Funny short!!!!!
31 July 2006 | by ((Near) D/FW Airport, Texas, USA) – See all my reviews

This is one of Disney's later animated short cartoons, featuring Goofy!!!!! "Aquamania" was released back in 1961 (Now that's late!), and it's a very good short. It's been a while since seeing it, but I do remember a part where Goofy was trying to get a boat into the water!!!!! Good stuff!!!!!

I've seen this first on VHS back in the early 90s (it was green and had sports shorts on the tape) because they didn't have my usual red "Fun on the Job" tape. Then I've seen this on the Old Disney Channel as a short by itself and on "Walt Disney Presents" (the part where that scientific duck (Is it Prof. Von Drake?) puts a little water on a microscope slide and we see boats shooting across the slide was seen before the cartoon started).

"Aquamania" - good short, good times!!!!!

10/10
