mixture of stories and a mixture of animation and live action was a little awkward, Jiminy Cricket held it together. This film's latest release on video gives everyone the opportunity to see this tiny treasure for the first time. While, it doesn't rank up with the Best of Disney's animation, it is still worth seeing, if nothing else for Walt Disney's last film as the voice of Mickey.
