Bunyan in Tall Tales


  • As said in the song, he is described as "63 axe handles high". As the average axe handle is about 18 inches long (45.72 cm), that would make him about 94.5 feet (about 29 meters) tall. As a baby, the choir who sang him to sleep said he was "10 axe handles high".
  • In Once Upon A Time, Paul Bunyan didn't appear. However, an illustration represents him in the second tome of fairy-tales found by Henry Mills and Violet.
