See also Goofy
Voiced by: Bill Farmer (English), Yu Shimaka (Japanese), Francisco Colmenero (Latin American Spanish/TV series), Carlos Segundo (Latin American Spanish/movies), Gérard Rinaldi (French)

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.
  • Adorkable: Thanks to his ditzy, clumsy and awkward, but well meaning and good natured personality and love for his son, Max. Also, he loves everything from the 70s.
  • Alliterative Name: Goofy Goof.
  • All-Loving Hero: He doesn't appear to have a bad bone in his body, and is always willing to help out.
  • 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. to Max's horror, he decides to enroll the same college as Max.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: Given Goofy being a kluzty, Nice Guy who is not all that bright, it wouldn't be hard to assume that Goofy being angry is not possible. Except, he is capable of being angry. Either when finding out his son lied to him in A Goofy Movie or throwing a horseshoe at Bradley in An Extremely Goofy Movie, Goofy is very capable of frightening Tranquil Fury when pushed too far.
  • Birds of a Feather: He and Sylvia are both Disco Dan types.
  • 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 in "Terminal Pete", he says he'll 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.
  • Dumbass Has a Point: In A Goofy Movie, while Goofy did basically force his son to go on the road trip, he had a right to be mad at Max for abusing his trust.
  • 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.
  • Glory Days: As shown in An Extremely Goofy Movie, his glory days were back when he was a college student in The '70s, and when he had to get his degree, he took the opportunity to relive those days, much to Max's chagrin.
  • 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 Jerkass 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. Becomes deconstructed in An Extremely Goofy Movie, where his clumsiness ends up having serious consequences that it causes him to lose focus, deals serious damage to his relationship with Max, and prevents him from ever having a future.
  • Lethal Chef: Don't eat Goofy's "Goofy Burgers". You'll regret it. The one he made for PJ punched Waffles in the face. The one he made for Max literally ignites Chainsaw's mouth on fire. He also made Pete a peach pit pie in "Goof Under My Roof" that didn't even look baked, and "shoefly pie" in "Come Fly with Me" that Peg wanted him to leave in Tacoma (across the country).
  • 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.
  • Like Father, Unlike Son: Goofy is selfless, stupid, and wacky, unlike Max.
  • 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. One bad instance was where he and Pete were buying food at the grocery store, and Goofy didn't understand the simple instruction of buying chicken. What he did?
    Pete: Goof... when I told you to buy chicken... I DIDN'T MEAN BUY ''A'' CHICKEN!!!
  • Made of Iron: The only way he manages to survive the troubles he gets himself into.
  • Malaproper: Often.
    Goofy: Don't worry! I'm the decimated driver!
    Goofy: Easy, Pete, or I'll have to bring you to your senses! You're historical!
  • Manchild: 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. He is also seen playing with the toys in the waiting room in "Terminal Pete".
  • 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.
  • My Beloved Smother: In the second film, he acts as such towards Max, who finds it very embarrassing.
  • New Job as the Plot Demands: Has no regular occupation, but rather does various jobs depending on the episode.
  • 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.
  • O.O.C. Is Serious Business: In A Goofy Movie, Goofy is initially in catatonic shock when he discovers that Max had been manipulating him into going to Los Angeles, which gives way into legitimate anger when Max wastes a second chance to prove himself worthy of trust.
  • Papa Wolf: Despite being embarrassing to Max, Goofy has shown he is willing to go to great lengths to keep his son safe. Doesn't matter if it's a raging river that leads to a waterfall or rushing into burning structure, Goofy will protect his son.
  • 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.
  • Porky Pig Pronunciation: Goofy will often mangle a complicated word and settle on a simple one, when he doesn't just absent-mindedly Malaprop.
  • Repetitive Name: Like all of the examples on this show, he is never referred to by full name, just as "Goofy" and "Mr. Goof."
  • 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."
  • Tranquil Fury: In A Goofy Movie, after Max fails the Secret Test of Character that Goofy set up. The sight of seeing Goofy sullen, serious, and genuinely angry immediately lets Max know how bad things have gotten.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: With Pete of the one-sided variety; Pete hates him but he doesn't hate Pete back. In the movies though they seem more like actual friends.
  • 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.

