    Goofy How to Be a Sailor Inker's Test Full Nitrate Cels Group of 3 (Walt Disney, 1944). Jack Kinney directed this Goofy short that tells the history of sailing, and ends with an attack on the Japanese, to qualify this as a World War II propaganda-type short. This short was released on 1/28/44, and for those of you who love Fred Moore girls (and who doesn't?), take notice on this one. At about 6:07 into the short, the seamen are all shown dreaming of girls, and here we have two rare, hand-inked Inker's Test full nitrate cels of two Goofy-like sailors dreaming of those Moore girls. Also included in the lot is an inked cel of the referee from "How To Play Football". In Fine condition.
