The Powerpuff Girls' Adventures of Fun and Fancy Free is the ninth Powerpuff Girls crossover film to be made by Stephen Druschke. It will appear on YouTube in the near future.

Storyline

  • Jiminy Cricket first appears inside a large plant in a large house, exploring and singing "I'm a Happy-go-Lucky Fellow", until he happens to stumble upon a doll, a teddy bear, and a record player with some records, one of which is Bongo, a musical romance story narrated by actress Dinah Shore and is met by The Powerpuff Girls, Pinocchio, The Seven Dwarfs, Merlin, and Dumbo.
  • Jiminy decides to set up the record player to play the story of Bongo.
  • The story follows the adventures of a circus bear named Bongo who longs for freedom in the wild as The Powerpuff Girls, Pinocchio, The Seven Dwarfs, Merlin, and Dumbo enter to meet Bongo.
  • Bongo is raised in captivity and is praised for his performances, but is poorly treated once he is off stage.
  • As such, while traveling on a circus train, his natural instincts urge him to break free with The Powerpuff Girls, Pinocchio, The Seven Dwarfs, Merlin, and Dumbo following him.
  • As soon as he escapes and enters a forest, a day passes before his idealistic assessment of his new living situation has been emotionally shattered, and he experiences some hard conditions.
  • The next morning, however, he meets a female bear named Lulubelle.
  • The two bears immediately fall in love, until Bongo soon faces a romantic rival in the brutish, enormously-shaped bear named Lumpjaw, much to the fright of The Powerpuff Girls, Pinocchio, The Seven Dwarfs, Merlin, and Dumbo.
  • Bongo fails to interpret Lulubelle slapping him as a sign of affection, and when she accidentally slaps Lumpjaw, he claims her for himself, forcing all other bears into a celebration for the "happy" new couple, much to The Powerpuff Girls, Pinocchio, The Seven Dwarfs, Merlin, and Dumbo's horrible shock.
  • Bongo comes to understand the meaning of slapping one another among wild bears and returns to challenge Lumpjaw with The Powerpuff Girls, Pinocchio, The Seven Dwarfs, Merlin, and Dumbo helping.
  • He manages to outwit Lumpjaw for much of their fight until the two fall into a river and go over a waterfall.
  • While Lumpjaw is presumably swept away by the river and never seen again, Bongo's hat saves him from falling down, and he finally claims Lulubelle as his mate, much to The Powerpuff Girls, Pinocchio, The Seven Dwarfs, Merlin, and Dumbo's lovely surprise and happiness as they leave the story.
  • They go to a house to meet Edgar Bergen in live-action sequences, who, with the help of his ventriloquist dummies Charlie McCarthy and Mortimer Snerd, tells the tale to child actress Luana Patten at her birthday party, with Jiminy, The Powerpuff Girls, Pinocchio, The Seven Dwarfs, Merlin, and Dumbo listening in after having read an invitation shortly after the previous story ended as the Narrator begins to tell the story of Mickey and the Beanstalk, that The Powerpuff Girls, Pinocchio, The Seven Dwarfs, Merlin, and Dumbo enter to meet Mickey, Donald, and Goofy.
  • A jovial countryside land called Happy Valley, kept alive at all times by a singing harp, is suddenly plagued by a severe drought and falls into turmoil and depression after the harp is stolen from the castle by a mysterious assailant (and also nicknamed "Gruesome Gulch").
  • The residents are driven into poverty and have no choice but to leave in order to avoid death by starvation.
  • Eventually, only three residents are left: Mickey, Donald, and Goofy.
  • The trio have but just one loaf of bread and a single solitary bean to eat, much to The Powerpuff Girls, Pinocchio, The Seven Dwarfs, Merlin, and Dumbo's disappointment.
  • During this time, Mickey has no choice but to cut the bread into paper-thin slices for the three friends to eat.
  • Driven insane by his hunger, Donald goes into a rage, complaining that he cannot stand it anymore, much to The Powerpuff Girls, Pinocchio, The Seven Dwarfs, Merlin, and Dumbo's terrible fright.
  • He makes a sandwich out of plates and silverware, but Mickey, Goofy, The Powerpuff Girls, Pinocchio, The Seven Dwarfs, Merlin, and Dumbo stop him and manage to calm him down.
  • He then sees an axe and attempts to kill their pet cow for beef with said axe, but misses when Mickey, Goofy, The Powerpuff Girls, Pinocchio, The Seven Dwarfs, Merlin, and Dumbo manage to stop him again.
