Donald controls the hounds (or maybe they control him), and Goofy is riding on Horace Horsecollar, as the fox outwits both of them. Some other Disney characters are seen briefly in the hunting party at the end.

Storyline

A monocle-wearing Goofy and a bugle-bearing Donald Duck are two unlikely members of the English gentry engaging in their favorite sport: the fox hunt. The ever-frustrated Donald is burdened with a pack of unruly hounds, while Goofy is saddled (so to speak) with a shy horse, who is too timid to jump over a hedge. Goofy has to show him how to do it himself. Meanwhile, the quarry of the hunt proves to be wilier than your average fox. Eventually, Donald thinks he has the fox trapped, but the clever little beast manages to pull a rather stinky switcheroo on the overconfident duck. Written by J. Spurlin

An average hunt.
11 March 2016 | by (California, USA) – See all my reviews

This is an averagely-made Disney cartoon short where Donald and Goofy goes on a fox hunt. But first, Donald has some trouble controlling his band of lazy bloodhounds and Goofy has some issues dealing with his horse. Then, it's just a lot of running around and hide and seek with Donald and a small fox. Nice animation, but not much humor in this one

  • just a lot of average slapstick stuff. Nothing really stood out for


me, except for the random cameo appearances of Mickey, Minnie and Clark Cluck at the end of the cartoon short. I did, though, loved the tunes Goofy and Donald belch out while on their hunt, and their voice actors always do such a good job making the characters come to life.
