Comments

From Ryan : This is one of my favorite Goofy cartoons. I especially enjoy the scene with the rhino (the only drawback is that the part where Goofy points the gun at the rhino has been deleted). Another part I laugh at is when the narrator says that they land on the Ivory Coast, which is actually made of piano keys.
From Jacob : This short is the best! I had it on "It's a Small World of Fun Vol. 1". And that sounds nice.
From Baruch Weiss : This is one of my favorite goofy cartoons. I loved the part where goofy rushes to his tent and quickly dresses (6 seconds to be exact) and reappeared with all his gear with his Goofy Smile.
From Mike : I agree with Baruch Weiss this is a good goofy cartoon, and the scene of him dressing real fast is funny. The scene of him hunting the rhino is very exciting.
From Al Galen : I saw this classic animated short in "The Roots of Goofy" and the summer vacation television special "Let's Get Away From It All". Gary Owens hosted both of them. These programs were on the air in the 1980s and 1990s. This cartoon appeared as a flashback in Father's Lion if you watch the Disney Cartoon Classics video "Happy Summer Days".
