Reviews and Comments

From Ryan :

This is one of my favorite Goofy cartoons. While seeing Goofy have problems with the car and finding a vacant motel can make a person feel sorry for him, it can also be quite humorous. For example, when Goofy stops by the front of a house (which is actually a shack), he walks in and lies down to sleep, a train comes by and Goofy rumbles out of the shack. A continuious gag in this short is when a trailer causes several problems for Goofy such as when one of the travelers throws a milk bottle onto the road and Goofy gets a flat tire.

From Michelle I. :

Two Weeks Vacation is one of my all-time favorite Disney shorts. Goofy sets out on the open road alone, and encounters one problem in his travels after another. In his search for a vacancy, he decides to spend the night in what appears to be a quaint cottage but is in fact a dilapidated shack, racked by night with the nearby passing of trains which seem to come straight at him. Add to that the cute but annoying trailer that always seems to be in his way, but turns out to trail behind a a car without a driver, and there are a few slightly creepy elements to the cartoon. But I think that's what I like best about it!

From Baruch Weiss :

This is one of my favorite Goofy cartoons as well. Some of my favorite parts are the lines "So long slaves" and "Ta Ta Trailer" and the ending where he ends up satisfied in jail!

From Kristen :

My family always loved this episode...especially as he is driving past all of the hotels saying: "No Vacancy , No Vacancy." It is one of the best episodes by far.

From Al Galen :

I saw this short in the 1992 Cartoon Classics video "Happy Summer Days" along with Father's Lion. The "No vacancy" signs were everywhere during the short. If you enjoy this Goofy cartoon, watch "A Goofy Movie". He and his son Max went on a summer vacation in this animated film. It is based on the 1990s television series "Goof Troop".
