Trivia

The two football teams in the game are the Dawgs and the Geefs, both references to two of Goofy's pseudonyms over the years, Dippy Dawg (his early incarnation) and George Geef (his "everyman" name from his 1950s cartoons). See more »

If you know a guy into Hi-tech entertainment...SEE THIS SHORT!!
31 December 2007 | by (Silicon Valley) – See all my reviews

Walt Disney's Heaven-residing spirit must be VERY happy right now! For the most worthy successor to his genius for knowing what makes people happy, John Lasseter from Pixar, has started the ball rolling on bringing back the truly wonderful spirit of the classic Disney 2D animation of the '40s & '50s by releasing Disney's brand new "National Treasure" companion short "How To Hook Up Your Home Theater", starring Goofy! And this truly is Goofy as portrayed 60 years ago, and every little detail of his environment is true to his time.

You must know I'm one who's life was made much happier by falling in love with everything Walt created. And I also remember comparisons written a few generations back comparing Disney cartoons with Warner Bros., and how most of them agreed how much better Bugs and all his gang were...and I agreed, mostly, except when it came to Donald and especially Goofy. Well, I'll swear on a Bible in a courtroom, whatEVER your cartoon preferences have been THIS one will have you almost literally rolling in the aisles! It made this 61 year-old tech geek applaud and get tears in his eyes(in public!) I was laughing so hard, and so often, while being entranced by this animated treasure! And best of all, this ode to guys and our love of new gadgets was directed by....a woman! No WONDER it works so well! So, as I like to say about entertainment I love: "If this doesn't get you laughing I'll bury ya myself!"
