Goofy is a cartoon character created in 1932 at Walt Disney Productions. Goofy is a tall, anthropomorphic dog who is the father of Max Goof and a close friend of Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck. He is normally characterized as extremely clumsy and having little intelligence, yet this interpretation isn't always definitive; occasionally Goofy is shown as intuitive and clever, albeit in his own unique, eccentric way. Originally named Dippy Dawg, he debuted in the 1932 cartoon Mickey's Revue. During the 1930s he was used extensively as part of a comedy trio with Mickey and Donald and was eventually given his own series in 1939. Even after his theatrical short series ended in 1961, he continued to star in other projects, such as the 1992 television series Goof Troop and its 1995 theatrical film, A Goofy Movie.
In the parks, he is either alone or paired with either his son Max Goof or his girlfriend/wife Clarabelle Cow.
