Product Description

With a gentle, childlike innocence, Goofy has delighted audiences for 70 years. For the first time ever, celebrate Walt Disney's lumbering, lovable, and eternally loyal everyman in this retrospective of his classic animated shorts and enjoy the heyday of one of the most popular characters in cartoon history. Unlike the rest of Disney's "mouse pack," Goofy didn't become a major movie star overnight. This compilation of shorts begins with the Goof's first starring role. The volume also includes animator Art Babbitt's original descriptive reference of all things Goofy, the original voice behind the Goof, Pinto Colvig, and an exclusive interview with the current voice of Goofy, Bill Farmer. You'll also have the opportunity to see theatrical posters and other memorabilia, a selection of story drawings, and background paintings. After all, it's the Goofy thing to do. Featuring exclusive introductions by film historian Leonard Maltin, this is a timeless collection from generations past for generations to come.

In Stand By Me (1986), one of the boys asks, "If Mickey is a mouse and Donald is a duck, what's Goofy?" The answer: he's a dog. Originally named Dippy Dawg, the Goof, as the animators called him, made his debut as an obnoxious hayseed in "Mickey's Revue" (1932). This generous collection includes 46 of the 48 shorts that starred Goofy between 1939 and 1961 (but none of the great Mickey-Donald-Goofy films from the mid-'30s). The "How to Ride a Horse" sequence in The Reluctant Dragon (1941) set the pattern for many of these cartoons. An elegant narrator (artist John Ployardt) explains a sport that Goofy attempts to demonstrate. The character that animator Art Babbitt described in a 1935 lecture (quoted in the DVD bonus material) as an easygoing dimbulb gave way to an enthusiastic but spectacularly maladroit figure. One of the funniest entries in the series, "Hockey Homicide," contains several studio in-jokes: dueling stars Icebox Bertino and Fearless Ferguson, and referee Clean-Game Kinney are named for artists Al Bertino, Norm Ferguson, and director Jack Kinney.

During the '50s, Goofy was transformed into a genial suburban Everyman in such domestic sitcoms as "Fathers Are People," "Two Weeks Vacation," and "Father's Day Off." The animators reduced his floppy ears and buck teeth, improved his posture, and gave him a brisker walk. The best-known short from this period is "Motor Mania" (1950), a mildly didactic spoof of American behavior on the road that was shown in driver's education classes for decades. (Unrated: Suitable for all ages: cartoon violence) --Charles Solomon

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
I enjoy the content of this DVD a great deal. Unfortunately, this DVD set leaves off a valuable option available on last year's MICKEY MOUSE IN COLOR and SILLY SYMPHONY compilations--the ability to "view all" with a single command on the menu. Instead, viewers will have to manually choose each cartoon, one at a time. I hope that Disney will reconsider in determining the playback options in future short feature compilations.

This is an excellent product as the other reviews suggest, but be wary of purchasing from the second hand sellers...They are overcharging for a product still available through the Disney Video club...I just purchased my brand new dvd for 29.95 from the club, February 2006. Yes, you have to join, but at least you will have product to equal the high price...100 dollars can buy you 3 other vids...I shake my head at this.

Format: DVD
As far as Disney's animated shorts go, the Goofy cartoons are probably the funniest the studio ever did, and this mostly wonderful two-disc set collects them all -- every "How To" cartoon, every sports cartoon, every cartoon from the "George G. Geef" era -- they're all here. Some are better than others, of course. The earlier "Geef" cartoons, before Pinto Clovig returned as Goofy's voice, don't feel like the character at all.
There are also three great featurettes on this set, one about Clovig himself, one about the evolution of Goofy and an interview with Bill Farmer, the current voice of the Goof. Hearing Goofy's voice coming out of this jolly, rust-haired man is jarring and wonderful at the same time.
One complaint -- boy, has Disney gotten PC. On four of these cartoons, they found it necessary to do a disclaimer by Leonard Maltin because the cartoons contain some potentially "sensitive" material -- a World War II era cartoon has the audacity to use the term "Jap," a western send-up has stereotypical "injuns," a short about a teacher sparks fears of school violence and a bullfighting classic portrays Mexicans in an "unflattering light." All four disclaimers have essentially the same message -- "People weren't as smart then as they are now! Please don't hate us."
I'm all in favor of intros, putting cartoons in context, historical data, etc., but the way these four cartoons were singled out really insulted my intelligence. It's GOOFY, for Heaven's sake, was anybody planning to take the cartoons seriously? In my review of a previous "Treasures" DVD, "Mickey Mouse in Living Color," I said that Warner Bros should use these discs as a model for how to do Looney Tunes DVDs.

The Disney treasures collection is the best and cheapest way of getting the entire series to their golden age shorts.
I must warn you not to buy any of these mini DVDS if you are someone who would love the full collection being the mini DVDS are just repeats or shorts due on future disney treasures.

GOOFY has Stared in 76 colored shorts in total from 1935-1965
Below is a complete list of all his appearnces. it comes in 4 collumns: first the episode number, then the date, then the official clasification of the series it comes under, then the title.

All Episodes clasified as Mickey Mouse are seen in both volumes of Mickey Mouse In Living Color, Any clasified as Donald and Goofy are seen in the donald Duck collection which you can check out the same details of on both donald duck dvds on amazon in my reviews.

The Goofy DVD has all 46 classified as Goofy.

the only 2 Goofy cartoons upto the 1960's that are still not available and have no furture treasure that are due out which could include them are his very last 2 original cartoons made in 1965 classified as Educational, which I think is why their not on his DVD being their not clasified as Goofy, nor are they part of any other disney series on the other treasures.

were either theatrical movies, plus movies that were shorts combine when originally released which you can get on DVD now such as Mellody Time which are all classified as part of disney's masterpiece collection, but their is one movie with a goofy short not classified as disney masters which is THE RELUCTANT DRAGON, you can get the reluctant dragon on the disney treasures volume of: BEHIND THE SCENES which includes the short of HOW TO RIDE A HORSE.

Any plans for a re-release???
I agree. The whole collectable tin thing is BS. And where are all these sellers getting the factory sealed discs without the tins? Are they throwing the tins away or keeping the empty tins for a candy jar or what? This whole Disney Treasures thing is so shameless. $30 is reasonable, but $20... Read More
