Did You Know?


The Firehouse Five Plus Two Dixieland band consists of Ward Kimball, Frank Thomas and, for the most part, other Disney animators. Not only is their music on the soundtrack, but their likenesses are caricatured in the dance animation sequence. The band made many record albums over the years for Good Time Jazz and often performed at Disneyland. See more »

How to Dance with Goofy
7 May 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Goofy I have always liked, he is clumsy yet very funny and lovable. Alongside Motor Mania and Goofy Gymnastics, How to Dance is one of my favourite Goofy cartoons. With the vibrant colour palette, well-drawn character designs and fluid backgrounds, How to Dance is animated beautifully, while there is also a snappy soundtrack, thoughtful and somewhat sardonic narration(delivered to perfection by John McLeish) and many funny, imaginatively-timed moments with Goofy's chaotic but somewhat endearing attempts to ballroom dance. All in all, one of Goofy's best cartoons and certainly one of my favourites of his. 10/10 Bethany Cox
