Storyline

Big game hunter Goofy is riding his trusty elephant in search of a tiger. Unfortunately, while they are stopped for lunch, the tiger finds them, and soon enough, Goofy is separated from his rifle. The tiger toys with the goof for a while, then peels off the sole of one shoe and heads for the foot. Meanwhile, Goofy's been preparing a hotfoot for his tormentor, which gets him a small head start on the chase that follows. After a fair bit of chasing, Goofy's elephant comes to the rescue.

Trivia

Most of the animation of the tiger was handled by Disney animator Milt Kahl. Kahl was usually assigned the more difficult "straight" characters (e.g., realistic human characters, like the various fairy tale princes), and some of the other animators teased him about not being able to handle the broader, cartoonier characters. Kahl took this as a challenge, and once others saw his work on the film, the teasing stopped. Later, Kahl animated two other tiger characters: Tigger in Winnie the Pooh and the Blustery Day (1968) and Shere Kahn in The Jungle Book (1967). See more »

Tiger Trouble with the Goof
5 June 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I have always loved the Goofy cartoons. I especially love Motor Mania, The Big Wash, Goofy Gymnastics and How to Dance. Tiger Trouble is not one of my favourites of his, but it is typically enjoyable. Goofy is good here, suitably clumsy and lovable, but this is probably the first cartoon I've seen of his where he is overshadowed by the supporting characters. Here they are Dolores, the scene-stealing elephant from The Big Wash and Working for Peanuts, who is very sweet and very funny especially as she sits up prim and proper to eat the picnic and her rhythmic tiger tracking, and the tiger, who while looking more like a Snaggletooth sort of tiger rather than a Shere Kahn sort of tiger plays off against Goofy wonderfully, his best moments being when he loses his stripes and when he drags Goofy into the bushes. The chase through the jungle is also very thrilling. The animation is always bright and colourful, with some of the more detailed backgrounds of any Goofy cartoon, and the music has its usual energy especially when Goofy is trapped in the den and the jungle chase, sounding very much like themes from Cured Duck and Rugged Bear. I also liked that Goofy interacts with Dolores and the tiger instead of the narrator or the audience, that was an interesting change of pace, and the vocal/sound effects prove to be very creative in the case of the tiger's roaring and Goofy's yelling. All in all, a fun and very amusing cartoon. 9/10 Bethany Cox
