Willie the Giant can be found in the 1947 Walt
Disney animated film 'Fun and Fancy Free.' He can also be found in
the films 'Mickey's Magical Christmas: Snowed in at the House of

In television shows he can be found in 'House of Mouse,' 'Once Upon

Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom game. It would be great to see him
brought into Disney parks more, but it would to tricky to create a
theme for him.
