Jiminy Cricket hosts two Disney animated shorts: "Bongo," about a circus bear escaping to the wild, and "Mickey and the Beanstalk," a take on the famous fairy tale.
The Bongo (1947) story was inspired by a story written by Sinclair Lewis, which appeared in a 1930 issue of Cosmopolitan.
Naught left but beans.
Charlie McCarthy: Ahem. Bean, you mean.
During the "Mickey and the Beanstalk" feature, the giant dragonflies are spotted overhead (at around 55 minutes) and Donald exclaims "Bombers!" then mimics shooting at them with a machine gun. The story takes place long before such things existed.
Charlie McCarthy, Mortimer Snerd, Mickey Mouse, Jiminy Cricket, and Donald Duck are billed as if they were actors, when they are fictional characters.
