Storyline

With a war going on and tires and gasoline needing to be rationed, the man's automobile is not much use these days. So other forms of transportation are needed, each one suggested by an average United States denizen (each one, a Goofy like-alike). Some of these include a dog-powered vehicle, a cycle consisting of various feet which does your walking for you while you sit, children's vehicles which combine play with transportation, a golfer's "Model Tee" which you can use to "drive" to work (with a golf club), a politician's "pump-mobile", and a pair of roller skates operated by a handy magnet. But the most important vehicle during this time is... the pogo stick. The pogo's many uses are demonstrated and, pretty soon, the pogo will ultimately become the most popular transportation mode (though, obviously, since then, it hasn't!).

Very un-PC
10 July 2004 | by (The Penumbra) – See all my reviews

Okay, it's WWII. And there's a gas and rubber shortage. So America compensates by inventing loads of wacky vehicles that are powered in more eccentric ways.

The narrator says that the money we save could be dropped on Tokyo or Berlin. Such a nice thing to say in a Disney cartoon. There is also a road sign saying 'SAVE YOUR SCRAPS TO BEAT THE JAPS.' How lovely. I'm sure the Japanese will appreciate this today. God forbid they get the Disney channel.

It's primarily a Goofy cartoon. And I don't find him all that funny. Though there is a lot of invention and imagination put into it. Shame it had to be so Xenophobic. But I guess it was okay to be so at this point in history.
