Voiced by: Bill Farmer
The good-natured but clueless father of Max. He's the next door neighbor of the Pete family, and is often brought into Pete's schemes as a sidekick. He ends up with Sylvia in An Extremely Goofy Movie
- Accidental Athlete: In An Extremely Goofy Movie when he interferes with Max's practice and is even offered a spot with the Gammas by complete accident.
- Alliterative Name/Repetitive Name: Like all of the examples on this show, he is never referred to by full name, just as "Goofy" and "Mr. Goof."
- Amazingly Embarrassing Parents: If it's not embarrassing enough that he ends up following Max to school (twice, although the two events are mutually exclusive), it certainly is that he continues to baby Max in public when Max is a teenager. Or an adult.
- Back to School: In the second movie. And, much to Max's horror, at the same college as him.
- Birds of a Feather: He and Sylvia are both Disco Dan types.
- Bow Ties Are Cool: Goofy is one of the most unashamed characters in the series, hence, he wears bow ties all the time.
- Bumbling Dad: Goofy is a great parent, but due to his clumsiness, stupidity, and/or difference in personality to his son, he ends up causing some issues anyway.
- Bumbling Sidekick: Screws up nearly every Zany Scheme he's a part of. And yet, for some reason, Pete always insists on using him.
- Cloudcuckoolander: He has bizarre logic that no one else on the show can follow. Pete and Max in particular find it annoying, but Peg and PJ tend to humor him more.
- Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: There are moments of this, usually when he's protecting Max, such as in "To Catch a Goof" where he trains to be a ninja.
- Disco Dan: He is revealed to be one of these in An Extremely Goofy Movie, even thinking wearing bell-bottoms, platform shoes, and afros to class is appropriate attire.
- The Ditz: The other characters really have a hard time keeping him up to speed, although Pete does enjoy exploiting this as an easy way to get help.
- Dogs Are Dumb: Goofy is a dog as well as being The Ditz and a Cloudcuckoolander. Despite this, he does have his moments of insight.
- Doting Parent: To Max. He provides lots of attention to Max much to the latter's embarrassment.
- Drives Like Crazy: Most prominently in A Goofy Movie but there was also an episode where he said he would drive and everyone freaks out.
Max: The old man drives like such a klutz that I'm about to hurl my guts directly upon the open road.
- Dumb Is Good: Providing a Good Parent contrast to Pete, he's not as smart as anyone else.
- Fat and Skinny: The skinny to Pete's fat. He plays the optimist just along for the ride.
- The Fool: Considering how often Goofy ends up with the upper hand over Pete or succeeding at something despite his incredible stupidity, he's very, very lucky.
- Four Philosophy Ensemble: The apathetic, because he's too weird or crazy to know what's going on.
- Former Teen Rebel: Goofy was a notorious biker.
- Good Parents: Despite being weird and embarrassing, he truly does care about Max, and does try to make Max happy and do what's best for him most of the time, even if it doesn't always work. He is also very good at being emotionally supportive and generally talking to kids. He acts as a Parental Substitute for PJ on occasion, and is shown being able to talk to and calm Pistol down (if only for a moment). He also does baby photography in the movie, where it is clear the kids and their parents adore him.
- Heroes Want Redheads: Ends up with the redheaded Sylvia Marpole in the second movie.
- Horrible Judge of Character: In general, his relationship with Pete. Being The Pollyanna he doesn't seem to have any concept of what a Jerk Ass Pete is, regarding Pete as his bestest best friend in the entire world, in spite of Pete's typical disdain of him.
- Iron Butt Monkey: Oh, Goofy. Your stupidity got you injured again... and again... and there seem to be no long-lasting ill-effects.
- Kindhearted Cat Lover: Goofy, one of the sweetest people around, just loves his cat Waffles. And for that extra zing, the cat lover in question is an anthropomorphic dog.
- Kindhearted Simpleton: Goofy is certainly not the sharpest tool in the shed, but he's also very sweet and loving towards everyone.
- The Klutz: Constantly causes destruction and self-injury due to his clumsiness. And his stupidity.
- Lethal Chef: Don't eat Goofy's "Goofy Burgers". You'll regret it. The one he made for PJ punched Waffles in the face.
- Lethally Stupid: The cause of many of Pete's mishaps, especially in "Goof Fellas" when Goofy gets them both in trouble with The Mafia and given special attention in "The Good, the Bad, and the Goofy", although in that episode, the stupidity manages to save Pete.
- Literal-Minded: Several jokes in the series come from him not understanding when Pete is using a metaphor or being sarcastic. Strangely, he's pretty good at making analogies himself.
- Made of Iron: The only way he manages to survive the troubles he gets himself into.
- Malaproper: Often.
Goofy: Easy, Pete, or I'll have to bring you to your senses! You're historical!
- Man Child: In "Buddy Building", while he, Max, PJ, Pete, and another father and son duo are looking for Ronald Strudelnosher, he is told by his son that they know for sure that Strudelnosher is not in the sand box. Goofy merely responds by playing in the sand box and saying that Ronald Strudelnosher doesn't know what he is missing.
- Meaningful Name: As with all versions of the character, he ain't called Goofy for nothing.
- Mistaken for Badass: Goofy was once known as "the Skull". Though apparently nobody knew it was short for numbskull.
- Nice Guy: All he really wants to do is help other people out with their problems, no matter how grateful they end up being to him.
- Parental Substitute: To PJ on occasions, most notably in "O R-V, I N-V U", where he successfully cheers him up with a motivational speech. PJ does have a father at home but he's not a very good one.
