    How to Play Football Goofy Promo Illustration by Hank Porter (Walt Disney, 1944). Are you ready for some football? Jack Kinney directed this Academy Award nominated short, part of the Goofy "How To" series. This parody of college football features the "Goofies of Taxidermy Tech" taking on the "Goofies of Anthropology A&M." It was released on 9/15/44, and is considered a classic Goofy short. This is an outstanding Hank Porter (1900 - 1951) original illustration created for newspapers and magazines to promote the short. It's in ink and white paint on a sheet of 14.25" x 17.5" Craftint Duo-Board, with an approximate image size of 12.75" x 15". Goofy is an impressive 9" x 12". The hand-written caption reads, "Hey Stupid, play th' game!", with a ghostly Devil Goofy pointing out the rules in a "How to Play Football" book, as poor Goofy jiggles a loose tooth. Pinholes, edge wear, and tanning; overall Very Good condition.
