Quotes

Narrator: Selecting the proper television is of utmost importance, and there are many models from which to choose.
[Goofy stops in front of a large television to his left; his cart rolls slowly to a stop against something just off-screen]
Narrator: Ahem... A conservatively-sized unit is the most prudent selection.
[Goofy looks to the right, and sees an even larger television, many times taller than the stack of items in his cart]
Goofy: [to the giant TV] I... love you.
[Goofy hugs against the gigantic television screen]

Grand Return of Goofy
15 December 2010 | by (Louisville, KY) – See all my reviews

How to Hook Up Your Home Theater (2007)

*** (out of 4)

Goofy made his return to the big screen with this 7-minute short that really captures the spirit of the older cartoons. Goofy grows tired of watching football on his old, B&W television so he goes to a local store to upgrade everything and soon finds himself buried behind dozens of boxes trying to hook it all up. Back in the day Goofy made all sorts of "How to..." films but this here is certainly one of the best. I think those who have actually tried hooking up any type of home theater are the ones who are going to get the greatest kick out of this because it perfectly captures how frustrating it can be trying to put the thing together. The jokes with all the wires needing to be plugged in and the size of the various televisions were very funny. Another highlight comes when Goofy is waiting for the delivery men who of course don't show up on time. I'm sure kids will get a few laughs out of the physical comedy but this is clearly aimed at adults and I'm sure they're the ones who will enjoy this the most.