  • Mickey then decides to sell the cow for money to buy food.
  • Goofy, Donald, The Powerpuff Girls, Pinocchio, The Seven Dwarfs, Merlin, and Dumbo are excited about eating again and begin to sing about delicious dishes (to the tune of Funiculi Funicula) until Mickey comes back and reveals that he sold the cow in exchange for a container of beans that are said to be magical.
  • An enraged Donald, thinking that Mickey had been tricked, furiously throws the beans down the floor, and they fall through a hole, much to The Powerpuff Girls, Pinocchio, The Seven Dwarfs, Merlin, and Dumbo's pure shock and sadness.
  • However, it turns out that the beans are truly magical after all as later that night, the light of a full moon causes a beanstalk to sprout from under the house and lift it far up into the sky.
  • The next morning, Mickey, Donald, Goofy, The Powerpuff Girls, Pinocchio, The Seven Dwarfs, Merlin, and Dumbo climb the gigantic beanstalk and enter a magical kingdom of enormous scope, where they appear to be tiny creatures compared to their surroundings.
  • They eventually make their way to a huge castle, where they help themselves to a sumptuous feast.
  • There, they stumble across the harp locked inside a small box, and she explains that she was kidnapped by a "wicked giant".
  • Immediately after, a giant named Willie emerges from the shadows, grunting angrily while simultaneously breaking into a happy song ("Fe Fi Fo Fum") and bouncing a ball about while demonstrating his powers of flight, invisibility, and shapeshifting.
  • As Willie prepares to eat lunch, he catches Mickey hiding in his sandwich after Mickey sneezes when Willie pours pepper onto the sandwich.
  • Mickey tries to run away, but fails when Willie catches him.
  • Mickey then plays palm reader and gains the childish giant's trust.
  • Willie offers to show off his powers, and Mickey, spotting a nearby fly-swatter, requests that he change himself into a fly.
  • However, Willie suggests turning into a pink bunny instead, and as he does, he sees Mickey, Donald, Goofy, and The Powerpuff Girls, Pinocchio, The Seven Dwarfs, Merlin, and Dumbo with the fly-swatter.
  • Angry, Willie captures Mickey, Donald, and Goofy and locks them in the harp's chest so as to keep them from pulling any more tricks.
  • In order to escape, Mickey must find the key and rescue his friends.
  • He does so with the help of the singing golden harp, who begins singing Willie to sleep.
  • Mickey almost alerts Willie to his presence by sneezing after falling into a box of powder in Willie's pocket, but the same powder makes Willie sneeze and he loses sight of Mickey.
  • Mickey frees his friends, The Powerpuff Girls, Pinocchio, The Seven Dwarfs, Merlin, and Dumbo, and they make a break for it with the harp.
  • However, Willie wakes up from his sleep and spots them, giving chase all the way to the beanstalk.
  • Mickey stalls him long enough for Donald, Goofy, The Powerpuff Girls, Pinocchio, The Seven Dwarfs, Merlin, and Dumbo to reach the bottom as they begin to saw down the beanstalk.
  • Mickey arrives just in time to finish the job of sawing down the beanstalk, and Willie, who was climbing down, falls to his apparent death.
  • Back in the narrator's home, the narrator (being Edgar Bergen in the feature film and Ludwig von Drake in the short version of this feature) finishes his story, saying that with the return of the harp, Happy Valley returned to prosperity as The Powerpuff Girls, Pinocchio, The Seven Dwarfs, Merlin, and Dumbo return out of the story.
  • The narrator then cheers up his companion (being Herman in the short version and Mortimer Snerd in the feature film), who was crying about Willie's death, saying that Willie was a nice giant who did not deserve to die.
  • Just as the narrator says that Willie is a fictional character and not real, Willie himself appears, alive and well, tearing the roof off the narrator's house, as The Powerpuff Girls, Pinocchio, The Seven Dwarfs, Merlin, and Dumbo hide.
  • Willie inquires about Mickey's whereabouts, but the narrator faints in shock while the companion tells Willie goodnight.
  • The scene closes with Jiminy, The Powerpuff Girls, Pinocchio, The Seven Dwarfs, Merlin, and Dumbo leaving the house into the night and Willie noticing the Brown Derby restaurant and putting it on like a hat before stomping off to find Mickey with the HOLLYWOOD lights blinking in the background.
