This "Goofy" cartoon is a spoof of both the Age of Knighthood and contemporary sports broadcasts. The year is 1446, and the occasion is the annual Canterbury Jousting Tournament. The breathless blow-by-blow sportscaster informs us that the winner of tournament will wed the beautiful Esmerelda, then introduces us to the opponents. The challenger is blonde, blue-eyed Sir Loinsteak, and the champion is the fearsome, cigar-puffing Sir Cumferance. Alas, Sir Loinsteak is knocked unconscious in his locker room, forcing his loyal and humble servant Cedric (aka Goofy) to take his place on the jousting field. At first, it looks like Sir Cumferance will emerge triumphant once more, but fortunately Cedric is armed with a pure heart, a strong hand, and invincible stupidity.