    Max Goof
Voiced by: Dana Hill (English/Age 11), Jason Marsden (English/Age 14/18+), Chika Sakamoto (Japanese/Age 11), Kappei Yamaguchi (Japanese/Age 14/18+), Carola Vazquez (Latin America/Age 11), Luis Daniel Ramírez (Latin American Spanish/Age 14/18+), Christophe Lemoine (French)

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. However, due to being insecure and somewhat of a rebel, he isn't too shy about lying to his crush to impress her, or deceiving his dad who admittedly doesn't always listen to him.
  • Be Careful What You Wish For: In order to keep his father from further embarrassing him and give a weak link to the Gamma team, Max convinces to join the Gamma fraternity. He comes to regret this as Goofy (thanks to manipulations from the Gammas) wins against his son in a game.
  • 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: 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.
  • Calling the Old Man Out: In the movie, Max calls out his father for either forcing him to go on trip he specifically said he never wanted to go on or trying to make always be in his son's life to a My Beloved Smother extreme.
  • Chick Magnet: Throughout his life, Max has attracted a number of girls.
    • Roxanne, who is his most recurring Love Interest, had a crush on him before and after his music performance in A Goofy Movie.
    • Lisa is a presumed Alpha Bitch from A Goofy Movie who at first is dismissive of Max...but begins to flirt with him after his Powerline inspired performance.
    • He has a girlfriend, Mona, from the second Micky Mouse Christmas special.
    • And in An Extremely Goofy Movie, three girls are shown to have taken a liking to him to some degree note .
  • 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.
  • Easily Forgiven: Twice in the first movie. He lied to both Roxanne and Goofy, yet after explaining the whole situation with Goofy and telling Roxanne the truth in the end, he escapes punishment from his father, who decided to go along with Max's plan, and receives a date from Roxanne at the end.
  • 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.
  • Hairstyle Inertia: Since Goof Troop, Max has maintained the same Messy Hair style to his adulthood.
  • Heroes Want Redheads: Roxanne, his (thus far) most prominent and most well known Love Interest.
  • Heterosexual Life-Partners: 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: Max doesn't like being compared to Goofy, to the point it's actually a Berserk Button for him.
  • 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.
  • Insecure Love Interest: During A Goofy Movie, Max despairingly believed that Roxanne thought he was a nobody and wouldn't like him unless he did something special and amazing.
  • Jerkass Has a Point:
    • He definitely acted like a royal prick, but he had every right to call out Goofy for practically forcing his son to go on a vacation he obviously didn't want to go on since he had other plans, not to mention it was dropped on him out of the blue without any consultation or even asking his opinion about it.
    • The sequel has Max give his father a very harsh "The Reason You Suck" Speech, but making an accurate point that Goofy is too clingy towards his son and needs his own life.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Max can be selfish, bratty, and show disrespect towards his well-meaning father. However he does genuinely love his dad, and learns to appreciate him...for a while. Even in the movies when he wants less to do with his dad, he still loves him deeply he just wants his independence. Other than that, Max is optimistic, understanding, cheerful, endearing, and friendly.
  • Like Father, Like Son: He is often told that he's very much like his father, and his response is always along the lines of "Please don't say that, Dad." In spite of the denial, Max's mannerisms echoes Goofy's at times including Goofy's laugh and clumsiness.
  • Like Father, Unlike Son: Max is selfish, clever, and cool, unlike Goofy.
  • 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.
    • He's this for his father. When Max went to college, Goofy became a wreck.
  • 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 has his share of issues with 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.
  • Rude Hero, Nice Sidekick: Max the hero is somewhat selfish, sly, and insensitive at times, while his sidekick PJ is honest, polite, and forgiving.
  • Scholarship Student: His single father's job doesn't make a lot of money, so this is at least implied.
  • Shared Family Quirks: When Max hits puberty, he inherits the Goofy laugh, which embarrasses him greatly. Although, by Extremely, he has appeared to embrace this laugh.
  • 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.
  • Socially Awkward Hero: He tends to be relatively calm in the face of danger, but gets tongue-tied when he talks to Roxanne and is very self-conscious about his reputation.
  • 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.
  • Strong Family Resemblance: Aside from some differences in their faces and head shapes, Max looks like a miniature version of his father. Their personalities are completely different, however. This was lampshaded many times in "Meanwhile, Back at the Ramp," much to Max's chagrin.
  • Took a Level in Jerkass: Becomes this in An Extremely Goofy Movie, where he disowns Goofy.
  • 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.
See also Pete
Voiced by: Jim Cummings (English), Toru Ohira (Japanese), Francisco Colmenero (Latin American Spanish), Alain Dorval (French)

