Storyline

After a short of history of man's eternal quest for sleep (from the stone ages to modern times) as well as a demonstration of what puts man to sleep and how man sleeps (like the dog, the ostrich, etc.), we see Goofy's attempts to sleep despite insomnia. He tries opening a window, using an electric blanket, drinking hot milk, counting sheep. Nothing works. He consults a scientist who studies Goofy's sleeping habits and finally finds a cure for Goofy's insomnia... Written by Matt Yorston <georgey@atcon.com>

Disney has covered most of the famous passtimes after this one
10 February 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Call it running out of ideas or simply making a short for a quirky topics, Jack Kinney has made another short film for Disney, this time one that focuses on the importance and vitality of sleeping. How to Sleep stars Goofy, showing us an overworked soul who is in dire need for sleep, but also goes out of its way to show us how sleep has evolved over the years and where we've come in our innovations as man and how we sleep. This is a cute short, one that takes a simple concept and makes it surprisingly witty, entertaining, and often laugh-out-loud funny. The beauty of these old school Disney shorts is, not only do they look remarkable for their age, but they manage to house so much humor and subtle craft into their basic premises.

Directed by: Jack Kinney.
