Storyboards from Goofy's The Olympic Champ

   With everyone excited about (or apathetic about?) the winter Olympics I thought I'd pull these nuggets from the Story volume of the Disney Animation Archive Series.  The storyboards show our favorite Goof getting into his regular clumsy antics, though as always he starts out so elegant!
   I've included the original 1942 short as well…because it is much more entertaining than the real Olympics.

   I love both scenes represented.  Poor Goofy…why would he even attempt the hurdles?  Did he think that would end any other way than disastrous?  :)
