Double Dribble (1946) Poster

It's the big college basketball game; everyone playing looks like Goofy, and he's the only fan of the visiting team P.U.

| P.U. vs. U.U. with Goofies
Goofy is a great character. He is very funny and appealing, and can work very well on his own. Here he takes on the sport of basketball and does so to amusing enough results. Double Dribble is one those shorts of his that is fun and amusing, but not hilarious. The best laughs come from the small Goofy, who is funny and very cute, and I did like how simple the gags were and how the players reacted to one another. There is a running gag however of the Goofs when doing the jump ball that they slapped one another, it was amusing to begin with but got repetitive and tiresome. The story is also routine, with the format and some of what we see quite familiar to us from other Goofy shorts. And while Goofy is still appealing and lots of fun as multiple personalities, we don't see the real him coming out in Double Dribble. The animation is very nicely done though, it is fluidly drawn and the colours have life. The music is lush and characterful, while the narration, very well voiced also, does a good job at both entertaining and teaching. The story while familiar and routine does move swiftly, has a nice light tone and the ending shows a short that has heart and a little bit of a change from the laugh-a-minute visual gags and slapstick seen in shorts before. To conclude, nice and entertaining enough, but not one of Goofy's finest hours. 7/10 Bethany Cox
