Goopy, a dog of no particular personality, but a crackerjack piano player, plays several songs on the stage of a nightclub. We spend a fair amount of time watching the patrons and staff of the nightclub.

Storyline

At a nightclub, the crowd demands Goopy Geer, and the lanky dog doesn't disappoint them. He gives a zany performance on the piano, but the employees and the customers are just as wacky. A gorilla waiter dances while serving. Three identical cats display a peculiar way of eating. A chicken has a nauseating way of making chicken soup. The nightclub singer tells corny jokes. Even the hat racks come to life and dance. A horse imbibing a too-strong drink provides the show-stopper. Written by J. Spurlin

Mild cartoon with an unappealing star
29 April 2008 | by J. SpurlinSee all my reviews

At a nightclub, the crowd demands Goopy Geer, and the lanky dog doesn't disappoint them. He gives a zany performance on the piano, but the employees and the customers are just as wacky. A gorilla waiter dances while serving. Three identical cats display a peculiar way of eating. A chicken has a nauseating way of making chicken soup. The nightclub singer tells corny jokes. Even the hat racks come to life and dance. A horse imbibing a too-strong drink provides the show-stopper.

The chicken soup gag, and another one with a hippo getting goosed, prove that crude humor is not limited to modern children's films. As for the unappealing Goopy Geer: he makes one long for the bland Bosko. Or more of the hat racks.
