With the help of a smooth talking tomcat, a family of Parisian felines set to inherit a fortune from their owner try to make it back home after a jealous butler kidnaps them and leaves them in the country.
It's the last day of school, and Max wants to catch the eye of Roxanne, one of the more attractive girls in school. But how can you be cool when your dad's Goofy? Stage an impromptu concert at the final assembly, that's how! Or at least it sounded good until Principal Mazer found out. Goofy finds out about his son's antics (sort of), and decides a fishing trip, like his dad took him on, is the solution. Of course, he doesn't know that Max finally lands a date with Roxanne for a party thrown by the class valedictorian. Through the movie, Goofy tries to bring Max out of his shell, while Max resents being taken away, and lying to Roxanne about the trip (he tells her he & his dad will be appearing on TV at the PowerLine concert in LA). Will Max sink or swim? Will Goofy goof up his son's first shot at romance? Will Bigfoot step back? And what about those nuns?Written by

GOOFY HOLLER: The cartoon equivalent of the famous "Wilhelm Scream" can be heard as the movie opens and the title is shown on screen. Again at the end of the movie after Goofy's car explodes and he's sent flying upwards, then plummets back to the ground. The scream is heard one more time after the credits roll. See more »

OK, I'm a grown up man and I love this movie. I know I have kids but shouldn't I want to watch grown up films? Maybe this is actually just a good movie that adults and kids alike can enjoy.
This is a well underrated full-length cartoon movie about Goofy taking his son Max camping for the summer vacation. You know what Goofy is like from his appearances in Mickey Mouse films and the name Goofy sums it up. To make things more interesting, Max is wanting to be the cool kid in school and his dad is an embarrassment.
The trek across the States in Goofy's little car and all the madcap things that happen to them reminded me of the original "Vacation" film only for kids and a little funnier.
The music in this film is excellent. Some of the tracks could have been singles in the charts in their own right. Maybe not nowadays though.
If you have kids then they will love this film. If you don't have kids go to the video shop, hire it out and pretend it is for the kids.
