Good morning!
This day in Disney history, October 2nd, 1953. "Football Now and Then", directed by Jack Kinney is released.


A Grandfather & his Grandson argue about the merits of how football was played in the past & how it is currently payed. If you love football you MUST watch this short! :)
You may also notice that the music in this cartoon was taken from an earlier goofy cartoon How To Play Football

Had YOU seen this short before?

Thank you all for reading and watching! Hope you have a wonderful Wednesday!

Love this! I actually remember watching this as a kid. - madsdad  1868.2 #92 9:55AM
My dad had a whole box of Disney shorts (over 60 of them) on 8 mm that we all loved watching as kids.  After he passed we donated them all to the Walt Disney Family Museum in SF as they needed some restoration work.  This one was one of them, thanks for the trip down memory lane!! - ValsLaughingPlace  21.3 #7113 3:11PM
Thank you for the presentation of the history. Football has changed since 1953. Maybe it's time to remake it.  - Midasgold  633.3 #318 5:48PM
