The game is based on the Mickey and the Beanstalk section of Disney's 1947 animated package film Fun and Fancy Free. In the film Walt Disney gave his last major performance personally voicing Mickey Mouse, as he had done since 1928.


The film is based on the fairy tale Jack and the Beanstalk.


In this instance Ern Shaw's credit must be for the game's design rather than the illustrations. In slightly later printings Ern Shaw's signature is dropped from the cover of the rule book, see below.
