George Goofy, also known as George P. Geef, Dippy Dawg or simply Goofy, is an anthropomorphic dog.
Goofy seems to operate based on his own dreamlike logic rather than through any real-world customs, and seldom realizes what goes wrong in his endeavors, convinced he was doing just fine and it's the universe that is being mean to him. He has, however, also demonstrated several special talents on occasions, such as an amazing photographic memory or artistic gifts. He also has a superhero alter-ego called Super Goof.
Goofy was temporarily married to a redheaded woman, only known as Mrs Goofy, who was just as clumsy as Goofy himself but also very attractive. They even had a son, Max. Unfortunately, they seem to have been separated soon thereafter. Goofy had to raise his son alone, and moved to the city of Spoonerville during Max's teenage years, presumably to keep him away from the constant adventures Goofy would get into if he stayed within spitting distance of Mickey Mouse. However, Max is now an adult and Goofy has moved back to Mouseton.
Physical Appearance Edit
Goofy is a lanky anthropomorphic dog. He has black fur on certain parts of his body, while on others he has what is either a brownish fur color or actual human-like skin. He has a large, doglike snout and droopy ears.
He frequently wears a vest with a sweater, pants, and large shoes. His iconic hat somewhat resembles a crumpled fedora, and has been variously colored green, blue, or orange.
Behind the scenesEdit
Goofy, originally known as Dippy Dawg, made his first physical appearance in the 1932 cartoon Mickey's Revue as bearded, spectacled dog with a laugh which annoyed other attendees of the play which he was attending. This laugh, performed by voice actor Pinto Colvig, had previously debuted in the 1932 short Barnyard Olympics, though the character to whom the laugh was attached was not seen onscreen.
