Goofy Goof (simply known as Goofy) is the tritagonist of The Walt Disney Company.
Clumsy but ultimately good-natured, Goofy is one of Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck's best friends. However, he is not too bright and this can lead to problems sometimes. He is Clarabelle Cow's boyfriend. In Goof Troop, Goofy is the titular character and one of the two main protagonists, along with his son, Max Goof.In both A Goofy Movie and its sequel An Extremely Goofy Movie, Goofy is also the titular character and one of the two main protagonists.
Despite being one of the protagonists, he was once shown to be antagonist.
In the 1992-1993 TV series Goof Troop, Goofy lives in the town of Spoonerville with his son Max and their cat Waffles and lives next door to his high school friend Pete, his wife Peg, their children P.J. and Pistol and their dog Chainsaw.
He was voiced by late Pinto Colvig (1932-1938, 1940-1967), late George Johnson (1939-1943), late Hal Smith (1967-1983, 1986-1987), late Tony Pope (1979-1988) and currently Bill Farmer since 1987. In the Japanese version of the Kingdom Hearts games, he was voiced by the late Yuu Shimaka.
Goofy's most notable personalities are how clumsy, dimwitted, and, of course, goofy he is. These are also his main flaws, and even Mickey and Donald sometimes consider him rather annoying because of that.
Aside from this, he is also charming and lovable, and Mickey and Donald still consider him very close friends. He is a nice guy, has a very good heart and speaks with a southern drawl. He is great at sports and raising children, and has shown a degree of intelligence occasionally, and can notice things others can't at times.
He is always willing to help out and has the best intentions at heart, but sometimes causes a lot of problems which can be annoying at best and disastrous at worst, which even he himself finds embarrassing. He's caring and supportive towards his friends and family and doesn't like being alone. Goofy can be be a little bit protective to his son, Max, but he still loves him deeply.
Max is also embarrassed by Goofy several times, but he still cares about his father. Goofy hates being thought of and referred to as dumb, as he is aware of his limited intelligence, and while he is calm and much more patient than Mickey, Donald and Daisy, being rarely angry, he loses his patience when someone says something insulting about him or refers to him as stupid or make him seem like he is, like when he realizes that Max lied to him and tricked him about the path on the map.
Despite Mickey and Donald being the top stars, Goofy was the most favorite to Walt Disney.
In his 1930's 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). This has been the character's iconic look ever since, even though it was seldom featured in cartoons after the 1930's.
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 1950's, 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 1950's name.
