It is difficult to classify the characteristics of the Goof into columns of the physical and mental, because they interweave, reflect, and enhance one another. Therefore it will probably be best to mention everything all at once. Think of the Goof as a composite of an everlasting optimist, a gullible Good Samaritan, a half-wit, and a shiftless, good-natured hick.note This little analysis has covered the Goof from top to toes, and having come to his end, I end.Goofy is one of the world's most iconic cartoon characters and the third member of Walt Disney's quintessential Power Trio, along with Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck.Goofy first appeared in a Mickey Mouse short, Mickey's Revue, in 1932. After a few appearances in Mickey's cartoons and joining up with Mickey and Donald in classics such as Mickey's Fire Brigade and Lonesome Ghosts, Goofy eventually starred in his own series of cartoons, with his voice provided by Pinto Colvig. When Colvig left Disney, Goofy was left without a voice, so Disney made the best of a bad situation and conceived the How to... shorts, where most of the dialogue was done by a narrator, with Goofy's voice provided mostly by stock audio. The concept of the How to.. shorts was so well received, that they are a staple of Disney and considered some of Goofy's best cartoons. One of them, The Art of Skiing, introduced his trademark Goofy Holler (YAAAAAA-HOO-HOO-HOO-HOOEY!).In comic books of the 1970s, he had a Super Hero alter ego, Super Goof. In the 1990s, he starred in a new TV series, Goof Troop, in which he and his son, Max, moved in next door to a Lighter and Softer version of Mickey's nemesis, Pete. This led to a movie based on the series; A Goofy Movie. Goofy is the only one of the Power Trio to get a full, non-segmented theatrical movie.One of the most noted qualities of Goofy's slapstick humour lies in the fact that when he does something guaranteed to result in Hilarity Ensues (which is just about everything he does), there is a blatantly obvious outcome as to how it will go wrong - for example, falling off a ledge, or crashing into something. The obvious outcome should never be the end of it, and must in itself lead to Disaster Dominoes that the audience did not see coming.Goofy also features in the Kingdom Hearts video game series as a shield-bearing knight and one of Sora's sidekicks alongside Donald.
