my thoughts on motherhood, kids, books and stuff

No One Is Happier…

Does anyone else remember this creepy version of “Jack and the Beanstalk” that came out in 1974? (three years before I was born)



It was one of my favorite movies as a kid and I was so excited to find this clip. The music in the movie is catchy and unusual.  This song (the most normal song in the show) got stuck in my head constantly as a kid and has even popped into my head off and on as an adult and I hadn’t even heard it for over twenty years! 

As I browsed through other clips on YouTube I remembered how bizarre this movie is. I will have to watch it again before I decide if I will share this piece of my childhood with my kids.

I can still picture myself sprawled out on the orange carpet in the dining room while we watched this show on the tv that dad built.

What? Didn’t everyone have orange carpet in their dining room? (and kitchen)

Huh? Didn’t everybody’s dad build their tv?

  • I haven’t seen this one – it is a creepy take on it though. It reminds me of the tv shows in the Philippines during that time.

    And you just made me feel old. 😉

    I think I remember watching that at you house with you. How funny is that. I haven’t thought of that movie since those day’s. I remember the orange carpet.

  • I don’t remember that movie – the one I remember that I HAD to watch every time we came down was the Snow Queen. I just loved that movie, for some reason. I think I wanted to watch it every time we came down there. hehehe.

  • Well I remember the orange carpet! Do I ever!
