How to Hook Up Your Home Theater is a 2007 Disney short film that showcases classic Goofy in his own hilarious style. The film is directed by Kevin Deters and Stevie Wermers-Skelly, and features the voices of Corey Burton and Bill Farmer. The film follows the adventures of Goofy as he embarks on a mission to upgrade his home theater system. As he has done with previous house projects, Goofy takes a DIY approach, which leads to some comical situations. Throughout the film, Goofy attempts to install his new home theater system piece by piece, taking on each task with his typical clumsy, goofy mannerisms. His task is not helped by his dog Pluto who also wants to be involved in every step of the installation. Despite Goofy's lack of expertise, he manages to set up the system, but not without several comical setbacks. Each stage of the installation process provides a series of silly and humorous mishaps. The setup process starts with Goofy assembling the screen, which he leaves leaning against the wall unsecured. This leads to some slapstick antics with the screen crashing down on the unsuspecting Goofy. Next, Goofy installs the speakers by using his drill to create holes in the walls. However, his unsteady hand results in unevenly spaced drill holes, and some speakers end up being installed at an upward angle, aiming inward. This situation leads to plenty of humorous scenes, with Goofy constantly fiddling with the speakers and the wires that connect them. Finally, Goofy installs the projector, which is the most complex part of the process. He initially sets it up incorrectly, so the image appears upside down. After several more attempts, Goofy manages to mount the projector correctly but uses the wrong lens. This creates a distorted, warped image, which he tries to fix by moving the projector around the room. This scenario leads to a series of impossible to miss gags that involve Goofy and Pluto getting in each other's way. The climax of the film happens when Goofy finally turns on his home theater system. Goofy is ecstatic to experience the new sound and picture quality, only to experience an earthquake-like experience when the bass turns up. The sound is so powerful that it shakes his entire house, and everything goes berserk, leaving Goofy and Pluto holding on for dear life. Overall, How to Hook Up Your Home Theater from 2007 is a hilarious and entertaining short film from Disney. The film is suitable for all ages, and it's enjoyable for both adults and children.
