Until fairly recently, Goofy has been all too overlooked.
24 February 2003 | by (Tucson AZ) – See all my reviews

Walt Disney and his animation staff gave the world a great many fascinating, entertaining and memorable characters over the years, but one of the best has also, paradoxically, been largely given short shrift by far too many people-Goofy, who was and is, in many ways, far more interesting than Donald Duck ever was or could be and even gives Mickey a run for his money at times.

Where Mickey and Donald needed foils to work exceptionally well, Goofy works quite well simply placed in a situation and having jokes bounce off him (sometimes quite literally) without needing a Pluto or a Chip n' Dale around to provide a source for tension and/or interaction. Besides, in a pinch, every character in a cartoon could resemble Goofy (like this one, for instance) if need be. This is a marvelous short from the mid-1940s that holds up very well indeed. Typically superb animation (a Disney hallmark throughout their history, as a general rule) and hilarious premise and narration. Well worth watching. Recommended.
