Double Dribble is a Goofy short released on December 20, 1946.


The Goofies of Polytechnic University take on the Goofies of University U. in a full court basketball frenzy.



  • A scene where the referee shoots holes in the floor to keep the players behind the foul line was cut out whenever this short aired on The Ink and Paint Club. Also cut were scenes showing the coach smoking his cigars.
  • As with the other Goofy team sport shorts, the players have names of Disney people. In this short, they include (Bill) Berg, (Jack) Hannah, (Yale) Gracey, (John) Sibley, (Milt) Banta, (Hugh) Fraser, (Ralph) Wright and (Jack) Kinney.
  • Much of the animation of the nervous coach and some of the music is reused from How to Play Football.

  • The coach smokes a bunch of cigars at the same time. While doing that, he puts his head back in his own self. Once he puts his head up again, there is only one cigar.
