Storyline

A crowd gathers at the skating rink to watch the big championship hockey game of the Pelicans versus the Aardvarks. Although referee "Clean Game" Kinney does his best to supervise, the hockey game really gets out of hand eventually. Two star players, Bertino and Ferguson, are so anxious, they never get let out of the penalty box, referee Kinney is never able to drop the puck without being physically hurt somehow, and the spectators themselves are so worked into the game, they take out their aggression on the ice while the players relax in the bleachers.

Trivia

What a riot of a hockey game!
13 June 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I simply adore this cartoon! Not only is it for me the single funniest of the Goofy sports cartoons, but also alongside Goofy Gymnastics, How to Dance, The Big Wash and Motor Mania as one of his best ever cartoons. The animation is great, colourful and done at fever pitch, the use of multiple Goofys was an interesting touch, and the story is fast-paced with a wonderfully frantic ending and the game itself as wild as you'd expect. But it was the gags and pace that really struck me that was so good about Hockey Homicide. The pace has so much energy to it it's almost like watching a Looney Tunes cartoon(that's a compliment by the way), there is some inspired use of footage of Pinocchio(with Monstro), How to Play Football and How to Play Baseball, and the gags are delivered in a constant breakneck fashion and keep coming so it's not until the ending(which is still one of the cartoon's highlights) when you can sort yourself out from laughing so much. Goofy is still as clumsy and likable as ever, and Doodles Weaver's narration is very witty. All in all, a riot and is recommended without a moment's hesitation. 10/10 Bethany Cox
