From Ryan :

This short features Louie the mountain lion. This time, however, he is co-starring with Goofy rather than Donald. I enjoy several fun gags such as when Donald and Louie are falling and each of them takes turns sitting in the hammock, reading the paper. It all works out at the end when Louie drags his tree that Goofy cut down back home with him. An acorn, however, drops on Goofy's lawn (which is actually on the roof of his condominium). Goofy plants this acorn and it instantly grows into a small, budding tree.

From Frank :

Normally I don't care much for Goofy, but this short is hilarious. I can sense a certain Looney Tunes influence here. Love it.

From Baruch Weiss :

This is a great short with great music done by Paul J Smith!

From Trae Robinson :

I really thought that Goofy and the Lion were a funny pair. Too bad the lion was only in two classic cartoons with Goofy. The Lion returned several years later in Goofy's Radio.

From Daniel :

Pure genius. In the midst of a long dry spell for Disney shorts, this is a classic which ranks amongst the very best. One has to go back to the legendary cartoons of the 30s and 40s to find this level of sheer invention. I defy any first-time viewer to guess what's going to happen next. The soundtrack, instead of just following the action, is full of humor of its own. Another delightful aspect of this short is the complex storyline (from city to country and back again, from low to high and... well, you'll see) and the brilliant ways the story men make it effortless to follow. One of the all time greats - simply hilarious.
