Scrooge McDuck Wikia

This Chum For Hire is a comic one-pager drawn by Phil DeLara. It features Goofy and (in his debut) Mr Hayday. It also mentions Cuckoo.


Goofy has found himself a job: professional friend. For fifty cents a day, he offers outgoing companionship to lonely people. A fine idea in theory, but, as refined customer Mr Hayday soon discovers, Goofy isn't exactly the most stimulating company around.