- The Pollyanna: He suffers physical injury regularly, is continually screwed over by his neighbor, and his son doesn't always appreciate what he does for him. He still maintains one of the two cheeriest and most optimistic dispositions on the show... most of the time, but even he has his breaking points.
- Simpleton Voice: Goofy manages to pull this off and still maintain something of an emotional range.
- Too Dumb to Fool: Occasionally Pete will try to trick him but due to his stupidity Goofy will cause more harm than good, most notably when Pete hypnotizes him in "In Goof We Trust."
- Too Dumb to Live: His stupidity puts him in life-threatening danger on several occasions and he doesn't know any better, with mistaking The Mafia for tailors in "Goof Fellas" being the biggest example. He usually survives only due to dumb luck and being Made of Iron.
- Vitriolic Best Buds: With Pete of the one-sided variety; Pete hates him but he doesn't hate Pete back.
- Wacky Parent, Serious Child: Wacky Parent to Max's Serious Child, especially in the movies where Max is a more disillusioned teenager.
- White Gloves: As with every version of the character.
The relatively serious and ambitious son of Goofy. He is the next door neighbor of the Pete family, and is PJ's best friend. He often comes up with schemes and involves PJ. In A Goofy Movie
, he befriends Bobby and gets together with Roxanne.
- Adorkable: He's socially awkward around the girl he likes and he is Goofy's son, but he's adorable for it.
- Aesop Amnesia: Max learning how lucky he is to have his dad in A Goofy Movie, and then seeming to hate him again in the sequel.
- Anti-Hero: When he can, he will consistently help out people in need (from his dad to his depressed neighbor to one of his enemies), and will not go out of his way to hurt other people...but he will resort to underhanded tactics in order to get what he wants sometimes, such as lying to his crush, tricking his dad, or taking advantage of his friends.
- Berserk Button: Okay, so he doesn't exactly go berserk, but Max consistently, and always, hates it when somebody tells him he looks/acts/talks just like his dad.
- Birds of a Feather: Like Roxanne, he is somewhat Adorkable when flirting with her, and needs his friends' help to get with her.
- Bratty Teenage Son: A male example in the movies and on a few occasions on the show. Max cares about his popularity and image, loudly complains about minor inconveniences, and is somewhat materialistic. Most of the time this shows up, however, he learns to appreciate what he has... for now.
- Chromatic Arrangement: In An Extremely Goofy Movie with PJ (blue) and Bobby (green), he's the red-wearing main character.
- Comic Trio: The reckless leader to PJ (powerless) and Bobby (follower) during the "Stand Out" stunt, since he's the one who comes up with the plan.
- Cool Loser: There's a little more basis for this one than some others (being somewhat socially awkward and having a mostly unenviable legacy), but compared to PJ and Bobby, he definitely doesn't seem like that much of a loser. Not to mention that Roxanne has many of his flaws too and is not a loser.
- Deadpan Snarker: Max loves to snark about all the various stupidities of the two fathers, and at PJ as well (though in his case it's mutual).
- Distressed Dude: Due to his optimism, sometimes Max ends up in predicaments and needs to be rescued. More often than not, the rescuer is PJ.
- Fat and Skinny: The skinny to PJ's fat. He's played as both the leader and the optimist.
- Fearless Fool: Not stupid, but he is incredibly optimistic and doesn't worry about much of anything. At least before the movies. One time he decided it would be a good idea to help a baby bear find its parents. Another time he decided to go downtown without supervision. Then of course there are the Distressed Dude moments.
Max (completely calmly talking about a baby bear): Remember the three rules of camping. "Be clean, be courteous, and be careful." Helping this little guy is the courteous thing to do.
PJ (agitated): You let me know when we hit that part about "careful".
- Four Philosophy Ensemble: The optimist, as a defining aspect of his personality is how often he thinks his Zany Schemes will work.
- Friendless Background: Max is revealed in "Everything's Coming Up Goofy" to have only been friends with trees before moving to Spoonerville, and in "Pistolgeist" Goofy talks about how Max had an Imaginary Friend, until the day that he met his first real friend, PJ. This is mutual.
- Heroes Want Redheads: Roxanne, his (thus far) most prominent and most well known Love Interest.
- Heterosexual Life-Partners/True Companions: He is extremely close friends with PJ in the show and the first movie. In the second movie, he has the same amount of loyalty to Bobby.
- High School Hustler: He is one of the most clever characters on the show, and does have personal motivations for his deeds a lot of the time, but he's a good person at heart.
- I Am Not My Father: See Berserk Button.
- I Just Want to Be Normal: As much as he loves his dad, he does not want to grow up to be as weird. He even has a nightmare about it in A Goofy Movie.
- Innocently Insensitive: He sometimes makes remarks toward PJ that indicate he doesn't fully understand what he's going through, whether by openly envying him, making jokes about him being abusednote or bulliednote , or simply not picking up on his needs. He never means anything to hurt unless he's (falsely) convinced that PJ deserves it for betraying him.
- Living Emotional Crutch: To PJ. While PJ's not exactly sunshine-and-rainbows with Max around, the pilot shows that without him, things would be a lot worse. Normally, this is shown from PJ being devastated when they end up in a (one-sided) fight, but in An Extremely Goofy Movie, he relapses from his Character Development when Max threatens to transfer.
PJ (upon hearing that he's not allowed to see Max again): Oh, well... at least I had one day of fun in my life... twenty-four wonderful, happenin' hours.
- Missing Mom: Max's mother has never been seen or even mentioned, and thus it's not actually known who she even is or what happened to her.
