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.

Cold Cuts Served Up Hot
21 April 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

YET ANOTHER ENTRY in those multi-Goofy how to and sports specials. In this case, it takes on Ice Hockey (Or just "Hockey", as we'd say on the Southside of Chicago). It's manic pace and generously supplied abundance of finely tuned and tailored hockey gags surely must have been a welcome hiatus from the most serious and grim daily War news that had occupied the transcendental over-soul of the World for the previous half decade or so.

THE STORY MAKES fine exploitation of every it. The stadium, the rabidly enthusiastic fans, the names of the teams, the official and the break-neck speed of the action all contribute to the fun.

IN ONE SENSE, this film must have been both a pleasure to do and also somewhat easier than some others. After all, at its core is lampooning a particular esoteric and highly specialized sector of the Sports World in Hockey and its fans.

THE CARTOON ALSO acts as a sort of barometer of the times in illustrating behaviour and practices that were in vogue then, being the mid 1940's of World War II and shortly thereafter. It was a time when the public was just a trifle more formal than now. Our case in point is illustrated so beautifully in the costuming of the spectators portrayed. Simply stated, folks dressed up then. It was suits, ties, nice dresses for the ladies; as opposed to blue jeans & tee shirts of today.

BUT THEN AGAIN, on the other hand, we have the game itself. That never does change.
