Comments

From Ryan : Here is another short with Goofy and his son. This time they are camping up in the mountains and have a run-in with Louie the mountain lion. There is a small scene where Goofy shoots at the mountain lion that is censored when shown on the Disney Channel/Toon Disney. It goes from the scene of Goofy and his son searching around a tree to a scene where the mountain lion lands on Goofy and the tree has been damaged; an example of Disney's tendency to go overboard with their censorship. This is a humorous cartoon that I enjoy watching frequently.
From Baruch Weiss : One of my favorite parts in this cartoon is where Goofy and his son are driving and Goofy recalls his past adventures which were scenes taken from previously released Goofy cartoons from 1945 titled Californy 'er Bust, Tiger Trouble and African Diary. I also enjoy the ending where he asked his kid "Did I ever tell you about the time I was a race driver?"
From Adam : Excellent , magnificent , one of the funniest and best Cartoon I've ever seen, I can remember when I saw the cartoon for the first time I laughed in such a way that I couldn't see rest of it. I wish the company can continue this quality.