- No Sympathy: Zig-Zagged. Sometimes Max will be very sympathetic—such as in the pilot and "Close Encounters of the Weird Mime"—and go out of his way to help, but other times he just can't fathom why PJ might be upset at being treated inconsiderately, nervous about a plan, or annoyed that Max complains about his dad in front of him. He also accuses him of being a bad friend thrice despite the fact that every time he was either obviously contrite or actively denying the betrayal. Goofy tries to tell Max to be more sympathetic when this happens.
- Not So Different: From Pete. Even though Max despises Pete, he is just as guilty at times of being self-absorbed and using other people as a means to an end. Their chemistry works out a little too well in "O, R-V, I N-V U."
- Only Friend: To PJ, until the movies (excluding "Buddy Building" and "Puppy Love"—see Chuck Cunningham Syndrome here). See Living Emotional Crutch.
- Red Is Heroic: The most traditionally heroic character of both the show and the movies, he always wears a red hoodie or shirt.
- Shared Family Quirks: When Max hits puberty, he inherits the Goofy laugh, which embarrasses him greatly.
- Shipper on Deck: Very supportive when PJ wants to get with Rose Deckenbloom. Also, he doesn't actively support the relationship before it happens, but he definitely appears smug that PJ got Beret Girl instead of Bobby. He's also rather supportive of Goofy and Sylvia in the sequel; at first, it's just because he hopes she'll keep Goofy busy so he doesn't start bugging him and his friends, but toward the end he's genuinely supportive.
- Shorter Means Smarter: The shortest character and also the smartest in terms of ideas.
- Silly Rabbit, Idealism Is for Kids!: He is extremely optimistic in the show, even glossing over possible negative consequences. But by the movies, he's even more negative than PJ, though he seems to have gotten somewhat better in the sequel.
- Spotlight-Stealing Squad: The show had an ensemble cast giving both fathers and sons roughly equal attention. Max was actually in fewer episodes than either Goofy or Pete and was not any (or much) more important than PJ. In the movies, the focus is all about him, even in the sequel when Goofy and PJ are the ones getting Love Interests and bettering themselves/starting to feel better.
- Straight Man and Wise Guy: A relatively mutual partnership with PJ, though Max is the wise guy more often due to his shortsightedness.
- Wacky Parent, Serious Child: Serious Child to Goofy's wacky parent. He's not very serious on the show, but he becomes more jaded in the movies. Even on the show, however, he's certainly more serious than Goofy.
- White Gloves: Just like his dad.
Peter Pete Sr.
The self-centered and tricky husband of Peg and father of PJ and Pistol. He is the next door neighbor of the Goofs, and often brings Goofy along on schemes.
- Abusive Parents: Is very psychologically abusive towards PJ, although he's not abusive towards Pistol.
- Adaptational Heroism. Pete was made a far nicer guy in the series than his typical portrayals. Not especially nice mind you, he's still a Jerk Ass, but he's not an outright villain.
- Aesop Amnesia: His "I'm a terrible parent" breakdown in "Axed By Addition", a very early episode (first by some counts) had no effect whatsoever on how he treated PJ in the rest of the series. Or even the rest of the episode, once he found out PJ wasn't really dying. He more or less learned the lesson again in "From Air to Eternity", and then the movies came around.
- Alliterative Name/Repetitive Name: Like all of the examples on this show, he is never actually referred to by his full name, just separately as "Pete(r)" and "Mr. Pete."
- Ambition Is Evil: Providing an Abusive Parent contrast to Goofy, he is the person of the main cast most interested in business success.
- Anti-Hero: He's not a good person by any means, and he does have a conflict with all of the other male characters on the show, but he also has standards and is treated like a protagonist by the POV shifts. Despite causing the lion's share of problems for everyone including himself, many of which are at least partly intentional, he has shown that he can do the right thing on several fleeting occasions.
- Aww, Look! They Really Do Love Each Other: Pete and Peg have a few of these moments, "Gymnauseum" and "Peg o' the Jungle" in particular, where Pete goes out of his way to stay with Peg.
- Big Eater: In one episode he pretended to go on a diet. When he received power bars in the mail he ate six in one sitting, which Peg described as "snacking between snacks". His response when he heard he was only supposed to eat one per meal?
Pete: Well, then you better get cooking. I've eaten a half dozen of these; that's six meals!
- Book Dumb: He's a very clever Manipulative Bastard and a Consummate Liar to boot, but he is also a Malaproper who apparently never finished high school. He cannot accept that this trait may have been passed on to his son.
- Bumbling Dad: He isn't always abusive. Sometimes, he just screws things up for his family by accident.
- Cats Are Mean: Whilst his design was tweaked a bit for the series, Pete traditionally has always been a cat. He's also definitely mean.
- The Chew Toy: Suffers lots of punishment at the hands of the universe, but considering the way he treats his son and his neighbors, it's very funny.
- Consummate Liar: He manages to get a decent income on a used car lot he sells broken if not entirely useless cars on, and to repeatedly trick his fairly smart neighbor kid, and his own son, who is completely aware (first-hand) of how much of a Jerkass he is, though his lies do end up found out by the end of most episodes.
- Cranky Neighbor: It can be trying living next door to Goofy, the Lethally Stupid Cloudcuckoolander. However, he becomes cranky at smaller things, like Goofy's Verbal Tics, and it's shown in the pilot that at least part of his animosity stems from Goofy making him lose a game back in high school.
- Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: There are moments of this, but especially when he goes into a volcano to rescue Peg's first anniversary gift in "Peg o' the Jungle".
- Demoted to Extra: In A Goofy Movie where he's only in about a third of the scenes, but especially the sequel, where he's only in two scenes.
