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!).

One of the best Disney war-time shorts
17 May 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The Disney war-time shorts are all entertaining at least but not of an entirely consistent quality. Victory Vehicles is one of the best ones, and it helps enormously that one of Disney's finest ever characters is the focus. And also that Goofy is on top form as well, he is still the appealing everyman but he excels just as much in the multiple personalities that can be seen here. It is a beautifully animated short, vibrantly coloured and crisp in detail. The music is both rousing and whimsical, with the pogo-stick song something that won't escape your head in a long time. And I do mean this in a good way, it is incredibly catchy stuff and further advantaged by how well the animation matches it. The gags are very inventive and are also very funny, the running foot car and golfing vehicle sequences are particularly note-worthy, while the story is simple with a good message that gets its point across effectively. The commentary is relevant and cleverly observed, put across like the storytelling in a way that never feels heavy-handed in approach.

Overall, one of Disney's best war-time shorts and a pleasure to see Goofy again. 10/10 Bethany Cox