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: He belittles, manipulates, browbeats, and enslaves PJ, although he's usually not abusive towards Pistol.
  • Adaptational Heroism: Compared to his typical portrayals, Pete comes across as a far nicer guy in this series. Not especially nice, as he's still a Jerkass, but he's not an outright villain.
  • Aesop Amnesia: Those who've watched ahead will know that his "I'm a terrible parent" breakdown in "Axed By Addition" (one of the earlier episodes) has no effect whatsoever on how he treats PJ 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 learns the lesson again in "From Air to Eternity", and then the movies came around.
  • Alliterative 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 rude, dishonest, selfish, and antagonistic toward Goofy, PJ, and Max to varying degrees, but he also has lines he won't cross 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.
  • Aw, 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: Pete's tendency to overeat is highlighted in "Gymnauseum", "As Goof Would Have It", and "To Catch a Goof", all of which involve Pete trying to go on a diet, at least briefly, as well as eating tons of food on-screen. This also shows up as a background trait.
  • 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. In a rare few like "Puppy Love", he actually tries to be a good father, while in several others like "Pete's Day at the Races", he's at least not actively malicious. He's just so clueless about his children's needs that he still causes them problems accidentally or as collateral damage.
  • 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 repeatedly trick his fairly smart neighbor kid and his own son, the latter of whom 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.
  • Jerkass Hasa Point: Even though he didn't have the best intentions and came off as a jerk, he does bring to light about Max duping Goofy by changing the directions of the map in the hot tub. When Goofy says he doesn't need to check the map and he knows Max loves him, Pete says "my son respects me". Whether he's mistaking P.J.'s fear of him as respect or not, he makes a valid point, he's not questioning Max's love for his father, he's questioning his respect for him.
  • 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 Aw, 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.
  • Like Father, Unlike Son: Pete is dishonest, arrogant, and nasty, unlike PJ.
  • 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 Funny Animal.
  • 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.
  • O.O.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.
  • Unknown Rival: One-sided competition on his part defines his relationship with Goofy.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: With Goofy, although Pete's the only one who's actively antagonistic.
  • Wanted a Gender-Conforming Child: Pete regularly pushes PJ into doing manly activities such as playing team sports, going camping, or acting tough to impress a girl, which he invariably hates, fails horribly, or both.
  • White Gloves: Just like all versions of the character.

    Peter "PJ" Pete Jr.
Voiced by Rob Paulsen (English), Urara Takano (Japanese), Fernando Manzano (Latin American Spanish/TV series and movie 1), Eduardo Garza (Latin American Spanish/movie 2), Alexis Tomassian (French)

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.

