Storyline

Goofy plays everyman again. He's an average working joe who demonstrates "the up on time/work on time/bed on time" routine while going from work to home every weekday. On Saturday night, however, he parties it up and attempts to get some rest the next Sunday but with his son around, it's impossible. He insists Dad take him to the beach and, although Goofy refuses, he ends up going anyway where he gets into all sorts of trouble mainly as the result of chasing his son all over the place.

Goofy's not so quiet Sunday
16 August 2013 | by See all my reviews

Any Goofy short is worth seeing once, and Father's Week-end is not an exception. Junior is cute to look at and counter-balances really well with Goofy, but somewhat of an irritating brat as well. Other than that, Father's Week-end is one of Goofy's better domestic shorts, which generally are entertaining if not quite on par with the How to...series. The animation is made up of vibrant colours and fluid drawing, the background art is often very striking. Especially that for the amusement park scene, though similar to those used in Straight Shooters(with Donald Duck) and Hold that Pose(also with Goofy). The music is lively and very pleasant on the ears, giving the gags a lot of character. One of the Disney shorts' biggest strengths was how the music blended and synchronised so well with the action and Father's Week-end is no exception to that. The gags are clever and don't forget to entertain, the scenes with Goofy in the tunnel of love and when he gets a tattoo are just great. The story is always involving and done in a way that you can relate to Goofy's situation, all of us would love a quiet Sunday, which for Goofy because of his son is not possible. Goofy is still an immensely likable character, and naturally humorous as well. Pinto Colvig and June Foray bring dynamic voice-acting to what they have, which is wittily written and easy to understand. Overall, easy to like, colourful and funny, not a masterpiece for Goofy but a winner all the same. 9/10 Bethany Cox
