"Contrary to popular belief, golf isn't a waste of time"
27 May 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The Goofy-Disney How To...shorts always bring much enjoyment and How to Play Golf does so too. The part where Goofy loses his temper did seem out of character for me both in the short and with his character in general. That said, the animation is great with lots of vibrant colour and smooth drawing, it is not just pleasing to look at but the style has a real charm to it that still holds up today. The music is every bit as good, it matches with every gesture, facial expression, gag and bit of action perfectly and is definitely the sort of music I'd listen again to with no hesitation. The gags manage to be hilarious throughout, the ending especially so as Goofy, the stick and the bull go clubbing singing and drinking, a sight that has to be seen to be really believed. The story makes great use of the interesting idea for Goofy to ignore the narrator while the demonstration stick comes into the "real" world to assist him, and does it with a real sense of fun and light-heartedly, just the right tone for the How to...series and for Goofy. The narration manages to be witty and informative, that's what I love about the How to...series, how it entertains and teaches and does both so well. Goofy is as appealing as he ever is just doing what he does best(an everyman type of character who can break into multiple personalities), while the demonstration stick is a fun supporting character. Fred Sheilds does a very good job narrating, if just lacking the thoughtfulness of John McLeish. Overall, great, like golf it certainly isn't a waste of time. 9/10 Bethany Cox