  • Acrofatic: Very overweight, but decent at skateboarding, biking, sledding, and dancing, able to run nearly as fast as Max, and able to make risky jumps when the situation calls for it.
  • Adorkable: Takes both the "dork" part and the "adorable" part pretty far, being a baby-faced fat kid with an extremely socially awkward personality that makes Max look like a smooth operator and a voice that never changed.
  • Alliterative Name: His first and last name begin with "P".
  • Ambiguous Disorder: His characterisation as a anxious and insecure Bad Liar with Extreme Doormat tendencies, poor social skills and a monotone voice, who is also passive, emotional and very loyal to his only friend Max suggest that he has some sort of mental disorder, though it is never specified what it is.
  • Bad Liar: Usually he will not even consider lying a possibility, attempt to find a way to technically not lie, evade the direct questions entirely, or come up with a ridiculous explanation such as "I'm trying to see how hot I can make my knees!" (Of course, Goofy believed him about that one anyway). As Pete puts it in "To Heir Is Human", his problem is "a bad habit of telling the truth." Any time a lie helps PJ reach his goal, it's entirely Max's doing.
  • Beatnik: Seems "New PJ" assimilated to Beret Girl by incorporating her mannerisms and fashion sense.
  • Beauty = Goodness: Downplayed. While his body doesn't look any better than his father's, when it comes to their faces, there's no contest.
  • Because You Were Nice to Me: His Undying Loyalty to Max blossoms because Max went out of his way to show him compassion and even help him out of his situation by providing him with a chance to play, respite from his chores, and a friend.
  • Being Good Sucks: ...Because if you're aware enough to be consistently selfless, gentle, and patient on purpose then everyone will treat you like an Extreme Doormat, The Drag-Along and a No Respect Guy.
  • Beleaguered Assistant: Sometimes PJ is the only reason Max is alive, and he gets basically no credit. How okay he is with his position depends on the episode, but sometimes he openly complains the entire time.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: A textbook Gentle Giant, with some Extreme Doormat tendencies too... but on a few occasions, even he goes for revenge.
  • Big Eater: Shows up as a background trait in "Lethal Goofin'", "Axed by Addition", and "Big City Blues", and is often discussed through short jokes like this line from An Extremely Goofy Movie:
    Max: Hey, Peej, isn't ten hot dogs enough? Pass 'em over here!
  • Big Fun: He develops into a mild version in An Extremely Goofy Movie after spending the majority of the series timid, cynical, and unhappy. He's still introverted and down-to-earth... but now he's not afraid to cut loose in public.
  • Birds of a Feather: He and Beret Girl both care more about personality than looks, have a somewhat cynical attitude, and are interested in beatnik poetry. He and Rose Deckenbloom are both sweet and incredibly timid, and understand what it's like to be belittled.
  • Book Dumb: He is repeatedly in danger of failing classes, has no sense of direction, and has difficulty reading the manuals he insists people should read, but he also has more common sense and creative prowess (which was a Hidden Depth) than most of the other characters.
  • Butt-Monkey: Not only does he suffer some physical harm as a result of clumsiness or other characters' malice or inattentiveness (which admittedly happens less to him than his dad or his best friend's dad), he is constantly pushed around, ignored, insulted, and betrayed for reasons that are nonexistent, flimsy, or totally false. This is played seriously and eventually rectified. See No Respect Guy.
  • The Cassandra: PJ, both overly honest and the Only Sane Man, has his comments disbelieved or dismissed far more often than they should be. See No Respect Guy.
  • Chromatic Arrangement: In An Extremely Goofy Movie, he's the uptight blue with Max (red) and Bobby (green).
  • Comic Trio: During the "Stand Out" stunt, with Max (leader) and Bobby (follower), he plays the powerless protesting party. Played With in that it took less to get him involved than it did Bobby.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Generally a more covert example when it comes to parent-snarking, but he's usually willing to snark to Max's face, and on some occasions to Pete's as well.
  • The Drag-Along: Almost always reluctant to join Max on his plans (often with good reasons), but always does so anyway. Lampshaded in "Slightly Dinghy" in the second half of the Gilligan Cut.
  • Earn Your Happy Ending: He suffers more emotional pain during the series and first movie than any other character, but in the second movie gets the ending he needs and deserves.
  • The Eeyore: Often is understandably gloomy, and his pessimism can manifest in despair, especially in his focus episodes and the pilot, but he can tread closer to a remarkably compassionate Stepford Snarker when he's partnered with Max.
  • Evil Sounds Deep: Inverted. He is extremely kind and, as becomes clear by the second movie if not the first, a countertenor.
  • Extreme Doormat: Usually does everything that both Max and Pete tell him to, often reluctantly and unhappily, but with no resistence to speak of. Averted when Beware the Nice Ones comes up.
  • Fat and Skinny: The fat to Max's skinny. He's played as a pessimistic critic of Max's plans.
  • Fat Best Friend: The insecure pal to Max, almost exclusively, primarily not for his weight, though the other types (confident and wacky) show up rarely, either when he's alone with Max or after his Character Development, the first more than the second.
  • Fat Cat: Shaped very similarly to his dad, despite all of their differences.
  • Foil: To Bobby. While PJ is rather quiet, cautious, and rather reluctant to join Max on his schemes, Bobby is eagerly willing to participate in them, has a louder and more masculine voice, and is more reckless. Incidentally, he's the one who ends up with Beret Girl in the end in contrast to Bobby who is too impulsive to successfully get Beret Girl to not turn him down.
  • Four-Philosophy Ensemble: The realist, due to the combination of his negative attitude and his strong moral code.
  • Friendless Background: Max and PJ were eleven when they first met, and PJ states in "Goodbye Mr. Goofy" that Max is the Only Friend he's ever had. When combined with his insecurities and the state of his home life, Max becoming his Living Emotional Crutch was close to inevitable.
  • Gender Equals Breed: Resembles his father more than his mother.
  • Gentle Giant: One of the two fattest (and three biggest) characters in the series, he is completely passive, sensitive, and kind. He never puts his own self-interest above that of another character.
  • Has a Type: Though he has infrequently shown mild attraction to other characters, he only ever falls head-over-heels in love with girls who recite poetry in front of him. The way they look seems to be entirely moot.
  • Heterosexual Life-Partners: He's extremely close friends with Max in the show and the first movie. In the second movie, Bobby joins their group.
