Storyline

In the city, Goofy finds his daily job much too stressful so he decides to leave this hustle and bustle for a more peaceful life in the tropics. He finds life there most enjoyable collecting shells from the beach, making a hut in which to live, getting back to nature, and even joining in the big luau feast (with meals such as shark fin soup). Yes, Goofy thinks nothing can go wrong in this paradise...until the natives need to sacrifice someone to their volcano... Written by Matt Yorston <george.y@ns.sympatico.ca>

The work a day world vs. the tropical paradise world
29 July 2013 | by TheLittleSongbirdSee all my reviews

Goofy is one of Disney's best characters, naturally funny, likable and out of him, Mickey and Donald he is the one who have developed/evolved the most. Hello Aloha is not among the best of the Goofy shorts, but it still entertains and is relateable. The transition from daily life to paradise does come across as awkward at first. The animation is very good though, the characters are well drawn though not exceptionally(once again there's this Goofy look-alikes idea here that could have done with a little more variety), while the colours are vibrant and the backgrounds fluid with something always interesting to see. The music is energetic and characterful with lush orchestration and as ever merges with the humour and the action brilliantly. The narration is informative, witty and deliciously sardonic in places, with Goofy doing things different to what it's saying and messing things up is very funny stuff. It's very like the format of the How to...shorts, which was a nice touch. The gags are imaginative and well-timed, the scene with the hammock came across as the highlight. The story is slightly routine in places, but that doesn't matter when it's colourful and funny, and also that it has a situation that anybody in the workplace can identify with greatly, with an ending that is decidedly subversive and comes off very well. Overall, not one Goofy's better shorts but still has the things that make his shorts fun to watch and he is on top form also. 8/10 Bethany Cox
