The goal of this blog is to help people identify the many wonderful (and then not so wonderful) animators from the Golden Age of cartoons. Check back every day for more fun!

I love the Disney cartoon "Goofy Gymnastics". The last minute of this one is about as wild as cartoons from Disney got. I believe Woolie Reitherman animated the bulk of the violence since it looks like his work in other shorts. John Sibley most likely animated most of the shots before the chaos ensues. Both were well-known around the studio for their animation of Goofy. While wild, this has a great bit of subtlety in it, with Goofy realizing his ass is slamming against the ground, so he covers it to soften the blow!
