Storyline

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. Next, a couple of bagpipers are momentarily thwarted when Goofy punctures their bags with an umbrella. Undeterred, they pick up a couple of pigs and play them instead.

Insipid....

I think "Goofy Goat Antics" wouldn't appeal to any one today--no matter what their age. Back when it premiered, I assume small children were the audience, but even then this Van Beuren film was pretty bad.

The short begins with Goofy Goat trying to drive to the glee club meeting in this super-cutesy land. However, a fat pig being chauffeured is in his way and won't move. Eventually he passes her and makes it to his meeting. There, it's a pageant with one song after another--and the film had practically no plot. Just a lot of cutesy animals performing. Even the ending was pretty dull. Overall, not a lot to recommend this and ample evidence as to why Van Beuren didn't last very long in the cartoon business. With only adequate animation, too much singing and insipid characters, this one is clearly a bust.
