If it's a Goofy How-To film, watch it!
During the 1940s, Disney Studios did a lot to make their star, Mickey Mouse, a nice guy...which means that these Mickey films of the era were generally a dull lot. In the 1920s and 30s, Mickey could be a bit of a jerk...but no more. At the same time, interestingly, all the aggression and nastiness Mickey used to show was dumped onto Goofy...which explains why I much preferred Goofy cartoons when I was a kid!
Of all the Goofy cartoons, the How-To films were generally the best. With no-stop and frenetic narration and silliness, these films are wonderful. My favorites include the one on playing hockey as well as the football short....but this gold short, "How to Play Golf", is quite enjoyable as well...and for many of the same reasons...violence, silliness and characters misbehaving themselves...and in this one you not only have Goofy but a bull and a stick man...all behaving like jerks! Great fun.
