Original Summary:
"In the brilliant color of an Appalachian fall, the camera finds noted collector Richard Chase, as a group of children gather around him to listen to a tale. In the rich dialect of the region, he tells JACK AND THE ROBBERS, which is illustrated with exceptional original art. The story tells how Jack is joined by five bedraggled animals when he runs away from home. When they come to a robber's hideout, they help themselves to a sumptuous feast, then lie in wait for the robbers. Convinced they have been ambushed by a fierce band, the robbers flee in panic, leaving their riches to be enjoyed by Jack and his friends." - Summary from the teacher's guide.

"Uses animation in a depiction of the folktale about Jack and the robbers. Shows how Jack's five adopted animals help him out in a confrontation with a band of robbers. For elementary grades" - Summary from Worldcat.
