Disneyland through Goofy's Eyes

Garsh! Look out for that crocodile!

Who knew such a phrase would entice me to visit Disneyland. It makes sense, though. Visit hot attractions and sites in part 1 of this 1991 video tour of Disneyland. Your guides? Mickey and the gang of course. It's not cheesy and uncool like you may think. I laughed and smiled a lot when I first watched this.

But it's more then entertainment. The purpose of the video is of course to get the audience to come to Disneyland. The tour of the jungle cruise attraction with Goofy is my favourite. I think it works because Goofy isn't really a tour guide. He takes the tour as a regular visitor, so we see everything new and exciting from his perspective. Well, not quite. He reacts to everything as if it's real! Hilarious, but it also aligns with the Disney theme of fantasy: everything is real if you use your imagination. The cruise would be so much more fun if you took it with Goofy, right?

They should have a segment of Goofy on a roller coaster. Can you imagine? "Yaaaaahahahoooooey! Garsh!"

Part Two Part Three


  1. I am a sucker for this kind of thing! I also smiled through it all!

  2. Thanks for the compliment on my blog design. To customize the header like I did you have to make a banner/header in a photo editing program. I use GIMP a free downloadable knock off of Photoshop. Then you edit the header under design and choose picture instead of text, then upload the banner you made from your computer. If you want to try it and that makes no sense let me know and I'll try to explain it better. :D

  3. Bossy - I'm glad you enjoyed it! I am such a sucker too. Disney has made waaaay too much money off of me!

    Achieve - Thanks so much! I have Photoshop, so maybe I'll give it a try.