- Doting Parent: He generally spoils Pistol and never punishes her, but he's not doting towards PJ at all.
- Evil Sounds Deep: Maybe not truly "evil", but obviously one of the meanest characters in the series, and also has a very low voice, especially compared to his son.
- Fat and Skinny: The fat to Goofy's skinny. He's played as the cynical leader.
- Fat Bastard: A big Jerkass and one of the two fattest characters in the series.
- Fat Cat: As in all of his appearances.
- Financial Abuse: Repeatedly harms PJ financially, whether by stealing/withholding money, using him as free advertising, or forcing him to do hard labor for nothing or essentially nothing. He'll occasionally do the first two things to Pistol as well.
- Four Philosophy Ensemble: The cynic, because he's both generally antagonistic and negative.
- Freudian Excuse: He had one for becoming so angry about "When the Saints Go Marching In" in "Dr. Horatio's Magic Orchestra" and one for wanting to tear down the mini-golf in "Tee for Two", but the biggest example is that much of his animosity towards Goofy (and by extension, Max) stems from Goofy accidentally making Pete lose the big football game in high school.
- Goofy Print Underwear: When his underwear is exposed it is usually a pair of brightly-colored boxers with hearts on it.
- Hair-Trigger Temper: Sometimes doing something seemingly innocuous can send him on a screaming tirade. This helps explain why PJ is so terrified of him.
- Happily Married: A few episodes do draw attention to this, and Pete does really love Peg, to the point where the idea that his marriage could be threatened is one of the few things that can get him to straighten up and into action.
- Hate Sink: His unlikable personality and poor treatment of other characters makes his schemes' failures all the more satisfying, along with his Chew Toy status. Downplayed in that Pete does have some, albeit infrequent, intentionally sympathetic moments.
- Henpecked Husband: Sometimes Peg can be very pushy with him. How sympathetic he is in this department depends on the episode, but usually Peg has a very good reason for her behavior (such as trying to protect her children).
- Honest John's Dealership: He runs "Honest Pete's Used Cars", which sells broken if not useless cars.
- Hypocrite: He holds other people to standards he doesn't even try to reach himself and will freely insult people for seeming to possess character flaws he also has. One of the biggest examples is the fact that he's shown to be afraid of heights on multiple occasions and lies to PJ about it, guilt-tripping him for being a "phony" and for being afraid of heights himself in "From Air to Eternity".
- Hypocritical Heartwarming: Sure, he can push PJ around and publicly humiliate him all he wants, but if someone outside his family does it it's completely unacceptable, even if it's an accident.
- It's All About Me: He generally doesn't even consider how anyone else will be affected by his behavior, just whether it's good for him in the end.
- Jerkass: He is simultaneously a Cranky Neighbor, a Toxic Friend, an Abusive Parent, a Manipulative Bastard, a Hypocrite, and a scam artist.
- Jerk with a Heart of Gold: A rare occurrence, but he would occasionally slip into being one of these when the writers were feeling generous. His Pet the Dog moments at the end of "Tee for Two" and during "Puppy Love", and his Aww, Look! They Really Do Love Each Other moments with Peg are the best examples of this.
- Jerk with a Heart of Jerk: When the writers are feeling evil. Most notably in "Axed By Addition" where he spends most of the episode trying to apologize to PJ while in succession, choosing self-preservation over redemption, changing his mind for a self-centered reason, and immediately forgetting the lesson he learned.
- Lack of Empathy: He sees the other characters most often as means to an end and either doesn't notice or doesn't care how much anguish he causes any of them until something drastic happens, and even then it's more about him trying to keep them in his life than actually caring how they feel. He does display empathy to the little boy who lost at mini-golf in "Tee for Two", however.
- Large Ham: He's fairly subdued when he's in control... but if he starts to lose even a little, he steals the show with his hamminess.
- Laser-Guided Karma: Whatever it is Pete does wrong, you can bet he'll end up suffering for it.
- Lazy Bum: If he wants something done, he usually chooses between tricking Goofy into doing it for him or enslaving PJ (and occasionally also Max). If he's feeling a bit more generous to PJ, he'll actually bribe him and Pistol into doing the work for him. He will whine whenever Peg expects him to do something, and will blatantly criticize anyone else for being lazy.
- Lazy Husband: He gets upset whenever Peg asks him to do something, while taking for granted that she will do the housework. However, he is more often seen deliberately pushing around his son and neighbor than his wife. In "Mrs. Spoonerville" Pete tries to avert this... but fails, and eventually resorts to bribing his children to do the housework for him, which he is then called out on.
- Malaproper: To the point that in "Good Neighbor Goof", PJ emulates his attitude (so that he can be friends with Max) and adds the malapropisms.
- Manipulative Bastard: Manipulates his neighbors and his son on multiple occasions, which changes style depending on their weaknesses. This is Lampshaded in "Fool's Gold:"
Goofy: Trust me!
Pete: Well, okay... but you better not mean what I mean when I say that!
- Mega Neko: The logical conclusion of Fat Cat and Petting Zoo People.
- Miles Gloriosus: He claims he used to be a champion wrestler in "The Incredible Bulk", and that he has done countless acrobatic feats in "From Air to Eternity." He makes these up completely just for bragging purposes, and they do come to bite him in the butt later.
- Not So Different: From Max. He clearly thinks Max is inferior, but the truth is Max has the same level of guile, ambition, and leadership that Pete does. In "O, R-V, I N-V U," Pete does see the similarities between him and Max, and their relationship ends up working a little too well.
