The Art of Self Defense is a cartoon made by the Walt Disney Company in 1941.


After a brief history on the many different forms of manly arts through the years, Goofy demonstrates the different methods of boxing, as well as punching the bag and shadow boxing - literally - until finally he feels ready for the boxing ring.

Production notes

This cartoon was one of the very first to feature many replicas of Goofy at one time. The end of the short uses the Tarzan yell on the soundtrack.
