"Get your programs here folks you'll not know one knight from another without a program" Funny and creative, a Goofy classic
1 August 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Goofy has always been one of my favourites. He's goofy and clumsy, but he is funny with it and we love him still. A Knight For a Day is for me one of his best. The formula of the How to Sports shorts is evident, but stretched to fit the medieval setting, which shows that Disney have creativity. A Knight For a Day knows when to be fun also, again like Hockey Homicide and How to Play Football Goofy is in multiple roles and shows not just his clumsy charm but also his versatility as some of them are varied. The gags are imaginatively timed, especially the ones when the shield is scared and the lion on it runs away and the one with the sold out sign on the drawbridge, and with also Cedric's ponderings on what to do next and how he defeats Sir Curcumferance are very funny(the latter is ingenious). The modern narration, still as brilliantly witty as ever, juxtaposes with the setting very well and never jars, giving us the sense that despite this setting that we are still watching a cartoon in the vein of the How To sports shorts. The animation is beautiful, with lots of fluidity and colour, while the music enhances the action beautifully by its typical energy and character. Goofy is stellar in every one of his roles, playing the comedy brilliantly as well as being endearing. The voice work is also very good. Overall, a Goofy classic, a must-watch. 10/10 Bethany Cox
