| Game Information
The Simpsons: Bart and the Beanstalk is a game for the Game Boy released in 1994. It merged the Simpsons with the fairy tale of Jack & the Beanstalk.
The game tells the story of a poor family with a son named Bart Simpson. All they have are some donuts and a cow. One day, when the family runs out of donuts, Homer tells Bart to go to town and sell the cow. Bart runs into Monty the Miser, who offers him some magic beans in exchange for the cow. Bart doesn't want the beans, so Monty tells Bart he can also have a slingshot. Bart accepts the offer and goes home.
When Bart comes home, Homer pops the beans into his mouth, mistaking them for candy. Homer doesn't like the beans, so he sends Bart to bed. When Bart wakes up the next morning, he sees a giant beanstalk going up into the clouds and starts to climb it. When he reaches the top, he sees a giant castle and walks toward it. When Bart arrives at the castle, he opens the door and sees the beautiful wife of a giant. The giant's wife invites Bart in for a snack.
The giant's wife warns Bart not to touch the giant's three prized possessions: a bag of gold, a magic harp and a goose that lays golden eggs. The wife also tells him to avoid the soup du jour. Bart collects the three items, leaves the castle, and goes home with the giant's treasures. An angry and very hungry giant starts to follow Bart down the beanstalk.
Before the giant can reach the bottom, Bart grabs an axe and chopped down the beanstalk. The giant falls and Bart's home shakes so much that the family runs out to see what has happened. Bart shows them the gold, the harp and the goose and they are all so excited they are speechless (except for Homer, who says, "That's one ugly giant."). Bart's family uses the money to buy a new cow, and the money they make by selling the goose's golden eggs keeps Homer rolling in donuts for the rest of his life.
