Robert Clampett left the cartoon unfinished when he left Warner Bros, having reportedly only supervised the recording of the dialogue. The film was completed by Arthur Davis, who had inherited Clampett's unit. See more »

One of the most hilarious cartoons I have seen in a while
The Goofy Gophers was one of those cartoons that I remembered vividly as a child(especially the ending) but for a while had forgotten the title of. Coming across it by chance via Youtube(always good for re-discovering childhood favourites and new discoveries), I found myself falling in love with it. The Goofy Gophers is one of the most hilarious cartoons I have seen in a while. The dialogue is razor-sharp and witty and the gags- in laugh-a-minute mode- are imaginative and executed brilliantly. That is especially true of the "did you have your iron today?" and female gopher gags. The ending is also very entertaining for a brief but priceless cameo from Bugs Bunny. The fast pacing and fun story, detailing of the intellectual dog even when very crafty not being a match for the polite but somewhat dangerous gophers, further compliment the humour, while the slapstick and violence also add to the fun without being too cartoony or sadistic. The animation is great, with some luscious colours and backgrounds and everything is very fluid and detailed. Carl Stalling has been consistently wonderful with his music, it is always dynamic and beautiful to listen to while also enhancing the action and colour(which is what music in cartoons should do) and his scoring for The Goofy Gophers is not a disappointment whatsoever. The dog and gophers work wonders together, and voiced with aplomb by one of the gods of voice-acting Mel Blanc. All in all, a hilarious and very well-made cartoon and one I recommend with no hesitation. 10/10 Bethany Cox
