Jack (Jack and the Beanstalk)
Jack and his Ma are penniless and hungry. What are they going to do? Jack's Ma decides that they will have to sell Daisy the cow if they are to survive. Jack fails to sell Daisy but on the way home he bumps into a man with some beans to sell. Jack agrees to sell Daisy for the five magic beans Jack goes to bed that night and dreams of the magic beans.
According to researchers at the universities in Durham and Lisbon , the story originated more than five millennia ago, based on a wide-spread archaic story form which is now classified by folklorists as ATU The Boy Who Stole Ogre's Treasure. Jack is a young, poor boy living with his widowed mother and a dairy cow on a farm cottage. The cow's milk was their only source of income. When the cow stops giving milk , Jack's mother tells him to take her to the market to be sold. On the way, Jack meets a bean dealer who offers magic beans in exchange for the cow, and Jack makes the trade. When he arrives home without any money, his mother becomes angry, throws the beans out of the window, and sends Jack to bed without dinner. During the night, the magic beans cause a gigantic beanstalk to grow outside Jack's window.
In the first episode of the fairy tale's same name from Happily Ever After: Fairy Tales for Every Child , he is portrayed as an African young boy, and he is the one who points out that "fum" and "African" do not rhyme. He is voiced by Wayne Collins. In the tale, he is a very poor man or boy who lives with his widowed mother. With only a cow, he goes to the city hoping to get some money by selling it, but he is tricked into trading it with some supposed magical beans. His mother gets angry at him, throws the beans out the window and sends him to bed without supper.
