Motor Mania: Goofy on Road Rage
disney | from the vaults | retro | June 11, 2015
This 1950 short cartoon from Disney is an offbeat entry into the world of automotive educational films. For starters, Motor Mania is animated, and both its protagonist and antagonist are played by Goofy.
Goofy plays an everyday fellow named Mr. Walker, but he turns into a jackass named Mr. Wheeler once he takes the wheel, hogging the road, swearing at other drivers, and throwing hissy fits. But what makes it interesting is how its message about turning into a complete jerk when you’re behind the wheel of your car holds true today. Seriously folks, take it down a peg when you’re on the road – you’re not the only one out there.
