Are you a fan of Disney’s classic cartoon character Goofy? Did you know that this lovable goofball has made an appearance in a horror movie? That’s right, Goofy has stepped out of his usual comedic role and into the world of fright in the 1986 horror film “The Midnight Hour.”
The Midnight Hour
“The Midnight Hour” is a made-for-TV horror movie that originally aired on ABC on November 1, 1985. The film follows a group of high school students who accidentally awaken a centuries-old curse on Halloween night. The curse brings back to life the town’s dead inhabitants, who then wreak havoc on the living.
In “The Midnight Hour,” Goofy makes a brief but memorable appearance during a Halloween party scene. He can be seen dancing alongside other classic movie monsters such as Dracula, Frankenstein’s monster, and the Wolfman. While Goofy doesn’t have any lines or significant actions in the scene, his inclusion adds an unexpected element of humor to an otherwise spooky moment.
The Legacy of “The Midnight Hour”
Although “The Midnight Hour” wasn’t particularly well-received by critics at the time of its release, it has since gained a cult following among fans of ’80s horror movies. The film’s blend of comedy and horror is reminiscent of other popular horror-comedies from that era such as “Gremlins” and “Ghostbusters.”
So there you have it – while Goofy may not be known for his scary antics, he did make an appearance in a horror movie! If you’re a fan of both Disney and horror films, be sure to check out “The Midnight Hour.” And who knows – maybe one day we’ll see more unexpected crossovers like this in the world of movies.
- Tip: If you’re interested in watching “The Midnight Hour,” it’s available for streaming on various platforms such as Amazon Prime and YouTube.
- Fun Fact: Goofy isn’t the only Disney character to make a surprise appearance in a horror movie – Donald Duck also appears briefly in the classic 1933 film “King Kong!”
