Storyline

After several long days at work, Goofy finally takes a much needed vacation. However, his trip never quite gets off the ground mainly because he spends most of it stuck behind a slow moving trailer. When he gets a flat tire, the mechanic inspects every part of his car except the tire. The only motel he can find is a little shack too close to a railroad track. On the road once more, he gets stuck behind said trailer again only to pass it and discover no one is driving it. Written by Matt Yorston <georgey@atcon.com>

A Goofy classic
11 August 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

If you are a fan of Goofy you will love Two Weeks Vacation, it's one of his best shorts. The animation as is nearly always the case with Disney is great, the colours are vibrant, the backgrounds are detailed and the characters are well-drawn. The music again drives the short perfectly with how it synchronises with the action and gags, it also sounds lovely and it has a lot of energy. The sound effects are appropriate and never bizarre, while the narration is funny and educational and is voiced thoughtfully. The gags are imaginative and hilarious too, with the no vacancy signs, the running gag with the trailer and lines like "so long slaves" and "ta ta trailer". There is the odd creepy element too with the dilapidated shack. The story is paced very well, not feeling too over-stretched or too slight, and is the sort that will make you feel sympathy for Goofy, the ending is not the most surprising but amuses still so it doesn't come across as too much of a problem. Goofy is still a great character, instantly likable and comic timing comes naturally to him. And the trailer is a good support character, cute and somewhat annoying but still funny, although its material is basically a running gag it isn't one that wears out its welcome. Overall, a Goofy classic with everything that is so good about Goofy and his shorts evident. 10/10 Bethany Cox
