Storyline

Goofy demonstrates how not to drive on the freeway: first, the overly timid driver, then the overly aggressive driver, and finally the inattentive driver, shaving or eating. Some of the advice is a bit dated: following distances are still in car lengths instead of time, and of course cell phones aren't mentioned directly. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

Entertaining and educational
20 August 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Very like the How to...series in format, and almost as good as the best of that series of Disney Goofy shorts. With a format so familiar, it's not much of a surprise as to the outcome of what Goofy does. In a way though, with the format you are guaranteed to be entertained and also to learn something. And that is the case with Freewayphobia. The documentarian-commentary-like narration is wonderfully droll and thoughtful. It is always so much fun to see Goofy doing the complete opposite as to what the narration says, and what there is to learn about how to and how not to drive on the freeway is really interesting and good for prior-knowledge for when you start driving. Goofy as always is an endearing character with great comic timing, as with some of the How to...shorts he takes on more than one persona- three in fact, all driver characters- which shows a wider range of acting emotions that has rarely been seen by any of the other popular Disney characters of the time. He is great as all three, but especially as the inattentive one, and it is nice to see him to be a little more insulting than usual, not since Motor Mania have we seen that side to him. The gags are cleverly timed and hilarious, always serving the format of the short well and never failing to entertain and teach. The animation is bright and colourful, not as fluid as the 40s and 50s Goofy shorts, but much improved over that of the previous short Aquamania, which was a not-so-successful attempt to introduce a relatively new animation technique to a Goofy short and didn't always feel like watching a Goofy short. Here in Freewayphobia you do feel like you're watching a Goofy short, and the format and the various personas Goofy takes on helps. The music is energetic and full of character and orchestral lushness. Pinto Colvig and Paul Frees' voice work are fine. All in all, entertaining and educational, well worth watching. 9/10 Bethany Cox
