Consensus: Though it doesn't quite live up to its title, Fun and Fancy Free has its moments, and it's a rare opportunity to see Mickey, Donald, and Goofy together.

Fun And Fancy Free is a mixed bag with more than enough interesting material to make it worth seeing, even if it falls short of Disney's shameless self-praise.

TV Guide

A slight, but enjoyable, Disney animated feature comprised of two cartoons linked together by host Jiminy Cricket.

This was one of my favorites as a child, Bongo is just one of those things that has stuck in my head all these years.
