Awwww yeah! It's the GREATEST MOVIE EVER MADE - Ladies and Gentlemen, it's time to STAND OUT and hit THE OPEN ROAD with...A GOOFY MOVIE! Do you think I like this movie? Yeah. Yeah I do! This movie not only has obviously great music, but it also has so much heart! The relationship between Goofy and Max is just the kind of family love and strife that we all go through, especially as moody teenagers. I mean, yeah, Goofy is, well, goofy, and Pete really makes him panic. At the end of the day though it is all motivated by love and only Goofy would crash a Powerline concert and pull off the perfect dance to impress the crowd. The music is just so catchy, so energizing, so fun. As much as I love Powerline, The Open Road may actually be the best song. Its so perfect and it has Mickey for half a second! This movie just speaks to me. It is amazing! I will try to answer your questions since I am an expert on all things A Goofy Movie. 1. This movie is based on the Disney Afternoon cartoon Goof Troop. Max was aged slightly because the voice actor who played him in the show actually passed away, so they made him a teen to explain the voice change. In the show they are Goofy and Max Goof. Now, Goofy may just be a nickname based on his last name, like "Sully", but it's his only name ever, so I mean, yeah. 2. The populace of this world are generally dogs, but not always. In fact, classically Big Pete is a cat. No kidding! That's why he was a Mickey Mouse villain - what do mice run from? Anyway, I think dog is a good baseline, but like DuckTales, where there are anthropomorphic ducks, various other waterfowl, and also dogs, but sometimes another creature sneaks in there. They are what they are I guess - cartoons. 3. This movie was not made by Walt Disney Animation Studios, but rather DisneyToon (or whatever it was called at the time), the company that made television animation and many of the direct-to-video movies. This movie shows what they can do when given a theatrical budget! They also did DuckTales The Movie since that was also a Disney Afternoon spin-off. This doesn't really count as a "Renaissance" film in that regard, despite the fact that it is better than all of them combined! So, on your scale of 1 to 10, with 1 being The Black Cauldron and 10 being The Lion King, I give A Goofy Movie a 1,000,000 for being an absolute delight and as I once told the actual Goofy at Tusker House, "The Citizen Kane of movies." Goofy did not react, but his handler sure did!
