Storyline

Goofy, staying at the Sugar Bowl resort, demonstrates the basics of downhill skiing, which the titles and announcer insist is pronounced "SHEEing". The equipment is, of course, of the era. As you can imagine, Goofy has much trouble keeping his skis parallel and pointing downhill. The final ski jump conveniently lands Goofy right back in bed. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

The Art of Skiing is one hilarious Goofy cartoon short
7 January 2009 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

Just watched this very funny Disney Goofy cartoon short on YouTube. In this one-as the narrator instructs on the fine art of dressing and then going skiing (which he insists is pronounced SHEE-ING)-the Goof does the opposite in every hilarious way one could think of and more. Director Jack Kinney and his animators milk every bit of humor and slapstick comedy out of this premise and provide a new bit for the humanized dog-his yodel. That yodel was not thought of by the character's original voice-Pinto Colvig who was at Fleischer in Miami at the time-but by his temporary replacement, George Johnson (other yodels were recorded by Hannes Schrolle). That particular bit proved so popular that it became a recurring thing in subsequent Goofy cartoons. So on that note, I highly recommend The Art of Skiiing.
