"G" is for GUS [1976] - A to Z April Challenge [2015]

So what can we say about Disney? Holds a special place in some of our hearts, for the villains or heroes and or the beautiful look. I hope to share a little bit of everything in the days coming, maybe things you forgot about, maybe not and being part of the Co-hosting for A to Z Challenge we all remember Tina... a dear friend and sweet lady.

Please stop back throughout the challenge, can I encourage you to start following me on Google + and be a member. I promise to give you posts here on why we are all a little "Hollywood Nuts"! -Jeremy [Retro]

Gus is a film about a football-kicking mule ("Gus") and his trainer "Andy" (Gary Grimes). The film opens with a soccer game, and the Petrovic family watching their son Stepjan win the soccer game. Their other son Andy Petrovic works on his farm in Yugoslavia, and can't play soccer at all. A soccer ball is behind his mule, Gus. After saying that he never wants to see a soccer ball again, Gus kicks the soccer ball a long distance. Andy tries it with him and he says, "Oyage!" and Gus kicks the ball. [Note: there is fierce debate in the Gus fan community re the spelling of "Oyage." Some spell it "Oyatch!," while others give it a more Yugoslavian-sounding "Ojigdz!"]

Meanwhile, the California Atoms are a team that cannot do anything right. Debbie Kovac, a woman with Yugoslavian parents gets the Yugoslavian papers, and once Hank Cooper and Coach Venner find out about Gus, they want him over. So with that, Andy and Gus fly over to California and Gus' kicking of the football gets them to agree to let them join the team.

  4. I can honestly say I have never, ever heard of this film :). A football kicking mule ... that's a new one on me.

  5. Can't say as I've ever seen it, but no movie with Tim Conway and Don Knotts can be all bad. :)

  10. Aww, how sweet! I never heard of this movie but I definitely want to see it now! GREAT clip you included. I love Ed Asner. Anything he plays in is good. I wonder if Gus is available on Netflix? Will have to check that out. Good choice for G!

  13. I had forgotten about this film! Thanks for the reminder. Also, just saw Ed Asner in a few episodes of the "New" Hawaii Five-0! Had no idea he was still acting, and doing a great job at it as well! Lisa, co-host AtoZ 2015, @ http://www.lisabuiecollard.com

  19. Leave it to Disney to come up with a wild mule tale that entertains for years.

  20. I love Disney films. Never seen this one though, I wonder if we got it over here in the UK? Have to have a look! ~Liz (Sorry but if you click on my name you'll be taken to the wrong blog, links are there, but this is my blog address: http://www.lizbrownleepoet.com 565 on the list!)

  23. Never heard of it. Does sound funny.

  24. We had that on VHS and my oldest son watched it over and over again. He's now all grown up and a high school football coach. Hasn't brought in a mule yet.

  25. As much as I enjoy a good sports movie, Gus is one I might be less likely to watch but who knows..it might be entertaining :)

    Much like that Cat flick you blogged about last weekend, I do like the artwork for the Gus movie poster. Speaking of artwork, I must say I'm loving the way you organize your challenge posts, briefing readers on your Disney theme while also highlighting your social deets at the bottom of posts. I'm going to have to try something like that.

    Happy Humpday!

    P.S.
    Saw your commenting difficulties...can you send me an email about what you're experiencing (including browser deets, etc.)? It looks like all your comments are coming up when I receive the notices on my end but I don't know why something would be acting funny. Alternatively, you could tweet me your comments @MadlabPost and that might be kinda interesting.

  29. Now there's a movie I totally forgot about in my mind. I remember seeing it as a kid at the movies. That was my generation's version of Air Bud.

  30. We lived on a military base as a kid and at Christmas and at the end of the school year they dragged us into the base theatre for a movie afternoon and it was always a new movie like GUS. I remember cheering like a maniac that the team would win and didn't notice all the bad green screen work. OIYICH!!

  31. I probably saw this a million years ago.
    Look at that cast!
