Walt Disney Treasures - The Complete Goofy
Frequently Bought Together
Customers Who Bought This Item Also Bought
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

Though this collection is "The Complete Goofy", it would have been nice to include the two cartoons Goofy did with Donald Duck ("No Sail" and "Crazy with the Heat") in 1945 and '47, respectively (probably saved for a later Donald Duck collection in the DT series).Read more ›
How to Ride a Horse (1941), El Gaucho Goofy(1943), Freewayphobia (1965),Goofy's Freeway Trouble (1965), And Sport Goofy in Soccermania (1987).
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.Read more ›
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.
ANY OTHER CARTOONS STARRING GOOFY OTHER THAN THE LIST BELOW
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.Read more ›
