Goofy trying to build a house with highly amusing consequences
27 June 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Not one of Goofy's absolute best shorts, but what makes him and his shorts so entertaining in the first place is here and done very well. It is somewhat routine in terms of story, if you are familiar with his shorts you won't be all that surprised at what happens. That doesn't matter so much as the Goofy shorts are not about the story but the situations and how Goofy reacts to them. They are done to highly amusing effect, the best of the gags like the ending and the one with the window pane could be seen as hilarious even, and Goofy reacts to them in a wholly appealing and effortlessly funny way in a scenario that plays to his strengths. The narration is droll and thoughtful, managing to entertain and teach without feeling heavy-handed, and John McLeish delivers it wonderfully in a way that nobody else that narrated when he didn't(there are a few late-40s-ish ones where that was the case) did as well. The animation is lively and vibrantly coloured, with everything drawn very nicely. The music continues to be characterful and catchy with lovely orchestration, the title sequence here is very jazzy. In conclusion, colourful and very funny short, not one of Goofy's or Disney's best but still great fun. 9/10 Bethany Cox
