Walt Disney's Animated Features film Fun and Fancy Free opened in September 1947. It was an unusual kind of "package feature," combining two featurette-length stories, Bongo and Mickey and the Beanstalk, in a single motion picture. The two stories were elaborately mounted within a third framing story featuring Jiminy Cricket, and the whole package was further enhanced by the talents of tow popular performers: Edgar Bergen and Dinah Shore.
Moviegoers who enjoyed this diverting feature were unaware that its various components had been in development for the better part of the decade. Now, for the first time, this Monograph chronicles the full, fascinating history of the making of Fun and Fancy Free. Richly illustrated with over 125 sketches, paintings, and photos, many never previously published , here is the hidden story behind a delightful and underappreciated Disney gem.
