Goofy Presents The Art of Skiing

Posted By: The Ski Channel on August 18, 2009 10:58 pm

November 14th, 1941 — Goofy taught the world how to ski.

“Sometimes forward, sometimes backwards, but one way or another he makes it down the mountain.”  So said the show’s synopsis.

All of us can relate to Goofy skiing in one way or another.  There doesn’t seem to be a better word to describe everyone’s first attempt at skiing than “goofy”,  don’t you agree?  Truly, the only figure who can embody our initial experience on skis is none other than Goofy himself.

Click through and enjoy a few memorable Goofy stills from this episode, in order to watch the Disney ShortDie Kunst des Skilaufens”…”Lecon de ski”…”Konsten att åka skidor”…”The Art of Skiing”.

This particular short animation begins while “Goofy is sound asleep with hot pads, several blankets, and a bearskin rug to keep him warm.”

Superfluous, yes.  But “Needless to say.  Baby…it’s cold outside.”


*Die Kunst des Skilaufens – German
 Lecon de ski – French
 Konsten att åka skidor – Swedish
