Storyline

Goofy's in the driver's seat, Mickey's in the kitchen, and Donald's in bed in Mickey's high-tech house trailer. When Goofy comes back to eat breakfast, leaving the car on autopilot, it takes them onto a dangerous closed mountain road. When Goofy realizes this, he accidentally unhooks the trailer, sending it on a perilous route. They come very close to disaster several times, while the oblivious Goofy drives on and hooks back up to them. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

One of my favorite Disney cartoons!
3 November 2013 | by OllieSuave-007See all my reviews

This is one of my favorite Disney cartoons, featuring stars Mickey, Donald and Goofy. Here, they are going on a camp-out in their hi-tech trailer. Goofy takes the driver's seat, Mickey is cooking in the kitchen and Donald is in bed, trying hard to wake up.

This cartoon is filled with hilarious scenes that will send an audience laughing their hearts out, including parts where Mickey tries to wake Donald up, Goofy trying hard to get some food in his mouth while the trailer is rolling up and down on bumpy roads, and the part where Donald gets down on his knees and pray as their trailer came close to colliding with an incoming train. My favorite part is where the trailer tumbles down the hill, in a comedic way.

Filled with laughter, adventure and some camp-time music, this cartoon short is surely a timeless classic for all ages to enjoy.

Grade A
