A great remedy for when you yourself are fighting a cold
7 July 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

In Cold War Disney have delivered another treasure starring one of their best ever characters. The animation is vibrantly coloured and drawn with great care and detail. Goofy's facial expressions and gestures and also the ways we can see how the cold is affecting him is done very well here. The music is of the best kind, it is beautiful to listen to and have a lot of character, adding to what we can see on screen as well as matching it splendidly. While it is clever and funny, Cold War does make us feel sympathy for Goofy and his situation and even gives us great advice for what we can do when we fight a cold too. Maybe it is stuff that people will know already but for the main target audience it is also very useful to know these things. The story is very well paced and interesting, with a scenario that anybody will relate to. Goofy is still hugely appealing and has great charisma. In conclusion, a truly fine Disney short, when you yourself have a cold Cold War is a great remedy for it and I'd recommend it with no hesitation to be had. The boss' opening line "A cold is nothing to be sneezed at" is very cleverly worded, written in a funny, witty way while also stating the absolute truth. 10/10 Bethany Cox
