Storyline

Two polite twin gophers are in their underground home, playing gin, when a dog buries his bone right on top of them. They try to negotiate with the dog so that he will bury the bone somewhere else. But the dog refuses to be cooperative and chases the gophers straight into a gas main, which the gophers seal from the outside. Written by Kevin McCorry <mmccorry@nb.sympatico.ca>

Very funny entry in a very good series of cartoons from Warner Brothers
8 December 2000 | by (Tucson AZ) – See all my reviews

This cartoon was part of the "Goofy Gophers" series of cartoons and is one of the better ones. It features two of the most laughably, almost painfully polite, characters ever seen. Although Disney's "Chip 'n' Dale" preceded them and are probably better-known, I personally like The Goofy Gophers much better because I find their manner far more appealing. Such impeccable Manners and refined behavior in the types of situations in which these two find themselves. Although sight-gags are plentiful, the dialogue is hilarious. Well worth your time. Recommended
