Disney has finally released their collection of fairy tale shorts on DVD! Kidzworld takes a look at Mickey and the Beanstalk, The Three Little Pigs and The Prince and the Pauper.

Mickey and the Beanstalk

In this beautifully animated homage to Jack and the Beanstalk, Mickey, Goofy and Donald climb a ginormous beanstalk that leads to a magical land where everything is oversized—including a nasty giant named Willy! Mickey and co. want to rescue a beautiful golden harp but the giant keeps her pretty close to him so it’ll take all their wits to beat the giant and get back home with the precious harp. This DVD also features four other short films including The Brave Little Tailor, Gulliver Mickey, Thru the Mirror and Mr. Mouse Takes a Trip.

Three Little Pigs

You know this classic tale but you’ve got to see the way Disney does it! The three little pigs encounter some big bad trouble when the wolf comes a-knocking! This story teaches some important lessons about hard work and the importance of perserverence. The first two pigs build their homes quickly out of straw and sticks but they pay the price for their laziness when the wolf huffs and puffs and blows their houses down! The third pig built his home out of bricks and the construction took a lot more time and work than the other two flimsily-constructed shacks, but in the end it’s only the bricks that can protect the pigs from the hungry wolf outside. This DVD also features six other short films including The Big Bad Wolf, Three Little Wolves, Lambert the Sheepish Lion, Chicken Little, Three Blind Mouseketeers and Elmer Elephant.

The Prince and the Pauper

Imagine if you looked exactly like a member of the royal family—now imagine the prince was sick of living a sheltered life and wanted to switch places with you! That’s what happens to a pauper (pauper means poor person) named Mickey when he meets the Crown Prince. The two look-alikes switch places but their joyrides are full of unexpected challenges and Micky and the Prince soon learn the grass isn't always greener on the other side. This DVD also features four other short films including The Pied Piper, Old King Cole, A Knight For a Day and Ye Olden Days.

Three Brothers were stranded on an island. They found a lamp.  1st brother: Hey! Maybe this is a magic lamp like the movies. They rubbed it. Nothing happened. They tried again. Nothing. They tried and tried again, until almost all hope was pulled from their very hearts. 2nd brother: Maybe we will be stuck here forever 3rd brother: Yeah 1st brother: Nonsense! There has to be another way Fortunately the lamp was just delayed. Very very delayed. Something appeared. It had legs, It couldn't be a genie Unknown creature: Hello. It is the genie. 1st brother:You don't look lik- Genie: Enough! Each of you have one wish. 1st brother: I wish to go home. His wish was granted. Home he went. 2nd brother: I wish to go home with my brother. 2 down, 1 to go. 3rd brother: I wish my brothers were here so I'm not lonely.
