Storyline

Goofey is portrayed as George Geef, a typical common man who makes a perfect prey for all kinds of swindlers, bookmakers and the like, eager to be a 'good looser' after they 'won' all his money; never mind the name of the game nor the venue, from alley to casino and 'friendly' poker nights. Alas, even when lady luck smiles at him, the poor player doesn't stand a chance against the worst gold-digger of all: the wife, who 'manually' blames his irresponsible behavior when he looses but otherwise cheerfully claims all his occasional hard-earned winnings for her own fashionable waste.

Gambling Goofy
17 July 2013 | by See all my reviews

Goofy is a great character, not just in the case of Disney but also animation generally. Of the recurring popular characters in the Disney shorts of the 30s-50s, Goofy was the one who developed overtime to the everyman persona that makes him so endearing and easy to relate to. Get Rich Quick is great fun and showcases Goofy's talents and personality splendidly. Goofy, as well as being fully able to inhabit the role, is naturally funny and is likable as always, you even feel sorry for him at the end as he deals with another problem that isn't his gambling. The gags are clever and inventive, also more importantly hilarious, especially Goofy with the barrel. Where it succeeds as well is how well it tells its story, the gags and animation tell volumes, it is always involving and not predictable at all, and it takes a serious issue(that is even relevant today) and incorporates it in a way that entertains and teaches. The animation is colourful and clean, with the colours looking gorgeous and everything is beautifully drawn. Visual ideas like with the slot machine also shows that those who animated Get Rich Quick were having fun, and it was equally fun to watch from an audience perspective. The music compliments the humour wonderfully, one of the strengths with the Disney shorts musically was how the scoring added to the gags and you can hear that here, as well as the music being memorable and very pleasant on the ear. To conclude, great fun with Goofy and Disney. 10/10 Bethany Cox