  • Hidden Depths: Due to his insecurities, there are quite a few traits that don't surface often. See The So-Called Coward and Beware the Nice Ones for some examples, although the most prominent example is probably that he's poetically inclined, which even surprised Max, who had been friends with him for seven years when it surfaced.
  • Hypercompetent Sidekick: Sometimes PJ is the only reason Max is alive, and he gets basically no credit. How okay he is with his position depends on the episode, and in some episodes he won't complain about it.
  • Insecure Love Interest: He says literally nothing to Beret Girl (being visibly stunned speechless every time) before she starts flirting with him, after which point he recites a poem about how no one notices fat people, no matter how they act. Then after she sympathetically and lovingly responds, asking him to dance, he immediately becomes a lot less insecure.
  • In Touch with His Feminine Side: He's shy, passive, emotional, and very interested in poetry to the point of getting a crush on someone who recited it twice. In contrast, he cannot stand many of the stereotypically "manly" activities his dad wants him to do. Notably, he was asked out by Beret Girl in the second movie.
  • Like Father, Unlike Son: PJ is honest, self-effacing, and friendly, unlike Pete.
  • Masculine Girl, Feminine Boy: With Beret Girl. They have a lot of things in common, but they also have a few major differences in that Beret Girl is bold, aggressive, and flirtatious, while PJ is a timid, passive Insecure Love Interest. The couple inverts No Guy Wants to Be Chased, as Beret Girl takes the lead at every step in their relationship and PJ enjoys this, in contrast to how Beret Girl was annoyed by Bobby's attempts at flirting moments beforehand. Beret Girl also has a significantly deeper voice than PJ, and is not much shorter, as well as going out of her way to protect him early on.
  • Mega Neko: He's a Gentle Giant cat person.
  • Nervous Wreck: Often shown to panic or tremble, consistently pessimistic and fearful—occasionally becoming petrified—and very emotionally vulnerable. This is played as an unfortunate result of his upbringing, and he gets significantly better by the end of the second movie.
  • Nice Guy: He is very loyal, honest, helpful, patient, forgiving, and on multiple occasions puts aside his own problems in order to be happy for Max. Unlike Goofy, he is not too dumb to realize he's getting a raw deal, though he doesn't complain about it that much.
  • No Respect Guy: He is one of the only two rational people in the cast along with Peg, his skepticism always loses to Max's optimism, even when he's right, and he is interrupted frequently and falsely accused on multiple occasions despite never doing anything to deserve it. Multiple episodes end with the realization that the plan he reluctantly went along with served no purpose, and many involve some sort of disaster he is unable to prevent because everyone just decides not to listen to him.
  • Not So Above It All: Though he is significantly more mature than Max, Pistol, and Bobby most of the time, he also has some moments of wackiness.
  • Only Known by Initials: Because he shares his father's name. Played for Laughs in "Cabana Fever" where Pistol refers to him as "a certain someone whose initials are P.J."
  • Only Sane Man: Of the characters who go on the most adventures, he is the only one with any common sense: Max is a Fearless Fool, Goofy is Too Dumb to Live, and Pete is too busy thinking about what will happen if his plans work to notice what will happen if they don't. He's The Drag-Along for a reason.
  • Out of Focus: In the first movie, he's only in about a third of the scenes and has very few lines and little screentime in most of those, though he is a main character again in the sequel, unlike his dad.
  • Repetitive Name: Like all the examples on the show, he is never actually referred to by his fall name—the fullest it ever gets is "Pete Jr." and we know his last name from context.
  • Rude Hero, Nice Sidekick: PJ is the more polite, honest, and forgiving sidekick to the sly, somewhat selfish, and, at times, insensitive hero Max.
  • Sensitive Guy and Manly Man: The sensitive guy to Pete's manly man. He has a high voice, generally unmanly interests, and a mostly passive personality.
  • Shipper on Deck: Very supportive of Max's relationship with Roxanne.
  • Shrinking Violet: He doesn't have enough courage to make friends with anyone other than Max (who opened up to him first) or Bobby (who seemed to meet him through Max), he is typically timid as a mouse around Pete, he needs someone to help him out both times he gets a crush on a girl because he's too petrified to ask her out, and he is very self-effacing. He gets significantly more confident after Beret Girl asks him to dance.
  • Sibling Yin-Yang: He's shy, melancholy, prudent, and nice, unlike his sister Pistol.
  • Sir Not-Appearing-in-This-Trailer: In the trailer for A Goofy Movie, though Roxanne and Pete weren't much better off.
  • The So-Called Coward: He's very cautious, pessimistic, and shy, and Pete repeatedly calls him names relating to cowardice... but he has risked his life on multiple occasions to protect Max.
  • Stepford Snarker: A remarkably compassionate variation in some episodes when he's paired up with Max, where he snarks the hardest when Max is either treating him inconsiderately or involving Pete with something, though in his own focus episodes he's more likely to be The Eeyore.
  • Stout Strength: Though he doesn't think of himself as very strong, he has fought off bullies before, and his father makes him do a lot of manual labor which is pretty intense.
  • Straight Man and Wise Guy: A mostly mutual relationship with Max, though he's more likely to be the straight man due to his cautiousness.
  • Strong Family Resemblance: Aside from some differences in their faces and head shapes, PJ looks like a miniature version of his father. Their personalities are completely different, however.
  • Took a Level in Cheerfulness: When Max befriends him in the pilot, he becomes less depressed, though still not particularly happy. Then after Beret Girl chooses him over Bobby in An Extremely Goofy Movie, he becomes much more confident, much more willing to show his true colors, much calmer (except for when he relapses), and much more enthusiastic. Most importantly of all, his life satisfaction level completely reverses from the beginning of the movie.
  • Undying Loyalty: To Max. Shown very clearly in "O R-V, I N-V U", "Talent to the Max", and "Tub Be or Not Tub Be", all of which involve Max either ignoring or deliberately dumping him (with reasons only the audience knows are false), and PJ going out of his way to help Max anyway.
  • The Unfavorite: His mother does treat him fairly, but his father outright abuses him (and is strict with him even on a good day) while spoiling his sister.
  • "Well Done, Son!" Guy: In some episodes PJ will try and fail to make Pete proud, mainly because Pete's standards are generally unrealistic to meet if not hypocritical or nonexistent/illusory.
  • White Gloves: Just like his father, except that sometimes he would not wear them on the show.

