The Other Side of the Story
Foney Fables (1942)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

Sleeping Beauty, Tom Thumb, The Grasshopper and the Ant, The Boy Who Cried Wolf, Jack and the Beanstalk are fairy tales that we all know and love but this animated short puts a small twist on them.

Honestly, this short is okay and mildly amusing but it's really not as clever as I think it tries to be. Basically we are told the familiar stories and then see a different outcome. For example, instead of the Prince kissing Sleeping Beauty, he instead screams at her to wake up and shakes her. The giant can't chase down Jack because his second head is sick and doesn't feel like it. Haha, right? This short is cute in its own way and it's slightly entertaining but it's certainly far from a classic.
