[edit]

Synopsis: When Max makes an preposterous promise to a girl he has a crush on, his chances to fulfilling it seem hopeless when he is dragged onto a cross-country trip with his embarrassing father, Goofy.


Reaction: Not the deepest story out there, but there's lots of fun here and it's got a few very singable songs.

Random Trivia For This Title:

  • The character of Powerline is a mixture of [?] Prince and Michael Jackson.
  • During the song "On the Open Road' a limousine drives by and a character wearing a sequined white glove (supposedly Michael Jackson) is seen waving from the sunroof.
  • The costume worn by Powerline is a parody of the yellow HazMat costumes worn by [?] Devo, circa 1977/78.
  • HIDDEN MICKEY: During the Powerline Concert, Mickey Mouse can be spotted in the crowd in the lower left portion of the crowd shot immediately after the Stage manager is thrown into the DiamondVision screen. Also, Mickey Mouse can be spotted during the show in the auditorium, when Max flies towards Roxanne, in the left bottom corner, right after the camera focuses the whole room.
  • This film marks the only time that Star Trek has ever been directly referenced in a Disney film.
  • When Max is singing in the school auditorium, Roxanne's position changes from close to the stage to the back of the room. The reason the filmmakers did this was to give the illusion that all Max cares about is Roxanne and no one else.
  • The traveling pair who sing about the "week of rest and relaxation" during the song "On the Open Road" She is the Powerline singer Goofy bursts in on during "I2I" at the end of the movie, and if you pay attention, you will see the driver of her car's picture on her mirror. The driver is also seen unloading Max and Goofy in the instrument cases at the Powerline concert.
  • Throughout the film, Goofy is only referred to by his real name once - by Pete, when they meet at the latter's trailer. Otherwise, he's referred to as "Dad" (by Max), "Mr. Goof" (by Max's Principal), or just "Goof" (by Pete).
  • At one point in early production Steve Martin was considered for the voice of Goofy.
  • Although Jason Marsden is a talented singer, he did not perform the musical numbers in the film. It was out of Disney's concern that a Broadway-style musical actor should provide Max's singing voice instead. That actor was Aaron Lohr.
