From Ethanimation21 :

An simple, underrated Disney movie that tells 2 unrelated short stories. One's based off a book about a circus bear named Bongo who escapes to the woods and learns to survive while also falling in love and the other is Mickey and the Beanstalk which I like the most. It's just like the original story with a few twists. For one the giant has powers and is rather dumb. Hosting the movie is Jiminy Cricket who listens to the first short being narrated before leaving to attend a part where ventriloquist Edgar Bergen tells the latter story to Luana Patten with the help of his dummies the dimwitted Mortimer Snerd and the snarky Charlie McCarthy. I really like the chemistry the actors have with each other though it may come off as corny and vaudeville-ish to some viewers. I thought the chase scene at the end of Mickey and the Beanstalk was cool though I wonder why Willie the Giant didn't use his powers as he showed earlier what he could do in a short song. Speaking of which most of the songs are enjoyable to listen to though they're dated. It's also interesting to note that this was one of the last times Walt Disney voiced Mickey before handing over his responsibility to sound effects artist Jimmy MacDonald. If you have little kids check it out they'll enjoy the animation, dialogue and jokes. Adults may like it too though they may be turned off by how old it is. Take it for what it's worth and see for yourself.
