Goofy and the Pirate King

Happy 2013! My New Year’s Resolution is to finally write some serious, relevant, thought-provoking posts, and stop monkeying around with silly stuff.

Having said that, when looking at my Alien Encounter toys yesterday, I found another item from Disney’s defunct line of die-cast attraction vehicles. I was so fascinated by it, I had to write immediately.

"One root beer, one snowcone, please."

“One root beer, one snowcone, please.”

This is a generic Pirates of the Caribbean boat with Goofy and a buccaneer, having just left the A&W Drive-Thru. Or maybe I have the wrong restaurant. Seriously, that pirate looks extremely familiar. Where have I seen that face before?

"What be I offered for this winsome Whopper?"

“What be I offered for this winsome Whopper?”

I don’t believe it! It’s the long-awaited reunion of Goofy and the Burger King! There is a sitcom here, I tell you. Disney would make millions. Anyway, as I was saying about my New Year’s resolution… aw crap.

 

One thought on “Goofy and the Pirate King

  1. Oh, better far to live and die
    under the brave, black flag I fly
    Than ride around with a mug of grog
    In a tiny boat with a talking dog
