My favorite cartoon is Goofy. He is very, very, funny. i watched it a lot of times but i never bored to see it. He is always so improbable. He does everything in a strange, inpossible and very, very different way. I can remember very well the cartoon when Goofy was in mountain and he wanted to know to ski, I laughted all the time. And the other one when he was with Paperino [Donald duck] and Topolino [Mickey Mouse] and they were travelling with caper. Certainly Walt Disney was a great, fantastic....inventor or designer? I dont't know which is the exatly word to use. I never could to see someting better than those brilliant, funny and creative cartoons.
