Storyline

The king returns to his castle, and asks where the queen is; she's in the parlor, and won't be seen, according to the title song. He goes to his throne and summons his jester, Goopy Geer. Various bits of silliness ensue (including an Amos & Andy impression cut in some versions). A black knight arrives and threatens one of the young ladies in court; Goopy fights him off, first with an ax, then in armor from kitchen utensils, then butting him with a mounted animal head, which makes the knight's armor fall apart. He pulls it together again and runs away. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

This is one of only a few cartoons made with a character called Goopy Gear

In the early days for animation at Warner Brothers, like most studios, you had attempts to develop continuing characters. Some, like Bosko and Buddy, had fairly long runs. Others were tried out in a handful of shorts and for one reason or another didn't last long. Foxy is an example of this and this short contains another, a character named Goopy Gear. Goopy is the court jester and the hero here. There isn't anything special about this short or the character, which I suspect is why he didn't stay around that long. Worth watching, but not terribly important or fascinating.
