Making Fun Of Tennis
7 January 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Here's a takeoff on the sport of tennis. The first thing they do is make fun of the fact - at least when this was made - the sport didn't draw many fans. They show a long line of cars.....going to the nearby Flower Show, instead. The "packed crowd" is just packed in one small area of the stadium.

We then see the first contestant, "Big Ben," who is shown to be a primma donna and a man with an assortment of powerful shots against "Little Joe," a defensive specialist (meaning he just holds the racket up for self-defense, and the ball the hits and bounces back each time.)

The match goes back and forth and really silly things are seen such as "the greenskeeper" of this grass court coming out in the middle of play and mowing the grass, planting a tree, planting seeds and watering the lawn. Another thing frequently shown is crowd with their heads going back and forth in an exaggerated manner as the ball is hit back and forth. That gag is overdone.

This is not one of the better Disney sports cartoons featuring Goofy.
