SUMMARY: Two teams of Goofys take each other on in a College Football game.

WHY IT’S HERE: By the time of ‘How to Play Football’ the Goofy How To… shorts had established themselves as a very popular series and with this excellent entry the series found itself nominated for a best Animated Short Oscar. The formula had been established and ‘How to Play Football’ does not do anything particularly different with it but crucially the jokes are still consistently funny and beautifully timed even after several similar cartoons. A series that could have easily fallen back on repetition continued to go from strength to strength and Goofy continued to grow into Disney’s most intriguing and versatile star.
