One of the best Goofy cartoons ever made...
5 May 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Certainly one of my favourites alongside Goofy Gymnastics. It is not just one of the funniest cartoons I've seen with its inspired Jekyll and Hyde vibe, but with the serious problem of motorists in cars it is also important. The animation is just wonderful, sometimes scary and sometimes cleverly exaggerated. The music is full of energy and never feels out of place, the humour is imaginatively timed in that it would tickle your funny bone in an appropriately jarring sort of way and the narration is sardonic and thoughtfully delivered by John McLeish. Goofy is a tour-De-force as Walker and Wheeler, lovable as the former and quite scary as the latter. All in all, a superb cartoon and one of the best that Goofy has been in. 10/10 Bethany Cox
