Cartoon Production Information:
"Animated Tales of the World" was inspired by a simple idea: no nation is poor in stories, and we are all enriched by sharing them. In this series, village storytellers become global storytellers for all the children in the world. These indigenous tales and mythology form part of the heritage of each country, and each has been painstakingly crafted in a style of animation that reflects the spirit of its own culture.
Embarking on a quest to find fortune, love or happiness is a common theme found in folktales around the world. In this tale, Jack has set off from his home to find his fortune. In the process, he encounters a magical land and is given the opportunity to win a fortune by completing three challenging tasks. On top of all that, he finds his true love in an unlikely place and then almost loses the memory of his beloved forever. Not to worry, though - in folk literature, the protagonist usually finds a way to succeed and live "happily ever after."
