Storyline

Goofy is about to set up a hammock in the backyard of his penthouse apartment but is minus one tree. He immediately decides to get another one but he shows poor judgement in regards that the one he picks is unkowingly the home of a mountain lion. The lion returns to Goofy's penthouse to reclaim his tree, notices the hammock, and decides this is a much better source of relaxation than laying on a tree branch. Thus, he tries to remove Goofy from the hammock so he can relax himself and eventually a battle ensues. Written by Matt Yorston <george.y@ns.sympatico.ca>

A Goofy and Louie classic from the Disney Golden-Age
25 June 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Disney and Goofy are always at least fun to watch(I don't think I've seen one that I've disliked). Whether Lion Down is one of the all-time greats I am not sure, but if I were asked if I considered it a great classic short I'd say yes without hesitation. The animation is fluid and colourful, with lots of detail and life in every scene and frame. Both characters are beautifully drawn and the action never comes across as awkwardly movement-wise. The music is orchestrated in a way that is a treat to the ears, it also not only adds to the action but has a bit of humour of its own. The story is simple, but a lot less routine than some of the other Disney shorts of the time, in fact the low and high, town and country concept shows a little complexity, it is crisply paced and it is always easy to follow. The gags are both hilarious and inventive, the humour had a 30s-40s Looney Tunes feel to it which I loved while not feeling too different. Goofy and Louie work very well together, Goofy is always fun and likable(though the scenario does perhaps does feel a little more suited to the personality of Donald's) with the humour playing to his strengths, while Louie contrasts to great effect. In conclusion, classic Golden-Age Disney. 10/10 Bethany Cox
