,,Goofy’s wife has appeared – but always with her face unseen – 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 always shown only as uncles rather than parental figures. (In comic books, Goofy was regularly featured as having a nephew, Gilbert, but that character has only existed in comics, with no cartoon appearances.) In the European comic books, Goofy has an adventurer cousin called Arizona Goof (original Italian name: Indiana Pipps), who is a spoof of the fictional archaeologist Indiana Jones.
Goofy’s catch phrases are “gawrsh!” (which is his usual exclamation of surprise and his way of pronouncing “gosh”), along with “ah-hyuck!” (a distinctive chuckle), and especially the Goofy holler (see below).
In his 1930s cartoon appearances, Goofy commonly wore a black vest, blue pants, a turtleneck shirt (colored either red or orange), white gloves, extra-long brown shoes, and a very distinctive hat (either blue or green). That has been the character’s iconic look ever since, even though it was seldom featured in cartoons after the 1930s.
Goofy is an animated cartoon character from the Walt Disney’s Mickey Mouse universe, 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 1950s name. On the other hand, the comics sometimes refer to him as Goofus D. Dawg. Along with being not extremely intelligent, Goofy’s main flaw is, predictably, clumsiness. His birthday is May 25, 1932. Goofy is a V.I.P. member of the Mickey Mouse Club.
