Goofy "How To Play Baseball"


Added 10 years ago

Cover art, photos and screenshots

A narrated film explaining the fine points of playing baseball as demonstrated by Goofy (and various Goofy lookalikes). We are introduced to some of the pitcher's various throwing styles such as the "spitball", the "slowball", and the "screwball". Finally the day of the big game arrives and the crowd and the players are both tense. After much confusion, the game climaxes when members of opposite teams both make a run for first base. The umpire declares one of them out and ultimately a free-for-all ensues. And that is how to play baseball, the narrator explains.

"DIR: Jack Kinney SUMMARY: A narrator takes us through the game of baseball, as demonstrated by teams in which every player is depicted as Goofy. WHY IT'S HERE: Goofy's handful of solo outings up to this point had been somewhat unusual and when Pinto Colvig, the man behind Goofy's distinctive voice, fell out with Disney and left the studio for several years, it lead indirectly to the famous 'How To...' series of cartoons which changed the nature of Goofy for years to come.
