Play It Where It Lies
22 January 2019 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

Pretty much some tired old stuff relating to the game of golf. Goofy was Disney's sports expert and did several cartoons with him as the main character. He deals with water hazards, sand traps, uncooperative clubs, and a charging bull. All in all, it is colorful and uses rapid motion. Goofy, of course, is the foil here.
