As a kid I had the graphic novel, I loved it.

I thought you were NEVER going to review this…

(from his Top 11 Movies I’ll Never Review video)

He’s done a few of them lately.

If I remember some of his “I”ll never review” was because he had a rule about only doing films that were old enough or not doing one from series he just didn’t like or know.

Rezro
Guest

Yes, and he abandon that rule long time ago. Plus we have movies he simply couldn’t review because of lack of understanding or conclusive opinion before (and that is the case here).

RobbyB
Guest

His point with most of the Never Review list was that the movies just weren’t bad enough to mock, or he didn’t know the source material well enough to be fair.

With this and Cats Don’t Dance, he’s not doing a Critic teardown, but looking at instead to see why its so beloved. Different things.

Also he did the “never” list almost 7 years ago, mostly to stop people constantly asking for the same things. He’s allowed to change him mind. Linkara did for his never list too… though mostly just as specials for the 100th and 200th episode.

I think we call that list his todo list now adays

Face it, Powerline made the movie, 20 years after the fact. :p

This movie is STILL not available on Blu-Ray, or in any HD format, and that makes me sad.

Given this actually had a theatrical release and wasn’t originally mastered for SD TV/Video, that’s a real crime.

Keep doing commercials like that and I’m gonna have to buy some! Gotta get some of dat butt! I was seriously dying in my chair laughing so hard! I think the commercial is the best part of this one!

I remember seeing this movie in theaters in a friend’s birthday party, and I had a fun time seeing it, even when I later got the movie on VHS. I still hold it dear to my heart to this very day.

Shame on you, Doug, for making that Suicide Squad joke. Get in the corner.

As someone from Florida, thank you Doug.

Great now I need to grab my VHS copy and hook up my VCR, thanks Doug

Ay! This movie is childhood and this review is so retro. I love it. I never realized that Pauly Shore was in this. Lastly, I may check out Mott & Bow.

Well, we got a Ducktales reference. Not the one I was expecting, but one nonetheless. 😉

Of the Disney Trio, Mickey, Donald, and Goofy, Goofy is the only one we know for a fact has had sex. He also changes his name every few years to avoid paying taxes.

Honore de Ballsack
Guest

who did he have sex with? Mickey has Minnie, Donald has Daisy, where did Max come from?

Unvoiced_Apollo
Guest

Clarabelle. Yeah, wrap your mind around that one for awhile.

The Real Silverstar
Guest

Gloria ‘Glory’ B. from the comics or Mrs. Geef from the 1950s domestic themed shorts (where the Goof appears under the pseudonym G.G. Geef) are more likely candidates than Clarabelle, since Goof Troop and the Goofy movies came out before Disney started shipping Goofy with Clarabelle.

You’re correct. If I’m not mistaken before that she was usually paired off with Horace Horsecollar.

Emily Hill

Oh god I blocked out the scene of the corpse dancing on the herse

I love this movie~

JetZXV

I think it’s worth noting that Goofy isn’t married, which implies one of two things… either his relationship with the mother broke apart and Goofy was granted custody, or Goofy is a male widow who lost his wife many years prior. Dark either way you look at it.

Goldstar
Guest

It’s the latter, I believe. In an episode of Goof Troop, Goofy describes Max’s mother as “being among the stars”, or something similar. But, yeah, it’s pretty sad and likely so dark that the shows’ writers chose not to probe too deeply into it.

Also, when watching Goof Troop, did anyone else think that Peg should have been Goofy’s wife instead of Pete’s? The two of them had better chemistry.

turkeypedal

Sometimes I even misremember Peg as Goofy’s wife (when I’m trying to picture what she would be like).

Prince Kuro
Guest

I always thought Peg was trying to get with goofy when pete was away

I have to say, there were points in the movie looking back now, there was almost room for a shared universe idea. Particularly the casual tone Max uses when he thinks Donald Duck is going fishing with his dad. I am sure the creators of the Ducktales 2017 reboot must have seen this movie too or thought about it when they had a girl that strangely looks like a grown up Roxanne in the same waiting room as Donald.

Rezro
Guest

I hope that is the case. Also speaking of weird trivia. Disney is a character in Disney reality so that isn’t breaking forth wall. He is known there as Yen Sid.. seriously read that from opposite side.

archetype91
Guest

Well, the Ducktales 2017 reboot mentioned Spoonerville (the town where the TV series Goof Troop takes place in), as well as Cape Suzette (the city from TaleSpin) and Saint Canard (the city from Darkwing Duck). So I guess that means there’s a shared universe.

Goofy drives an AMC Pacer. That almost makes too much sense.

Steve the Pocket
Guest

I always thought it was a bit odd that they gave him a “real” car rather than some generic “toon car”. But I suspect it was so they’d have something to use as reference for the many, many times it’s on screen (especially the interior). There’s a lot of attention to detail in this movie like that.

Last December I did my own “Disney-Cember” thing on my blog. “A Goofy Movie” was one I labeled as a neglected comedy classic.

S.R. Hunt

I remember seeing this movie in daycare, but the only scene that stood out in my memory was the opening. It actually creeped little me out. Also, WHY IS EVERYONE SO MEAN TO OSWALD?! The only thing he appeared in recently was a Mickey Mouse cartoon, and even then it was a throw away gag. Literally, Mickey threw him in the trash.

CraziBastid

I can’t explain how others see this movie but it’s pretty special to me. Goofy was my dad’s favorite cartoon character and he took me to a really to a really fancy movie theater about fifty miles away from our hometown to see it. Growing up, I realized how much Max’s relationship with Goofy mirrors the one I had with my dad. My dad passed away in February of this year and I miss more than I was thought I would. I didn’t have the best relationship with him but this movie helps me remember all the great times we… Read more »

I still have no idea what Max “sings” when the background singers come in. Nor am I sure what he rap is. (around -15:25)

Also: Whoa, those jeans prices are high. I looked because I wanted to help you out, but even the specialty jeans I have to get to fit my big and tall frame are cheaper than those.

I hoped they might also have a budge jean that was closer to $30-$50, but nope.

I hope there are some people who are interested, but it’s too rich for my blood. Sorry.

Tevin Campbell, an RnB artist from the 90s, was Powerline. Go to YouTube and look up “Can We Talk”. That was the jam back in ’94, when I was in Jr High.

Doug, your commercials are awesome and hilarious.

I am still not buying jeans from Whatever Brand That Was That I Have Promptly Forgotten.

I’d love to watch the video but it keeps stopping

Hanglyman

I’ve traditionally had a strong dislike for anything Goofy-related (I find the whole humanish-faced dog person design really ugly and hard to deal with compared to everything else Disney has ever done- it reminds me of Rock and Rule), but the inclusion of a random singing zombie just may have won me over.

This adds to the right of this review are terrible. The Acura commercial continuously played audio on top of your video. I couldnt get through 2 minutes of your vid after hearing the Acura commercial some seven times. I hope these adds are not a trend or I exped most will just watch bootlegged review vids on Youtube.

Adds are not the same thing as ads. Ads are short for advertisements; add is something you do with numbers.

Now we wait for the extremely goofy movie review

Really happy about the positive review! And all the playful jabs at it don’t even bother me, because they’re all pretty true. I love this movie, and always will. I grew up with it, and to this day, I can watch it anytime and feel happy with it. It’s just that special.

Really glad you’re doing these simple reviews as Editorials. I’m enjoying them a lot more c:
