The Art of Self Defense
USA, 1941

TV-series Walt Disney's Goofy

Directed by Jack Kinney


Goofy takes a lighthearted look at self defense through the ages, with the cavemen, the ancient Egyptians, Medieval knights, the age of chivalry and 19th and 20th century boxing. The Egyptians, we learn, used to poke each other in the eye as a means of self defense.

Episode from the 1940's Goofy "How to..." cartoons in which Goofy demonstrates how to do just about everything, clumsily but always determined and never frustrated.
