Animator Eric Goldberg, best known for creating and supervising the animation of Genie and Aladdin, Phil in Hercules, and Louis in The Princess and the Frog – as well as directing Pocahontas – is back on the small screen as the director of the all new “Disney Presents Goofy in How to Stay at Home.” This collection of three hand-drawn shorts is streaming now on Disney+.
“Goofy is a great character,” says Goldberg. “One thing I love about him is that he’s always positive. He always comes up smiling.” That made him the perfect star for a series of 2D animated shorts about staying home during the pandemic. “Who better to give us a laugh about it than Goofy?”

Goofy’s back in “Disney Presents Goofy in How to Stay at Home,” a trio of all-new, hand-drawn animated shorts from Walt Disney Animation Studios. In these new shorts from acclaimed master animator/director Eric Goldberg (“Aladdin,” “Pocahontas,” “Fantasia/2000,” “Moana”) and Emmy®-winning producer Dorothy McKim (“Meet the Robinsons,” “Prep & Landing,” “Get a Horse!”), Goofy – the clumsy, charismatic and lovable Disney “everyman” character who has entertained audiences since his screen debut in 1932 – demonstrates how to make the best of challenging situations. Bill Farmer, the voice of Goofy since 1987, provides the familiar vocals for the character, and versatile actor, Corey Burton, is heard as the narrator. “Disney Presents Goofy in How to Stay at Home” from Walt Disney Animation Studios streams August 11 on Disney+.