- Oo C Is Serious Business: In both "For Pete's Sake" and "Terminal Pete," PJ is wholly confused by Pete being nice and attentive to him. Pete acts that way in those episodes because he thinks he's going to die.
- Papa Wolf: When PJ isn't in life-threatening danger, Pete is an absolute Jerkass to him. But when he is (at least as far as Pete knows), Pete becomes very concerned and does everything he can to save him. He also shows this attitude towards Pistol in "Three Ring Bind."
- Parental Favoritism: When PJ and Pistol are in focus, Pete invariably treats PJ like dirt and Pistol like a princess (or is implied to). When PJ and Pistol are not in focus, Pete usually treats them equally... both with either negligence or civil distance. But in the many episodes where he mistreats exactly one child, regardless of focus, it's always PJ.
- The Patriarch: He's the manly man who runs the house, takes tyrannical authority over his Nice Guy son while holding him to high expectations, and seems to believe that his son deserves to be treated by a different standard than his wife and daughter. He's also quick to jump into action any time anyone in his family is in danger.
- Real Men Wear Pink: Pete has purple pajamas and pink bunny slippers. And the luxury sports car he wanted in one episode was colored Cherry Pink.
- Screw the Rules, I Have Money!: Has on multiple occasions used his money to try to push his own selfish agenda. "Tee for Two" is a big example, where he almost managed to get the mini-golf course torn down just because he was a sore loser.
- Sensitive Guy and Manly Man: The manly man to PJ's sensitive guy. He has a deep voice, stereotypically manly interests, and an aggressive personality.
- Slimeball: He's a narcissistic Manipulative Bastard, who simultaneously tries to feign trustworthiness around others and behaves in a very uncouth manner.
- Small Name, Big Ego: Pete is convinced that he is smarter than everyone else when in many ways he's in the bottom two, and in general a far better catch than he actually is. He also seems to believe that his bad-to-mediocre parenting is worth sharing or winning awards for as shown in A Goofy Movie and "Meanwhile, Back at the Ramp."
- Spotlight-Stealing Squad: Despite the fact that the show is called Goof Troop and for the most part has an ensemble cast, Pete has more focus episodes than anyone else does, mainly because he's both a Manipulative Bastard and The Chew Toy. However, he suffers Demoted to Extra worst in the movies of the Rotating Protagonists.
- Stout Strength: A physically strong person, although he is also very lazy.
- Took a Level in Kindness: Downplayed. While Pete never stops being a jerk, he is considerably more friendly to Goofy in the movies, and has seemingly mellowed out a bit. He gives Goofy fatherly advice (albeit bad advice) and reaches out to him as a friend, often with no obvious benefit to himself aside from companionship.
- Toxic Friend Influence: In A Goofy Movie, he gives Goofy parenting tips, which generally make his relationship with Max worse, unsurprisingly given their respective parenting archetypes.
- Ugly Guy, Hot Wife: With Peg, who is much more beautiful than he is both inside and out.
- Vitriolic Best Buds: With Goofy, although Pete's the only one who's actively antagonistic.
- White Gloves: Just like all versions of the character.
Peter "PJ" Pete Jr.
The anxious and longsuffering son of Pete and Peg and brother of Pistol. He is the next door neighbor of the Goof family and Max's best friend. He is often dragged into Max's schemes as a sidekick. In A Goofy Movie
, he befriends Bobby. In An Extremely Goofy Movie
, he gets together with Beret Girl.
Voiced by: April Winchell
The wise and influential wife of Pete and mother of PJ and Pistol. She is the next door neighbor to the Goof family. She serves as a supporting role on the show. She isn't present in the movies.
- Action Mom: To an extent, but she is capable of punching out a guy twice her size. According to Pete in "Peg Of The Jungle", she lifts weights at the gym and has a black belt in karate.
- Alliterative Name: Named after a deliberately alliterative incarnation of Pete.
- Aww, Look! They Really Do Love Each Other: Pete and Peg have a few of these moments, "Gymnauseum" and "Peg o' the Jungle" in particular, where Pete goes out of his way to please her.
- Chuck Cunningham Syndrome: Disappeared, along with Pistol and the family pets, in the movies.
- Deadpan Snarker: When you're the Only Sane Woman, it's kind of hard not to be. Both Pete and Goofy find themselves on her receiving end, though Pete tends to get it more.
- Fiery Redhead: Has one hell of a temper, but only when there's reasonable cause to think wrongdoing is occurring.
- Fur Bikini: In "Peg Of The Jungle" she wears one as part of her jungle queen costume.
- Good Parents: Despite often being busy, Peg will not hesitate to step into action when she notices her husband acting out of line in regards to her children.
- Happily Married: Kinda. Her and Pete don't have the most stable of marriages, but Peg makes it very clear on numerous occasions that she does genuinely love him, and wouldn't trade him for anything else. He may be a jerk, but he's her jerk.
- Hartman Hips: Peg is probably among the curviest females in Disney history, with hips wider than her shoulders.
- Mama Bear: She goes to great lengths to protect her children from both outside threats and her husband, though sometimes she'll get this way about Goofy and Max too, and even Pete when something outside the family threatens him. Basically, she's the Mama Bear for the whole cast.
- Mistaken for Pregnant: In "And Baby Makes Three" everyone thinks she is pregnant, which comes as a surprise to Pete.
- Mood-Swinger: She can be cheerful and sweet and then terrifyingly angry in the same sentence and effortlessly move back and forth between them.
- No Accounting for Taste: So, what exactly is it about Pete she finds so attractive, anyway? He's not handsome or nice or responsible or even very competent, and she seems to be frustrated with him often. This was Lampshaded in "Gymnauseum."
