Reviews and Comments

From Ryan :

Goofy is a private eye who is hired by a bride to locate the missing Al whom she is to marry. The sheriff in this cartoon looks and sounds like Pete, but in Pete's filmography section of The Encyclopedia of Disney's Animated Characters, this cartoon is not listed. Nevertheless, I am pretty sure that is Pete. This is one of those cartoons where Pete portrays a good guy (others include The Barn Dance, Symphony Hour, and The Chain Gang). Pete is always telling Goofy to "leave this case to the police." This cartoon is not shown (at least in the U.S.) anymore, probably because of all the extremely violent scenes.

From Pauline :

This is my favorite Goofy cartoon short! It has great gags, mystery, and just plain goofiness! It's also cool 'cause the red head chick's name is Pauline. Same as mine.

From Sam :

This hilarious cartoon seamlessly combines the classic Goofy persona with fast-and-furious gags that seem more like those of the Looney Tunes or Tex Avery than Disney's usual style. Although extremely violent at time, the short's great humor and a fast pacing make it one of the funniest Disney shorts of it's time.

From Baruch Weiss :

As Ryan has pointed out this short is not shown anymore. In general all of the Disney shorts are not shown anymore and that upsets me. Anyway watch this film closely and you will see "Mickey Mouse "on the front cover of the comic book that Goofy is reading.
