Poster Parody: Slap Shot is fan art W. Scott Pattullo did in 2015.


Scott completed the piece on March 4, 2015 and uploaded it to his DeviantART page the same day. It was done as an entry in a contest on DeviantART.

Subject and titleEdit

This is one of two separate entries in the "Parody Posters" contest at the Disney-Club at DeviantART. The purpose of the contest was to create a parody of an existing movie poster with Disney characters. Following is the description Scott listed on the artwork's DeviantART page:

The idea is to take a non-Disney movie poster and turn it into a Disney poster with Disney characters. For this one, I combined two films about my favorite sport: hockey. It's the 1977 Paul Newman film "Slap Shot" (the greatest hockey movie ever made) and the 1945 Disney animated short film "Hockey Homicide" (starring Goofy).

Putting two hockey films together was a no-brainer. I just took the "Slap Shot" poster and replaced the characters with the Goofy-like characters from the Disney film. "Slap Shot" is a comedy about a minor league ice hockey team that is folding after their current season. So the player/coach (Paul Newman) does everything he can to bring fans in as well as the money and keep the team alive. (The film is rated R for lots of dirty language and brief nudity. So beware if you plan on watching it.) And then the Disney cartoon is about a simple hockey game that quickly degenerates into chaos...and all the characters are essentially Goofy.

As far as the credits at the bottom: I listed a bunch of "Goof Troop" and "Goofy Movie" characters as the cast. Nancy Dowd, Dede Allen and George Roy Hill all worked on the original "Slap Shot". Then, of course, I had to list myself as the animator.

Needless to say, while working on this, I got lots of practice drawing Goofy.


Scott started out with a pencil drawing, then inked the final line work. He then scanned the drawing to work on it digitally.