- Not So Above It All: Though she's usually the most level-headed person in the cast, she does also have her moments where she's being just as insane as everyone else.
- Only Sane Woman: One of the two most levelheaded people in the cast, as well as the only voice of reason people actually listen to. She manages to push against the Competence Zone which is in full force for her husband and neighbor. Women Are Wiser, after all.
- Parental Substitute: To Max on some occasions, notably in "Educating Goofy" when Pete convinces him that Goofy is humiliating him on purpose and Peg's the one to give Max advice.
- Pink Means Feminine: Her default clothing includes a pink sweater. When she starts up a brief window washing business, her jumpsuit is also pink.
- Pretty in Mink: Has a jacket with a white fur collar that she wears in some of the winter episodes.
- Team Mom: Both by working as a Mama Bear for the entire cast and by exhibiting her wisdom.
- Tsundere: She's very kind for the most part, but she also gets very angry. You do not want to see her when she's angry.
- Ugly Guy, Hot Wife: With Pete, she's not just more beautiful on the outside.
- Women Are Wiser: Peg is the brains of the operation. She's definitely more the voice of reason in the cast than anyone else, especially when compared with her husband.
The bratty and hyperactive daughter of Pete and Peg and sister of PJ. She is the next door neighbor to the Goof family. She is a supporting character on the show. She does not appear in the movies.
- Ace Pilot: In "Hot Air", although everyone in the cast thinks she's too young.
- Action Girl: She has her moments, especially in her limelight episodes "Hot Air" (in which she becomes an Ace Pilot) and "Three Ring Bind" (in which she breaks animals out of a circus).
- Adorably Precocious Child: Despite being considerably younger, she has an intelligence on par with Max and PJ; it's just that she's usually much more wild and uncontrollable.
- Alliterative Name: Like Peg, she was named after a deliberately alliterative incarnation of Pete.
- Annoying Younger Sibling: To the point where PJ finds playing with her to be the most torturous chore of all.
- Bratty Half-Pint: Seems to enjoy getting her brother in trouble.
- Cheerful Child: In stark contrast to her neurotic and often morose brother, she's happy almost all the time. See Genki Girl.
- Chuck Cunningham Syndrome: Disappears with Peg and the family pets in the movies.
- Daddy's Girl: Pete loves to dote on Pistol. Pistol in turn loves to spend time with her father... sometimes. Which is still significantly more often than her brother and mother do.
- Fiery Redhead: Seems to be genetic, although generally Pistol isn't as hot-tempered as Peg simply because she's always happy.
- Gender Equals Breed: Resembles her mother more than her father.
- Genki Girl: She's so constantly hyper, the rest of her family finds her nearly impossible to keep up with.
- Girlish Pigtails: Of the twin-ponytail variety.
- Hair Decorations: Her ponytail holders.
- Little Miss Snarker: Sometimes. Usually she and PJ have little snarking conversations.
- Meaningful Name: A Pistol can be "a notably sharp, spirited, or energetic person".
- Motor Mouth: Is the fastest talker on the show.
- Sibling Yin-Yang: She's talkative, cheerful, hyperactive, and bratty, unlike her brother, PJ.
- Spoiled Brat: She gets everything she wants from her father, unlike her brother. At least Peg attempts to discipline her, but it usually doesn't work.
- Tiny Tyrannical Girl: Despite being tiny and very young, she's able to get most others to do what she wants, from her much older brother to her father, both of whom are physically quite large. While she doesn't normally threaten anything other than tattling, her persistence in asking for what she wants is enough for everyone in her family to either cave in or pass the baton.
- Vague Age: The consistent factor is "considerably younger than PJ", but her age has been stated as four, five, and six in various episodes.
Waffles and Chainsaw
The Goofs' cat. Not present in the movies.
- Ambiguous Gender: In some episodes, Waffles is male, and in others, Waffles is female. The female references happen early in the series, so it may have been a Retcon.
- Big Eater: It's very common to see Goofy or Max making or eating dinner and Waffles sitting by and mooching.
- Cats Are Mean: Reserved mainly for Chainsaw. Othewise he's mostly an ordinary cat.
- Chuck Cunningham Syndrome: Disappeared in the movies along with the Pete girls and Chainsaw.
- Female Feline, Male Mutt: Usually inverted. Waffles is generally portrayed as male.
The Petes' dog. Not present in the movies.
Robert "Bobby" Zimmeruski
Voiced by: Pauly Shore
Max and PJ's airheaded and rambunctious new friend in the movies. In A Goofy Movie
, he gets together with Stacey.
- Advertised Extra: In the first movie he had a minor role, but got significantly more screen time in the trailer than Pete and Roxanne (and PJ, who didn't appear at all).
- Ascended Extra: He had a minor albeit funny role in A Goofy Movie. Come the sequel he's promoted to a main character.
- Attention Whore: Always tries to draw attention to himself. Despite knowing it would be a bad thing to get caught, he has no qualms shouting "A little smokeage!" and howling onstage during the "Stand Out" stunt, and the contrast between his and PJ's reactions to Beret Girl is huge, even keeping in mind that they both liked her. As is how they behaved when Max called them "serious athletes".
- Breakout Character: Bobby is a very popular, quotable character within the A Goofy Movie fandom, especially for being a brand new Plucky Comic Relief character in about a fifth of the movie's scenes. Cue him being a main character in the sequel.
- Bunny-Ears Lawyer: A huge Cloud Cuckoo Lander but competent at both sports and stage productions.
- Chromatic Arrangement: He plays the laid-back green to Max (red) and PJ (blue) in An Extremely Goofy Movie.
