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>

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

I can't help having a soft spot for Goofy, clumsy he is but very funny and lovable also. How to Sleep is very clever, not quite one of his greatest like Motor Mania, Goofy Gymnastics and How to Dance but still one to watch. The animation is always great, colourful and vibrant, and the music is as energetic, dynamic and as action-enhancing as ever. As it is often with Goofy, How to Sleep is a very funny cartoon, this time dealing with Goofy and how to cure lack of sleep, some of the resolutions are not only amusing in how they result but also good ideas if you struggle to sleep too. And again like most Goofy cartoons, I always learn a thing or two. Goofy is always entertaining to watch, and Pinto Colvig's vocal work is just as good. All in all, a great, clever cartoon. 9/10 Bethany Cox
