Here are the top moments from yet another Disney animated package film, Fun and Fancy Free from 1947. This film follows two stories.

The first is about Bongo, a circus bear who escapes captivity and finds love in the wild.

The second is Mickey and the Beanstalk, a classic fairy tale adaptation of Jack and the Beanstalk. It stars Mickey, Donald, and Goofy as they rescue a magic harp from the clutches of a giant.

2 Eat Until I Die (Mickey and The Beanstalk)

Following Donald's attempt to butcher the cow, Mickey is forced to sell it. While he's away, Goofy and Donald sing about all the things they plan to eat when Mickey returns with the money from selling the cow.

4 Say it with a Slap (Bongo)

Bongo ends up watching from afar as Lumpjaw and some other bears celebrate. They sing about how bears show affection with a slap. It's there that Bongo finally realizes what Lulubelle was trying to convey.
