Storyline

After a short sketch of the universal importance of dance in human cultural history, Goofy demonstrates the misery of those who don't master dancing to a confident level in the 20th century, the perilous techniques to learn ballroom dances and the result of all that hard footwork- more hard then it works...

Trivia

The Firehouse Five Plus Two Dixieland band consists of Ward Kimball, Frank Thomas and, for the most part, other Disney animators. Not only is their music on the soundtrack, but their likenesses are caricatured in the dance animation sequence. The band made many record albums over the years for Good Time Jazz and often performed at Disneyland. See more »

Goofy cuts some rug.
30 September 2017 | by See all my reviews

Goofy seems to have a lot of these stories where the plot in his cartoons are experimental. In this case, a narrator tells the story of the different dancing methods for Goofy to learn so he could get into the scene.

This cartoon is more like a mini-documentary than an animated story. Not much laughs in this one and Goofy hardly speaks, but there are some various nice dancing sequences and catchy music. It's not an awful cartoon, just a little mediocre.
