Inspired by a magazine ad, Goofy sends for a mail order body building course. First is weight lifting; after Goofy finally gets the weights up, a fly lands and sends him crashing through several floors in the apartment building. Chinups: the bar itself goes up and down. Then a rubber-band stretch device, which Goofy quickly tangles up in, sending him crashing through the building and several other pieces of equipment. Written by

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 »
While wearing his gym suit, Goofy always wears an orange hat with it. When Goofy has his hands and feet trapped in the barbell and rolls forward on it, he still wears the hat even as his caveman-like cloak falls over his head. Yet, while the cloak covers Goofy's head the hat does not bulge out. Also, when Goofy shakes the cloak off his head, the cloak briefly flies up showing Goofy wearing not hat as if it came off. However, when Goofy falls and flips off the board, he is wearing his hat again. See more »

[Goofy suddenly feels pain in his hind end]
Three, flex the knees. Four grip firmly with both hands. And five, we lift.

Arguably the most violent Disney cartoon short ever created
Goofy has always been my favorite Disney character ever since I was little. The excessive slapstick in his cartoons has always kept me in stitches. This cartoon has never failed to disappoint me. Typically, most Disney cartoons although funny, tend to be very slow paced and gentle for children's appeal, so even for a Goofy cartoon, the slapstick humor in this short laid very thick throughout. Almost to the point where Tex Avery himself probably would've been proud.
The priceless scenes of Goofy constantly taking a beating, while very violent, is enough to ensue laughter for a very long time. Watching Goofy repeatedly crash into the ceiling and walls and doing that trademark yodeling scream of his, for some crazy reason, just never gets old.