- Cloud Cuckoo Lander: This is the guy who got turned down by the Gammas for putting spoons and straws all over his body. Also, the can of spray cheese.
- Comic Trio: The stupid follower with Max (leader) and PJ (powerless) during the "Stand Out" stunt. Played With in that it was harder to get him to join than PJ.
- Cool Shades: Which he usually looks over or pulls up when he is caught off-guard by something, but otherwise keeps them on, regardless of his mood.
- Fun Personified: Super enthusiastic about almost everything, and makes jokes a lot.
- Hopeless Suitor: To Beret Girl, though he does seem to concede (begrudgingly) that he's not the one she wants.
- Keet: One of the smaller characters (along with Max), very cheerful and loud, and colorful too. He's not too In Touch with His Feminine Side, but he's not particularly manly either.
- Lennon Specs: He wears them to signal "unconventional but notable."
- Life of the Party: In "I-2-I" who at the party speaks the most often and the loudest and sprays his Trademark Favorite Food all over the room? Oh, yeah, Bobby.
- Perpetual Smiler: He grins and is generally cheerful in the principal's office. (Max moped and PJ looked like he was about to die of fright, for comparison.)
- Plucky Comic Relief: Almost everything he says or does is some kind of joke. He is a tension reliever around the far more serious Max and PJ, as is shown most apparently in the principal's office (but also in the lead-up to the Stand Out stunt). Notably, he is the only one of the three with no visible conflict with a parent figure.
- Redhead In Green: In An Extremely Goofy Movie as part of the Chromatic Arrangement, though he did have a very short cut.
- The Stoner: Implied as a form of Parental Bonus: in addition to having a Surfer Dude personality, he is shown contemplating everyone's gloves, seems awfully eager to eat at odd times (like in the middle of the principal's office or at the beginning of school), and says that he and Beret Girl can make "beautiful bongo music" together (emphasis his). He's also played by Pauly Shore, who is known for playing stoner characters.
- Surfer Dude: His easy-going, constantly calm personality and Totally Radical pattern of speech fit this perfectly, though the without-the-drugs part is... questionable.
- Totally Radical: Uses this sort of slang far more often than the other characters.
- True Companions: He becomes very close friends with Max and PJ in An Extremely Goofy Movie.
- White Gloves: He even lampshades it in An Extremely Goofy Movie by contemplating them.
Max's sweet and cute girlfriend and Stacey's best friend in A Goofy Movie
. Not present in An Extremely Goofy Movie
- Adorkable: She is just as socially awkward around Max as he is around her.
- Beauty Mark: She has one on her left cheek, just below her eye.
- Birds of a Feather: Like Max, she is fairly Adorkable and requires help from her friends to get together with him.
- Chuck Cunningham Syndrome: Disappears in An Extremely Goofy Movie, although she does later appear on House of Mouse.
- Girl Next Door: Roxanne is awkward, quiet, and cute, and likes Max for who he is rather than for who he pretends to be.
- Give Geeks a Chance: The entire purpose of Max pretending he knew Powerline in the first movie was to get Roxanne to like him. What he didn't know however, but the audience was already clued into, was that she already liked him.
- Hartman Hips: Most of her maturity in appearance comes from her hips.
- Heroes Want Redheads: Max's Love Interest.
- Living MacGuffin: She doesn't have as developed a personality as some other characters, but she is the entire reason Max was motivated to change the map on the road trip.
- Nice Girl: When everyone else laughs at Max for injuring himself, she instead asks if he's okay.
- Only One Name: Despite having a parent onscreen, but of course he doesn't get a name at all.
- Overprotective Dad: Her father is very physically intimidating, and only speaks to Max in angry grunts.
- Redhead In Green: Her traditional clothing has her wearing a turquoise shirt.
- Satellite Love Interest: For how much Max likes her, she doesn't really have much in the way of a personality, and exists almost solely to date him.
- The Ugly Guy's Hot Daughter: Her father does not look as much like a Petting Zoo Person as most of the other characters, looking far more like an actual dog. Roxanne, meanwhile, is pretty close in appearance to a human.

Roxanne's popular and chatty best friend in A Goofy Movie
. Gets together with Bobby at the end. Not present in An Extremely Goofy Movie.
- Chuck Cunningham Syndrome: Disappears in An Extremely Goofy Movie without explanation along with Roxanne.
- Cool Loser: Inverted. Fairly geeky but one of the most popular girls in school.
- Hollywood Nerd: Take away the glasses and braces and it's not hard to understand why she'd be popular—she's just as cute as Roxanne.
- Like Is, Like, a Comma: A side-effect of her Motor Mouth tendencies.
- Meganekko: Wears glasses but is seen as a target for affection by both Bobby and the black-haired Star Trek nerd.
- Motor Mouth: She tends to speak quickly and for somewhat long periods of time. In one early conversation with Roxanne, she says a very long run-on sentence at an incredibly rapid rate (even compared to her other dialogue) before she finally notices that Roxanne isn't listening.
- Nerds Are Sexy: See Hollywood Nerd and Meganekko. Her braces were also seen as an asset.
- Nice Hat: She wears a floral hat.
- Only One Name: But since she's the School Idol, everyone knows who "Stacey" is referring to.
- Satellite Character: The vast majority of her role in the movie is just helping Roxanne get together with Max.
- School Idol: She is student body president and receives continuous applause and hollering throughout her entire speech. A very friendly example who happily interacts with people everywhere on the popularity food chain.
- Shipper on Deck: Very supportive of Max and Roxanne's relationship.
