Some of the best and most useful examples of animation from my childhood
In the clip has to be some of the best heavy lifting and posture animation I have seen, the lines are fantastic as well as the great squash and stretch in the character, and its Goofy possibly one of my favourite characters of all time.The scene where he struggles to carry the package is spot on and the weight lifting is priceless.
I first saw this clip along with many more on a Goofy all star Olympic video that I got when I was a kid (which I still own). This gem covers many different sporting activities and history of the sport, which are great for reference and it just shows how comical animation works with the focus just on one single character for 45minutes.
If you ever get the chance check out some of the Olympic footage on youtube you won't be disappointed and may even find use for them in your current work. As we know the principal of animation stays the same from 2D to 3D and who best to study than Disney's finest.
