Disney/Pixar Animated Short Reviews: #17 Goofy and Wilbur 1939 7 out of 10

Goofy and Wilbur  1939    7 out of 10

Goofy and Wilbur from 1939 was Goofy's first solo starring role after appearing in numerous cartoons with Mickey and Donald.   In his first solo effort Goofy and his cricket pal Wilbur go fishing.  Wilbur lures the fish into Goofy's net and actually is the focus of most the cartoon until he gets swallowed by a frog which leads Goofy on a wild chase to rescue his little friend.  The cartoon has heart in the connection and friendship between Goofy and his pal and a sense of fun as well.   A good solid first outing for my personal favorite of the Disney Fab Five.

This cartoon can be found on the Walt Disney Treasures  DVD  The Complete Goofy.   (which collects all of the Goofy starring cartoons)
