Disney's lovable superstar Goofy is back in his very own show! You'll howl with laughter as Goofy and his son Max find themselves up to their necks in the kind of mishaps that made their family famous. Whether diving for b... more »uried treasure or appearing in the "World's Most Painful Home Videos," Goofy and Max know that no matter how badly things go awry, they will always have each other. With three of the most hilarious Goof Troop episodes, it's easy to see why Goofy is the first name in comedy.« less
"This DVD release for Goof Troop is very disappointing, especially considering Disney's recent, multi-disc DVD sets for Rescue Rangers and Duck Tales. Instead of those types of set we get a stripped down, single disc release with a mere three episodes on it. Goof Troop of course features the adventures of long-time star Goofy and his son max, a typical, rebellious kid. Also in the cast is long time Goofy foil Pete, his wife Peg, and their son P.J. In all Disney made 78 epidodes of the series so to give fans merely three is perplexing at best.
The shorts are "Slightly Dingy" in which Max and PJ go fishing with their dads and the dads wage a contest to see who the better fisherman is...
"Wrecks, Lies, and Videotape" Max hopes to win a trip by sending in home video of his dad to The Worlds Most painful Home Videos.
"Shake, Rattle, and Goof" Pete and Max try to form a band but their dads interfere.
The shorts are OK but hardly the best the show has to offer. The toon's don't look like they've been enhanced in the least from their original TV appearances, only making this offering seem all the more cheap."

How Cheap of Disney

"This was a great Disney serial that my boys (now young men) watched when they were little. I have to agree with a previous reviewer who stated their displeasure that Chip and Dale's Rescue Rangers and Duck Tales Volumes 1 were released as 27 episodes and Goof Troop and Quack Pack are set to be released as 6 episodes. Disney should go for the full meal deal or not release the dvd at all: this gives the consumer a real price comparable to $67.50 retail where the other two came in at around $40. Who's getting goofed? The consumer. Do it right or don't bother!"
I don't get it

"Releasing 27 episodes for a volume 1 of the Rescue Rangers was a good idea... why is volume 1 of goof troop only 6 episodes? Do they not plan to release this show much at all?"
Why, Disney? Why?

"As a child, I grew up watching The Disney Afternoon. Goof Troop was always one of my favorite shows of the bunch, and Goofy still stands as my favorite Disney character ever.
That said, I was extremely disappointed by this DVD. It only contains 3 episodes, like the Quack Pack DVD released on the same day, while the previously released Duck Tales and Rescue Rangers sets had 27. That's 1/9 of the episodes for about 1/2 the price. Adding more insult to injury, the Darkwing Duck and TaleSpin sets released since had 25 episodes. It almost makes me regret spending $10 on this disc. It just screams "rental."
Still, I have faith that with the release of Darkwing Duck, TaleSpin, and Gummi Bears on DVD, as well as second helpings of Duck Tales and Rescue Rangers, Disney will give Goof Troop, as well as Quack Pack, the DVD treatment it deserves. Until then, I'll just have to be optimistic and view this disc as the mouse's way of testing the waters to see if fans of the show will go for it on DVD."
