Tiggerific Tuesday Trivia

Welcome back for more fantastic Disney Trivia!  Thanks again to Jodi from +Magical Mouse Schoolhouse, Heidi from +Heidi's Head, and +Mike Ellis for co-hosting!

Over the weekend on Netflix, I turned on "Mickey and the Beanstalk" unsure of what to expect - a classic Mickey cartoon, but I didn't know the specifics...

Did you know:

Mickey and the Beanstalk

was the last cartoon in which the voice of Mickey Mouse was Walt Disney himself!

Made (or first shown ) in 1947 as a part of Fun and Fancy Free, a package film (multiple segments put together to become a full length feature), Mickey and the Beanstalk is a fab 5 version of the classic Jack and the Beanstalk and is narrated by Paul Frees as Ludwig Von Drake.

    I love Fun & Fancy Free. My husband and I always "slap" each other with love. I am glad they are showing it on Netflix so a whole new generation can fall in love with original Mickey!

  6. We were just watching that the other day! (Netflix is big over here!) I didn't know that I was watching a piece of history though as it was Walt's last Mickey voice over.
