How to Play Golf is a 1944 Goofy cartoon directed by Jack Kinney.

Plot

An analysis of the game of golf, the Goofy way.

Censorship

A scene where Goofy mimes shooting himself with his finger and somehow ends up actually shooting a bullet out of it is often edited out in TV showings.

Notes

  • When this short was released, The Film Daily called it "highly hilarious", and gave the following review:

"This, another of Walt Disney's Technicolor cartoons featuring the Goof, is a howl. While the narrator explains how properly to play golf, the Goof attempts to demonstrate. Naturally he does everything wrong, with superb results from a comedy point of view. The technique and animation are noteworthy indeed. Mark this down as a topflight booking of its kind."

The following scenes were cut from the short version due to time constraints:

  • The entire first third of the cartoon, with Goofy choosing a club, teeing up the ball, and learning to swing; it opens with Goofy hitting the golf ball to the hole in preparation for the putt.
  • Part of Goofy sizing up the elements in preparation for the putt with a bomb sight, while the narrator mentions "drift indication, lay of the land, [and] trajectory angle".
  • Goofy licking the tip of his pencil as part of his "mental calculation".
  • Goofy pretending to shoot himself with his finger over missing the putt.
  • Goofy incorrectly hitting the ball so that it lands in the rough, where he learns to "always play the ball where it lies".
  • Goofy's encounter with a lawn sprinkler as he tries to hit the golf ball from off of it.
  • The chase with the bull is shortened considerably; it cuts from the run-in with the number 7 flag to Goofy, the stick figure and the bull all arriving at "the 19th hole".
