Comments

From Patrick Malone : This Goofy short-short is pretty predictable, but it still hangs together pretty well. Perhaps this type of short is best for the "extreme sports" angle as they seem to be able to cover ground pretty well in 90 seconds. Nothing special here, but not a complete dud either.
From J. D. Weil : This could have been good. But after seeing Robbie Knievel jump the Grand Canyon Thursday, anything that Goofy does in the way of extreme sports will pale next to it.
From Tom : I don't like this one either. It was all build up and it felt like no gags were made until the finale. OTOH this is only a 90 second short, so maybe it was for the best cause. Not that that's a reason for me to like it.
From Juan F. Lara : Nothing in this short caught my attention. The jokes were O.K. But what I most noticed was how closely this short followed the formula established by Skating the Half-Pipe. Another list of equipment, and aerial acrobatics at the point where Goofy did those quick changes in the previous GES short. Nice artwork for the cliff, though.
From Lee Suggs : Goofy is in fine form here driving a bicycle off a cliff and "parachuting" to the ground. Lots of great sight gags and an amusing if macabre ending. (Goofy's parachute ends up looks like a shroud.) Still a fun "ride".
From Philo & Gunge : My movie theater showed this before the previews when I saw "The Rugrats Movie". I was sort of impressed, but it wasn't really that great of a short. I rate it around a 6. The ending was funny though.
