Trivia / A Goofy Movie

Go To

  • Creator Cameo: Director Kevin Lima provides the voice for Lester the Possum.
  • Fan Nickname: "Cheez Whiz Dude" for Bobby.

  • 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, Marsden 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 Max. Justified in-universe due to Max growing up.
    • 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" the Trekkie with braces is voiced by Eddie Deezen, but when cat calling Stacey he's voiced by Dante Basco.
    • In an unusual same person scenario, Bill Farmer recorded his lines as Goofy using his normal speaking voice due to Jeffrey Katzenberg's prodding (mentioned in What Could Have Been) . After a few sessions, everyone agreed that Goofy's voice should stay the same, and Bill rerecorded his lines with the character's trademark voice.

  • Posthumous Credit: Pat Buttram voiced the Possum Park Emcee and passed away a year before the movie's release.
  • Uncredited Role: Pauly Shore was not credited as Bobby in this film, but he was credited in the sequel.
  • Unintentional Period Piece: A Goofy Movie is one of the best examples of pure undistilled Nineties in all of animation, though it wasn't meant to be, so the now-blatant 90's cliches weren't initially evident – like the slang (especially from Pauly Shore's character Bobby… and for that matter, the presence of Shore himself), the fashions especially from the characters trying to look cool, Powerline's image, and the soundtrack filled with rock jams.
  • What Could Have Been:
    • 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.

    • Jason Marsden (voice of Max) claims that Disney considered replacing Goofy's regular voice artist (Bill Farmer) for the movie in favor of Steve Martin!
    • 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 street from it.
    • Originally, a bear was going to invade the campground instead of Bigfoot.
    • This was originally intended to be released under the short-lived "Disney Movietoons" label that DuckTales the Movie: Treasure of the Lost Lamp was released under. However, the film turned out to be much higher quality than the execs expected, resulting in the film being released under the main "Walt Disney Pictures" label, and the Movietoons label being scrapped.
    • Jeff Katzenberg, who feared that audiences wouldn't take Goofy seriously for 90 minutes if he spoke in his usual cartoony voice, asked Bill Farmer to record the character's lines in his normal speaking voice to make him more relatable. 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. Of course, as He Really Can Act shows, Kevin and Roy proved otherwise.
