Goofy and American Indians
31 May 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

It is understandable why American Indians may not like Californy'er Bust. The reason being that their portrayal is not always positive. However seeing as this is 1945 we are talking about, it worked considering the time period, besides it wasn't even offensive. Putting that aside, Californy'er Bust is a vastly entertaining short. Goofy is in multiple personality mode and really excels, I am in agreement that in terms of working on his own easily that Goofy is the strongest between him, Donald and Mickey They are great characters too, just not as strong as their own but in fairness they don't have that many shorts to show whether they can). The animation is great, both for back then and nowadays, it has beautiful vibrant colours and the backgrounds and characters are drawn with clean detail and fluidity. The music has much character and the quality of the orchestration, articulation and such really suit everything else going on in the short perfectly. The narration is thoughtful and funny, managing to really entertain while also teaching us things too, just another strength of the How to...series or shorts in a similar vein/format. The grammar, spelling and geography is going to be quite an artistic-license eye-opener, but it is what's done with it that's funny, this is not something that inaccurate for no reason at all. And there is a real feel of what it's like in the Wild West. The gags and physical contortions are hilarious to see and are very inventive, the broken English is funny without offending too much while the conversion of vicious savages to a music-playing band is a great and hilarious contrast, likewise with the Indian slithering on the rock and climbing on the wagon train and onto the arrow-ladder. To conclude, great entertainment and beautifully animated, despite you might think while stereotypical perhaps there's nothing to be offended by here. 9/10 Bethany Cox
