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.

Did You Know?
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
