Storyline

When railroad baggage buster Goofy has to handle a magician's large case, it accidentally opens. At every touch the case releases another part of a zoo of show animals and their attributes, such as a top-hat that sprouts white rabbits, a matador's cape from which a frisky bull and a boxing kangaroo are produced... The whole fauna has to be reassembled and repacked before the arrival of the train, but even when that is done... Written by KGF Vissers

Enjoyable but also occasionally a little tiring
22 August 2012 | by TheLittleSongbirdSee all my reviews

Goofy has always been one of my favourite cartoon characters, being very funny and endearing. Baggage Buster is a very good and enjoyable cartoon. However I didn't care much for the scenes where Goofy is trying to get the animals inside the trunk, they got tiring eventually and actually slowed the short down. However, there are many other gags that do compensate, such as a bull popping up out of a handkerchief, a kangaroo appearing and starts punching Goofy, and a menagerie showing up out of nowhere, disappearing back into the trunk then it reappears and are very very funny. The end scene also raises a laugh. Apart from the scenes with trying to get the animals in the trunk, Baggage Buster is quickly paced, and benefits further from having beautiful animation and energetic music. The story may remind one of Donald's Ostrich, except Baggage Buster is much more entertaining as a whole. The trunk is prominently used and is used very, very well. Goofy is on top form, while he works better when we find something obvious but he doesn't he but the fact that he is easily distracted here, rather than getting easily frustrated like Donald, in his actions ensures that his characteristic clumsiness still convinces. All in all, very good but not my idea of an outstanding short. 8/10 Bethany Cox
