Storyline

G.G. Geef (Goofy) takes his son on a camping excursion. All along the way, he boasts about all the great "adventures" he's been on. Meanwhile, his son is looking forward to encountering a lion which he does continually, even though Goofy often doesn't notice the lion. He does later that night though when the lion stows away in his sleeping bag and chases him. His son is able to fend off the lion with his pop gun. Finally, Goofy and son take off for a new campsite but Goofy still hasn't learned his lesson about spinning yarns ("Did I ever tell you about the time I was a race driver?").

Into The Woods With The Goof
18 July 2003 | by (Forest Ranch, CA) – See all my reviews

A Walt Disney GOOFY Cartoon.

Goofy's boasting to his son takes on the smack of reality when FATHER'S LION wanders into their campsite.

Here is a typical Goofy film - lots of physical comedy and few intellectual presumptions. This was one of a small handful of cartoons to feature the Mountain Lion and probably gave him his best role. After a few roles in the shorts, Junior would return years later in the Goofy animated features as 'Max.'

Walt Disney (1901-1966) was always intrigued by pictures & drawings. As a lad in Marceline, Missouri, he sketched farm animals on scraps of paper; later, as an ambulance driver in France during the First World War, he drew comic figures on the sides of his vehicle. Back in Kansas City, along with artist Ub Iwerks, Walt developed a primitive animation studio that provided animated commercials and tiny cartoons for the local movie theaters. Always the innovator, his ALICE IN CARTOONLAND series broke ground in placing a live figure in a cartoon universe. Business reversals sent Disney & Iwerks to Hollywood in 1923, where Walt's older brother Roy became his lifelong business manager & counselor. When a mildly successful series with Oswald The Lucky Rabbit was snatched away by the distributor, the character of Mickey Mouse sprung into Walt's imagination, ensuring Disney's immortality. The happy arrival of sound technology made Mickey's screen debut, STEAMBOAT WILLIE (1928), a tremendous audience success with its use of synchronized music. The SILLY SYMPHONIES soon appeared, and Walt's growing crew of marvelously talented animators were quickly conquering new territory with full color, illusions of depth and radical advancements in personality development, an arena in which Walt's genius was unbeatable. Mickey's feisty, naughty behavior had captured millions of fans, but he was soon to be joined by other animated companions: temperamental Donald Duck, intellectually-challenged Goofy and energetic Pluto. All this was in preparation for Walt's grandest dream - feature length animated films. Against a blizzard of doomsayers, Walt persevered and over the next decades delighted children of all ages with the adventures of Snow White, Pinocchio, Dumbo, Bambi & Peter Pan. Walt never forgot that his fortunes were all started by a mouse, or that childlike simplicity of message and lots of hard work always pay off.
