June 29th, 2014: Freewayphobia #1

Freeway Phobia #1

Cast and Crew:  Walt Disney (Producer); Paul Frees (Narrator)

What It’s About: Goofy (Pinto Colvig) demonstrates how not to drive on the highway.

Why Watch it Today?: Eisenhower signed the Federal-Aid Highway Act on this date in 1956, helping to ensure that America would become a car dominated culture.  Today’s classic Goofy short features annoyances that are still with us nearly 50 years after it was released in 1965.
