Goofy as a gaucho
15 May 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

El Gaucho Goofy is not one of my favourites of all-time, that said there is still a lot to like about it. Very like the format of the How to...series(which I am very fond of), El Gaucho Goofy is a little routine in terms of story. The animation however is great, the colours are warm and vibrant and the fluid backgrounds and drawing are also very nice. It also gives me the feel that I've been transported to South America, which is always a bonus. The music is very catchy as well with lots of energetic rhythms and lush orchestration. Like the animation, it succeeds in being authentic. The narration is sly, funny and thoughtful, with some very adept voice acting to deliver it. The visual gags deliver too, the best of them are hilarious, my favourite being the one where the horse turns over making the bed on Goofy despite the narrator telling us the opposite. Goofy is every bit the appealing everyman that is so endearing about in the first place, and the rhea(though can be easily mistaken for an ostrich, which will help to answer those who question what an ostrich is doing in South America) is a good match for him.

All in all, very good though I've seen better from Goofy. 8/10 Bethany Cox
