This summer, we're getting honest about summer blockbusters past and present. This is Honest Trailers: Blockbuster Summer.
Now that you've finished The Mandalorian on Disney+, given up on Artemis Fowl after ten minutes, and put Zenimation on in the background while you text (text sound effects), it's time to squeeze the last bit of value out of your seven bucks a month by revisiting the low-budget spin-off of a syndicated Disney Afternoon show (Goof Troop), that clocks in under 80 minutes with credits, yet is one of the best films of an otherwise soft era for the Big D. Sorry, Dinosaur; at least you only cost-- (an IMDbPro page pops up showing Dinosaur's budget of $127.5 million) Wow. $127 million, in 20-years-ago money. All righty, then.
A Goofy Movie
Welcome to the world of Goofy, where the fish are fish, the birds are birds, and everyone else is somewhere on the spectrum between dog, cat, and man, where you'll see slapstick legend Goofy like you've never seen him before: a suburban dad desperately trying to connect with the son who hates him!
Goofy: What the heck you tryin' to do?
Max: Trying to get away from you!
What kind of hyukked-up kids' movie is this?! (montage of Goofy hyukking)
Every teenager thinks their parents are the most embarrassing people in the world, but only Goofy's son Max can make a solid case for it.
Max: (as Goofy forces him to dance in front of a crowd) Dad, stop! Please! Dad, look, this is embarrassiiiing!
He's out to ditch his dad and get with Roxanne, a girl he's never spoken to...
Max: She finally says "hi" to me...
...but puts on a pedestal, and is so thirsty for, he literally sees her in the water. Eh, can't blame him; the mid-90's were a golden age for animated love interests. (Roxanne, Lola Bunny from Space Jam, Gadget from Chip 'n Dale: Rescue Rangers, Goliath from Gargoyles) Together, this Goof Troop will set off on a road trip across a post-apocalyptic mirror dimension that's geographically identical to our own, and bond as they narrowly avoid committing vehicular homicides (montage of reckless driving), kill a mime (a piano falls on a mime as Goofy mimes cutting scissors), and rescue Max's best friend from his abusive dad...?
P.J.: If my dad catches me with this, he'll kill me. / If my dad finds out, it's gonna nuke my entire existence. / My dad is gonna smash me like a bug...
Uh-oh. ...in a film that teaches us the importance of clear and honest father-son communication. But since it has the same screenwriter as Aladdin (Brian Pimental), it also teaches us how lying to girls just makes them like you more.
Aladdin: I really am a prince.
Max: My dad, um... knew... knows! Knows Powerline!
Oh, hyukk off! (montage of Max hyukking)
So buckle up for the Disney adventure with the biggest heart and the lowest stakes, where, instead of rescuing a kingdom or breaking an ancient curse, the hero must endure spending time with an actually... alive... parent -- Speaking of which, where is Max's mom, anyway? -- full of amazing songs from Tevin Campbell as Powerline...
Powerline: (singing) And maybe love is the reason why...
...skippable songs from Goofy...
Goofy: (singing) Do you long to shed your weary load?
...and the exact amount of Pauly Shore before it gets obnoxious.
Bobby: Look. It's the Leaning Tower of Cheese-a. Huh. (gulps it down)
That's it! Stop right there! Perfect! Not a second more!

Pete Junior Pete? And His Dad is Pete Pete? How Did Their Civilization Last This Long? (Rob Paulsen as P.J.); Kelly Kapupski (Kellie Martin as Roxanne); Skipping School? Inconceivable!

Mad Max: Furry Road Trip
So... are we going to talk about how they're being followed by nuns everywhere they go?
Nuns: (singing) They're partners forever, westward ho! Yee-haw! (close-up, fade to red, sinister sting)
