Jack Dumpling does his best to help his poor mother, Clootie Dumpling, and his haless brother and sister, Pimple and Dimple Dumpling to make ends meet.

He thinks his luck has changed when he falls in love with Jill, Barron Boggin-Bogle's daughter.  However the Baron has other plans.  Aidded by his two enforcers, Frankie Fakebake and Permatan Peem, the Baron issues an eviction order to the Dumplings and forbids Jill from seeing Jack.

In dire straits, Jack sells the family cow, Cuddle, but is duped by Giant Guzzle's unscruplous chefs, Butcher Bonecruncher and Basher the Tattiemasher.b  Jack ends up with only a bag of beans to show for his trouble.

When Jill is captured and taken to Carcass Castle, the Giant's pad, Jack reaches rock bottom.  The magic milkmaids, Hairy Hulk and Dairy Mulk, come to his rescue.  Miraculously, a Giant beanstalk appears.  Jack and his family go on a scary adventure to Carcass Castle and after a narrow escape, Jack slays the Giant, saves Jill and everything comes up roses for the Dumpling Family!
