Storyline

Bandit Pistol Pete enters a lawless western town and robs a bank. The town is in desperate need of a sheriff. Enter wandering cowboy Goofy who notices a pretty girl being held up in a stagecoach robbery by Pete. Lovestruck and completely oblivious to Pete, he foils the robbery while getting to know the girl better. This earns him a reputation as a great gunslinger and he is challenged to apprehend Pete. Pete tries to get his revenge on Goofy but every attempt backfires due to Goofy's clumsiness usually directed unintentionally at Pete. Written by Matt Yorston <george.y@ns.sympatico.ca>

Quotes

Goofy: [singing] Oh, I'm a ropin' and a ridin' and a shootin' fool. Oh, I'm as tough and ornery, meaner than a rawhide mule. Oh, I'm as quick as greasy lightnin' when I go for my gun. Reach... A-hyuck! Ya mangy buzzards, reach for the sun.

"Oh, I'm a ropin' and a ridin' and a shootin' fool"
3 August 2013 | by TheLittleSongbirdSee all my reviews

Not the most surprising of plots, one that is fairly similar to a Mickey and Pete short from the late 20s-30s, but still a huge amount of fun. It works wonderfully as a spoof on westerns, an interesting genre that can be under-estimated. The gags are clever and hilarious, especially the literally explosive ending and Goofy's finishing line. The plot is not much of a surprise, but moves very quickly and is still entertaining. The animation is bright and colourful as well as beautifully drawn, while the music is so well orchestrated and characterful, as always managing also to synchronise with the action. Goofy's song is catchy and has funny lyrics. Goofy is still a very likable character with great comic timing and a strong personality that is well interwoven with the scenario. Pete, with a closer character design to the Pete we are familiar with now, is decidedly antagonistic and contrasts to thrilling effect with Goofy(though he generally works better with Mickey). The voice work is excellent.

To conclude, a little routine but funny, colourful and clever western spoof that is quite a good introduction to the genre. 9/10 Bethany Cox
