The Goal Rush (track #26 on The Cartoons That Time Forgot: The Ub Iwerks Collection, Vol. 2 DVD (Image Entertainment, 1999)). [Category: Hollywood]

Apparently, Flip the Frog played football during his college days (what, you mean you didn't know he went to college?). This leads to some standard football gags, but about halfway through they run out of those and then the real fun begins. The weirdest moment happens when Flip and the ball somehow end up on a nearby farm and the ball strikes up a relationship with a mama sow and starts nursing her like all the other little piglets! This one is unexpectedly inspired.

Ratings: Camp/Humor Value: ****. Weirdness: ****. Historical Interest: ****. Overall Rating: ****.
