FUN AND FANCY FREE (1947)

This Disney film is comprised of two short films. The first being “Bongo”. A story about a circus bear that escapes,┬áto make his dream of living in the wilderness a reality. He struggles with the change, but soon finds love and his place in the woods. Neither one of us had seen or at least remembered seeing this short. And we are fine with that fact. It felt long and we got bored. Also, we don’t know why bears have to totally smack each other in the face when they love each other? What is that about? The second short is “Jack and the Beanstalk” starring Mickey, Donald, and Goofy. This is a fun short and we like it, but the intro to the cartoon is weird. It starts with this man and his ventriloquist dummies with one little girl at a party. I find it weird that the only humans at this party are an adult man and a little girl. I get that the dummies are supposed to be real, but just add at least one other child. Or just show the short and get rid of that boring, awkward scene altogether. I recommend this movie purely for the “Jack and the Beanstalk” short. That is a classic that all need to see at least once.
