Did you know?
Goofy made his debut in “Mickey’s Revue,” a short movie that features Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Horace Horsecollar and Clarabelle Cow. Since then, Goofy made several regular appearances in most Mickey Mouse animations and has enjoyed starring roles in Disney’s many cartoon shorts, films and television shows. Some of his favourite onscreen roles have been in the “How To” cartoons, where he bumbled through his explanations, “Goof Troop” with his son Max and more recently in the popular series, “Mickey Mouse Clubhouse”. He also appeared in numerous movies like “Mickey’s Christmas Carol”, “The Prince and the Pauper”, and “Mickey, Donald and Goofy: The Three Musketeers”.
Goofy’s original name was “Dippy Dawg” and his early personality was that of a “goofball”. His raucous laugh, as much as his “goofiness”, became his trademark and other cartoon characters began to refer to him as “Dippy the Goof”.
This eventually became his stamp and evolved into his current name — Goofy. He was first spotlighted by his new name in his first solo cartoon “Goofy and Wilbur”.
