Storyline

Goofy (again playing George Geef) is a nicotine addict to the extreme. He smokes while doing income tax, before going to bed, after waking up in the morning, and at work. Finally, he decides to quit. He soon learns it's not as easy as that and everywhere he looks, he is tempted to start again until he finally cracks. He runs everywhere yelling, "Smoke! Smoke! Smoke!" but with no luck. Finally, he asks a man for a cigar and the man gladly gives him one...an exploding cigar which finally has Goofy vowing, "I quit!". Written by Matt Yorston <georgey@atcon.com>

Trivia

One Goofy in this short is smoking a cigarette made by a brand called "Phyllis Morrison," which is a parody of Phillip Morris. Another Goofy sky-writes an ad telling to "Smoke LOOKYs," which parodies the advertising message, "Smoke LUCKYs" (as in Lucky Strike, which was the cigarette brand Walt Disney often smoked).

"No Smoking" (1951) is a short all about cigarettes and their addictive
27 May 2006 | by (Southern California, United States) – See all my reviews

"No Smoking" (1951) is a short all about cigarettes and their addictive nature. It begins with a short history of smoking with the various characters being played by "Goofy people". It begins with Christopher Columbus first encountering cigarettes in America with the Native Americans. It then continues to show modern day Goofy and his fight to quit smoking. It shows Goofy and all the temptations he faces to continue smoking. The ending is interesting, but I won't give it away.

I'm sure that anyone who smokes can identify with Goofy's struggle. This is a great short as it is still relevant today. Recommended as are All classic Disney cartoon shorts.
