How to Play Golf (1944) Directed by: Jack Kinney
A "basic outline" assists Goofy in learning how to play golf.
Disney's How to Play Golf is unique because it could really only be captured well enough within the boundaries of animation. It concerns Goofy, who has decided he wants to take up golf as a hobby but can't quite seem to get the basic essentials of the game down. Frustrated that his grip on the golf club is flawed and his techniques are flawed, the short's narrator Fred Shields allows Goofy's basic character outline to assist him in the proper way to golf by showing specific ways to position yourself, swing, and learn the fundamental rules of the game. The short is surprisingly hilarious because its humor is derived from the classic Disney silliness many of us grew up with. How to Play Golf works both as a farcical cartoon and an informative instructional video on how to play golf. Throw in terrifically fluent and colorful animation for the time, 1944, and the lead character who never fails to disappoint and you have one of Disney's funniest shorts on record.
Directed by: Jack Kinney.
