"How to Swim" (1942) is an animated short by Walt Disney. In it, Goofy, clad in a old-time men's bathing costume and his trademark hat, tries to give the audience lessons in both swimming and diving -- despite being spectacularly inept at both. Goofy does stuff like lie on a piano stool to demonstrate the various strokes. There is also a narrator who provides unhelpful commentary like, "It is customary to have the pool filled with water," after Goofy dives into an empty pool.

"How To Swim" was one of several Goofy shorts in which he unsuccessfully tried to educate people about a given sport.
