Jack is a simple boy who lives on a farm with his mother, his beloved dog and a happy cow. However, as times are tight Jack's mother sends him to sell the cow to the butcher in town, and along the way the boy runs across a magician who offers him a bag of magic beans in exchange. Foolishly Jack accepts and returns ‘empty handed,' angering his mother in the process. Yet that night, the beans sprout from the ground and turn into a giant beanstalk stretching beyond the clouds! Jack and his dog ascend to the land of the clouds and meet Princess Margaret, a lovely girl under the spell of an evil witch whose goal is to marry her to her son, a giant named Tulip. Can Jack help save the beautiful princess and restore peace to the land of the clouds?
Grunwald, an evil demon, is threatening the fantasy world of old, and only young Horus has the power to destroy him. Armed with the legendary Sword of the Sun (that he plucked from the shoulder of a rock monster, no less), Horus must make new friends (including the beautiful siren Hilda and a whole town full of villagers) and overcome treachery and hardships to defeat the evil Grunwald and restore peace to mankind!
Unico is a special unicorn with the ability to make anyone he meets happy. But the gods are not pleased, and out of jealousy, they bid the West Wind to exile young Unico to the Hill of Oblivion, where he shall stay, alone, forever. Luckily, the West Wind is a kind soul and instead, hides Unico away from place to place, keeping him shielded from the eyes of the gods. Along the way, Unico must make new friends and even save the world from an evil power!
Unico and Jack and the Beanstalk are two children's stories that have a bit of darkness involved, but most importantly have an insanely similar tone and feel. Children who like one will definitely like the other.
