Western Animation: Motor Mania
Motor Mania is a 1950 Walt Disney cartoon starring Goofy.

Goofy (early on in his "everyman" phase) plays a mild-mannered gentleman named Mr. Walker, who takes on a very different split personality when he gets behind the wheel of his car, effectively renaming himself Mr. Wheeler.


This cartoon contains examples of:

  • Big "Shut Up!": Mr. Wheeler does this twice. First, when he drives so slowly that cars behind him honk their horns at him, he yells this at them. Surprisingly, it stops. Second, at the end, he shouts this at the narrator when he chides him for his irresponsibility, which causes him to so crash his car that it has to be towed away.
  • Chronically Crashed Car: Mr. Wheeler's car.
  • Drives Like Crazy: Mr. Wheeler, and proud of it.
  • Hypocritical Humor: Mr. Wheeler doesn't like it when others hog the road, even though he himself does it a lot. Probably justified as he does act like he owns the road.
  • Jekyll & Hyde: Mr. Walker and Mr. Wheeler, respectively.
  • Literal-Minded: Played with when Mr. Wheeler is accused of acting like he owns the road:
    Mr. Wheeler: (to himself) Hmph! Of course I own the road. My taxes pay for them. I voted for road bonds. I pay for the roads, and I'll use them.
  • Meaningful Name: Mr. Walker and Mr. Wheeler.
  • Mood Whiplash: This happens whenever Mr. Walker gets into his car and becomes Mr. Wheeler.
