For years I've only been familiar with Jack Kinney through the god-awful Popeye cartoons he did for King Features in 1960s. What I didn't realize was that he worked as a director at Disney's, working on shorts. I now actually consider him to be one of my favorite animation directors; the Goofy cartoons he did were laugh out loud funny.
This is a good example. I love how it just escalates as the cartoon progresses, complete with what I consider to be one of the wildest cartoon endings I've ever seen. There's also many inside references to Disney staff (click here for a list). It makes me wonder if Al Bertino and Norm Ferguson had real-life animosity.
Here's another short from Kinney. This is also notable because it was co-written by Virgil Partch. VIP was a print cartoonist who appeared in Playboy and other magazines. He also had a few syndicated strips, most notably Big George. VIP worked at Disney for few years but found himself out after the strike. This was his only screen credit.