    Peg Pete
Voiced by: April Winchell (English), Kazue Komiya (Japanese), Angela Villanueva (Latin American Spanish), Françoise Cadol (French)

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.
  • Almighty Mom: Can tell off her misbehaving children, her husband, and outside threats as simply as glaring and yelling a line.
  • Aw, 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.
  • Girly Bruiser: Has almost exclusively traditionally feminine interests but is physically tough enough to punch out guys twice her size.
  • 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.
  • Impossible Hourglass Figure: Peg is probably among the curviest females in Disney history, with hips wider than her shoulders and a bust that, whilst not as wide as her hips, still exceeds her shoulders.
  • Make Me Wanna Shout: According to herself in "Wrecks, Lies, and Videotape", her most powerful weapon is her voice. And yes, it packs a punch.
  • 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, and even for just having a fancy night with her husband.
  • 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.

    Pistol Pete
Voiced by: Nancy Cartwright (English), Mika Kanai (Japanese), María Fernanda Morales (Latin American Spanish), Barbara Tissier (French)

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.
  • Girly Girl with a Tomboy Streak: Mostly likes traditionally girly things like tea parties and dolls but was also very interested in becoming an Ace Pilot in "Hot Air".
  • 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". Also meaningful in that it's a Mythology Gag. Pistol Pete is one of the more common names applied to her father in various shorts and other media.
  • 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
Voiced by: Frank Welker


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.

  • Ambiguous Gender: Chainsaw is normally female, but in "Cat's Entertainment" (which usually calls Chainsaw male) it goes Up to Eleven with this exchange between Pete and Pistol.
    Pete: But Chainsaw's my girl!
    Pistol: No he isn't! You gave him to Maxie, remember?
  • Chuck Cunningham Syndrome: Disappeared in the movies along with the Pete girls and Waffles.
  • Deathbringer the Adorable: Despite her violent name, aside from a few trickster habits, she's a mostly harmless cat-sized lapdog. Though who named her is never stated, it was probably Pete, and Peg usually refrains from calling her by name, opting instead to call her "Puppy."
  • Dogs Are Dumb: Lampshaded by Pete who often refers to her as "stupid Chainsaw" while speaking of her affectionately.
  • Female Feline, Male Mutt: Usually inverted. Chainsaw is generally portrayed as female.
  • Hair Decorations: Her bow.


Characters from A Goofy Movie

    Robert "Bobby" Zimmeruski
Voiced by: Pauly Shore (English), Yoku Shioya (Japanese), Arturo Mercado (Latin American Spanish), Emmanuel Garijo (French/movie 1), Cédric Dumond (French/movie 2)

Max and PJ's airheaded and rambunctious new friend in the movies. In A Goofy Movie, he gets together with Stacey.

  • Actor Allusion: Of course, in Extremely Goofy, the writers simply had to have him say, "Where ya been, buuuuuuuuuuuudee?"
  • 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: A variant on this. While he doesn't try to soak up attention, he clearly enjoys getting it and he can be a bit of a showoff. However, this is mainly due to being high on energy and low on self-restraint as opposed to craving the adoration of others. In fact, he seems to act larger than life irrespective of others. Notice his attitude while sitting in the principal's office. He's almost completely oblivious to Max and PJ's obvious terror.
  • Bunny-Ears Lawyer: A huge Cloudcuckoolander 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.
  • Cloudcuckoolander: 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.
  • Has a Type: Given his two crushes in the movies, Bobby might have a thing for redheads.
  • Heroes Want Redheads: Had a massive crush on Stacey and Beret Girl, both redheads.
  • Hopeless Suitor: To Beret Girl, though he does seem to concede (begrudgingly) that he's not the one she wants.
  • Ink-Suit Actor: He's pretty much an animated anthropromorphic animal version of Pauly Shore as he was during the 90's.
  • 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.
  • O.O.C. Is Serious Business: In An Extremely Goofy Movie, Max is convinced that he wants to transfer schools after being defeated by his own dad at his best event, because there's "only room for one Goof." PJ is devastated at the news—temporarily relapsing to the insecure and worrisome personality he'd just broken out of— and Beret Girl tells Max that he can't admit defeat, but nothing helps... until Bobby, the Plucky Comic Relief, in a dead-serious, emotionally-charged tone, gives Max a Rousing Speech.
  • 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.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: Bobby absolutely loves his "cheddar whizzy," to the point where he considers it an appropriate "fee" for his A/V expertise, will eat it straight from the aerosol can or from a massive blob in his hand, and has one with him in half the scenes he is in. The spray cheese is absent in the sequel... but he's equally eager about the "double cheesa" pizza he has at the end, and he helped his friends to immediately scarf down a big plate of nachos. Bobby really likes cheese.
  • 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, which ostensibly takes place after that film.
  • Character Tic: Roxanne has a habit of twirling her fingers through her hair whenever she either excited or shy.
  • Cute Clumsy Girl: She isn't particularly in control of her reflexes when she's around Max.
  • 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.
  • Laugh of Love: Has a tendency of slipping into nervous giggling whenever she's talking to Max, especially after Max kisses her at the end of the film.
  • 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 crashing down from the bleachers, she instead helps him up and asks if he's okay.
  • Only One Name: Despite having a parent onscreen, but of course he doesn't get a name at all.
  • Peek-a-Bangs: Her hair falls over her right eye most of the time.
  • 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.
  • She's Got Legs: In Max's dream she is shown in a very seductive dress that shows off both her shapely legs. Outside of this scene she wears relatively modest denim shorts.
  • The Ugly Guy's Hot Daughter: Her father does not look as humanoid as most of the other characters, looking far more like an actual dog. Roxanne, meanwhile, is pretty close in appearance to a human.
  • Woman in White: Appears as one in Max's dream in the beginning of the first film.