- Spell My Name with an "S": The movie credits list her name as "Stacey", but fans spell it as "Stacy" just as often, and sometimes "Staci," even when writing reference material.

Bradley Uppercrust III
The main antagonist of An Extremely Goofy Movie
, a snobby and vicious sports team leader.
- Aristocrats Are Evil: The head of the most elite fraternity on campus is also a bully and cheater who commits multiple felonies.
- Arrogant Kung-Fu Guy: He does have a posse, although he's not very loyal to them. He still wants to put the "losers" in their place.
- Cheaters Never Prosper: The two biggest moments of cheating he does took what would have probably been an easy win and not only turned it into a loss but also ended up with him getting injured by his own teammate.
- Dick Dastardly Stops to Cheat: One can't help but wonder if it was really in Bradley's best interest to blast PJ into the next state. And it definitely wasn't for him to drop the giant X on Tank and leave him there.
- Faux Affably Evil: Tries to act polite to team prospects, though passive-aggressive to non-prospects and others, but never means any of it. He's ruthless enough to attempt to injure or kill his opponents so he can win and leave his right hand man to die.
- Graceful Loser: After stooping to every dirty trick he can think of to win the X Games, and losing, he... calmly congratulates Max for defeating him and shakes his hand. He's completely sincere about it.
- It's All About Me: It's soon clear that he doesn't really care one lick about his teammates and only cares about getting attention for himself.
- Jerk Jock: A college example, who also takes the jerk aspect to a downright ruthless level.
- Lean and Mean: He's thinner than most of the other characters except Goofy, and is also the Faux Affably Evil Jerk Jock.
- Preppy Name: His last name is "Uppercrust", and he even has the standard "III" legacy label.
- Privileged Rival: He is implied to be a legacy as well as being considered "the King", to the point that the main characters knew who he was before actually meeting him, and apparently the leader of the most well-known, powerful fraternity on campus. He's also a judgmental Jerk Jock whose outright dismissal of Max's friends pushed him firmly into rival position, which is a good thing because he's also a dirty cheater.
- Sir Not-Appearing-in-This-Trailer: Despite being the main antagonist, Bradley does not appear at all in the movie trailer.
- Smug Snake: Treating his "friends" with disdain was definitely the cause of his downfall.
- Soft-Spoken Sadist: He speaks in a calm, even affable, tone, but is not only a Jerk Jock and a dirty cheater but also willing to endanger the lives of other competitors, including his own dragon, just so that he can win.
- They Call Me Mister Tibbs: Despises his name being diminished to "Brad".

PJ's snarky and artsy girlfriend in An Extremely Goofy Movie
Goofy's passionate and good-humored girlfriend in An Extremely Goofy Movie
- Adorkable: Oh, she tries to hide it. But the slightest prodding at her nerdier side brings it out full force.
- Birds of a Feather: She and Goofy are both Disco Dan types.
- Closet Geek: She tries to retain a professional attitude, but when Goofy starts talking to her she switches into Fangirl mode.
- Disco Dan: What made Goofy fall for her primarily is her passion for '70s memorabilia.
- Fangirl: When anything '70s-related is mentioned she becomes very excited, to the point she ends up doing an embarrassing dance in the library and being caught.
- Finishing Each Other's Sentences: She is able to finish Goofy's sentences early on, indicating their level of chemistry and aiding him with the awkwardness of asking her out.
- Hartman Hips: Apparent when she dances at the disco.
- Hello, Nurse!: Causes a collective Jaw Drop from every single male within her immediate vicinity when she shows up in her disco outfit.
- Heroes Want Redheads: Goofy's Love Interest.
- Hot Librarian: See Hello, Nurse!, though she does still look very good with her glasses and her normal hairstyle.
- Nerds Are Sexy: Being a college librarian and fan of 70s memorabilia are attributes that get her to click with Goofy. The fact she's also a rather attractive woman seems to be a bonus in his eyes.
- Redhead In Green: Her disco outfit is green from head to toe.
- Second Love: To Goofy. And apparently a very successful one as he says his first date with her is the best night of his life.
- Significant Green-Eyed Redhead: See Heroes Want Redheads, and also one of the only characters with visibly colored eyes at all.
- Tsundere: She's a kind and fun person most of the time, but when she gets angry after being Stood Up she almost seems like a different person.
Bradley's loud and burly right-hand man in An Extremely Goofy Movie
- Boisterous Bruiser: Notably big enough to dwarf and pick up PJ, as well as being loud, confident, and tough.
- Dark-Skinned Blond: He has a tan complexion and blond hair, and loosely fits the Jerk Jock DSB archetype.
- The Dog Bites Back: After Bradley betrays him and Max's team wins the X-Games, Tank slingshots Bradley into the X-Games blimp.
- The Dragon: He is shown to be the Gammas' right hand man, and, other than Bradley, is the only one who's fleshed-out at all. However, he eventually has a Heel-Face Turn.
- Dumb Muscle: To a degree, although he isn't so dumb that he can't understand that Bradley betrayed him.
- Heel-Face Turn: Near the end of the X-Games finals he joins Max due to Bradley leaving him behind.
- Meaningful Name: The Boisterous Bruiser of the Gammas, or their "tank."
- Mistreatment-Induced Betrayal: When the giant X falls down on him and bursts into flames, Bradley doesn't save him. Max does.
- The Nicknamer: His tendency to give nicknames to everyone is almost a Verbal Tic. He can hardly go a sentence without it.
- No Indoor Voice: Part of being a Boisterous Bruiser.
- Only One Name/Only Known by Their Nickname: As a contrast to Bradley's insistence on his full name, legacy label and all.
