Awesome / A Goofy Movie

A Goofy Movie

  • Undeniably the Concert Climax.
    • Of course, Goofy turning the Perfect Cast into a badass Dance Move that Powerline loves. And following it up by moonwalking.
    Max: Dad! Dad! Do the PERFECT CAST!
    • And we cant forget PJ and Pete catching the show on TV.
    PJ: They did it!!
    Pete: *Spit Take* *stares in shock*
    • On a relatively minor note, Powerline proves to be both very nice and professional in light of his concert's interruptions, as he manages to play along without missing any of his lyrical cues no matter how many surprises he gets.
  • The "On the Open Road" scene for Goofy himself. Getting an entire highway of drivers to join in on what started out as a Serendipitous Symphony ditty between him and his unenthusiastic son has to count for something. Hell, if getting a dead guy in a hearse to sing and dance along isn't awesome, I don't know what is.
  • The Zany Scheme of the film's for Max — He manages to turn a father-son camping trip into appearing on live television with (an Expy of) Michael Jackson.
  • Max using The Perfect Cast to save Goofy from falling down the waterfall.
  • Goofy telling Pete that while Max isn't everything he thinks a son should be, he loves Max and vice versa. Made even sweeter by the fact that Pete has been giving Goofy parenting advice all movie, but in responding does not and honestly cannot claim that PJ loves him. What was already a solid defense becomes a checkmate.
    Pete: My son respects me.
    Goofy: (shrugs) Yeah.
    Pete: (annoyed, glares back at Goofy) Check the map, Goof!
  • Max's stage show at the beginning was pure awesome. The simple fact that a trio of high schoolers could pull off a pretty sweet-looking show is nothing short of impressive. In-universe as well. He gets kudos from two of the cool kids and Lisa, the hottest girl in school, briefly flirts with him before being interrupted by Stacy.
  • Even better, Max not only gets kudos, but a crowd chant after leaving school, when at the start of the movie he was nearly a pariah. And on top of that it was started by PJ, who not only had the courage to start one, but also succeeded in getting others to join in, in spite of his place on the social totem pole. He must have been really happy for Max.
    • And he still got kudos even though his performance went south and he got in trouble. Max thought he made a complete fool of himself in front of the whole school, and expected everyone to make fun of him for it. Instead, they cheered him on because all that was important to them was how cool he was on stage.
  • A meta-example with this PERFECT live remake of After Today:
    • So perfect that it got aired at 2015's D23 Expo (At the panel "A Goofy Movie's 20th birthday").
  • Another meta-example at D23. The panel ended with a twitter question asking if the panel should end with a Powerline performance. Guess who showed up?

An Extremely Goofy Movie

  • "It's about staying focused...ON YOUR GOALS!"
  • Everything's Funkier with Disco, and the dance scene is nothing short of a Moment of Awesome for Goofy; Disco Dan gets the girl!
  • Goofy using the Horseshoe toss technique on Bradley.
  • There's the scene where Goofy tries to quit the Gammas. Tank picks him up and asks Bradley if he should knock some sense into him. Apparently not in the mood to be polite, Goofy grabs a pool que and slams it into Tank's foot.
  • The referee doing everything in his power to ensure that Team 99 gets as fair a chance as possible to get another member. The delivery of the simple "Not by my watch!" telling off Bradley who was engaging in Hypocritical Humor made it even better.
  • Many people were overjoyed when PJ is shown dancing freely and openly while actively flirting with the girl he just a minute ago was completely clamming up around. Seeing him smile so much more consistently can lead us to smile in more ways than one. And of course, other people can still find him funny.
  • In her first scene, Beret Girl getting fed up with Bradley, telling him off in verse and turning the entire club against him.
    Bradley: Why don't you go save some whales?
    Beret Girl: Ha! (snaps her fingers in his face) Oh, you slay me, tiger. You are the fly in my soup. You are the eyelash in my eye. You are so busy blowing off bad vibes in every DI-REC-TION, we are all choking on your second-hand smoke!
    • She then moonwalks, snapping her fingers, getting everyone else in the club to do the same to the Gammas until they leave, rightfully unnerved.
    • Also prior beforehand, how the trio of friends stand up for one another when dealing with Bradley. Also Heartwarming since it shows the development of their bond.
  • The Rousing Speech Bobby gives to Max when PJ and Beret Girl's attempts to get Max out of their funk fails. Besides being a good one, it also reinforces the importance of his personality and outgoing nature. He gets his friends pumped up and full of confidence.
    Max: If I can't even beat my father, who is probably the most athletically-challenged man in the universe, how can you expect me to beat the other competitors? We're starting in last place because of me!
    Bobby: That never stopped us before! You wanna give that Gamma geek Bradley the satisfaction of knowing he forced us out?
    Max: (still somewhat shaky) Well... no.
    Bobby: You wanna let the crowd who once cheered for you cheer for someone else? Especially when that someone else is your old man?
    Max: No!
    Bobby: Are you gonna be someone else's towel boy?
    Max: (completely serious) No!
    PJ: Together we can do it!
    Max: You're right! We can still beat 'em! Let's whip those Gammas!
    Bobby: Whoo-hoo-hoo! Mission: Possible!
    (cue Team Hand-Stack)
    All: Let's do it to it!
  • The blimp announcer continually interrupts the ground reporter throughout the movie. When the blimp begins to crash down and the announcer says it's like he's in a nightmare that just won't quit, the ground reporter answers "That's right, Chuck" with a smugly satisfied expression.
  • Brad blasts Tank & Max into the fabric logo, setting it on fire. Despite being close to the finish line Max and Goofy don't hesitate to lift the beam off Tank.
  • Tank turning on Brad for his betrayal and slingshotting him into the X-games blimp is extremely satisfying!
    Brad: Congrats, Max, I haven't forgotten our agreement.
    Max: The bet's off, Bradley. But I think you owe him something.
    Tank: Brad! Hi, it's me, the guy you let down!
    Brad: (nervously) H-Hey, T-Tank! Who loves ya, baby, huh?
    Tank: (growls) You're goin' down like a four-cent pair of socks!
    Brad: You and me, baby, all the way! (tries to run only to be stopped by Tank)
    Tank: Oh, a vacancy at the Gamma house, takin' applications.
    Brad: Okay! Let go of me, you big, fat jerk!
    Tank: Time to get on the last jet... TO NOWHERE!
    (fires Brad towards the X-games blimp)
