* PJ is portrayed in a significantly more comical fashion in the sequel than he is in the first movie or the show. Is it losing track of one of the characters' narrative purpose? No, it's ''enhancing'' it. Because PJ's first line in the movie is ''winning a game of MiseryPoker'', we know they haven't lost track at all--but he is portrayed more comically because after the first scene (when he leaves home), he's ''free to joke''.
* We see Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck during the song "On the Open Road," and Mickey sings the line "California or bust." In a FreezeFrameBonus Mickey can be seen in the crowd during the Powerline concert. Mickey and Donald were simply hitch hiking to get to the concert.
** Also why Goofy didn't stop for his friends (assuming they're friends of his in this continuity): He knew they were going to LA, and thus [[DramaticIrony assumed he wasn't going their way.]]
* It seems a bit odd at first that the version of "Stand Out" that Max dances to in the first act seamlessly skips over parts from the version that comes on the movie soundtrack. But then, plenty of pop musicians release one version of a song on their album and a shortened version for the single, usually cutting the intro and sometimes the middle of the song. Max was dancing to the single version, and we get the album version! This also means PJ must have picked up the full album, since he's caught dancing to the second verse that the single version skips over.
* The two nerds in Star Trek uniforms. The lankier one with black hair is wearing a blue shirt, while the more rounded one with brown hair is wearing a gold one. [[http://jenniferlshelton.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/08/kirk-and-spock.jpg Kirk and Spock?]]
* Roxanne appears to be slightly off-model in the introductory DreamSequence, which makes perfect sense when you consider that this is Max's idealised dream-version of the girl he's in love with. It makes sense that a [[HormoneAddledTeenager 14-year-old boy]] would picture the object of his affections as more sexualised than they actually are.
* In the second movie, it may come as a bit of a surprise that PJ seems fine with his weight, considering how little confidence he has about everything else, at least until Beret Girl asks him to dance. Well, what's likely to be the only trait he has that Pete has never insulted him for? The one that they both obviously share without close examination.
* Roxanne's absence in the sequel makes a lot more sense when you take into account the fact that she and Max dated as teenagers. Middle-to-high school romances are very often short-lived.
** However, it ''is'' noted that we see Roxanne in one surprising place: ''House of Mouse.'' It was the focus of an episode and given Max went through his growth spurt, they probably dated for a few years before putting things on hold for college.
* Bobby's growing importance from the jump of the first to the second movie makes sense when you examine his interactions with Max and PJ. Back in '''Goof Troop''', Max was the optimist to the more realist PJ, balancing each other out. However, Max became more moody and lost confidence in himself as he entered his teenage years. Enter Bobby, who is a slightly obnoxious, but well-meaning and cheery sort of guy who helps bring a brighter spark to the duo and thus balance matters out. No wonder that he becomes close friends as he brings a new level of optimism and new way of thinking into their lives.
* In ''An Extremely Goofy Movie'', Bobby [[ContemplatingYourHands asking why everyone is wearing gloves]] seems like a [[ParentalBonus subtle]] [[TheStoner stoner]] [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar joke]]. However, it can also be interpreted as a [[LeaningOnTheFourthWall meta joke]] about how most people don't know why so many cartoon characters wear gloves instead of having just hands. In fact, this is probably what most children assume when they watch it (that's how I interpreted it when I was younger).
* The song title I2I from the first movie has two meanings. The first is the phonetic "Eye to Eye", reminiscent of the saying "looking through my eyes" and finally seeing each other as equals. The second is a bit more literal "I2I". A common way to refer to yourself is by saying "I" and "I" is sometimes written as a simple line. What else is written as a simple line? The Roman numeral I and what do you get when you add 1 and 1?

* If you want to consider the Goofy movies being in the same canon as ''WesternAnimation/GoofTroop'', the absence of Peg and Pistol seems to imply that sometime in that time, one of the following happened:
** Pete got divorced and PJ got separated from his mom and sister. Pretty dark, guys. What's even worse is that if this explanation is true, someone, somewhere, decided that Pete was ''fit to have custody of PJ''. This suggests shenanigans, [[DepartmentOfChildDisservices general incompetence]], or something even worse, such as Peg or PJ not caring if he ended up there.
** Or Peg just died. However, since Pete says he won't have to care for any children anymore when PJ leaves for college, if Peg died, chances are Pistol probably did too.
** Another explanation: we just don't get a look into Pete's own family life, what with the story focus being focused on Goofy and Max's relationship. The fact Pete now works as a child photographer alongside Goofy does imply he lost his car dealership, however.
*** The ''Extreme Goofy Movie'' complicates this since we see the trio celeberating leaving for college, which we would see Peg and Pistol there. And given the lack of emphasis on such a matter, it could be a divorce.
* In the hot spring scene, after Goofy says "I just want my son to love me", Pete replies "My son ''respects'' me." Think about [[AbusiveParents the implications of that.]]
* As much of a happy movie as it was, I find myself wondering about the scene where Max makes his big navigator choice. [[spoiler: Would Goofy have really driven them right into the median if Max hadn't chosen a direction?]]
** He's Goofy. What do you think?
* We never see if the security guard at the concert survived crashing into the screen.
* Both Max and Bobby have girlfriends by the end of the movie, itís implied. Usually people in relationships stop hanging out as much with their single friends. There is a single friend with a horrible home life and no ability to make new friends on his own, who is probably being ignored. Poor, poor PJ.
* In the sequel, PJ goes through considerable CharacterDevelopment after being asked out by Beret Girl... but if PJís confidence, self-esteem, and happiness skyrocketed after Beret Girl asked him out, that must mean he puts a lot of stock in her opinion. What's going to happen to him if she ''dumps'' him?
* When Max skateboards in the first movie, he is seen taking a fork from a baby. Said baby was just about to insert the fork into an electric socket before Max intervened.
* In the final verse of 'On the Open Road' a vehicle has an upper-class man in the trunk, bound and with CementShoes on.
