You don't know Jack
Over at Let's Anime Dave's been talking about Anime on CED, one of the many dead formats from the late 70s and early 80s. Lucky for you, you don't need a Capacitance Electronic Disc System to watch the classic Jack & The Beanstalk. Like Pinocchio in Outer Space and Alakazam The Great this was one of those movies I saw as a kid that left a big impression on my young mind. I wonder now if it wasn't in part because I recognized the voices of Billie Lou Watt, Corinne Orr, and Jack Grimes. Mostly it was the strange imagery in Jack & The Beanstalk that stuck with me over the years. One of the great kiddie mindwarps to inflict on your favorite preteen.
