How to Play Baseball 1942 9 out of 10
This entry in the "Goofy How to Series" is a classic. It starts out by explaining the sport of baseball and shows a variety of different types pitches in a funny way. The cartoon then goes into the ultimate baseball game scenario in which it is the ninth inning of the world series. Through a series of entertaining moments the bases get and the game (and the cartoon) comes to an exciting conclusion as it all boils down to a close call at the plate.
The sports direction was a perfect way to go with Goofy as his tall lanky and often clumsy form lent itself perfectly for this parodies of modern sport. The baseball cartoon was a blueprint for the many great Goofy cartoons that followed.
This cartoon can be found on the Walt Disney Treasures The Complete Goofy DVD Set.