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. Possibly an Actor Allusion to her voice actress, Jenna von Oy, having a similar chatty best friend role as Six LeMure on NBC's Blossomnote 
  • Nerds Are Sexy: Bobby and at least one background character find her very attractive, with her glasses, braces, and student council position intact.
  • Nice Hat: She wears a floral hat in her scenes at school.
  • 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.

Voiced by: Tevin Campbell

A popular singer that appears in "A Goofy Movie".

  • Chuck Cunningham Syndrome: Was a massively huge pop idol in the first film, and is not even mentioned in the second.
  • Expository Hairstyle: His hair is shaped into electricity that comes out of a powerline.
  • Nice Guy: Cemented as this when he doesn't get upset or annoyed at Goofy and Max for interrupting his performance. He welcomes them instead.
  • No Celebrities Were Harmed: He is a parody of Michael Jackson and Prince.
  • The Show Must Go On: Instead of getting mad or halting his concert when Goofy and Max crash it, he just rolls with it and incorporates them in the routine.
  • Throw It In!: In-Universe. He's amazingly cool with two strangers crashing his concert, and incorporates The Perfect Cast as a new dance routine. The facial expressions he has when Goofy barges in definitely suggest an "alright, I could make some use out of this".

Characters from An Extremely Goofy Movie

    Bradley Uppercrust III
Voiced by: Jeff Bennett (English), Sukekiyo Kameyama (Japanese), Jesús Barrero (Latin American Spanish), Stéphane Ronchewski (French)

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.
  • Asshole Victim: He gets viciously thrown to a blimp by Tank, but given how much a cruel bastard he is, especially after what he did to Tank, this was 100% well-deserved.
  • Big Bad: Serves as the main antagonist of the film.
  • 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.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: Even though he loses the College X-Games to Max, he still has the courtesy to congratulate him and doesn't even debate the results. Averted when Bradley leaves Tank to die in the burning X structure, though. That act was so despicable that nobody, not even the organizers, bothers helping Bradley when Tank gives him what he deserves.
  • 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, shakes his hand, and tells him he fully intends to honor their bet. 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.
  • Laser-Guided Karma: Bradley congratulates Max for winning the College X-Games and believes he's in good company, but Tank, who is less than pleased with Bradley leaving him to die in the burning X structure, confronts him shortly thereafter and tosses him into a blimp.
  • Lean and Mean: He's thinner than most of the other characters except Goofy, and is also the Faux Affably Evil Jerk Jock
  • Not-So-Harmless Villain: He isn't just an elitist Jerk Jock who bullies freshmen, he is above all, one willing to murder rivals and those he considers losers.
  • 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 (except for a brief part when Goofy arrives).
  • 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".
  • Wealth's in a Name: Bradley Uppercrust III clearly comes from money and hangs around in the higher echelons of society. Doubles as Preppy Name.
  • You Have Outlived Your Usefulness: The Gammas are only a means to an end for Bradley. When Tank was ahead of Max in the race and could win it for him, Bradley decides Tank has overstepped his boundaries, and attempts to murder him.

    Beret Girl
Voiced by: Vicki Lewis (English), Marianne Leroux (French)

PJ's snarky and artsy girlfriend in An Extremely Goofy Movie.

