Bonus Features

  • Frank and Ollie... and Mickey: A fascinating interview between Maltin and two of the most legendary Disney artists of all time, Frank Thomas and Ollie Johnston.

There's also a short that was created by Disney exclusively for these clubs: a sing-along to "Minnie's Yoo Hoo" with Mickey Mouse, complete with a second verse.

The Complete Goofy


This set provides a look at all of the Goofy cartoon shorts except for How to Ride a Horse (1941) (although a clip from it appears in the introduction, and the original theatrical poster is included in the Disc 2 gallery), El Gaucho Goofy (1943) (a segment from the package film Saludos Amigos), Freewayphobia #1 (1965), Goofy's Freeway Trouble (1965), and Sport Goofy in Soccermania (1987).

Note also that "Donald & Goofy" shorts Polar Trappers (1938), The Fox Hunt (1938), Billposters (1940), No Sail (1945), Frank Duck Brings 'em Back Alive (1946), and Crazy with the Heat (1947) are instead included on The Chronological Donald, Volume 1, Volume 2 and Volume 3, respectively, because they have always been put under Donald Duck's filmography instead of Goofy's.

In addition to the commentary provided by Leonard Maltin for some of the galleries on Disc 2, Goofy himself (voiced by Bill Farmer) provides some comments on others.

125,000 sets produced.

Disc One

  • Bonus Features
    • The Essential Goof: Using a montage of clips from the various Goofy shorts on this set, the analysis of the character, as spoken by the one who originally drew him, Art Babbitt (who also created the Big Bad Wolf and the balletic mushrooms in Fantasia) is repeated here. You can view the entire analysis on the article on Goofy by clicking here. Incidentally, Art's narration is actually spoken by Earl Boen.
    • The Man Behind the Goof: A mini-biography about the original voice of Goofy, Pinto Colvig. This biography reveals that in his youth, Colvig loved to travel with the circus, where he'd perform as a clown. He spent much of his life at Disney where in addition to voicing Goofy, he'd also voiced Pluto, the Practical Pig, the Grasshopper in The Grasshopper and the Ants (where Colvig, as the grasshopper, sang "The World Owes Me a Livin'", which he'd later add to Goofy) and two of the Seven Dwarfs (specifically, Grumpy and Sleepy). He also left Disney temporarily to voice Gabby at Max Fleischer's studios, but later returned to Disney where he'd spend the rest of his life voicing Goofy. He also was the original Bozo the Clown for Capitol Records on records, radio and television.

Disc Two

  • Bonus Features
    • A Conversation With Goofy's Voice: Bill Farmer: As the title implies, Maltin interviews the present voice of Goofy, Bill Farmer, who had been voicing Goofy since 1986. Farmer reveals his origins and how he came to voice Goofy. It is revealed that Farmer had voiced Goofy in more than 3000 different Disney projects, not only cartoons, but also albums, telephones, commercials and many others.
    • Poster Gallery: Many of the posters of the Goofy shorts are presented here. Curiously, Maltin does not provide commentary as he usually does on the sets; instead, it's Goofy who provides the occasional comment/exclamation.
    • Memorabilia Gallery: This gallery shows off various Goofy memorabilia, such as books and albums. Maltin does do the commentary here.
    • Goofy Through the Years Gallery: This gallery reveals storyboard sketches, animation drawings and background paintings of many of the Goofy shorts presented. Again, Maltin does not provide commentary; once again, it's Goofy.

  • A Trip Through the Walt Disney Studios (1938): This short film, made by Disney from the request of Disney's distributor at the time, RKO Radio, was included on the Snow White Platinum DVD. This film talks about the promoting of the film in general, as well as give an inside look on the inner workings of the Disney Studio, which back in the 1930s was on Hyperion Avenue.

  • How Walt Disney Cartoons Are Made (1939): This film, also released as part of the Snow White DVD, is a more family-friendly version of A Trip Through the Walt Disney Studios, as well as be used as an even bigger way of promoting Snow White.
  • The Reluctant Dragon: The crown jewel of this disc, this film shows off actor and humorist Robert Benchley as he wanders the new and improved Disney Studios in Burbank to try and sell Walt the idea of making a film of Kenneth Grahame's book, The Reluctant Dragon. He explores an art class, dialogue stage, sound effects stage, multiplane camera department, the paint department and finally, the story and animation departments until finally he discovers Disney has finished the cartoon version of his story.
  • Bonus Features
    • Leonard Maltin's Studio Tours: Actually, Maltin does not provide a tour of the studio; instead, he provides a history of the place, from the days of the Alice Comedies right up to the present day.
    • Behind the Boards of Baby Weems: A rare interview with long-time Disney storyman and artist Joe Grant. Maltin discusses how Grant got his start at the studio and the unusual story-reel format of the "Baby Weems" short seen in The Reluctant Dragon. Grant reveals that "Weems" and the "Dragon" shorts from the film were both originally considered for full-length theatrical releases, but ultimately didn’t warrant the longer running time.

    • Studio Gallery: A gallery showing off photos of the old Hyperion lot.

Disc Two

  • The Story of the Animated Drawing: On this 1955 episode of the Disney anthology series, Walt serves as the delightful host as he discusses the history of animation from the days of the caveman to the days of some primitive mechanical animation contraptions in the 1800s that were used to experiment with the art form. Then it moves on to more advance types of animation experiments, such as in J. Stuart Blackton's Humorous Phases of Funny Faces, Winsor McCay's Gertie the Dinosaur and even a demonstration of how music was synchronized into cartoons way back in the early days of the cinema.
  • The Plausible Impossible: On this 1956 episode of the anthology series, Walt explains how his animators make the impossible seem realistic through various cartoons with Mickey and Donald. This episode also includes a pencil-test form of one scene from Snow White that was ultimately not used in the final film.
  • Tricks of Our Trade: On this 1957 episode of the anthology series, Walt dwells on how animators study real life to create their illustrations. Examples are given from Fantasia on following a live ballerina to draw the animals' movements in Dance of the Hours, and copying actual bubbles to produce the boiling lava in The Rite of Spring. The groundbreaking multiplane camera is shown off, demonstrating how it is used to mimic real landscapes, since plain animated backgrounds seem to be too plain and create a false effect.
  • Bonus Features
    • Kem Weber Gallery: This gallery has architectural concept art for the Burbank lot.
    • Tour of the Disney Studio: This is a rare half-hour radio broadcast from Australia in 1946, in which studio personnel Homer Brightman, Harry Reeves, Eric Larson and Walt himself offer general information on the making of the animated films at the time.
