How to fight the cold.
20 November 2017 | by (California, USA) – See all my reviews

It was just a coincidence that I was having a cold when watching this cartoon, so, I could totally relate to poor Goofy when he was suffering from the effects of the sickness - from cold feet to a runny nose, and from the shivers to sneezing.

The narrator is back once again, telling the story of Goofy being set home by his boss because of him catching a cold, and of his wife giving him all kinds of remedies to cure his sickness - from stuffing his mouth full of medicine to soup, and from heating pads for his feet to putting in nose drops.

Not a bad cartoon. Not too funny, but a little entertaining.

Grade B-
