Goofy's Back!
The beginning of this blog was a sad time for traditional hand drawn animation at Disney. I had just learned that their animation studio at MGM Orlando had closed and everything was moving to 3D. However, recently I had a chance to actually see a new cartoon in the theater, starring their best and most cartoony character - the Goof!

(follow the link and click the cartoon of Goofy for a clip)

What a great way to start off a new shorts program. If only other studios would follow their lead (hint Warner Bros) and revive the concept of cartoons on the big screen, going out to the movies could be extra fun. Ironically, the subject of the cartoon was hooking up a home theater.

If they're still out, go see National Treasure 2 or Enchanted for a chance to see this funny short.
