The movie features three animated segments with live action wraparound story. In the sexless live action part, Mother Goose, played by a man in drag, is on trial for obscenity because she wants to tell the real suppressed versions of her tales. Young Jack is a doofy horn dog kid who sells his cow to a pervy dwarf for sex with a hot gypsy woman and some beans. Once the beanstalk grows sky high, Jack climbs it and ends up inside the Giant's wife, literally. Even his horny pet frog gets in on the action when it sees a busty peasant girl washing up at the lake. In the second segment, Prince Charming has a dreamlike tryst with secretive virginal Cinderella one night and goes on a search to find this mysterious virgin by checking the naughty parts of every women in his kingdom along the way.

The late Hal Smith (known most famously as Otis from the "the Andy Griffith Show") stars as Mother Goose in this extremely adult rated trio of animated tales. Goose is on trial for obscenities as she recounts X-rated versions of Jack & the Beanstalk, Cinderella, and Red Riding Hood. The first segment, Jack, is the most true to the original story and also the most humorous. The other two are plain awful, especially Cinderella which isn't just unfunny, but very boring to boot. Red Riding Hood i only slightly better even though it ha absolutely nothing in common with the original story. All in all this is much more miss than hit and as such I can't, in good conscience recommend it.

My Grade: D

DVD Extras: 9 minute interview with producer William Siberkleit, & theatrical trailer
