Garsh! Every dog has his day, and Goofy is at long last getting his in this Walt Disney Treasures collections. One of Disney's most endearing animated stars, the Goofster stepped from behind Mickey's and Donald Duck's shadows with the 1939 cartoon "Goofy and Wilbur." Between 1939 and 1961, he evolved from a lovable, good-hearted simpleton into a 1950s Everyman. Fellow toon Roger Rabbit said it best in Who Framed Roger Rabbit: "Nobody takes a wallop like Goofy. What timing. What finesse. What a genius!" And here's proof -- 46 color cartoons that capture Goofy in all his slapstick glory. The best are the "how-to" cartoons, in which Goofy demonstrates a variety of sports, from swimming to hockey. Film critic and historian Leonard Maltin hosts this two-disc archival collection, which includes segments on Goofy's character development, a profile of the man who first gave Goofy his distinctive vocal personality, Pinto Colvig, and an interview with Bill Farmer, Colvig's successor. Also recommended for Disney and animation buffs are the two-disc sets Mickey Mouse in Black and White (which includes Goofy's scene-stealing debut in the 1932 cartoon "Mickey's Revue") and Behind the Scenes at Walt Disney Studio.
