Goofy Cartoon

Goofy is an animated cartoon character from the Walt Disney's Mickey Mouse universe. He is an anthropomorphic Dog, and not a cow, as many people belive... and is one of Mickey Mouse's best friends. His original concept name was "Dippy Dawg" in cartoon shorts created during the 1930s; then his name was given as "George Geef" or "G.G. Geef" in cartoon shorts during the 1950s (implying that "Goofy" was a nickname). Contemporary sources, including the Goof Troop television show and A Goofy Movie, now give the character's full name to be Goofy Goof. The Goof Troop pilot also refers to 'G. G. Goof' on a diploma, likely a reference to the original name. Along with being not extremely intelligent, Goofy's main flaw is, predictably, clumsiness. On the map in A Goofy Movie that shows the trip that Goofy senior and his father took, it says that the map belongs to Benjamin Goof, again changing the name of the famous character.

The Goof Troop pilot refers to Goofy as "G. G. Goof" on a diploma, likely a reference to the original name. In the film A Goofy Movie, a map belonging to Benjamin Goof depicts a trip that Goofy took with his father, implying Benjamin as the name of Goofy's paternal parent. In the television series Goof Troop, Goofy claims he was born in California as the first-born Goof in America.

Goofy's wife has been seen in some earlier short cartoons depicting the character as a "family man," but his modern appearances portray Goofy as a widower. As a single father raising his son, Max Goof, Goofy's family life contrasts with other major Disney characters such as Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck, who are often shown only as uncles rather than parental figures. Goofy does have a nephew, Gilbert, but that relative has hardly been seen since Goofy became known as a father. Goofy also has an adventurer relative Arizona Goof (a spoof of Indiana Jones).

Goofy's catch phrase is "gawrsh!" which is his usual exclamation of surprise, along with an ahyuck (a distinctive high-pitched chuckle). He commonly wears a green hat, an orange shirt, blue jeans, and brown shoes.
