Storyline

Goofy narrates his own quest to Africa accompanied by various tour guides. He is in search of wild game. After run-ins with various animals while camping for the night and taking his morning plunge (ruined by a hippo that takes all the water with him when exiting the pool), he sets off in search of the black rhinoceros. Unfortunately for Goofy, the rhino is prepared for Goofy (thanks to a stool pigeon bird resting on his horn) and charges him. Goofy tries his gun against the rhino but the rhino is still to much for Goofy so he leaves Africa and leaves the rhino for other hunters. Written by Matt Yorston <george.y@ns.sympatico.ca>

Not great.....
5 November 2010 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

By the way, although the story is supposedly narrated by Goofy, the voice is of a normal person--not Pinto Colvig or George Johnson (the original voices of Goofy). This was yet another one of Disney's 'how to' videos starring Goofy. Unfortunately, this is not one of the better ones and finds Goofy on the African Savannah--but unfortunately, it's not particularly funny or inspired. And, oddly, the story is quite weak and the short ends all too abruptly. I was waiting for something interesting to happen...then, suddenly, the credits started rolling! By the way, goofy refers to his African porter as his 'boy'. Hmmm....not exactly politically correct, Walt--but it was the 1940s.
