Goofy Gymnastics is a 1949 Goofy cartoon produced by Walt Disney Productions and released by RKO Radio Pictures on September 23, 1949.


Goofy enters home tired after a hard day at work. Exhausted, he suddenly notices an exercise advertisement in his newspaper. He orders gymnastics equipment and with the aid of an instruction record he tries out using the barbells, the chin-up bars and cable expanders, all of which meet with disastrous results. Goofy destroys the floors of his apartment in the process and flies out of the window before he is swung back against the muscular chart of his equipment. While he stands behind the cardboard muscular man he is glad that he finally resembles a muscular man.


"Goofy Gymnastics" is one of Goofy's most popular and famous cartoons. The cartoon is also shown in Who Framed Roger Rabbit (1988) during the scene where Roger and Eddie hide in a cinema. Roger Rabbit laughs out loud with the cartoon, praises Goofy's timing and finesse and claims he is a "genius." However, this is an anachronism, since "Who Framed Roger Rabbit" takes place in the year 1947, while Goofy Gymnastics was released in 1949. This cartoon was also shown in September 2002 as part of the "Salute to Sports" episode of Disney's House of Mouse.
