Episode chronology
The Mouse Who Came to Dinner Not So Goofy
Max has to prove to his father that he is responsible enough to own a car.


While parking all the guests' cars in the valet parking lot, Max expresses disappointment that he's the only one in town who doesn't seem to have a car. With encouragement from Herbie, Max goes to ask his dad if he will buy him a car. Goofy isn't sure about it, though, as he doesn't think Max is responsible enough to own a car, and says he will have to think about it.

Later, after Mickey's New Car is shown, Minnie asks Mickey whatever did happen to the eponymous automobile after it abandoned him; Mickey simply responds that he hopes to never see that car again. Just then, at the club's entrance, the car from the short drives up to Max and opens it door to let him inside. The car then takes Max on a crazy ride though Main Street (during which Cruella De Vil ironically criticizes his driving) which eventually results in him crashing through the back of the club and scaring off O'Malley and the Alley Cats. Minnie and Mickey attempt to help Max hide the wreckage from Goofy, but he sees it anyway and is so appalled at this that he tells Max that he is definitely not getting a car for them now.

Max apologizes to Minnie for crashing the car and scaring away the music act, offering to do an act in place of the Alley Cats' performance. Max goes up on stage and announces his homage to the driving skills of his father... and then shows clips of Goofy's own reckless driving from Motor Mania, which definitely makes Goofy pause for thought. Mickey, Minnie, Donald, and Daisy point out to Goofy how hypocritical he's being about Max being an irresponsible driver, so he decides to get Max something even better - his own parking space. Max laments that he doesn't have anything to park there, but when Mr. Toad crashes an old car that he stole from Ludwig Von Drake earlier in the episode right in that lot, Goofy finally agrees to buy it for Max.