  • Badass Pacifist: When the Gammas are bullying PJ and Bobby, she gets everyone's attention by shining a spotlight, loudly and publicly trash-talks Bradley without hesitation, and then manages to get everyone in the coffeehouse to rhythmically snap until he and his team express annoyance and leave. She never physically hurts anyone.
  • Beatnik: Introduced reciting slam poetry in the coffee house, wears black sweaters and a beret, has bongos in her arrangement, and uses slang such as "daddy-o" and Buddhist jargon.
  • Birds of a Feather: She and PJ are both interested in beatnik poetry, have a fairly cynical attitude, and care more about personality than appearance.
  • Dark Is Not Evil: She has dark red hair and clothing-wise, she sports a black beret (hence her name) and tight black shirt, pants and shoes; she is however a very compassionate and heroic character.
  • Deadpan Snarker: With a poetic flair to her snarking.
    Beret Girl (to Bradley): I'm dizzy right now from watching your downward spiral.
    Beret Girl (re: Bobby): Your cool balances out [snap] his fool.
  • Dude Magnet: Both Bobby and PJ quickly developed an interest in her.
  • Fiery Redhead: While she usually prefers to snark, she can become very passionate and angry given the right provocation. When giving Bradley a "The Reason You Suck" Speech, she becomes downright intimidating.
  • Hartman Hips: Is very shapely.
  • Like Parent, Like Spouse: She is both physically and mentally similar to Peg in many ways she's not like Rose Deckenbloom.
  • Masculine Girl, Feminine Boy: With PJ. They have a lot of things in common, but they also have a few major differences in that Beret Girl is bold, aggressive, and flirtatious, while PJ is a timid, passive Insecure Love Interest. The couple inverts No Guy Wants to Be Chased, as Beret Girl takes the lead at every step in their relationship and PJ enjoys this, in contrast to how Beret Girl was annoyed by Bobby's attempts at flirting moments beforehand. Beret Girl also has a significantly deeper voice than PJ, and is not much shorter, as well as going out of her way to protect him early on.
  • Nice Girl: Although she is blunt and snarky, she is also a Badass Pacifist and treats PJ with more respect than most others do, including Max.
  • Nice Hat: Her credited epithet is given because she wears a black beret in all of her appearances. When she and PJ start dating, he gets a beret of his own.
  • No Name Given: In story, no one calls her anything other than pet names, insulting nicknames, and "girl". Then she is credited as "Beret Girl."
  • Second Love: To PJ after Rose Deckenbloom. He fell for both of them because he loved their poetry.
  • Sexy Walk: She loves to sashay her hips as she walks.
  • Single Woman Seeks Good Man: For the resident Shrinking Violet Nice Guy, this is very good news. Not so much for his slightly obnoxious friend. There's not much conflict in the story itself about this relationship, mainly because it was (at least part of) the payoff for the large amount of undeserved suffering PJ went through in the series and served as the catalyst for his Character Development.
  • Talks Like a Simile: She uses metaphors in almost all of her dialogue. Fittingly, the poem she performs in her introductory scene is a series of similes for life.
  • Tall, Dark, and Snarky: She's as blunt and snarky as they come and charismatic enough for two extremely different people to fall for her. Happily, her sympathies lie entirely with the heroes'.

    Sylvia Marpole
Voiced by: Bebe Neuwirth (English), Françoise Cadol (French)

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: Sylvia has a big butt. Her pear-shaped body is enhanced when she dances with Goofy 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.
  • 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.
  • Nice Girl: While she is seen as the quiet and well mannered librarian of the college Max and Goofy attends, she is shown to be a fun loving and sweet woman on the outside, quickly revealed by Goofy upon meeting her.
  • 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.
  • Shaking the Rump: Does this briefly during the end credits dance sequence when the camera focuses on her.
  • Significant Green-Eyed Redhead: She has red hair and is also one of the only characters with visibly colored eyes at all.
  • Single Woman Seeks Good Man: Sylvia falls for the dorky, sweet-hearted Goofy.
  • 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.

Voiced By: Brad Garrett (English), Tessho Genda (Japanese), Thierry Mercier (French)

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 leaves him to die and Max's team wins the X-Games, Tank slingshots Bradley into the X-Games blimp in revenge.
  • 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 when Bradley ditches him.
  • Dumb Muscle: To a degree, although he isn't so dumb that he can't understand that Bradley betrayed him.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: To say that Tank was pissed at Bradley for leaving him to die is an understatement.
  • Heel–Face Turn: Near the end of the X-Games finals, he makes amends with Max and his team due to Bradley leaving him behind, and takes over the Gammas.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Also to a degree. As mentioned in Boisterous Bruiser, he's not the kind of guy you would want to meet, mess with or talk to, and he's easy to anger, but he does have a problem with being left behind and treated like he's being expendable, and still believes in a degree of sportsmanship during competitions despite having no problem cheating in the games. His heart of gold especially shows when he compliments Max's endurance to winning the games after he and Goofy rescue him from the collapsing X structure.
    Tank: (to Goofy) "That's some kid you got there."
  • Kick the Son of a Bitch: He tosses Bradley into a blimp in revenge for being left to die.
  • 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 so that he could win the X-Games. It doesn't go so well for Bradley.
  • 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 Known by Their Nickname: As a contrast to Bradley's insistence on his full name, legacy label and all. On the other hand, given that one of the main characters is named "Goofy," "Tank" might be his real name.
