Jack (Lou Costello) and his "agent," Mr. Dinkel (Bud Abbott), are struggling to find work through an employment agency. They land a gig baby-sitting a troublesome boy named Donald (David Stollery). Trying to get the child to sleep, Jack reads him the fairy tale "Jack and the Beanstalk" which subsequently lulls Jack asleep, transporting him into the fantasy world of the storybook. There, he encounters magic beans, a giant and a princess in distress, among other things.

Audience Reviews for Jack and the Beanstalk

    Bud Abbott is little more than a character presence in this children's fantasy starring his partner Lou Costello, who is rarely off-screen at all, even for a minute. Everything in the production for children only is silly but for the song and dance numbers and one is tempted to feel sorry for the children forced to watch this unabashed money grab.

    Weird, but not in a good way. I guess I'm just not a fan of Abbott and Costello humor.

    Bits of brilliant comedy, combined with moments of supremely bad special effects and embarrassingly unfunny jokes.
