New Shorts “How to Stay At Home” Featuring Goofy Coming to Disney+

Goofy is going to be a star in three new hand-drawn animated shorts from Walt Disney Animation Studios. The shorts will offer funny insights on how to stay home including cookings skills, mask wearing skills and binge watching.

Work on these shorts started last fall when Eric Goldberg pitched the ideas and went onto to direct all three along with Bill Farmer coming back to voice Goofy.

These three shorts will be available on Disney+ beginning August 11th.

Goldberg says, ““There are so many stories of people saying they baked bread for the first time or they were learning to cook. And I know personally, I did indulge in binge watching! It affected all of us, but we’ve exaggerated certain things in these shorts; I don’t have as much trouble putting on a mask as Goofy does!”

More details about the three shorts were also given:

“Learning to Cook”

It’s a recipe for comedy and disaster when Goofy uses everything but the kitchen sink—along with any and all ingredients in his understocked pantry and refrigerator—to concoct something original and uniquely Goofy. “Goofy will always do something based on his own cracked logic,” says Goldberg. After the narrator explains that a master chef can make anything taste delicious using whatever they have on hand, Goofy is emboldened to do just that—even if it leads to a “bizarro food tower,” Goldberg says. “One of the great things about Goofy is that he always comes up smiling. It doesn’t matter if he makes a completely ridiculous mistake. It’s like, ‘Yes, I’m eating a piece of tin can with beans in it. Boy, this tastes great!’ So, you can always count on that character to keep smiling, no matter what.”

“Binge Watching”

Goofy sticks his neck out to show viewers what it means to be truly flexible when binge watching takes precedence over… well, just about everything! Goofy is remarkably able to multitask and juggle a variety of household activities simultaneously—in a way that only Goofy can. By the time he sits down to watch his favorite show, his gaze is fixated on the screen. “I thought it would be funny for Goofy to settle down with a slack-jawed expression and keep it there for the entire show,” says Goldberg. “Talking about it with Mark, I said, ‘His bottom half acts like Goofy; you’ve got to animate that part as if it’s Goofy, even though the top remains completely stationary.’’ Clean up and background artist Rachel Bibb had the most technically challenging job, says Goldberg, “because there are all sorts of takeovers to keep his head still and keep his body moving, putting down the glass and putting pizza in his mouth. It was very technically oriented, and Rachel was great at keeping that straight.”

About Jennifer Retzlaff

My name is Jennifer Retzlaff and I became a lifelong Disney fan during my first trip to Walt Disney World in 6th grade. From that moment, Disney became a big part of my life. I live in Iowa with my husband and two kids who are growing up too quickly for my liking. I started introducing my love for Disney early to my family with a Disney honeymoon and then trips when our youngest of 18 months. Since then, our family has been to Walt Disney World over five times and we continue to plan and dream for the next trip. I love the magic that Disney brings to people through the theme parks, cruises, adventures and movies they create. As a teacher, I try to bring that magic into my classroom to help kids believe that “If You Can Dream It, You Can Do It.” I recently reached a dream of mine as I joined Magic Vacation Planner as a personal travel advisor. With this team, I can now help others plan magical vacations. As a passionate writer, I also have my own blog at magicalvacationsbyjen which is also where you can follow me on instagram for trip reviews along with tips and tricks for your next magical vacation.
