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 and Donald as bill posters
1 January 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I love Disney, I love Goofy and I love Donald Duck. Reasons enough to watch Billposters. And for me I consider Billposters one of the funniest and best shorts pairing Goofy and Donald. The animation is wonderful, the backgrounds are crisp and detailed and the colours are appealingly vibrant. Both Goofy and Donald are very well drawn as well. The energetic and beautifully orchestrated music evoked a similar reaction from me, and I expected this as the music is a big ingredient of why the Disney shorts on the most part are such a big success. The use of Whistle While You Work was a very nice touch, a throwback to Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, a pioneering achievement in animation. The story is one of those stories that could easily be tired, but it is really helped by the brisk pacing, the chemistry between Goofy and Donald and the clever gags, the standouts being Goofy's confused reaction to the windmill stealing his brush, the bucket falling on Goofy's head to make him look like an elephant and the goat eating the posters. I do agree here that Goofy is the stronger character of the two in this short, but he and Donald work so well together and the short play to their strengths and personalities(Goofy when he makes an easy situation harder than it is and Donald in how he reacts to everything) seamlessly. Pinto Colvig and Clarence Nash's voice characterisations are both distinctive and done with terrific gusto. Overall, a wonderful short, one of the best and funniest with Goofy and Donald paired together. 10/10 Bethany Cox
