"Oh, I'm a ropin' and a ridin' and a shootin' fool"

9/10
Author: TheLittleSongbird from United Kingdom

Not the most surprising of plots, one that is fairly similar to a Mickey and Pete short from the late 20s-30s, but still a huge amount of fun. It works wonderfully as a spoof on westerns, an interesting genre that can be under-estimated. The gags are clever and hilarious, especially the literally explosive ending and Goofy's finishing line. The plot is not much of a surprise, but moves very quickly and is still entertaining. The animation is bright and colourful as well as beautifully drawn, while the music is so well orchestrated and characterful, as always managing also to synchronise with the action. Goofy's song is catchy and has funny lyrics. Goofy is still a very likable character with great comic timing and a strong personality that is well interwoven with the scenario. Pete, with a closer character design to the Pete we are familiar with now, is decidedly antagonistic and contrasts to thrilling effect with Goofy(though he generally works better with Mickey). The voice work is excellent.

To conclude, a little routine but funny, colourful and clever western spoof that is quite a good introduction to the genre. 9/10 Bethany Cox

My Hero!

A Walt Disney GOOFY Cartoon.

Without even trying, silly TWO GUN GOOFY is more than a match for evil Pistol Pete.

This funny little film is a fine spoof of Western movies & stories. Pete once again proves his adaptability, a quality which kept him as the top villain in the Disney shorts for decades.

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.

Cute, if not terribly memorable, Goofy short

7/10

This short features Goofy going up against Peg Leg Pete. It's cute enough, but thoroughly predictable and not all that memorable. It is well-animated, though. The concept really doesn't work as well as it should with the personality of Goofy for some reason. Worth watching at least once, but nothing terribly notable with this one.
