Going to school with Disney
10 August 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Not one of Goofy's best shorts, with a story that comes across as routine, but very entertaining and also historically interesting. The school violence and the references to it are easy to spot though probably controversial at the time, is amusing and not too violent and fits very well within the story and its concept. The animation is bright and colourful with everything drawn smoothly, and the music is adeptly orchestrated and full of character. One of the Disney shorts' strengths was how the music merged so well with the humour, and you see that with Teachers are People too. The sight gags are slight but very funny and the sort of stuff people can relate to easily, especially the parent-teacher conference and the ending. Goofy is still likable and his everyman persona works so well for him, he's also great here with a scenario that plays to his strengths. Billy is one of those characters that has been seen many times and he is a brat but he is crucial to the story and his actions do make for some genuine laughs to be had. The narration is the sort that entertains and teaches, very like the best of the Disney/Goofy How To...series, and Alan Reed's voice work pitches it perfectly. Pinto Colvig is fine as Goofy too. All in all, interesting, funny and colourful, not one of the best but a winner still. 9/10 Bethany Cox
