| One of the very best of the How To cartoons...
Not only that, one of the best sports cartoons and one of Goofy's best. Hockey Homicide is perhaps the very best of the Goofy sports cartoons, but How to Play Football is one of the finest examples also. The animation is colourful and fluid as one would anticipate, and the music when it's played is full of energy and makes the audience part of the exciting atmosphere that you get playing sports(or even performing in a concert for that matter). The story, which focuses on college football at its most dominant, is simple and always exciting. But the stars of How to Play Football, other than the deliciously sardonic narration and the gag that the crowd ignore the narration giving a sense that the rules aren't important to them, were Goofy and the gags. How to Play Football is full to the brim with gags(mostly sight gags), and all of them hilarious and on target. Goofy is seen in several personalities, as a wily coach, pampered star player, brutish lineman and silly kicker, all in the same character design, and I found it both interesting and amazing at the same time. All in all, if you love cartoons and sports you will find How to Play Football a treat(I'm not the biggest sports fan but find the How to sports cartoons brilliant on the whole). 10/10 Bethany Cox
