The latest nouveau Mickey short features Mickey, Donald and Goofy on a road trip to fulfill Goofy's lifelong dream of visiting Potatoland. When Mickey and Donald find out that Goofy has read the sign for Potatoland wrong and it doesn't exist they band together for their buddy and build it in the middle of a potato field.
Running at almost 8 minutes, it's the longest short of the new series yet, and it takes some obvious-but-loving pot shots at Disney World and Disneyland. Particular to the Disney World experience, Goofy's attraction to the promising road sign also would seem to mimic the South of the Border road signs that lead you basically to a glorified gas station and novelty condom shop.
