    new Goofy short before National Treasure 2

    I just got back from a showing of National Treasure - Book of Secrets. I thought you might like to know that the new Goofy short - "How to Hook Up Your Home Entertainment Center" - was played immediately before it. I don't know if it'd appeared anywhere else previous to this, but it was the first time I saw it. It was very nostalgic for those of us who remember the classic Goofy "How To" shorts. And there were more than a few Hidden Mickey's in it as well.

    It was pretty cute! It was way better than watching commercials for Axe cologne or Pontiac cars.
    Very nostalgic.

    I thought it was cute. It would have been cuter if it hadn't been after way too many previews!

    I agree. However, I really enjoyed it because DH was sitting right next to me and I think he has the same reaction to HIS big screen TV as goofy did.

    I was ready for the movie to start, but I was excited to see the Goofy short. My brother and I had fun pointing out the hidden mickeys and references to other Disney related things. We also enjoyed the movie.

    My entire family howled through the whole thing. Mr. iwbm could have written the thing! In fact, Goofy looked so much like Mr. iwbm hooking up OUR entertainment center it was uncanny!

    I can't remember other Mickeys. I would have to watch it again. The other things I can remember right now was the picture of Walt Disney sitting on the tv, and the fish was Cleo from Pinocchio.

    The serial number of the TV on the crate it came in was something like M1CK3Y, and there was a reference to Dopey on the crate as well.

    Finally saw Enchanted, and I gotta say I still love the new way they show the castle before Disney movies. Very majestic. I wonder if I can find it online?
