Trivia / A Goofy Movie

Go To

  • Adored by the Network: Toon Disney and Disney XD aired this film and its sequel often in the late 2000s and early 2010s.
  • Fan Nickname: "Cheez Whiz Dude" for Bobby.
  • Image Source:
  • Milestone Celebration: D23 hosted 20th and 25th anniversary panels, featuring much of the cast and crew. The latter was done in a conference call during the coronavirus pandemic, and included a virtual watch party for the film, live tweeted by Lima and Farmer.

  • Non-Singing Voice: Jason Marsden (from this movie onward) is now the voice of Max, though Max's singing voice is Aaron Lohr (Dean Portman). Ironically, at the 2015 D23 Expo, during a panel celebrating the film's 20th anniversary, he and Bill Farmer sang a duet of "On the Open Road" together without any prior rehearsing.
  • The Other Darrin:
    • Jason Marsden replacing Dana Hill as the de facto voice of Max, due to the latter growing up. This isn’t a bad thing either, since many people actually prefer him voicing Max.
    • In the Latin American Spanish dub, while Francisco Colmenero reprised his role as Pete, Carlos Segundo replaced Colmenero as the official voice of Goofy beginning with this movie. Segundo himself would eventually be replaced by Mario Filio.
  • The Other Marty:
    • A strange case. For his one line in "After Today" ("And up with the comics"), the Trekkie with braces is voiced by Eddie Deezen, but when cat-calling Stacey he's voiced by Dante Basco.

    • Another similar case; the little girl at the department store photo studio Goofy and Pete work with is mostly voiced by Brittany Alyse Smith. But when she begins bawling after Pete snatches away her Bambi doll, she is voiced by Elizabeth Daily, which explains why she cries like Tommy Pickles.
    • In an unusual same person scenario, Bill Farmer recorded his lines as Goofy using his normal speaking voice due to Jeffrey Katzenberg's prodding. After a few sessions, everyone agreed that Goofy's voice should stay the same, and Farmer rerecorded his lines with the character's trademark voice.
    • Bobby Brown was originally cast as Powerline, but was cut from the production due to his drug problems. A couple of the songs he recorded for the part were later reworked as tracks for his album Forever.
  • Posthumous Credit: Despite dying of kidney cancer over a year before the film's release, Pat Buttram is still credited as the voice of the emcee at Lester's Possum Park.

  • Release Date Change: Originally scheduled for Thanksgiving 1994, the film was subsequently rescheduled for Spring 1995 due to a huge production error, namely a visible black dot appearing on the screen for three-quarters of the movie, meaning that three-quarters of the film had to be reshot.
  • Role Reprise:
  • Uncredited Role: Pauly Shore is not credited as Bobby.
  • Unintentional Period Piece: One of the best exampled of pure undistilled nineties culture committed to animated film: everyone's dressed in flannel and baggy clothes, Pauly Shore plays yet another variation of his "Weasel" character, the soundtrack is full of New Jack Swing-style pop and Pete passively refers to his and Goofy's sons as "the MTV generation." It also captures the time in the mid-90s when live pay-per-view specials were big events, mainly because they were still Appointment Television; today, not only can even the biggest live events be watched on one's mobile device, but the entire broadcast can be viewed immediately after its initial airing. Like many animated examples, much of this has been dated for a couple of years by the time the movie came out, though unlike most, it's less the result of trying to capitalize on trends (save Pauly Shore, whose peak popularity at the time would come crashing down a year later thanks to Bio-Dome) and more a circumstance of a plot that's largely grounded in reality.
  • Voices in One Room: Bill Farmer mentioned how he and Jason Marsden recorded many of their lines together.
  • What Could Have Been:
    • Jeffrey Katzenberg felt that audiences wouldn't tolerate listening to Goofy's trademark cartoonie voice for ninety minutes and, at one point, considered replacing Bill Farmer with Steve Martin. When it was decided that Farmer would stay, Katzenberg instead had Farmer record Goofy's lines in his normal speaking voice instead of his "cartoony" one. However, after a few sessions, Farmer, along with director Kevin Lima and studio head Roy E. Disney, agreed that nobody wanted to hear Goofy having any voice than the one they all knew and loved, and Farmer re-recorded his lines accordingly.
    • The film was originally planned as part of Disney's short-lived "Movietoons" label created for adapting their TV shows to feature films. However, the finished film far exceeded the expectations that the execs had for it and released it under to the main "Walt Disney Pictures" label instead. DuckTales the Movie: Treasure of the Lost Lamp ended up being the only title released under the "Movietoons" label, which was retired shortly thereafter.
    • Lester's Possum Park is actually an Orphaned Punchline to a gag in which Max and Goofy would drive towards a water park that was being advertised for hundreds of miles, only for Goofy to pull into the Suck E. Cheese's directly across the road from it.note 
    • Originally, a bear was going to invade the campground instead of Bigfoot.
