A great deal of the humour comes from the personalities of Goofy
and Dolores. They both care about each other, but Goofy must make the
elephant do something she does not want to, i.e take a bath, while she
does everything she can to get out of it. They both display a degree
of cunning which is a lot of fun to watch.
I find the funniest part to be when Dolores disguises herself as
a clown and Goofy greets 'him' with a "Good morning, Sir!", not finding
the fact that this clown is preposterously enormous strange in the least!
Soon after, Dolores fills his clothes with water from a hose, giving
him a hugely bloated appearance. Poor Goofy can't quite work out what's
going on and scratches his head saying, "Sumthin' wrong here!". This
phrase was one of Goofy's catchphrases in the classic shorts, but he
never seems to say it in his more recent appearances on screen. This
is a pity because this saying demonstrates how Goofy is often not quite
able to realise what is going on around him, which is a key part of
Loved his song and dance at the beginning. Just another example of
why Goofy rocks.
The water inflation bit fascinated me. Ever since I saw it when I
was like 2 or 3-I've longed to be the first to do it to a female character.
Makes me wonder why Disney hasn't reused it on one yet. Oh how great
it'd be to see a girl like Gadget going through the same trouble!
