Storyline

Donald and Goofy are putting up advertising posters in a farm. Goofy prepares to post on a windmill, but his tools keep disappearing and reappearing on the windmill blades. Donald puts up his posters, a picture of a soup can, and a goat eats them immediately. Goofy gets stuck to his poster after it comes around on the windmill. Donald, being his calm, even-tempered self, gets into a battle with the goat. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

Goofy outdoes Donald
2 March 1999 | by (Denver, CO) – See all my reviews

Goofy and Donald Duck are out to put up some posters on a windmill. Why a windmill? Who knows. This short is well made but somewhat uneven. Goofy really outshines the feathered one. Most of Goofy's funny bits simply stem from the fact that he's Goofy. Donald's segments deal with him battling a goat who would like to eat the posters. Donald's segments just don't hold up to Goofy's.
