Nicklaus got his dream when he was selected to be Goofy's 'friend" at Walt Disney World. Tis fun and entertaining book cover how he was selected (mostly- he was tall enough- most characters are played by smaller girls, but Goofy and a few others need a tall guy to wear that costume- and yes- that person inside that Donald Duck get up is almost certainly female, not male, like Donald is).
Not a gritty "tell all" book like some are, but still not afraid to cover many embarrassing and confidential aspects of playing a character, this book is a great read. Yes, there is a small amount of adult language used (a typo regarding Scrooge McDucks last name is rather hilarious) but this book can be read by any reasonably mature person.
Besides Goofy, Nick also got to be Woody, Mr. Incredible, the Beast, Captain Hook and a few bears that required a tall guy to fill out the costume. The tests and travails of each of the costumes and roles are covered, along with many of the areas Nick worked.
Many hilarious and even heartwarming moments are covered and more than a few embarrassing ones.
"Of Mouse and Men: Confessions of a Walt Disney World Character Performer" is highly recommended.
You can see behind the scenes and still feel the respect and admiration for Disney.
