On his way to the glee club, Goofy Goat encounters a road hog - a pompous society pig being chauffeured in a car large enough to accommodate her enormous behind. A traffic cop stops them at an intersection, which gives Goofy the chance to lift his car up like a skirt and dance in front of her. When the cop lets them proceed, Goofy lifts up one of the back wheels and shoots exhaust fumes at her as a gesture of contempt. She utters "Damn" under her breath. Finally, Goofy makes it to the glee club in time for the amateur talent show. First, three kittens sing about losing their mittens. Next, Goofy's girlfriend plays the piano so vigorously that it breaks apart. Goofy, who happened to be inside the piano, extricates a harp from the wreckage, and she plays that instead.

Violent, But Not For Adults, Either
10 July 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Only in cartoons can you pull your automobile over your head like it was a tee- shirt, then wrap it up like a bandanna and fling it over your shoulder. That's what this crazy goat did after he couldn't get out of his car the conventional way.

In this dated cartoon and story, Goofy Goat spends the first two minutes battling a "road hog" on the city streets. He then enters a vaudeville-like contest at the local Glee Club building. Before he does his bit, we several other acts. All of the music is familiar, even today. You've all heard these songs.

It turns out to be one of the musical cartoons in which everyone's moves are coordinated to whatever music is playing. Some of the scenes are a little strange and violent for little kids, yet I didn't think this was clever enough for most adults.
