Disneyland host Walt Disney turns over the narration of this mostly animated episode to a new cartoon character, Greek historian Spyros Olympopolus. The factual history of sports is depicted in a semi-comic fashion through clips of vintage Disney cartoons starring the eminent "Everydog" Goofy, along with new footage specially animated for this episode (best new sequence: The "invention" of basketball). Among the cartoons excerpted herein are The Olympic Champ, Goofy Gymnastics, The Art of Skiing, and How to Play Football. Rebroadcast several times on Walt Disney's various TV anthologies, The Goofy Sports Story was released theatrically in 1964.
