A poor young girl has a burning desire to find comfort and happiness in her life. Desperate to keep warm, the girl lights the matches she sells, and envisions a very different life for herself in the fiery flames.
This was the first Disney film to experiment with "paperless" animation. Half of the animation was drawn directly into the computer using Wacom Cintiq graphic tablets. See more »

Goofy made his return to the big screen with this 7-minute short that really captures the spirit of the older cartoons. Goofy grows tired of watching football on his old, B&W television so he goes to a local store to upgrade everything and soon finds himself buried behind dozens of boxes trying to hook it all up. Back in the day Goofy made all sorts of "How to..." films but this here is certainly one of the best. I think those who have actually tried hooking up any type of home theater are the ones who are going to get the greatest kick out of this because it perfectly captures how frustrating it can be trying to put the thing together. The jokes with all the wires needing to be plugged in and the size of the various televisions were very funny. Another highlight comes when Goofy is waiting for the delivery men who of course don't show up on time. I'm sure kids will get a few laughs out of the physical comedy but this is clearly aimed at adults and I'm sure they're the ones who will enjoy this the most.
