Disney Classic #9: Fun and Fancy Free
The film starts off with Jimminy Cricket putting on a record of the story Bongo. I love how that instantly dates the film. If this was a George Lucas film they would digitally insert an iPod.
Bongo is about a circus bear that leaves the circus and falls in love.
He's confused and sad. But this is only because he doesn't know that's how wild bears show affection.
Bears like to show love with a slap.
Just like Chris Brown.
Actually, I'm kidding. Chris Brown likes to show love with repeated violent blows to the face.
No, that's not really true. Chris Brown doesn't know a thing about love. Ahhh, I'm picturing Chris getting eaten by a circus bear. Yum, team breezy!
I like the Bongo story! It's funny, cute and well made.
Next there is a great live action segment. See Jimminy is in Luana Patten's house and he finds out she is at a party with Charlie McCarthy:
This film really works for me. The two segments run about 30 minutes each and, although the connection is pretty loose, Jimminy ties it all together and it feels like a movie.
I give this 5 bear slaps out of 5.
