Trivia

When Goofy, whose arms and legs are trapped in the barbells, is rolling on the barbells like wheel, he is shown to have his t-shirt tucked into his shorts. This is a common rule for participants of any gym to follow since this encourages people to prevent their shirts from flying up in the events they tumble. Ironically, Goofy caveman-like suit continuously flies up. See more »

Narrator: [as the record falls onto the record player] Welcome to the super dynamic muscle, tissue, figure and body-building company at faith firmly. For our number one exercise, suppose we try the barbell.

Always has been one of my favourite Goofy cartoons
22 April 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I do like Goofy and actually enjoy his cartoons as an adolescent than as a kid, where I was more partial to Mickey and Donald. Goofy Gymnastics has always been one of my favourite Goofy cartoons. The animation is colourful and fluid, Goofy has been slightly better animated before but he still moves with ease and still looks good. The music is full of the typical energy, with a delightful if brief snippet of Song of the Volga Boatmen. The story is crisp and has its charm, slightly routine, but elevated hugely by the hilarious slapstick that shapes the humour and the cleverly written and thoughtfully delivered(by John McLeish) narration. Pinto Colvig is great as Goofy, who is still as endearing as ever. All in all, I recommend Goofy Gymnastics highly. 10/10 Bethany Cox
